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.


First Reading: Romans 4:1-8

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans.

Brothers and sisters:
What then shall we say about Abraham,
our ancestor according to the flesh?
For if Abraham was justified by works,
he has something to boast about,
but not before God.
For what does the scripture say?
“Abraham believed God,
and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.”
Now to one who works,
his wages are not reckoned as a gift but as his due.
And to one who does not work
but trusts him who justifies the ungodly,
his faith is reckoned as righteousness.
So also David pronounces a blessing upon the person
to whom God reckons righteousness apart from works:
“Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven,
and whose sins are covered;
blessed is the one against whom
the Lord will not reckon his sin.”

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 32:1-2.5.11 (R. see 7)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. You are a hiding place for me,
you surround me with deliverance.

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is remitted.
Blessed the man to whom the Lord imputes no guilt,
in whose spirit is no guile.

To you I have acknowledged my sin;
my guilt I did not hide.
I said, “I will confess my transgression to the Lord.”
And you have forgiven the guilt of my sin.

Rejoice in the Lord; exult, you just!
Ring out your joy, all you upright of heart!

R/. You are a hiding place for me,
you surround me with deliverance.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
May your merciful love be upon us, as we hope in you, O Lord.



Gospel: Luke 12:1-7

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
When so many thousands of the multitude
had gathered together
that they trod upon one another,
Jesus began to say to his disciples first,
“Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees,
which is hypocrisy.
Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed
or hidden that will not be known.
Whatever you have said in the dark
shall be heard in the light,
and what you have whispered in private rooms
shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

“I tell you, my friends,
do not fear those who kill the body,
and after that have no more that they can do.
But I will warn you whom to fear:
fear him who, after he has killed,
has power to cast into hell;
yes, I tell you, fear him!
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies?
And not one of them is forgotten before God.
Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not;
you are of more value than many sparrows.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
I will sing forever of your mercies, O Lord through all ages my mouth will proclaim your truth.
