Jubilee Year of Mercy

Our Parish Spiritual Work Of Mercy for the month of September is Instruct the Uninformed (Teach by Example)

Teacher God – Help parents to know when to let go and when to hold tight. Let parents feel respected and loved.


Continuing with our reflection on the psalms of mercy, we will be praying Psalm 130 throughout the month of September.

Psalm 130: With the Lord

With the Lord there is mercy and the fullness of redemption, call to Him in your trials, He will answer whenever you call.

  1. Out of the depths I cry to you, I cry to you, O Lord. Lord, open your ears and hear my voice, attend to the sound of my plea.
  2. If you O Lord, should mark our guilt, then, Lord, who could hope to survive? But with you is found forgiveness of sin, and mercy that we might revere you.
  3. Trust in the Lord, count on His word, wait for the Lord, my soul. I will wait for the Lord all the days of my life as sentinels wait for the dawn.
  4. More than the sentinels wait for the dawn, let Israel wait for the Lord. For kindness is His, redemption for all, forgiveness of sins for His people.
