  • First Reading

    2 Samuel 12:7-10, 13
    7 Nathan said to David, "You are the man. Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, `I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you out of the hand of Saul;
    8 and I gave you your master's house, and your master's wives into your bosom, and gave you the house of Israel and of Judah; and if this were too little, I would add to you as much more.
    9 Why have you despised the word of the LORD, to do what is evil in his sight? You have smitten Uri'ah the Hittite with the sword, and have taken his wife to be your wife, and have slain him with the sword of the Ammonites.
    10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised me, and have taken the wife of Uri'ah the Hittite to be your wife.'
    13 David said to Nathan, "I have sinned against the LORD." And Nathan said to David, "The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 32:1-2, 5, 7, 11
    1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
    2 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
    5 I acknowledged my sin to thee, and I did not hide my iniquity; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"; then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. [Selah]
    7 Thou art a hiding place for me, thou preservest me from trouble; thou dost encompass me with deliverance. [Selah]
    11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

  • Second Reading

    Galatians 2:16, 19-21
    16 yet who know that a man is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ, and not by works of the law, because by works of the law shall no one be justified.
    19 For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God.
    20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
    21 I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification were through the law, then Christ died to no purpose.

  • Gospel

    Luke 7:36--8:3
    36 One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee's house, and took his place at table.
    37 And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was at table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment,
    38 and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
    39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw it, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner."
    40 And Jesus answering said to him, "Simon, I have something to say to you." And he answered, "What is it, Teacher?"
    41 "A certain creditor had two debtors; one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.
    42 When they could not pay, he forgave them both. Now which of them will love him more?"
    43 Simon answered, "The one, I suppose, to whom he forgave more." And he said to him, "You have judged rightly."
    44 Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your house, you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.
    45 You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet.
    46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment.
    47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little."
    48 And he said to her, "Your sins are forgiven."
    49 Then those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, "Who is this, who even forgives sins?"
    50 And he said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
    1 Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages, preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him,
    2 and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Mag'dalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,
    3 and Joan'na, the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their means.
