Today the church celebrates Saturday of the 1st Week in Ordinary Time. Let us pray. Almighty and most gentle God who brought forth from the rock a fountain of living water for your thirsty people, bring forth, we pray, from the hardness of our heart, tears of sorrow that we may lament our sins and merit forgiveness from Your mercy. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever. Amen.
