18th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 145:8-9, 15-16, 17-18)

The hand of the Lord feeds us; He answers all our needs.

The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The Lord is good to all
and compassionate toward all His works.

The eyes of all look hopefully to You,
and You give them their food in due season;
You open our hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is just in all His ways
and holy in all His works.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
to all who call upon Him in truth.



Gospel Verse (Mt 4:4b)

One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
