Memorial of Saint Charles Borromeo, Bishop
Readings on p. 1427 and Antiphons on p. 1918 of the Daily Missal, Common of Pastors for a Bishop – 1.

Entrance Antiphon.
I will look after my sheep, says the Lord, and I shall appoint a shepherd to pasture them, and I, the Lord, will be their God.


First Reading: Romans 14:7-12

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

Brothers and sisters:
None of us lives to himself,
and none of us dies to himself.
If we live, we live to the Lord,
and if we die, we die to the Lord;
so then, whether we live or whether we die,
we are the Lord’s.
For to this end, Christ died and lived again,
that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.

Why do you pass judgment on your brother?
Or you, why do you despise your brother?
For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God;
for it is written,
“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall give praise to God.”
So each of us shall give account of himself to God.

The Word of the Lord.





Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 27:1.4.13-14 (R. 13)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. I believe I shall see the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living.

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
whom should I dread?

There is one thing I ask of the Lord,
only this do I seek:
to live in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord,
to inquire at his temple.

I believe I shall see the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord; be strong;
be stouthearted, and wait for the Lord!

R/. I believe I shall see the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living.


Please stand for the Gospel.

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 his 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.


Communion Antiphon.
It was not you who chose me, says the Lord, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last.
