Sober Thought of the Day
“So much the worse for those who fear wine, for it is because they have some bad thoughts which they are afraid the liquor will extract from their hearts.”
― Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
Extend your mercy towards others, so that there can
be no one in need whom you meet without helping. For what hope is there for us
if God should withdraw His Mercy from us?
–Saint Vincent de Paul
Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 115:1-2, 3-4, 15-16
R. (1ab) Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name give glory because of your mercy, because of your truth. Why should the pagans say, “Where is their God?” R. Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
Our God is in heaven; whatever he wills, he does. Their idols are silver and gold, the handiwork of men. R. Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth. Heaven is the heaven of the LORD, but the earth he has given to the children of men. R. Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
