   Psalm 43:3-4, Judica me, Deus

O send out thy light and thy truth, that they may lead me: and bring me unto thy holy hill,
and to thy dwelling.
And that I may go unto the altar of God,
even unto the God of my joy and gladness:
and upon the harp will I give thanks unto thee, O God my God.

Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Priory Anglican Church in America Directions And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also, that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
