Romans 11:29-36; Luke 14:12-14

Thirty-First Week in Ordinary Time – Year 1
Readings on p. 1420 and Antiphons on p. 1414 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

Forsake me not, O Lord, my God; be not far from me! Make haste and come to my help, O Lord, my strong salvation!


First Reading: Romans 11:29-36

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

Brothers and sisters:
The gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.
Just as you were once disobedient to God
but now have received mercy because of their disobedience,
so they have now been disobedient
in order that by the mercy shown to you
they also may receive mercy.
For God has consigned all people to disobedience,
that he may have mercy upon all.

O the depth of the riches and wisdom
and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable are his judgments
and how inscrutable his ways!
“For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counsellor?”
“Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”

For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be glory forever. Amen.

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 69; 30-31,33-34, 36-37 (R. 14c)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. In your great mercy, answer me, O Lord.

As for me in my poverty and pain,
let your salvation, O God, raise me up.
Then I will praise God’s name with a song;
I will glorify him with thanksgiving.

The poor when they see it will be glad,
and God-seeking hearts will revive;
for the Lord listens to the needy,
and does not spurn his own in their chains.

For God will bring salvation to Sion,
and rebuild the cities of Judah,
and they shall dwell there in possession.
The children of his servants will inherit it;
those who love his name shall dwell there.

R/. In your great mercy, answer me, O Lord.


Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples,
and you will know the truth, says the Lord.



Gospel: Luke 14:12-14

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to the ruler who belonged to the Pharisees,
who had invited him,
“When you give a dinner or a banquet,
do not invite your friends or your brothers
or your kinsmen or rich neighbours,
lest they also invite you in return,
and you be repaid.
But when you give a feast,
invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind,
and you will be blessed,
because they cannot repay you.
You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
You will show me the path of life, the fullness of joy in your presence, O Lord.
