Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 32:1-2, 5, 11
1 [Of David Poem] How blessed are those whose offence is forgiven, whose sin blotted out.
5 I made my sin known to you, did not conceal my guilt. I said, 'I shall confess my offence to Yahweh.' And you, for your part, took away my guilt, forgave my sin.
11 Rejoice in Yahweh, exult all you upright, shout for joy, you honest of heart.
Gospel, Luke 12:1-7

4 'To you my friends I say: Do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.
5 I will tell you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has the power to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, he is the one to fear.
6 Can you not buy five sparrows for two pennies? And yet not one is forgotten in God's sight.
7 Why, every hair on your head has been counted. There is no need to be afraid: you are worth more than many sparrows.
