Journey with the Pope – 25-3-2020

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25, 2020

“In these days of trial, as humanity trembles at the threat of the [coronavirus] pandemic, I would propose that all Christians join their voices together to heaven. I invite the heads of the churches and the leaders of all the Christian communities, together with all Christians of the various confessions, to invoke the Almighty, the All Powerful God, by reciting contemporaneously the prayer that Our Lord Jesus has taught us.  I therefore invite everyone to recite the Our Father at midday on March 25…On the day when many
                                                                                       Christians recall the annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the
                                                                                          Incarnation of the Word, so that the Lord may listen to the
                                                                                           unanimous prayer of all his disciples that are preparing to
                                                                                                          celebrate the victory of the Risen Christ. ”    
Pope Francis
 
 

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

Psalm 40

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,
but ears open to obedience you gave me.
Holocausts or sin-offerings you sought not;
then said I, “Behold I come.”

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

“In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
To do your will, O my God, is my delight,
and your law is within my heart!”

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

I announced your justice in the vast assembly;
I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

Your justice I kept not hid within my heart;
your faithfulness and your salvation I have spoken of;
I have made no secret of your kindness and your truth
in the vast assembly.

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.


Blessings from Team MISSIO!
