If at all times you remain hidden in Jesus Christ, you will see the truth of the words of Isaiah, which will be fulfilled in you: "With joy you will draw water from the wells of the Saviour", and also the words of the Gospel, which says: "Whoever drinks the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again." St. Paul of the Cross



morning Morning

O God, you are my God,
for you I long;
for you my soul is thristing.
I long for you
like dry, weary land without water.
Give me your strength and your glory.

I wish to praise you all my life
fill my soul as with a banquet.
I cling to you;
hold me close in your hands.
Psalm 63

Glory to the Father. . .

Reading

Jesus said,

"Whoever drinks the water I give will never be thirsty;
no, the water I give shall become a fountain within him,
leaping up to provide eternal life."
The woman said to him, "Give me this water, sir,
so that I shall not grow thirsty...."
Jn 4:14-15

Intercessions

Blessed are you, Lord Jesus, Savior of the world,for giving your life to save us,
--by your precious blood we are saved.
You promised living waters to those who seek the truth,
--give us that water to quench our thirst.
You sent disciples to announce the Good News to all people,
--sustain those who proclaim your word.
To those who carry your cross today in anguish,
--grant patience and courage.

evening Evening

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose.
Beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths for his name's sake.
Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil;
for you are at my side with your rod and your staff
that give me courage.
You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Only goodness and kindess follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.
Psalm 23

Glory to the Father. . .

Reading

Jesus said.

"I am the good shepherd,
I know my sheep and my sheep know me
in the same way that the Father knows me
and I know my Father;
For these sheep I will give my life."
John 10:14-15

Intercessions

We bless you, Jesus Christ, our Shepherd,
for the life you have given us this day;
--we rejoice in your love.
Look with favor on the flock that bears your name;
--let no one the Father has give you perish.
Guide your church in the way of your Truth,
--by your Holy Spirit make her faithful.
Feed us at the table of your Word and your Bread
--that we may follow you forever.
