With UsJesus Falls Again

Jesus’ voice    This seventh step, My other self, 
                       
is one that tests your will. 
                       
From this fall learn to persevere 
                       
in doing good. 
                       
The time will come 
                       
when all your efforts seem to fail 
                       
and you will think, 
                       
“I can’t go on.” 
                       
Then turn to Me, 
                       
My heavy-laden one, 
                       
and I will give you rest. 
                       
Trust Me 
                       
and carry on.

Response 7      Give me your courage, Lord. 
                       
When failure presses  

                       
heavily on me 
                       
and I am desolate, 
                       
stretch out Your hand 
                       
to lift me up. 
                       
I know I must not cease, 
                       
but persevere, 
                       
in doing good. 
                       
But help me, Lord. 
                       
Alone there’s nothing I can do. 
                       
With You, I can do anything  
                       
You ask. 
                       
I will.

Second Reading:

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews

 

“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds,” he also adds, “I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.”  Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.  Therefore, my friends, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain (that is, through his flesh), and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.  Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful.  And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

The Word of the Lord.  
Thanks be to God.
