Psalm 66

Shout joyfully to God, all you on earth;
sing of his glorious name;
give him glorious praise.
Say to God: “How awesome your deeds!
Before your great strength your enemies cringe.
All on earth fall in worship before you;
they sing of you, sing of your name!”

Come and see the works of God,
awesome in the deeds done for us.
He changed the sea to dry land;
through the river they passed on foot.
Therefore let us rejoice in him,
who rules by might forever,
Whose eyes are fixed upon the nations.
Let no rebel rise to challenge!
Bless our God, your peoples;
loudly sound his praise,
Who has kept us alive
and not allowed our feet to slip.
You tested us, O God,
tried us as silver tried by fire.
You led us into a snare;
you bound us at the waist as captives.
You let captors set foot on our neck;
we went through fire and water;
then you led us out to freedom….

I called to the Lord with my mouth;
praise was upon my tongue.
Had I cherished evil in my heart,
the Lord would not have heard.
But God did hear
and listened to my voice in prayer.
Blessed be God, who did not refuse me
the kindness I sought in prayer.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this beautiful post. Our Blessed Mother, your spiritual mother given to you by Jesus while He was on the cross, desires to bring all men and women to her Son, Jesus. The cross that appeared is geometrically very precise and this cross is a remarkable sign for us! We must continue to fight against the evil of this world, against the devil and his demons and those humans who succumb to him. We must fight for a culture of life, not a culture of death. We must fight against the absolute slaughter of millions of… Read more »
