4th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)

Psalm text (Salmo 145, 7. 8-9a. 9-bc-10)

Dichosos los pobres de espíritu, porque de ellos es el Reino de los cielos.

El Señor siempre es fiel a su palabra,
y es quien hace justicia al oprimido;
él proporciona pan a los hambrientos
y libera al cautivo.

Abre el Señor los ojos de los ciegos
y alivia al agobiado.
Ama el Señor al hombre justo
y toma al forastero a su cuidado.

A la viuda y al huérfano sustenta
y trastorna los planes del inicuo.
Reina el Señor eternamente,
reina tu Dios, oh Sión, reina por siglos.

Gospel Verse (Mt 5, 12a)

Alégrense y salten de contento, porque su premio será grande en los cielos.

Psalm text (Ps 146:6-7, 8-9a, 9b-10)

Blessed are the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!

The Lord keeps faith forever,
secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets captives free.

The Lord give sight to the blind;
The Lord raises up those who were bowed down.
The Lord loves the just;
the Lord protects strangers.

The fatherless and the widow the Lord sustains,
but the way of the wicked He thwarts.
The Lord shall reign forever;
Your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia.
