Readings at Mass

Liturgical Colour: Violet.


First readingDaniel 9:4-10 ©
Yours is the integrity, Lord; ours the shame
O Lord, God great and to be feared, you keep the covenant and have kindness for those who love you and keep your commandments: we have sinned, we have done wrong, we have acted wickedly, we have betrayed your commandments and your ordinances and turned away from them. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, our ancestors, and to all the people of the land. Integrity, Lord, is yours; ours the look of shame we wear today, we, the people of Judah, the citizens of Jerusalem, the whole of Israel, near and far away, in every country to which you have dispersed us because of the treason we have committed against you. To us, Lord, the look of shame belongs, to our kings, our princes, our ancestors, because we have sinned against you. To the Lord our God mercy and pardon belong, because we have betrayed him, and have not listened to the voice of the Lord our God nor followed the laws he has given us through his servants the prophets.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 78(79):8-9,11,13 ©
Lord, do not deal with us as our sins deserve.
Do not hold the guilt of our fathers against us.
  Let your compassion hasten to meet us;
  we are left in the depths of distress.
Lord, do not deal with us as our sins deserve.
O God our saviour, come to our help.
  Come for the sake of the glory of your name.
O Lord our God, forgive us our sins;
  rescue us for the sake of your name.
Lord, do not deal with us as our sins deserve.
Let the groans of the prisoners come before you;
  let your strong arm reprieve those condemned to die.
But we, your people, the flock of your pasture,
  will give you thanks for ever and ever.
  We will tell your praise from age to age.
Lord, do not deal with us as our sins deserve.

Gospel Acclamation
cf. John 6:63c,68c
Praise and honour to you, Lord Jesus Christ!
Your words, Lord, are spirit and life;
you have the words of everlasting life.
Praise and honour to you, Lord Jesus Christ!

GospelLuke 6:36-38
Γίνεσθε οἰκτίρμονες καθῶς ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν οἰκτίρμων ἐστίν. Καὶ μὴ κρίνετε, καὶ οὐ μὴ κριθῆτε· καὶ μὴ καταδικάζετε, καὶ οὐ μὴ καταδικασθῆτε. ἀπολύετε καὶ ἀπολυθήσεσθε· δίδοτε, καὶ δοθήσεται ὑμῖν· μέτρον καλὸν πεπιεσμένον σεσαλευμένον ὑπερεκχυννόμενον δώσουσιν εἰς τὸν κόλπον ὑμῶν· ᾧ γὰρ μέτρῳ μετρεῖτε ἀντιμετρηθήσεται ὑμῖν.
GospelLuke 6:36-38 ©
Grant pardon, and you will be pardoned
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Be compassionate as your Father is compassionate. Do not judge, and you will not be judged yourselves; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned yourselves; grant pardon, and you will be pardoned. Give, and there will be gifts for you: a full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap; because the amount you measure out is the amount you will be given back.’
