August 14

St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

Walk in the presence of the Holy One. Give thanks to the God of gods.

Canticle: Isaiah 12:1-6

"I give you thanks, O God.
Your anger toward me has lessened;
you have consoled me.

God indeed is my security;
I am confident and unafraid.
My strength and my courage are in God."

With joy Israel will draw water
at the fountain of salvation
and say on that day:

"Give thanks and acclaim the name of God.
Sing praise for God's glorious achievements.
Let this be known throughout all the earth.

Shout with exultation, O city of Zion,
for great in your midst is the God of Israel!"

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
