Readings on p. 1389 and Antiphons on p. 1371 of the Daily Missal.

 

 

First Reading: Ephesians 4:1-6

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Ephesians.

Brothers and sisters:

I, a prisoner for the Lord,
beg you to walk in a manner
worthy of the calling to which you have been called,
with all lowliness and meekness,
with patience,
forbearing one another in love,
eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit
in the bond of peace.
There is one body and one Spirit,
just as you were called
to the one hope that belongs to your call,
one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
one God and Father of us all,
who is above all and through all and in all.

The Word of the Lord.

 

 

 

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 24:1-2.3-4ab.5-6(R. see 6)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. These are the people who seek your face, O Lord.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
the world, and those who dwell in it.
It is he who set it on the seas;
on the rivers, he made it firm.

Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
The clean of hands and pure of heart,
whose soul is not set on vain things.

Blessings from the Lord shall he receive,
and right reward from the God who saves him.
Such are the people who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

R/. These are the people who seek your face, O Lord.

 

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.
Alleluia.

 

Gospel: Luke 12:54-59

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to the multitudes,
“When you see a cloud rising in the west,
you say at once, ‘A shower is coming’;
and so it happens.
And when you see the south wind blowing, you say,
‘There will be scorching heat’,
and it happens.
You hypocrites!
You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky;
but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?

“And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?
As you go with your accuser before the magistrate,
make an effort to settle with him on the way,
lest he drag you to the judge,
and the judge hand you over to the officer,
and the officer put you in prison.
I tell you, you will never get out
till you have paid the very last copper.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
