Daily Reading from the USCCB: Psalm 118:1, 8-9, 19-21, 25-27a


The Lord is coming. He is blessed and a source of blessing for His people. This psalm is a song of welcome for the Lord.

We express our confidence in the Lord and our conviction that He will grant us salvation, that He will welcome us into His holy dwelling place.

He who comes in the name of the Lord is none other than the Lord Himself, whose mercy endures forever, and who provides us a place of refuge from our enemies.

Advent is the season of coming, and in these weeks we open ourselves to the coming of the Lord into our lives.

“The Lord is God and He has given us light. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.”
