恭讀聖瑪竇福音 18: 12-14
(2nd Week of Advent – Tuesday)
A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 18:12-14
12 What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go in search of the one that went astray? 13 And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. 14 So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.
—The Gospel of the Lord.
