Thursday . The First Week of Advent

Chiesa di Nostra Signora di Czestochowa
Our Lady of Czestochowa

Largo Augusto Corelli, (Zona Tor Sapienza)
Architect: Alberto Tonelli, 1971

Isaiah 26:1–6
On that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city;
   he sets up victory
   like walls and bulwarks.
Open the gates,
   so that the righteous nation that keeps faith
   may enter in.
Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace—
   in peace because they trust in you.
Trust in the Lord for ever,
   for in the Lord God 
   you have an everlasting rock.
For he has brought low
   the inhabitants of the height;
   the lofty city he lays low.
He lays it low to the ground,
   casts it to the dust.
The foot tramples it,
   the feet of the poor,
   the steps of the needy.
