(Entrance Antiphon)

“I am the salvation of the people, says the Lord. Should they cry to me in any distress, I will hear them. I will be their Lord forever.”

Reflection:
Our faith assures us that no cry of distress will ever go unheeded by our God whose presence is our “Blessed Assurance.” 

Prayer:
Lord God, remind me during those dark fourth watches of my nights that you will come walking across the stormy waters telling me “Do not be afraid.”
