PM: Gradual Tuesdays--19th. Sunday Of Ordinary Time

There are three options, one for each of the Cycles.
Show us your mercy, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.
V. Lord, you have blessed your land, you have put an end to Jacob's captivity.
Ps. 84:8; V. 2
Revisiting one of the options for the15th. Sunday of Ordinary Time, we are again reminded of God's mercy. He will liberate us from sin and bless the land which is our lives.
Remember, O Lord, your covenant, and do not forget forever the souls of the poor.
V. Arise, O Lord, and judge your own cause; remember the scorn to which your servants have been subjected.
Ps. 79: 20, 19; V. 22, 23
The words of the Introit are again used. As we have been laid low, we ask God to restore us to our intended dignity as children of God.
Blessed is the man whose God is the Lord; the people whom he has chosen as his inheritance.
V. By the word of the Lord, the heavens were established, and all the power therein by the Spirit of his mouth.
Ps.32:12; V. 6
Also one of the options for the 23rd. Sunday of Ordinary Time, we are reminded that God created all things from nothing. As He had created us, He has also chosen and redeemed us.
