The merciful love of the Lord fills the earth; by the word of the Lord the heavens were made, alleluia.
FIRST READING: Acts 4:8-12.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Psalm 118.
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
1. Give praise to the Lord, for he is good; his mercy endures forever. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man; it is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. ℟
2. I will thank you, for you have answered, and you are my saviour. the stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. By the Lord has this been done, a marvel in our eyes. ℟
3. Blest is he who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord. You are my God, I praise you. My God, I exalt you. Give praise to the Lord, for he is good; his mercy endures forever. ℟
SECOND READING: 1 John 3:1-2.
Alleluia, alleluia. I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; I know my own, and my own know me. Alleluia.
GOSPEL: John 10:11-18.
SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER:
I believe that you are present
in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
The Good Shepherd has risen, who laid down his life for his sheep and willingly died for his flock, alleluia
