St. Martin de Porres, religious

Thursday of the 31st Week 

Phil 3:3-8a • Ps 105

Lk 15:1-10



1The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus, 2but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” 3So to them he addressed this parable. 4“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? 5And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy 6and, 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.’ 7I 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.

8“Or what woman having ten coins and losing one would not light a lamp and sweep the house, searching carefully until she finds it? 9And when she does find it, she calls together her friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found the coin that I lost.’ 10In just the same way, I tell you, there will be rejoicing among the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

The Commemoration of the All the Faithful Departed (All Souls' day)

Wis 3:1-9 • Ps 19 • Rom 6:3-9

Mt 25:31-46



Jesus said to his disciples: 31“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, 32and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, 36naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ 37Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ 40And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’... 46And these will go off... to eternal life.”

Solemnity of All Saints

Rv 7:2-4, 9-14 • Ps 24 • 1 Jn 3:1-3

Mt 5:1-12a



1When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. 2He began to teach them, saying:

3“Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.

4Blessed are they who mourn,

for they will be comforted.

5Blessed are the meek,

for they will inherit the land.

6Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they will be satisfied.

7Blessed are the merciful,

for they will be shown mercy.

8Blessed are the clean of heart,

for they will see God.

9Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they will be called children of God.

10Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,

for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.

11Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.”
