Sirach 35,15-17.20-22

Do the widow's tears not run down her cheeks, as she accuses the man who is the cause of them?

Whoever wholeheartedly serves God will be accepted, his petitions will carry to the clouds.

The prayer of the humble pierces the clouds: and until it does, he is not to be consoled,

until he has crushed the loins of the merciless and exacted vengeance on the nations,

until he has eliminated the hordes of the arrogant and broken the sceptres of the wicked,

until he has repaid all people as their deeds deserve and human actions as their intentions merit,
