Monday of the Thirty-first Week in Ordinary Time (II)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Philippians 2.1-4

Brothers and sisters:
If there is any support in Christ,
if there is any consolation in love,
if there is any communion in the Spirit,
any pity and compassion,
fulfill my joy that you are of the same mind,
having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind,
neither in ambition nor in being conceited, but in humility,
each one holding others above themself,
each one not merely looking to his own things, but also to the things of others.

Responsorial - Psalm 131.1, 2, 3 Response: Ps 31.1a, see John 14.27

R. In you, O Lord, I have your peace.

Lord, my heart is not proud,
nor are my eyes lofty.
Neither have I walked among the great,
nor among wonderful things above me.

R. In you, O Lord, I have your peace.

Have I not calmed and quieted my soul
Like a child upon his mother?
Like a weaned child
thus is my soul.

R. In you, O Lord, I have your peace.

O Israel, hope in the Lord,
from this moment until forever.

R. In you, O Lord, I have your peace.

Gospel - Luke 14.12-14

When Jesus went into the house of one of the chief of the Pharisees,
on the Sabbath, to eat bread,
he said to the one who had invited him:
When you have a meal or a banquet,
Do not call your friends or your brothers
or your relatives, or your rich neighbors,
lest perhaps they also invite you in return, and you are repaid.

But when you put on a feast,
invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, and the blind,
and you shall be blessed, because they do not have the ability to repay you:
for you will be repaid in the resurrection of the just.
