1st Week Ordinary Time


Today’s Responsorial Psalm (Ps 29:1-2, 3-4, 3, 9-10)
The Lord will bless his people with peace.

1Dear God,
I beg that you give me the gift of inner peace,
which comes to the pure of heart
and those who love you.
Protect me from myself
and my tendency to love things too much.
Help me to control my passions,
emotions and imagination.
May I avoid criticism of others,
all quarrels and contentions
in order that I may acquire
that perfect resignation to your holy will,
which brings peace
that the world cannot give.
Grant me the serenity to accept with patience
the things I cannot change
courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Amen.
