February 17
Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

To God lift up your voice, singing a song of rejoicing.

Psalm 75

We give thanks to you, O God.
As we recount your wonderful deeds,
we give thanks, remembering your name.
Your words are warning to the proud:

“When I reach the appointed time,
I will judge with justice.
Though the earth and all creation trembles,
I will uphold its pillars.

To the boastful I say, ‘Do not boast,’
to the wicked, ‘Do not flaunt your strength
nor speak with insolent pride.’”

Judgment comes from neither east nor west,
from neither desert nor mountain,
but from God alone.
One is humbled; another is exalted.

God holds a cup full of wine,
foaming and spiced.
This cup of wrath is poured out;
all the wicked on the earth must drink it.

As for me, I will rejoice
and sing psalms to God,
to God who breaks the power of the wicked
and exalts the strength of the just.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
