Malachi 3:16-4:6: he will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers

{all readings for the day: Psalm 125; Malachi 3:16-4:6; Mark 9:9-13}


Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen. (source)

Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Amen. 


Ah Holy Jesus
