Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time - A

R. The Lord is kind and merciful, slow to anger, and rich in compassion.

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
     and all within me, his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
     and never forget all his benefits.

It is the Lord who forgives all your sins,
     who heals every one of your ills,
who redeems your life from the grave,
     who crowns you with mercy and compassion.

He will not always find fault;
     nor persist in his anger forever.
He does not treat us according to our sins,
     nor repay us according to our faults.

For as the heavens are high above the earth,
     so strong his mercy for those who fear him.
As far as the east is from the west,
     so far from us does he remove our transgressions.
