First Reading: Leviticus 19. 1 – 2, 15 – 18
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to
all the congregation of the people of Israel
and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the
Lord your God am holy.
You shall not render an unjust judgement;
you shall not be partial to the poor or defer
to the great: with justice you shall judge
your neighbour. You shall not go around as
a slanderer among your people, and you
shall not profit by the blood of your
neighbour: I am the Lord.
You shall not hate in your heart anyone of
your kin; you shall reprove your neighbour,
or you will incur guilt yourself. You shall
not take vengeance or bear a grudge
against any of your people, but you shall
love your neighbour as yourself: I am the
Gradual Psalm 145 (NEH 540)
R: I will bless your name for ever,
my God and King,
Great is the Lord, and worthy of all praise,
His glory is past searching out;
Men shall recount the might of your deeds,
And proclaim your majesty. R
The Lord loves all that he has made,
His mercy is over all his works:
All your works speak your praise,
And your people give you thanks. R
Your right hand raises those that fall,
And those bowed down are lifted up:
All creatures wait on you for food,
And from your hand their wants are filled. R
The Lord is near to those who call,
He hears their cry and brings them help:
My mouth shall tell the praise of God,
And let all flesh his name adore. R
We extend a warm welcome to all, especially if you’re visiting us for the first time.
Please make yourself known to Fr Robert or the Church Wardens/Sides-people, or
complete a contact card at the back of the church.
Second Reading: 1 Thessalonians 2. 1 – 8
You yourselves know, brothers and sisters,
that our coming to you was not in vain, but
though we had already suffered and been
shamefully maltreated at Philippi, as you
know, we had courage in our God to
declare to you the gospel of God in spite of
great opposition. For our appeal does not
spring from deceit or impure motives or
trickery, but just as we have been
approved by God to be entrusted with the
message of the gospel, even so we speak,
not to please mortals, but to please God
who tests our hearts. As you know and as
God is our witness, we never came with
words of flattery or with a pretext for
greed; nor did we seek praise from
mortals, whether from you or from others,
though we might have made demands as
apostles of Christ. But we were gentle
among you, like a nurse tenderly caring for
her own children. So deeply do we care for
you that we are determined to share with
you not only the gospel of God but also our
own selves, because you have become very
dear to us.
Gospel acclamation: ‘Open our heart, O
Lord, to accept the words of your Son’
Gospel: Matthew 22. 34 - end
When the Pharisees heard that he had
silenced the Sadducees, they gathered
together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked
him a question to test him. ‘Teacher, which
commandment in the law is the greatest?’
He said to him, ‘ “You shall love the Lord
your God with all your heart, and with all
your soul, and with all your mind.” This is
the greatest and first commandment. And
a second is like it: “You shall love your
neighbour as yourself.” On these two
commandments hang all the law and the
Now while the Pharisees were gathered
together, Jesus asked them this question:
‘What do you think of the Messiah? Whose
son is he?’ They said to him, ‘The son of
David.’ He said to them, ‘How is it then that
David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying,
“The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at my right
hand, until I put your enemies under your
feet’ ”? If David thus calls him Lord, how
can he be his son?’ No one was able to give
him an answer, nor from that day did
anyone dare to ask him any more questions.
