Entrance Antiphon

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you: blest are you among woken, and blest is the fruit of your womb.

First Reading: 3 John 5-8

A reading from the Third Letter of Saint John

Beloved Gaius, it is a loyal thing you do
when you render any service to the brethren,
especially to strangers,
who have testified to your love before the church.
You will do well to send them on their journey
as befits God’s service.
For they have set out for his sake
and have accepted nothing from the heathen.
So we ought to support such people,
that we may be fellow workers in the truth.

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Ps. 112:1b-2.5-6.8a and 9 (R. 1a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm beginning and ending with the response:

R/. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.

Blessed the man who fears the Lord,
who takes great delight in his commandments.
His descendants shall be powerful on earth;
the generation of the upright will be blest.

Riches and wealth are in his house;
his justice stands firm forever.
A light rises in the darkness for the upright;
he is generous, merciful and just.

It goes well for the man who deals generously and lends,
who conducts his affairs with justice.
He will never be moved;
forever shall the just be remembered.

R/. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.

Gospel acclamation:

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

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 afterward 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
Of you are told glorious things, O Virgin Mary, for he who is mighty has done great things for you.
