So, what does God do for us anyway?

Ever been asked that question? Ever wondered that yourself? Psalm 146, the responsorial psalm for this week (23rd Sunday Ordinary Time, Year B) explains it so nicely, I thought I'd quote it here (in responsory form):

A: Praise the Lord, my soul!
R: Praise the Lord, my soul!

The God of Jacob keeps faith forever,

secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets captives free.

The Lord gives sight to the blind;
the Lord raises up those who were bowed down.
The Lord loves the just;

The Lord protects strangers.

The fatherless and the widow the Lord sustains,
but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
The Lord shall reign forever;

your God, O Zion, through all generations, Alleluia.

R: Praise the Lord, my soul!

Ain't He wonderful? All this for us sinners who don't deserve his mercy!
