Antiphon

O Defender of the Poor, Come

Scripture

Psalm 72:4 May the ruler defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, …

Prayerful Reflection:

O Defender of the Poor, Come~
Create in us generous hearts.
Open our eyes to see your presence,
in the cries of the hungry and the thirsty,
the naked and the lonely,
and the imprisoned.
Remind us that as we treat the needy,
we treat your son, Jesus.
Whatever we do for the least
of our brothers and sisters,
we do for him.
Stretch hearts to be open and
responsive to the pleas of the poor.
Amen.
