Reading 1: Romans 14:7-12
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 27:1-4, 13-14
Gospel: Luke 15:1-10

Reading 1: Romans 14:7-12
7 For none of us lives for himself and none of us dies for himself;

8 while we are alive, we are living for the Lord, and when we die, we die for the Lord: and so, alive or dead, we belong to the Lord.

9 It was for this purpose that Christ both died and came to life again: so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.

10 Why, then, does one of you make himself judge over his brother, and why does another among you despise his brother? All of us will have to stand in front of the judgement-seat of God:

11 as scripture says: By my own life says the Lord, every knee shall bow before me, every tongue shall give glory to God.

12 It is to God, then, that each of us will have to give an account of himself.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 27:1-4, 13-14
1 [Of David] Yahweh is my light and my salvation, whom should I fear? Yahweh is the fortress of my life, whom should I dread?

2 When the wicked advance against me to eat me up, they, my opponents, my enemies, are the ones who stumble and fall.

3 Though an army pitch camp against me, my heart will not fear, though war break out against me, my trust will never be shaken.

4 One thing I ask of Yahweh, one thing I seek: to dwell in Yahweh’s house all the days of my life, to enjoy the sweetness of Yahweh, to seek out his temple.

13 This I believe: I shall see the goodness of Yahweh, in the land of the living.

14 Put your hope in Yahweh, be strong, let your heart be bold, put your hope in Yahweh.

Gospel: Luke 15:1-10
1 The tax collectors and sinners, however, were all crowding round to listen to him,

2 and the Pharisees and scribes complained saying, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’

3 So he told them this parable:

4 ‘Which one of you with a hundred sheep, if he lost one, would fail to leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the missing one till he found it?

5 And when he found it, would he not joyfully take it on his shoulders

6 and then, when he got home, call together his friends and neighbours, saying to them, “Rejoice with me, I have found my sheep that was lost.”

7 In the same way, I tell you, there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner repenting than over ninety-nine upright people who have no need of repentance.

8 ‘Or again, what woman with ten drachmas would not, if she lost one, light a lamp and sweep out the house and search thoroughly till she found it?

9 And then, when she had found it, call together her friends and neighbours, saying to them, “Rejoice with me, I have found the drachma I lost.”

10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing among the angels of God over one repentant sinner.’

Catholic Daily Morning Prayer

God our Father, I come before you this morning, I thank you for the gift of my life, the life of my family members and that of my friends.

Thank you, Lord, for directing, protecting, guiding, guarding, governing and taking care of me throughout the night. I have woken up because of your abundant Mercies and Grace.

Merciful God, this morning, I submit myself into your mighty hands, may you fill me with your wisdom and grant me good health as I undertake my every deed today.

Lord, Bless the work of my hands so that all that I do today may be fulfilling to me, helpful to humanity and may I do it according to your Holy Will and for the greater glory of your name.

Angel of the Lord, appointed by the Divine Mercy to be my guardian, enlighten, protect, direct and govern me this day. Amen.

Prayer After Waking up

“Dear Lord, I do not know who or what will cross my path on this day. But I know that You are my rock and my fortress. As always You are my Shield and my Strong Tower. This is my Morning Prayer, please help me to attach myself to You today. Also, teach me how to stand strong in You and choose only Your way on this day. Help me walk in Your truth and not my feelings.

Lord help me embrace anything that comes my way as a chance to see You at work and as an opportunity to point others Your way. Father thank You for loving me and nothing can ever take that away from me!

Even if I fail on this day and fall short, You whisper Your unconditional love deep into my soul and remind me that Your mercies are new every morning. That truly amazes me, Lord.

Lord, I give you this day and all that it holds. May I walk in your goodness, knowing that your gentle hand will guide me, and keep me.

Thank You for meeting with me today, and I pray that You reawake me tomorrow with Your exact sweet loving whisper. I can’t wait to meet with You again. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.”
