1Cor 15:12-20; Luke 8

Memorial of Ss Cornelius & Cyprian, Pope & Bishop – Martyrs
Readings on p. 1275 and Antiphons on p. 1920 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

I will appoint over you shepherds after my own heart, who will shepherd you wisely and prudently.

First Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:12-20

A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

Brothers and sisters:

If Christ is preached as raised from the dead,
how can some of you say
that there is no resurrection of the dead?
But if there is no resurrection of the dead,
then Christ has not been raised;
if Christ has not been raised,
then our preaching is in vain
and your faith is in vain.
We are even found to be misrepresenting God,
because we testified of God that he raised Christ,
whom he did not raise
if it is true that the dead are not raised.
For if the dead are not raised,
then Christ has not been raised.
If Christ has not been raised,
your faith is futile
and you are still in your sins.
Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
If for this life only we have hoped in Christ,
we are of all men most to be pitied.

But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 17:1.6-7.8 and 15 (R. 15b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. When I awake, I shall be filled with the vision of your presence, O Lord.

O Lord, hear a cause that is just;
pay heed to my cry.
Turn your ear to my prayer:
no deceit is on my lips.

To you I call; for you will surely heed me, O God.
Turn your ear to me; hear my words.
Display your merciful love.
By your right hand, you deliver from their foes
those who put their trust in you.

Guard me as the apple of your eye.
Hide me in the shadow of your wings
As for me, in justice I shall behold your face;
when I awake I shall be filled with the vision of your presence.

R/. When I awake, I shall be filled with the vision of your presence, O Lord.

Gospel: Luke 8:1-3

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus went through cities and villages,
preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God.
And the twelve were with him,
and also some women
who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities:
Mary, called Magdalene,
from whom seven demons had gone out,
and Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward,
and Susanna, and many others,
who provided for them out of their means.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.

The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as ransom for many.
