29th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 121:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8)

Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

I will life up my eyes toward the mountains;
whence shall help come to me?
My help is from the Lord;
who made heaven and earth.

May He not suffer your foot to slip;
may He slumber not who guards you:
indeed He neither slumbers nor sleeps,
the guardian of Israel.

The Lord is your guardian; the Lord is your shade;
He is beside you at your right hand.
The sun shall not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will guard you from all evil;
He will guard your life.
The Lord will guard your coming and your going,
both now and forever.


Gospel Verse (Heb 4:12)

The word of God is living and effective, discerning reflections and thoughts of the heart.
