Christ the King (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5-6)

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In verdant pastures He give me repose.

Beside restful waters He leads me;
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths
for His name's sake.

You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

Only goodness and kindness follow me
all he days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
for years to come.



Gospel Verse (Mk 11:9b+10a)

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come!
