Fourth Saturday in Lent

Psalm 102Jeremiah 23:9-15Romans 9:1-18 John 6:60-71

Psalm 102:1-2: “Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry come to you. Do not hide your face from me in the day of my distress. Incline your ear to me; answer me speedily in the day when I call.

Romans 9:14-15: “What then are we to say? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.’ ”

Gather up
In the arms of your pity
The sick, the depraved
The desperate, the tired
All the scum
Of our weary city
Gather up
In the arms of your pity
Gather up
In the arms of your love –
Those who expect
No love from above.

Langston Hughes
