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


First Reading: Colossians 1:24-2:3

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

Brothers and sisters:
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake,
and in my flesh,
I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions
for the sake of his body,
that is, the church,
of which I became a minister
according to the divine office which was given to me for you,
to make the word of God fully known,
the mystery hidden for ages and generations
but now made manifest to his saints.
To them, God chose to make known
how great among the Gentiles
are the riches of the glory of this mystery,
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Him we proclaim,
warning every person and teaching every person in all wisdom,
that we may present every person mature in Christ.
For this, I toil,
striving with all the energy
which he mightily inspires within me.

For I want you to know how greatly I strive for you,
and for those at Laodicea,
and for all who have not seen my face,
that their hearts may be encouraged
as they are knit together in love,
to have all the riches of assured understanding
and the knowledge of God’s mystery,
of Christ,
in whom are hidden
all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 62:6-7.9 (R. 8a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. In God is my salvation and glory.

In God alone be at rest, my soul,
for my hope is from him.
He alone is my rock, my salvation,
my fortress; never shall I falter.

Trust him at all times, O people.
Pour out your hearts before him,
for God is our refuge.

R/. In God is my salvation and glory.

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
and I know them. And they follow me.





Gospel: Luke 6:6-11

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

It happened that, on a sabbath,
when Jesus entered the synagogue and taught,
a man was there whose right hand was withered.
And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him,
to see whether he would heal on the sabbath
so that they might find an accusation against him.
But he knew their thoughts,
and he said to the man who had the withered hand,
“Come and stand here.”
And he rose and stood there.
And Jesus said to them, “I ask you,
is it lawful on the sabbath to do good or to do harm,
to save life or to destroy it?”
And he looked around on them all,
and said to him, “Stretch out your hand.”
And he did so,
and his hand was restored.
But they were filled with fury
and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.

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.
