Old Testament Reading
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Better two than one alone, since thus their work is really rewarding. / If one should fall, the other helps him up; but what of the person with no one to help him up when he falls? / Again: if two sleep together they keep warm, but how can anyone keep warm alone? / Where one alone would be overcome, two will put up resistance; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 103:1-2, 8 and 13, 17-18a
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.
Bless the LORD, O my soul;
and all my being, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits.
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.
Merciful and gracious is the LORD,
slow to anger and abounding in kindness.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.
But the kindness of the LORD is from eternity
to eternity toward those who fear him,
And his justice towards children’s children
among those who keep his covenant.
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.

New Testament Reading
Philippians 4:4-9
Always be joyful, then, in the Lord; I repeat, be joyful. / Let your good sense be obvious to everybody. The Lord is near. / Never worry about anything; but tell God all your desires of every kind in prayer and petition shot through with gratitude, / and the peace of God which is beyond our understanding will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus. / Finally, brothers, let your minds be filled with everything that is true, everything that is honorable, everything that is upright and pure, everything that we love and admire — with whatever is good and praiseworthy. / Keep doing everything you learnt from me and were told by me and have heard or seen me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.
