13th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 89:2-3, 16-17, 18-19)

For ever I will sing the goodnes of the Lord.

The promises of the Lord, I will sing forever,
through all generations my mouth shall proclaim Your faithfulness.
For You have said, "My kindness is established forever";
in heaven You have confirmed, Your faithfulness

Blessed the people who know the joyful shout;
in the light of Your countenance, O Lord, they walk.
At Your name they rejoice all the day,
and through Your justice they are exalted.

You are the splendor of their strength,
and by Your favor our horn is exalted.
For to the Lord belongs the shield,
and to the Holy One of Israel, our king.


Gospel Verse (1 Pet 2:9)

You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation; announce the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
