16th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 86:5-6, 9-10, 15-16)

Lord, You are good and forgiving.

You, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
abounding in kindness to all who call upon You.
Hearken, O Lord, to my prayer
and attend to the sound of my pleading.

All the nations You have made shall come and worship You, O Lord,
and glorify Your name.
For You are great, and You do wondrous deeds;
You alone are God.

You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in kindness and fidelity.
Turn toward me, and have pity on me;
give Your strength to Your servant.

Gospel Verse (cf Mt 11:25)

Blessed are You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; You have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.
