               SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
                                     July 24, 2016
O God, protector of those who hope in you, without whom nothing has firm foundation, nothing is holy, bestow in abundance your mercy upon us and grant that, with you as our ruler and guide, we may use the good things that pass in such a way as to hold fast even now to those that ever endure. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who live and reign with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
