3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 19: 8, 9, 10, 15)

Your words, O Lord, are spirit and life.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The decree of the Lord is trustworthy,
giving wisdom to the simple.

The precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart.
The command of the Lord is clear,
enlightening the eye.

The fear of the Lord is pure,
enduring forever.
The ordinances of the Lord are true,
all of them just.

Let the words of my mouth
and the thought of my heart
find favor before You,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.



Gospel Verse (Lk 4:18cd)

The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, and to proclaim liberty to captives.
