First Reading: Philippians 3: 3-8a

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

Brothers and sisters:

We are the true circumcision,
who worship God in spirit,
and glory in Christ Jesus,
and put no confidence in the flesh.
Though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also.
If any other man thinks he has reason
for confidence in the flesh, I have more:
circumcised on the eighth day,
of the people of Israel,
of the tribe of Benjamin,
a Hebrew born of Hebrews;
as to the law a Pharisee,
as to zeal a persecutor of the Church,
as to righteousness under the law blameless.
But whatever gain I had,
I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
Indeed I count everything as loss
because of the surpassing worth
of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 105:2-3.4-5.6-7 (R. 3b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. Let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.

O sing to him, sing his praise;
tell all his wonderful works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.

Turn to the Lord and his strength;
constantly seek his face.
Remember the wonders he has done,
his marvels and his words of judgment.

O children of Abraham, his servant,
O descendants of the Jacob he chose,
he, the Lord, is our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.

R/. Let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, says the Lord.


Gospel: Luke 15:1-10

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
The tax collectors and sinners
were all drawing near to hear Jesus.
And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying,
“This man receives sinners and eats with them.”

So he told them this parable:
“What man of you, having a hundred sheep,
if he has lost one of them,
does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness,
and go after the one which is lost,
until he finds it?

And when he has found it,
he lays it on your shoulders, rejoicing.
And when he comes home,
he calls together his friends and his neighbours,
saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me,
for I have found my sheep which was lost.’
Just so, I tell you,
there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons
who need no repentance.

“Or what woman,
having ten silver coins,
if she loses one coin,
does not light a lamp
and sweep the house and seek diligently
until she finds it?
And when she has found it,
she calls together her friends and neighbours, saying,
‘Rejoice with me,
for I have found the coin which I had lost.’
Just so, I tell you,
there is joy before the angels of God
over one sinner who repents.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
