Sober Thought of the Day
“I know we promised Haymitch, we’d do exactly what they said, but I don’t think he considered this angle.’
‘Where is Haymitch, anyway? Isn’t he supposed to protect us from this sort of thing?’ says Peeta.
‘With all that alcohol in him, it’s probably not advisable to have him around an open flame,’ I say.”
― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Today’s Saint
“The most deadly poison of our time is indifference. And this happens, although the praise of God should know no limits. Let us strive, therefore, to praise him to the greatest extent of our powers.”

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 45:10, 11, 12, 16

R. (10bc) The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.

The queen takes her place at your right hand in gold of Ophir.
R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.

Hear, O daughter, and see; turn your ear,
forget your people and your father’s house.
R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.

So shall the king desire your beauty;
for he is your lord.
R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.

They are borne in with gladness and joy;
they enter the palace of the king.
R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
