Today’s Responsorial Psalm 145:1 and 9, 10-11, 12-13ab…

R. (8) The Lord is gracious and merciful; slow to anger, and of great kindness.

I will extol you, O my God and King,
 and I will bless your name forever and ever.
The LORD is good to all
 and compassionate toward all his works.
R. The Lord is gracious and merciful; slow to anger, and of great kindness.

Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
 and let your faithful ones bless you.
Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
 and speak of your might.
R. The Lord is gracious and merciful; slow to anger, and of great kindness.

Let them make known to men your might
 and the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
Your Kingdom is a Kingdom for all ages,
 and your dominion endures through all generations.
R. The Lord is gracious and merciful; slow to anger, and of great kindness.

Reading I Isaiah 41:13-20

I am the LORD, your God,
 who grasp your right hand;
It is I who say to you, “Fear not,
 I will help you.”
Fear not, O worm Jacob,
 O maggot Israel;
I will help you, says the LORD;
 your redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
I will make of you a threshing sledge,
 sharp, new, and double-edged,
To thresh the mountains and crush them,
 to make the hills like chaff.
When you winnow them, the wind shall carry them off
 and the storm shall scatter them.
But you shall rejoice in the LORD,
 and glory in the Holy One of Israel.
The afflicted and the needy seek water in vain,
 their tongues are parched with thirst.
I, the LORD, will answer them;
 I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
I will open up rivers on the bare heights,
 and fountains in the broad valleys;
I will turn the desert into a marshland,
 and the dry ground into springs of water.
I will plant in the desert the cedar,
 acacia, myrtle, and olive;
I will set in the wasteland the cypress,
 together with the plane tree and the pine,
That all may see and know,
 observe and understand,
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
 the Holy One of Israel has created it.

Gospel Matthew 11:11-15

Jesus said to the crowds:
“Amen, I say to you,
among those born of women
there has been none greater than John the Baptist;
yet the least in the Kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 
From the days of John the Baptist until now,
the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence,
and the violent are taking it by force. 
All the prophets and the law prophesied up to the time of John. 
And if you are willing to accept it,
he is Elijah, the one who is to come. 
Whoever has ears ought to hear.”

Formed: The Message of John the Baptist

As we draw closer to the birth of our Lord, the readings that focus on John the Baptist remind us of the need to repent. John the Baptist, the new Elijah, gives us an important lesson in preparing our hearts by turning them solely to the Lord.

Today’s Action Item: Have ears to hear the message of John the Baptist.

Daily Catholic Wisdom…

My prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, Holy Spirit within me.
Here I am Lord… a remnant. Forgive me, I’m sorry, I love You.

I’m going to ‘wait on You.’ I know where my ways lead me, and I seen Your hand in my life over and over. I know You are with me, even when I feel alone. It is then that I wait… pray and surround myself in Jesus.
Thank You for walking with me, mine and theirs. For protecting and blessing us. For listening to us. For gently guiding us back to You.

Help us to wait on You. To practice what we know to be true. Not what the world says. You have shown us, and Your voice speaks to us. Give us ears to hear.
Not my will, but Yours Lord God.
Jesus, Mary, I love You, save souls.
In Jesus name I pray.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Apostles (Nicene) Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
Amen.

Lords Prayer

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

O my Jesus

O my Jesus, have mercy on us. Forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Take all souls into heaven, especially, those most in need of thy mercy.
Amen.

Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Amen.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, make me holy. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, fill me with love. Water from Christ’s side, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. Good Jesus, hear me. Within your wounds, hide me. Never let me be parted from you. From the evil enemy, protect me. At the hour of my death, call me. And tell me to come to you. That with your saints I may praise you. Through all eternity.
Amen.
