August 10

St. Lawrence

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

O God, you are the rock of our strength. Teach us to walk the path of truth.

Psalm 119 (Samech)

I have no love for divided hearts.
My love is for your law, O God.
You are my shelter, my refuge.
I hope in your word.

Leave me, all who do evil;
I will keep God's command.

Uphold me, O God, according to your word,
and I shall live,
and do not fail me in my hope.

You disown all who turn away from your law;
they deceive only themselves.
The wicked count as nothing.

I tremble before you,
standing in awe of your decrees.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
