Entrance Antiphon
You are just, O Lord, and your judgement is right; treat your servant in accord with your merciful love.


First Reading: 1 Timothy 1:1-2.12-14

The beginning of  the First Letter of Saint Paul to Timothy.

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus
by command of God our Saviour and of Christ Jesus our hope,

To Timothy, my true child in the faith:
Grace, mercy, and peace
from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

I thank him who has given me strength for this,
Christ Jesus our Lord
because he judged me faithful by appointing me to his service,
though I formerly blasphemed and persecuted and insulted him;
but I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief,
and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me
with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

The Word of the Lord



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 16:1-2a & 5.7-8.11 (R. see 5a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. It is you, O Lord, who are my portion.

Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord.
O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup;
you yourself who secure my lot.

I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel,
who even at night directs my heart.
I keep the Lord before me always;
with him at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

You will show me the path of life,
the fullness of joy in your presence,
at your right hand, bliss forever.

R/. It is you, O Lord, who are my portion.

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
Your word, O Lord, is truth; sanctify us in the truth.



Gospel: Luke 6:39-42

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus told his disciples a parable:
“Can a blind man lead a blind man?
Will they not both fall into a pit?
A disciple is not above his teacher,
but everyone, when he is fully taught, will be like his teacher.
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye,
but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
Or how can you say to your brother,
‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’
when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye?
You hypocrite,
first take the log out of your own eye,
and then you will see clearly
to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.”

The Gospel of the Lord

Communion Antiphon
Like the deer that yearns for running streams, so my soul is yearning for you, my God; my soul is thirsting for God, the living God.
