“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 103:1-4




Bless the Lord, O my soul;

and all my being, bless His holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

and forget not all His benefits.


He pardons all your iniquities,

He heals all your ills.

He redeems your life from destruction,

He crowns you with kindness and compassion.


– Psalm 103:1-4 (NAB)




REFLECTION…by Pope Francis…


“Praying is negotiating with the Lord,

even becoming inappropriate with the Lord.

Praying is praising the Lord in the beautiful things He shares

and telling Him to bestow these beautiful things on us.

And (appealing to Him) who is so merciful, so good, to help us!”


Pope Francis urges everyone to spend just five minutes each day praying Psalm 103:

“Pray all of this psalm

and with this we learn the things we must say to the Lord when we request a grace.

‘You who are Merciful and forgiving, grant me this grace…’

just as Abraham did and as Moses did.

We forge ahead in prayer, courageous,

and with these motivations which come right from the heart of God Himself.”






“Praise the Lord with all that you are yourselves,

for not only your tongue and your voice should praise the Lord,

but also your conscience, your life and your deeds…

If we never stop living a good life,

we are praising the Lord unceasingly.”


– St. Augustine






Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all my being, bless His holy name!
