3rd Sunday of Easter (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 15)

Show us, Lord, the path of life.

Preserve me, God, I take refuge in you.
I say to the Lord: 'You are my God.'
O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup;
it is you yourself who are my prize.

I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel,
who even at night directs my heart.
I will keep the Lord ever in my sight;
since he is at my right hand, I shall stand firm.

And so my heart rejoices, my soul is glad;
even my body shall rest in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead,
nor let your beloved know decay.

You will show me the path of life,
the fullness of joy in your presence,
at your right hand happiness forever.

Gospel Verse

Lord Jesus, explain the scriptures to us. Make our hearts burn within us as you talk to us.

Psalm text (Ps 16:1-2a+5, 7-8, 9-10, 11)

Lord, You will show us the path of life.

Keep me, O God, for in You I take refuge;
I say to the Lord, "My Lord are You."
O Lord, my allotted portion and my cup,
You it is who hold fast my lot.

I bless the Lord who counsels me;
even in the night my heart exhorts me.
I set the Lord ever before me;
with Him at my right hand, I shall not be disturbed.

Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
my body, too, abides in confidence;
because You will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
nor will You suffer Your faithful one to undergo corruption.

You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in Your presence,
the delights at Your right hand forever.

Gospel Verse (cf Lk 24:32)

Lord Jesus, open the Scriptures to us; make our hearts burn while You speak to us.
