Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

30th Ordinary Sunday, 23 October: Sir 35:12-14 & 16-18; Ps 34:2-3 & 17-19 & 21-22; 2 Tm 4:6-8 & 16-18; Lk 18:9-14 ~ be merciful to me

O God, who alone can probe the depths of the heart, you hear the prayer of the humble and justify the repentant sinner. As we stand before you, grant us the gift of humility, that we may see our own sins clearly and refrain from judging our neighbor. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.
