    Philippians 2:12-18
    12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;
    13 for God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
    14 Do all things without grumbling or questioning,
    15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
    16 holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
    17 Even if I am to be poured as a libation upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.
    18 Likewise you also should be glad and rejoice with me.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 27:1, 4, 13-14
    1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
    4 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.
    13 I believe that I shall see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!
    14 Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; yea, wait for the LORD!

  • Gospel

    Luke 14:25-33
    25 Now great multitudes accompanied him; and he turned and said to them,
    26 "If any one comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.
    27 Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
    28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
    29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him,
    30 saying, `This man began to build, and was not able to finish.'
    31 Or what king, going to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and take counsel whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?
    32 And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an embassy and asks terms of peace.
    33 So therefore, whoever of you does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.

    Romans 12:3-13
    3 For by the grace given to me I bid every one among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith which God has assigned him.
    4 For as in one body we have many members, and all the members do not have the same function,
    5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
    6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith;
    7 if service, in our serving; he who teaches, in his teaching;
    8 he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who contributes, in liberality; he who gives aid, with zeal; he who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
    9 Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good;
    10 love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor.
    11 Never flag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord.
    12 Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
    13 Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 89:2-5, 21-22, 25, 27
    1 I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever; with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations.
    2 For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens.
    3 Thou hast said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant:
    4 `I will establish your descendants for ever, and build your throne for all generations.'" [Selah]
    20 I have found David, my servant; with my holy oil I have anointed him;
    21 so that my hand shall ever abide with him, my arm also shall strengthen him.
    24 My faithfulness and my steadfast love shall be with him, and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
    26 He shall cry to me, `Thou art my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.'

  • Gospel

    John 10:11-16
    11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
    12 He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
    13 He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep.
    14 I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me,
    15 as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.
    16 And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.
