Readings at Mass

Liturgical Colour: White.


First reading
1 Corinthians 4:1-5 ©
People must think of us as Christ’s servants, stewards entrusted with the mysteries of God. What is expected of stewards is that each one should be found worthy of his trust. Not that it makes the slightest difference to me whether you, or indeed any human tribunal, find me worthy or not. I will not even pass judgement on myself. True, my conscience does not reproach me at all, but that does not prove that I am acquitted: the Lord alone is my judge. There must be no passing of premature judgement. Leave that until the Lord comes; he will light up all that is hidden in the dark and reveal the secret intentions of men’s hearts. Then will be the time for each one to have whatever praise he deserves, from God.

Responsorial PsalmPsalm 109:1-4 ©
You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
The Lord’s revelation to my Master:
  ‘Sit on my right:
  your foes I will put beneath your feet.’
You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
The Lord will wield from Zion
  your sceptre of power:
  rule in the midst of all your foes.
You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
A prince from the day of your birth
  on the holy mountains;
  from the womb before the dawn I begot you.
You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
The Lord has sworn an oath he will not change.
  ‘You are a priest for ever,
  a priest like Melchizedek of old.’
You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.

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

GospelJohn 21:15-17 ©
After the meal Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these others do?’ He answered, ‘Yes Lord, you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my lambs.’ A second time he said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ He replied, ‘Yes, Lord, you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Look after my sheep.’ Then he said to him a third time, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was upset that he asked him the third time, ‘Do you love me?’ and said, ‘Lord, you know everything; you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep.’
