Reading 1, Sirach 17:19-27

19 Their actions are all as plain as the sun to him, and his eyes rest constantly on their conduct.

20 Their iniquities are not hidden from him, all their sins are before the Lord.

21

22 Almsgiving is like a signet ring to him, he cherishes generosity like the pupil of an eye.

23 One day he will rise and reward them, he will repay their deserts on their own heads.

24 But to those who repent he permits return, and he encourages those who have lost hope.

25 Return to the Lord and renounce your sins, plead before his face, stop offending him.

26 Come back to the Most High, turn away from iniquity and hold all that is foul in abhorrence.

27 Who is going to praise the Most High in Sheol if we do not glorify him while we are alive?

Hear our prayers and spare us as we confess our sins,
— grant us forgiveness and peace.
Have mercy on your people, Lord.

Your Apostle said: “Where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more,”
— forgive us our transgressions.

Lord, we have sinned, yet we have also acknowledged your infinite mercy,
— bring us to conversion.

Save your people from their sins, Lord,
— make them pleasing to you.
