Antiphons and readings on p.1580 of the Daily Missal


First Reading: 1 Peter 4:7b-11

A reading from the first Letter of Saint Peter

Brothers and sisters:

Keep sane and sober for your prayers.
Above all hold unfailing your love for one another,
since love covers a multitude of sins.
Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another.
As each has received a gift,
employ it for one another,
as good stewards of God’s varied grace:
whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God;
whoever renders service,
as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies;
in order that in everything
God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.
To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

The word of the Lord.



Responsorial psalm: Psalm 96: 1-2a, 2b-3, 7-8a, 9-10a & c ( 3)

R/. Tell among all the peoples the wonders of the Lord!

O sing a new song to the Lord;
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
O sing to the Lord; bless his name.

Proclaim his salvation day by day.
Tell among the nations his glory,
and his wonders among all the peoples.

Give the Lord, you families of peoples,
give the Lord glory and power;
give the Lord the glory of his name.

Worship the Lord in holy splendour.
O tremble before him, all the earth.
Say to the nations, “The Lord is king.”
he will judge the peoples in fairness.

R/. Tell among all the peoples the wonders of the Lord!


Glory and praise to you, O Christ.
Follow me, says the Lord, and I will make you become fishers of men.
Glory and praise to you, O Christ.


Gospel: Luke 5: 1-11

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time:
While the people pressed upon Jesus
to hear the word of God,
he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret.
And he saw two boats by the lake;
but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets.
Getting into one of the boats,
which was Simon’s,
he asked him to put out a little from the land.
And he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
And when he had ceased speaking,
he said to Simon,
“Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”
And Simon answered,
“Master, we toiled all night and took nothing!
But at your word I will let down the nets.”
And when they had done this,
they enclosed a great shoal of fish;
and as their nets were breaking,
they beckoned to their partners in the other boat
to come and help them.
And they came and filled both the boats,
so that they began to sink.
But when Simon Peter saw it,
he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying,
“Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.”
For he was astonished, and all that were with him,
at the catch of fish which they had taken;
and so also were James and John,
sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon.
And Jesus said to Simon,
“Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching people.”
And when they had brought their boats to land,
they left everything and followed him.
