Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – Cycle C

Readings on p. 1044 and Antiphons on p.1039 of the Daily Missal.

 

First Reading: Deuteronomy 30:10-14

A reading from the Book of Deuteronomy.
Moses spoke to the people, saying, 
“You shall obey the voice of the Lord your God, 
and keep his commandments and his statutes 
which are written in this book of the law 
and turn to the Lord your God with all your heart 
and with all your soul.

“For this commandment which I command you this day 
is not too hard for you, 
neither is it far off. 
It is not in heaven, 
that you should say, 
‘Who will go up for us to heaven, 
and bring it to us, 
that we may hear it and do it?’ 
Neither is it beyond the sea, 
that you should say, 
‘Who will go over the sea for us, 
and bring it to us, 
that we may hear it and do it?’ 
But the word is very near you; 
it is in your mouth and in your heart 
so that you can do it.”

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 19:7.8.9.10 (R. 8a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The precepts of the Lord are right; they gladden the heart.

The law of the Lord is perfect;
it revives the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are steadfast;
they give wisdom to the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right;
they gladden the heart.
The command of the Lord is clear;
it gives light to the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is pure,
abiding forever.
The judgments of the Lord are true;
they are, all of them, just.
They are more to be desired than gold,
than quantities of gold.
And sweeter are they than honey,
than honey flowing from the comb.

R/. The precepts of the Lord are right; they gladden the heart.

 

 

Second Reading: Colossians 1:15-20

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

Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God, 
the first-born of all creation; 
for in him, all things were created, 
in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, 
whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities—
all things were created through him and for him. 
He is before all things, 
and in him, all things hold together. 
He is the head of the body, the church; 
he is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, 
that in everything he might be pre-eminent. 
For in him all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell, 
and through him to reconcile to himself all things, 
whether on earth or in heaven, 
making peace by the blood of his cross.

The Word of the Lord.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; you have the words of eternal life. 
Alleluia.

 

Gospel: Luke 10:25-37

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time: 
Behold, a lawyer stood up to put Jesus to the test, saying, 
“Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”
He said to him, “What is written in the law? 
What do you read there?”
And he answered, 
“You shall love the Lord your God 
with all your heart, 
and with all your soul, 
and with all your strength, 
and with all your mind; 
and your neighbour as yourself.”

And he said to him, “You have answered right; 
do this, and you will live.”
But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, 
“And who is my neighbour?”
Jesus replied, 
“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, 
and he fell among robbers, 
who stripped him and beat him, and departed, 
leaving him half dead. 
Now by chance, a priest was going down that road, 
and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 
So likewise a Levite, 
when he came to the place and saw him, 
passed by on the other side.

But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was; 
and when he saw him, he had compassion, 
and went to him and bound up his wounds, 
pouring on oil and wine; 
then he set him on his own beast 
and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 
And the next day he took out two denarii 
and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, 
‘Take care of him; 
and whatever more you spend, 
I will repay you when I come back.’

Which of these three, do you think, 
proved neighbour to the man who fell among the robbers?”
He said, “The one who showed mercy on him.”
And Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
