THE GOSPEL

Luke 6:39-45

…  for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks

 Jesus,
we watch: you
heal the sick, and
 eat and drink with sinners,
and talk with the Samaritan woman;
we see you visit with Nicodemus,
and let the prostitute
anoint your
feet.

You took our heart of flesh
to show it how
to love.

Mercify our
hearts. Let us heed
your call to love tenderly
 with hearts and hands and voices.


THE FIRST READING

Sirach 27:4-7

… so too does one’s speech disclose the bent of one’s mind.

 Christ,
be in my heart
to love everyone I meet,

be on my mind
to find you in all things,

 on my tongue
to spread your love to all who hear me,

in my hands
to give your love to all in need,

in my feet
to take your love
everywhere
 I go.


THE SECOND READING

1 Corinthians 15:54-58

Where, O death, is your sting?

Jesus,
you call us all
to your infinite love.

Clothe our corruptibility with incorruptibility
and our mortality with immortality.
Let us spread your kingdom
with you as our victor
in life and in
 death.

Death,

now, where is your sting?
