May 25
Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

My strength has failed me; do not abandon me, O God.

Psalm 23

You are my shepherd, O God;
there is nothing I shall want.

Fresh and green are the pastures
where you give me repose.
Near restful waters you lead me,
refreshing my spirit.

You guide me along safe paths;
you are true to your name.
Though I walk in the valley of darkness,
no evil do I fear.
Your rod and staff are comfort to me.

You prepare a banquet for me
in the sight of my foes.
My head you anoint with oil;
my cup overflows.

Surely, goodness and kindness shall follow me
all the days of my life.
I shall dwell in your house forever.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
