Readings at Mass

Liturgical Colour: White.


First readingRomans 6:19-23 ©
If I may use human terms to help your natural weakness: as once you put your bodies at the service of vice and immorality, so now you must put them at the service of righteousness for your sanctification.
  When you were slaves of sin, you felt no obligation to righteousness, and what did you get from this? Nothing but experiences that now make you blush, since that sort of behaviour ends in death. Now, however, you have been set free from sin, you have been made slaves of God, and you get a reward leading to your sanctification and ending in eternal life. For the wage paid by sin is death; the present given by God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 106(107):2-3,10,13-15 ©
O give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his love has no end.
Let them say this, the Lord’s redeemed,
  whom he redeemed from the hand of the foe
and gathered from far-off lands,
  from east and west, north and south.
O give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his love has no end.
Some lay in darkness and in gloom,
  prisoners in misery and chains.
Then they cried to the Lord in their need
  and he rescued them from their distress.
O give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his love has no end.
He led them forth from darkness and gloom
and broke their chains to pieces.
Let them thank the Lord for his goodness,
  for the wonders he does for men.
O give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his love has no end.

Gospel AcclamationJn10:14
Alleluia, alleluia!
I am the good shepherd, says the Lord;
I know my own sheep and my own know me.
Alleluia!

GospelJohn 10:11-15 ©
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep.
The hired man, since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep and runs away
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep;
this is because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
‘I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father.’
