Memorial of Maur and Placid

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

Cast your cares upon the Holy One; place your trust in God.

Canticle: Isaiah 66:10-13

Rejoice with Jerusalem;
be glad all you who love her.

Exult with Jerusalem,
all you who were mourning over her!
May you be nurtured
with the milk of her comfort.

For God says to the people,
"I will spread peace over her like a river
and the glory of the nations
like an overflowing torrent.

As nurslings, you shall be carried in her arms
and fondled in her lap.
As a parent comforts a child,
so will I comfort you.
In Jerusalem you shall find your comfort."

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
