All who eat your flesh and drink your blood
live in you and you in them;
for your flesh is the food we need,
your blood is our salvation;
all who eat your flesh and drink your blood have eternal life.
Look to Jesus in the wilderness,
breaking bread and feeding the multitude.
Gospel Reading - The Lost Sheep
11 And I, the Messiah,a came to save the lost.b
12 "If a man has a hundred sheep, and one wanders away and is lost, what will he do? Won't he leave the ninety-nine others and go out into the hills to search for the lost one? 13 And if he finds it, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine others safe at home! 14 Just so, it is not my Father's will that even one of these little ones should perish.. . . . .Matthew 18:12-14
- Literally, "the Son of Man."
- This verse is omitted in many manuscripts, some ancient.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
