Readings on p. 1324 and Antiphons on p. 1770 of the Daily Missal.


First Reading: Job 42:1-3.5-6.12-17

A reading from the Book of Job.

Then Job answered the Lord:
“I know that you can do all things
and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’
Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,
things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,
but now my eye sees you;
therefore I despise myself,
and repent in dust and ashes.”

And the Lord blessed the latter days of Job
more than his beginning;
and he had fourteen thousand sheep,
six thousand camels,
a thousand yoke of oxen,
and a thousand she-asses.
He had also seven sons and three daughters.
And he called the name of the first Jemimah,
and the name of the second Keziah;
and the name of the third Keren-happuch.

And in all the land
there were no women so fair as Job’s daughters,
and their father gave them inheritance among their brothers.
And after this Job lived a hundred and forty years,
and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons,
four generations.
And Job died, an old man, and full of days.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 119: (R. 135a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. O Lord, let your face shine forth on your servant.

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

It was good for me to be humbled,
that I might learn your statutes.

O Lord, I know that your decrees are right;
though I am humbled, you are just.

Your judgments endure to this day,
for all things are your servants.

I am your servant; give me understanding:
then I shall know your decrees.

The unfolding of your word gives light,
and understanding to the simple.

R/. O Lord, let your face shine forth on your servant.




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 10:17-24

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
The seventy returned with joy, saying,
“Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!”
And he said to them,
“I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
Behold, I have given you authority
to tread upon serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy;
and nothing shall hurt you.
Nevertheless do not rejoice in this,
that the spirits are subject to you;
but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

In that same hour, he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
“I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
that you have hidden these things
from the wise and understanding
and revealed them to infants;
yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.
All things have been delivered to me by my Father,
and no one knows who the Son is except the Father,
or who the Father is except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

Then turning to the disciples he said privately,
“Blessed are the eyes which see what you see!
For I tell you that many prophets and kings
desired to see what you see, and did not see it,
and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
