(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.”

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

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.”
