    First Option

  • First Reading

    Philippians 2:5-11
    5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,
    6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
    7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
    8 And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.
    9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name,
    10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 22:26-32
    25 From thee comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will pay before those who fear him.
    26 The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the LORD! May your hearts live for ever!
    27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.
    28 For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations.
    29 Yea, to him shall all the proud of the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and he who cannot keep himself alive.
    30 Posterity shall serve him; men shall tell of the Lord to the coming generation,
    31 and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, that he has wrought it.

  • Gospel

    Luke 14:15-24
    15 When one of those who sat at table with him heard this, he said to him, "Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!"
    16 But he said to him, "A man once gave a great banquet, and invited many;
    17 and at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, `Come; for all is now ready.'
    18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, `I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it; I pray you, have me excused.'
    19 And another said, `I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them; I pray you, have me excused.'
    20 And another said, `I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.'
    21 So the servant came and reported this to his master. Then the householder in anger said to his servant, `Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and maimed and blind and lame.'
    22 And the servant said, `Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.'
    23 And the master said to the servant, `Go out to the highways and hedges, and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled.
    24 For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.'"

  • First Reading

    Philippians 4:4-9
    4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
    5 Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand.
    6 Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
    7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
    8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
    9 What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 131:1-3
    1 O LORD, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.
    2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast; like a child that is quieted is my soul.
    3 O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 22:34-40
    34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sad'ducees, they came together.
    35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, to test him.
    36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"
    37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
    38 This is the great and first commandment.
    39 And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    40 On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets."
