5th Sunday of Lent (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 130:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8)

With the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption.

Out of the depths, I cry to You, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
to my voice in supplication.

If you, O Lord, mark iniquities,
Lord, who can stand?
But with You is forgiveness,
that You may be revered.

I trust in the Lord;
my soul trusts in His word.
More than sentinels wait for the dawn,
let Israel wait for the Lord.

For with the Lord is kindness
and with Him is plenteous redemption;
and He will redeem Israel
from all their iniquities.




Gospel Verse (Jn 11:25a+26)

I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord; whoever believes in Me, even if he dies, will never die.
