    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ez 34:11-16

    Thus says the Lord GOD:
    I myself will look after and tend my sheep.
    As a shepherd tends his flock
    when he finds himself among his scattered sheep,
    so will I tend my sheep.
    I will rescue them from every place where they were scattered
    when it was cloudy and dark.
    I will lead them out from among the peoples
    and gather them from the foreign lands;
    I will bring them back to their own country
    and pasture them upon the mountains of Israel
    in the land's ravines and all its inhabited places.
    In good pastures will I pasture them,
    and on the mountain heights of Israel
    shall be their grazing ground.
    There they shall lie down on good grazing ground,
    and in rich pastures shall they be pastured
    on the mountains of Israel.
    I myself will pasture my sheep;
    I myself will give them rest, says the Lord GOD.
    The lost I will seek out,
    the strayed I will bring back,
    the injured I will bind up,
    the sick I will heal,
    but the sleek and the strong I will destroy,
    shepherding them rightly.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6.

    R. (1)
    The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
    beside restful waters he leads me;
    he refreshes my soul.
    R.The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
    He guides me in right paths
    for his name's sake.
    Even though I walk in the dark valley
    I fear no evil; for you are at my side
    with your rod and your staff
    that give me courage.
    R.The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
    You spread the table before me
    in the sight of my foes;
    you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
    R.The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
    Only goodness and kindness follow me
    all the days of my life;
    and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
    for years to come.
    R.The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rom 5:5b-11

    Brothers and sisters:
    The love of God has been poured out into our hearts
    through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
    For Christ, while we were still helpless,
    died at the appointed time for the ungodly.
    Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person,
    though perhaps for a good person
    one might even find courage to die.
    But God proves his love for us
    in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
    How much more then, since we are now justified by his blood,
    will we be saved through him from the wrath.
    Indeed, if, while we were enemies,
    we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son,
    how much more, once reconciled,
    will we be saved by his life.
    Not only that,
    but we also boast of God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
    through whom we have now received reconciliation.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 15:3-7

    Jesus addressed this parable to the Pharisees and scribes:
    "What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them
    would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert
    and go after the lost one until he finds it?
    And when he does find it,
    he sets it on his shoulders with great joy
    and, upon his arrival home,
    he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them,
    'Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.'
    I tell you, in just the same way
    there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents
    than over ninety-nine righteous people
    who have no need of repentance."
