  • First Reading: Philippians 3:3-8a

    3 For we are the circumcision, who in spirit serve God; and glory in Christ Jesus, not having confidence in the flesh.
    4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other thinketh he may have confidence in the flesh, I more,
    5 Being circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; according to the law, a Pharisee:
    6 According to zeal, persecuting the church of God; according to the justice that is in the law, conversing without blame.
    7 But the things that were gain to me, the same I have counted loss for Christ.
    8 Furthermore I count all things to be but loss for the excellent knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord.

  • Psalm: Psalms 105:2-3, 4-5, 6-7

    2 Sing to him, yea sing praises to him: relate all his wondrous works.
    3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
    4 Seek ye the Lord, and be strengthened: seek his face evermore.
    5 Remember his marvellous works which he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.
    6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant; ye sons of Jacob his chosen.
    7 He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

  • Gospel: Luke 15:1-10

    1 Now the publicans and sinners drew near unto him to hear him.
    2 And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying: This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.
    3 And he spoke to them this parable, saying:
    4 What man of you that hath an hundred sheep: and if he shall lose one of them, doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the desert, and go after that which was lost, until he find it?
    5 And when he hath found it, lay it upon his shoulders, rejoicing:
    6 And coming home, call together his friends and neighbours, saying to them: Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost?
    7 I say to you, that even so there shall be joy in heaven upon one sinner that doth penance, more than upon ninety-nine just who need not penance.
    8 Or what woman having ten groats; if she lose one groat, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently until she find it?
    9 And when she hath found it, call together her friends and neighbours, saying: Rejoice with me, because I have found the groat which I had lost.
    10 So I say to you, there shall be joy before the angels of God upon one sinner doing penance.
