22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 68:4-5, 6-7, 10-11)

God, in Your goodness, You have made a home for the poor.

The just rejoice and exult before God;
they are glad and rejoice.
Sing to God, chant praise to His name,
whose name is the Lord.

The father of orphans the the defender of widows
is God in His holy dwelling.
God gives a home to the forsaken;
He leads forth prisoners to prosperity.

A bountiful rain You showered down,
O God, upon Your inheritance;
You restored the land when it languished;
Your flock settled in it;
in Your goodness, O God, You provided it for the needy.


Gospel Verse (Mt 11:29ab)

Take My yoke upon you, says the Lord, and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble of heart.
