  • First Reading

    Philippians 3:3-8
    3 For we are the true circumcision, who worship God in spirit, and glory in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh.
    4 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:
    5 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,
    6 as to zeal a persecutor of the church, as to righteousness under the law blameless.
    7 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
    8 Indeed I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 105:2-7
    2 Sing to him, sing praises to him, tell of all his wonderful works!
    3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
    4 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his presence continually!
    5 Remember the wonderful works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
    6 O offspring of Abraham his servant, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
    7 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

  • Gospel

    Luke 15:1-10
    1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him.
    2 And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them."
    3 So he told them this parable:
    4 "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?
    5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
    6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.'
    7 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.
    8 "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?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, `Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin which I had lost.'
    10 Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
