Tuesday of Holy Week

Today's meditation from Catholic Culture.

And the Psalm of the day from that same site:

Psalm 21:13-22

Many bullocks surround me;
the strong bulls of Basan encircle me.
They open their mouths against me
like ravening and roaring lions.
I am like water poured out;
all my bones are racked.
My heart has become like wax
melting away within my bosom.
My throat is dried up like baked clay,
my tongue cleaves to my jaws;
to the dust of death you have brought me down.
Indeed, many dogs surround me,
a pack of evildoers closes in upon me;
They have pierced my hands and my feet;
I can count all my bones.
They look on and gloat over me;
they divide my garments among them,
and for my vesture they cast lots.
But you, O Lord, be not far from me;
O my help, hasten to aid me.
Rescue my soul from the sword,
my loneliness from the grip of the dog.
Save me from the lion's mouth;
from the horns of the wild bulls, my wretched life.
