Journey With The Pope – 27/6/2020

SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 2020
“Prayer gives us nobility. It is capable of securing our relationship with God who is the true Companion on the journey of every man and woman, in the midst of life’s thousand adversities; good or bad, but always prayer: Thank you, Lord. I am afraid, Lord. Help me, Lord. Forgive me, Lord. Because the nobility of prayer leaves us in God’s hands. Those hands wounded by love: the only sure hands we have.”
Pope Francis

Psalm 74

Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.

Why, O God, have you cast us off forever?
Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?
Remember your flock which you built up of old,
the tribe you redeemed as your inheritance,
Mount Zion, where you took up your abode.

Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.

Turn your steps toward the utter ruins;
toward all the damage the enemy has done in the sanctuary.
Your foes roar triumphantly in your shrine;
they have set up their tokens of victory.
They are like men coming up with axes to a clump of trees.

Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.

With chisel and hammer they hack at all the paneling of the sanctuary.
They set your sanctuary on fire;
the place where your name abides they have razed and profaned.

Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.

Look to your covenant,
for the hiding places in the land and the plains are full of violence.
May the humble not retire in confusion;
may the afflicted and the poor praise your name.

Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.
