Introit                                                                                                                     Ps. 91:1-2, 9-10, 13; antiphon: Ps. 91:15a, c, 16


When he calls to me, I will | answer him;*
  I will rescue him and | honor him.
With long life I will sat- | isfy him*
  and show him my sal- | vation.
He who dwells in the shelter of the | Most High*
  will abide in the shadow of the Al- | mighty.
I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my | fortress,*
  my God, in | whom I trust.”
Because you have made the LORD your | dwelling place—*
  the Most High, who is my | refuge—
no evil shall be allowed to be- | fall you,*
  no plague come | near your tent.
You will tread on the lion and the | adder;*
  the young lion and the serpent you will trample | underfoot.
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

When he calls to me, I will | answer him;*
  I will rescue him and | honor him.
With long life I will sat- | isfy him*
  and show him my sal- | vation.

 O Lord God, You led Your ancient people through the wilderness and brought them to the promised land. Guide the people of Your Church that following our Savior we may walk through the wilderness of this world toward the glory of the world to come; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
