“Our prayer is for all those persons who clean hospitals, the streets, who empty dumpsters, who go to each house to remove trash. It is a work that no one sees, but it is a job that is necessary to survive. May the Lord bless them and help them.

Today in the world, there is a great feeling of being orphaned: many have many things, but the Father is missing. And this is repeated in the history of mankind: when the Father is missing, something is missing and there is always a desire to find, to rediscover the Father… always looking for the missing Father. Today we can say that we live in a society where the Father is missing, a sense of being orphans that affects one’s belonging and fraternity. Let us ask the Holy Spirit to remind us always, always, how to access the Father, to remind us that we have a Father. And to this civilization that has a huge sense of being orphaned, may He grant the grace of finding the Father once again, the Father who provides everyone with a sense of meaning in life. May He make all men and women one family.”

Psalm 148

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Praise the LORD from the heavens;
praise him in the heights.
Praise him, all you his angels;
praise him, all you his hosts.

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Let the kings of the earth and all peoples,
the princes and all the judges of the earth,
Young men too, and maidens,
old men and boys.

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;
His majesty is above earth and heaven.

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

He has lifted up the horn of his people;
Be this his praise from all his faithful ones,
from the children of Israel, the people close to him.

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
