Response My soul is thirsting for God, the living God. When can I enter and appear before the face of God?
GospelLuke 4:24-30

R/. My soul is thirsting for God, the living God. When can I enter and appear before the face of God?

Like the deer that yearns
for running streams,
so my soul is yearning
for you, my God. R/.

My soul is thirsting for God,
the living God;
when can I enter and appear
before the face of God? R/.

O send forth your light and your truth;
they will guide me on.
They will bring me to your holy mountain,
to the place where you dwell. R/.

And I will come to the altar of God,
to God, my joy and gladness.
To you will I give thanks on the harp,
O God, my God. R/.

V/. Glory and praise to you, O Christ

R/. Glory and praise to you, O Christ

V/.I long for you, O Lord, my soul longs for his word, with the Lord there is mercy and plentiful redemption.

R/.Glory and praise to you, O Christ.

At that time: When Jesus had come to Nazareth, he said to the people in the synagogue, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown. But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heavens were shut up three years and six months, and a great famine came over all the land, and Elijah was sent to none of them but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.” When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff. But passing through their midst, he went away.
