Readings on p. 1421 and Antiphons on p. 1414 of the Daily Missal.


Entrance Antiphon.

Forsake me not, O Lord, my God; be not far from me! Make haste and come to my help, O Lord, my strong salvation!


First Reading: Philippians 2:1-4

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

Brothers and sisters:

If there is any encouragement in Christ,
any incentive of love,
any participation in the Spirit,
any affection and sympathy,
complete my joy by being of the same mind,
having the same love,
being in full accord and of one mind.
Do nothing from selfishness or conceit,
but in humility count others better than yourselves.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests,
but also to the interests of others.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 131:1.2.3

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. Keep my soul in peace at your side, O Lord.

O Lord, my heart is not proud,
nor haughty my eyes.
I have not gone after things too great,
nor marvels beyond me.

Truly, I have set my soul
in tranquillity and silence.
As a weaned child on its mother,
as a weaned child is my soul within me.

O Israel, wait for the Lord,
both now and forever.

R/. Keep my soul in peace at your side, O Lord.


Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, says the Lord.


Gospel: Luke 14:12-14

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to the ruler who belonged to the Pharisees,
who had invited him,
“When you give a dinner or a banquet,
do not invite your friends or your brothers
or your kinsmen or rich neighbours,
lest they also invite you in return,
and you be repaid.
But when you give a feast,
invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind,
and you will be blessed,
because they cannot repay you.
You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
