Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 72:3-4, 7-8, 17
3 Mountains and hills, bring peace to the people! With justice
7 In his days uprightness shall flourish, and peace in plenty till the moon is no more.
8 His empire shall stretch from sea to sea, from the river to the limits of the earth.
17 May his name be blessed for ever, and endure in the sight of the sun. In him shall be blessed every race in the world, and all nations call him blessed.
