Sunday's Psalm--22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time

R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
raindrops on lupine leaves
O God, you are my God whom I seek;
for you my flesh pines and my soul thirsts
like the earth, parched, lifeless and without water.
cactus, Walnut Canyon, Arizona
R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
raindrops on anenome seedhead
Thus have I gazed toward you in the sanctuary
to see your power and your glory,
old growth forest at Ohanepecosh
For your kindness is a greater good than life;
my lips shall glorify you.

R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.

Thus will I bless you while I live;
lifting up my hands, I will call upon your name.
school choir singing alleluia
As with the riches of a banquet shall my soul be satisfied,
and with exultant lips my mouth shall praise you.
meal with friends in Siberia, 1998
R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
small waterfall near Paradise, Mt. Rainier National Park
You are my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I shout for joy.

My soul clings fast to you;
your right hand upholds me.

R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
