September 25
Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

I will sing a new song to God, to the Giver of Life a hymn of praise.

Psalm 52

Why do you glory in your wickedness,
you champions of evil?
Why do you plot destruction?
Your tongue is razor sharp;
your life, a web of deceit.

You prefer evil to good,
lies to truth.
You seek the ruin of the just.

For this you will be destroyed,
snatched from your dwelling place,
uprooted from the land of the living.

Seeing this, the just will say,
"So much for those who refused God's strength!
They trusted in greatness of wealth
and grew powerful through crime."

But I am like an olive tree,
growing in the house of God.
In the presence of all the faithful
I will trust and give thanks,
proclaiming the goodness of God.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
