Here’s a question using next week’s Scriptures (5/26/19) From the Responsorial (Ps 67: 2-8): “May God have pity on us and bless us; may he let his face shine upon us. So may your way be known upon earth; among all nations, your salvation. / May the nations be glad and exult because you rule the peoples in equity; the nations on the earth you guide. / May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you! May God bless us, and may all the ends of the earth fear (worship) Him!” Share some reasons why we as Americans need to especially praise God.
