3rd Sunday of Lent (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 103:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8+11)

The Lord is kind and merciful.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all my being bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits.

He pardons all your iniquities,
and heals all your ills.
He redeems you life from destruction,
crowns you with kindness and compassion.

The Lord secures justice
and the rights of all the oppressed.
He has made His way known to Moses,
and His deeds to the children of Israel.

Merciful and gracious is the Lord,
slow to anger and abounding in kindness.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so surpassing is His kindness to those who fear Him.


Gospel Verse (Mt 4:17)

Repent, says the Lord; the kingdom of God is at hand.
