Entrance Antiphon.

Give peace, O Lord, to those who wait for you, that your prophets be found true. Hear the prayers of your servant, and of your people Israel.

First Reading: 1 Corinthians 11:17-26.33

A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

Brothers and sisters:

In the following instructions, I do not commend you,
because when you come together
it is not for the better but for the worse.
For, in the first place,
when you assemble as a Church,
I hear that there are divisions among you;
and I partly believe it,
for there must be factions among you
in order that those who are genuine among you
may be recognized.
When you meet together,
it is not the Lord’s supper that you eat.
For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal,
and one is hungry and another is drunk.
What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in?
Or do you despise the church of God
and humiliate those who have nothing?
What shall I say to you?
Shall I commend you in this?
No, I will not.

For I received from the Lord
what I also delivered to you,
that the Lord Jesus
on the night when he was betrayed
took bread,
and when he had given thanks,
he broke it, and said,
“This is my body which is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.”
In the same way, also the chalice, after supper, saying,
“This chalice is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it,
in remembrance of me.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the chalice,
you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

So then, my brothers and sisters,
when you come together to eat,
wait for one another.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 40:7-8a.8b-9.10.17 (R. 1 Cor 11:26b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. Proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

You delight not in sacrifice and offerings,
but in an open ear.
You do not ask for holocaust and victim.
Then I said, “See, I have come.”

In the scroll of the book it stands written of me:
“I delight to do your will, O my God;
your instruction lies deep within me.”

Your justice I have proclaimed
in the great assembly.
My lips I have not sealed;
you know it, O Lord.

O let there be rejoicing and gladness
for all who seek you.
Let them ever say, “The Lord is great,”
who long for your salvation.

R/. Proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son; that whosoever believes in him should have eternal life.

Gospel: Luke 7:1-10.

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
After Jesus had ended all his sayings
in the hearing of the people
he entered Capernaum.
Now a centurion had a slave who was dear to him,
who was sick and at the point of death.
When he heard of Jesus,
he sent to him elders of the Jews,
asking him to come and heal his slave.
And when they came to Jesus,
they begged him earnestly, saying,
“He is worthy to have you do this for him,
for he loves our nation,
and he built us our synagogue.”

And Jesus went with them.
When he was not far from the house,
the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him,
“Lord, do not trouble yourself,
for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof;
therefore I did not presume to come to you.
But say the word,
and let my servant be healed.

For I am a man set under authority,
with soldiers under me:
and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes;
and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes;
and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

When Jesus heard this he marvelled at him,
and turned and said to the multitude that followed him,
“I tell you,
not even in Israel have I found such faith.”

And when those who had been sent returned to the house,
they found the slave well.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.

How precious is your mercy, O God! The children of men seek shelter in the shadow of your wings.
