Hail, Holy Mother, who gave birth to the King who rules heaven and earth forever.

First Reading: Wisdom 18:14-16; 19:6-9

A reading from the Book of Wisdom.

While gentle silence enveloped all things,
and night in its swift course was now half gone,
your all-powerful word leapt from heaven,
from the royal throne,
into the midst of the land that was doomed,
a stern warrior carrying the sharp sword
of your authentic command,
and stood and filled all things with death,
and touched heaven while standing on the earth.
For the whole creation in its nature was fashioned anew,
complying with your commands,
that your children might be kept unharmed.
The cloud was seen overshadowing the camp,
and dry land emerging where water had stood before,
an unhindered way out of the Red Sea,
and a grassy plain out of the raging waves,
where those protected by your hand
passed through as one nation,
after gazing on marvellous wonders.
For they ranged like horses,
and leapt like lambs,
praising you, O Lord, who delivered them.

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 105:2-3.36-37.42-43 (R. 5a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Remember the wonders the Lord has done.

O sing to him, sing his praise;
tell all his wonderful works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.

He struck all the firstborn in their land,
the first fruit of all their strength.
He led out Israel with silver and gold.
In his tribes were none who stumbled.

For he remembered his holy word,
spoken to Abraham his servant.
So he brought out his people with joy,
his chosen ones with shouts of rejoicing.

R/. Remember the wonders the Lord has done.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
God has called us through the Gospel,
to obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.



Gospel: Luke 18:1-8

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus told his disciples a parable,
to the effect that they ought always to pray
and not lose heart.
He said, “In a certain city there was a judge
who neither feared God nor regarded man;
and there was a widow in that city
who kept coming to him and saying,
‘Vindicate me against my adversary.’

For a while he refused;
but afterwards, he said to himself,
‘Though I neither fear God nor regard man,
yet because this widow bothers me,
I will vindicate her,
or she will wear me out by her continual coming.’”

And the Lord said,
“Hear what the unrighteous judge says.
And will not God vindicate his elect,
who cry to him day and night?
Will he delay long over them?
I tell you,
he will vindicate them speedily.
Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes,
will he find faith on earth?”

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
Blessed is the womb of the Virgin Mary, which bore the Son of the eternal Father.
