Sunday's Psalm--Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time


Blessed the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!
 The LORD keeps faith forever,
secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets captives free.

 Blessed the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!


 
The LORD gives sight to the blind;


the LORD raises up those who were bowed down.


The LORD loves the just;


the LORD protects strangers.










Blessed the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!

The fatherless and the widow the LORD sustains,
but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
The LORD shall reign forever;
your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia.

Blessed the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!


from Psalm 146, response from Matthew 5:3

It is me who has to thank YOU for participating with such wonderful impressions.
It is indeed a challenge to keep this theme going for the next 145 weeks - yet am hopeful, as I would love to see you again and again and again.

Please have a good Sunday.
