Spend the Day with Mary: Holy Saturday 2020 – Daily Spiritual Counsel Through This Time of Pandemic – Msgr. John Esseff Podcast

Msgr. Esseff now takes us into the richness of the Triduum. He reflects on the significance of Holy Saturday 2020 and spending the day with Mary.

Psalm 20


2The LORD answer you in time of distress;

the name of the God of Jacob defend you!

3May he send you help from the sanctuary,

from Zion be your support.a

4May he remember* your every offering,

graciously accept your burnt offering,


5Grant what is in your heart,

fulfill your every plan.

6May we shout for joy at your victory,*

raise the banners in the name of our God.

The LORD grant your every petition!


7Now I know the LORD gives victory

to his anointed.b

He will answer him from the holy heavens

with a strong arm that brings victory.

8Some rely on chariots, others on horses,

but we on the name of the LORD our God.c

9They collapse and fall,

but we stand strong and firm.d

10LORD, grant victory to the king;

answer when we call upon you.
