Luke 12:54-59

Twenty-Ninth week in Ordinary Time – Year 1
Readings on p. 1388 and Antiphons on p. 1371 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.
To you I call; for you will surely heed me, O God; turn your ear to me; hear my words. Guard me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.

First Reading: Romans 7:18-25a

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

Brothers and sisters:
I know that nothing good dwells within me,
that is, in my flesh.
I can will what is right,
but I cannot do it.
For I do not do the good I want,
but the evil I do not want is what I do.
Now if I do what I do not want,
it is no longer I that do it,
but sin which dwells within me.

So I find it to be a law that
when I want to do right,
evil lies close at hand.
For I delight in the law of God, in my inmost self,
but I see in my members another law
at war with the law of my mind
and making me captive to the law of sin
which dwells in my members.
Wretched man that I am!
Who will deliver me from this body of death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 119: (R. 68b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Teach me your statutes, O Lord.

Teach me good judgment and knowledge,
for I trust in your commands.

You are good, and you do what is good;
teach me your statutes.

Let your merciful love console me
by your promise to your servant.

Show me compassion, that I may live,
for your law is my delight.

I will never forget your precepts,
for with them you give me life.

Save me, I am yours,
for I seek your precepts.

R/. Teach me your statutes, O Lord.


Please stand for the Gospel.

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



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.



Communion Antiphon.

Behold, the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, who hope in his merciful love, to rescue their souls from death, to keep them alive in famine.
