First Reading – Romans 14 v1-12

1Welcome those who are weak in faith, but not for the purpose of quarrelling over opinions.   2Some believe in eating anything, while the weak eat only vegetables.   3Those who eat must not despise those who abstain, and those who abstain must not pass judgment on those who eat; for God has welcomed them.   4Who are you to pass judgment on servants of another?   It is before their own lord that they stand or fall.   And they will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make them stand.   5Some judge one day to be better than another, while others judge all days to be alike.   Let all be fully convinced in their own minds.   6Those who observe the day, observe it in honour of the Lord.   Also those who eat, eat in honour of the Lord, since they give thanks to God; while those who abstain, abstain in honor of the Lord and give thanks to God.   7We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves.   8If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.   9For to this end Christ died and lived again, so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.   10Why do you pass judgment on your brother or sister?   Or you, why do you despise your brother or sister?   For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.   11For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God.”   12So then, each of us will be accountable to God.

Gospel Reading – Matthew 18 v21-35

21Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive?   As many as seven times?”   22Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.   23“For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves.   24When he began the reckoning, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him; 25and, as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, and payment to be made.   26So the slave fell on his knees before him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.’   27And out of pity for him, the lord of that slave released him and forgave him the debt.   28But that same slave, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat, he said, ‘Pay what you owe.’   29Then his fellow slave fell down and pleaded with him, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’

30But he refused; then he went and threw him into prison until he would pay the debt.   31When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place.   32Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked slave!   I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me.   33Should you not have had mercy on your fellow slave, as I had mercy on you?’   34And in anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he would pay his entire debt.   35So my heavenly Father will also do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

 

 

 

Alleluia Sing to Jesus

 

Alleluia, sing to Jesus,

his the sceptre, his the throne;

alleluia, his the triumph,

his the victory alone:

hark, the songs of peaceful Sion

thunder like a mighty flood:

Jesus out of ev’ry nation,

hath redeemed us by his blood.

 

Alleluia, not as orphans

are we left in sorrow now;

alleluia, he is near us,

faith believes, nor questions how;

though the cloud from sight received him

when the forty days were o’er,

shall our hearts forget his promise,

‘I am with you evermore’?

 

Alleluia, bread of angels,

here on earth our food, our stay;

alleluia, here the sinful

come to you from day to day.

Intercessor, friend of sinners,

earth’s redeemer plead for me,

where the songs of all the sinless

sweep across the crystal sea.

 

Alleluia, King eternal,

he the Lord of lords we own;

alleluia, born of Mary,

earth his footstool, heav’n his throne;

he within the veil has entered

robed in flesh, our great High Priest;

he on earth both priest and victim

in the Eucharistic Feast.

 

 

 

Dear Lord and Father of Mankind

 

Dear Lord and Father of mankind,

forgive our foolish ways!

Re-clothe us in our rightful mind,

in purer lives thy service find,

in deeper rev’rence praise,

in deeper rev’rence praise.

 

In simple trust like theirs who heard,

beside the Syrian sea,

the gracious calling of the Lord,

let us, like them, without a word,

rise up and follow thee,

rise up and follow thee.

 

O Sabbath rest by Galilee!

O calm of hills above,

where Jesus knelt to share with thee

the silence of eternity,

interpreted by love!

Interpreted by love!

 

Drop thy still dews of quietness,

till all our strivings cease;

take from our souls the strain and stress,

and let our ordered lives confess

the beauty of thy peace,

the beauty of thy peace.

 

Breath through the heats of our desire

thy coolness and thy balm;

let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;

speak through the earthquake,

wind and fire,

O still small voice of calm!

O still small voice of calm!

 

Tell out my Soul

 

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord:

unnumbered blessings, give my spirit voice;

tender to me the promise of his word;

in God my Saviour shall my heart rejoice.

 

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his name:

make known his might, the deeds his

arm has done;

his mercy sure, from age to age the same;

his holy name, the Lord, the mighty one.

 

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might:

pow’rs and dominions lay their glory by;

proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight,

the hungry fed, the humble lifted high.

 

Tell out, my soul, the glories of his word:

firm is his promise, and his mercy sure.

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord

to children’s children and for evermore.
