Sober Thought of the Day
“I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
after four I’m under my host.”
― Dorothy Parker, The Collected Dorothy Parker

In this Psalm God lets us know that He guides us in his truth, provides us guidelines for living through the Word and tradition of the Church. We can never go wrong or be unsatisfied if we allow ourselves to be guided and taught the paths given to us by our Lord. Number 9

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 25:4-5AB, 6 AND 7BC, 8-9

R. (6a) Remember your mercies, O Lord.

Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my savior.
R. Remember your mercies, O Lord.

Remember that your compassion, O LORD,
and your kindness are from of old.
In your kindness remember me,
because of your goodness, O LORD.
R. Remember your mercies, O Lord.

Good and upright is the LORD;
thus he shows sinners the way.
He guides the humble to justice,
he teaches the humble his way.
R. Remember your mercies, O Lord.

Today’s Saint
“The joy promised by the Beatitudes is the very joy of Jesus himself: a joy sought and found in obedience to the Father and in the gift of self to others. …By looking at Jesus you will learn what it means to be poor in spirit, meek and merciful; what it means to seek justice, to be pure in heart, to be peacemakers.” Pope John Paul II (Welcoming Address, 4, 5)

  1. Much as I enjoy Dorothy Parker, I love the Psalm better. The girl who sang this on the televised daily mass today had the most beautiful crystal-clear voice. It’s on YouTube. I’ll find it for you.

    • Yes. Definitely! I feel like as alcoholics we can be just too serious sometimes so I throw in humor to lighten things up for my target audience. I’ve always been this way. Growing up I would always say or do something to get a laugh if sibling rivalries got too heated!
