Dieric Bouts the Elder, Christ in the House of Simon, Staatliche Museen, Berlin, 1440s

Readings for Mass
First Reading: First Timothy 4:12-16
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 111:7-8, 9, 10
Gospel: Luke 7:36-50

And Jesus said to the woman, ‘Your faith has saved you; go in peace (NRSV, Luke 7:50).’

Let us pray,

Father, everything that we do of value is in response to your gift of divine life that you share with us through the Word in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is our saying “yes” to you in faith that gives us strength to do all that is necessary. It is our response to you in faith that brings us forgiveness and reconciliation and enables us to go out to others in love and service. It is faith then which saves.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
