Romans 4:13.16-18; Luke 12:8-12

Saturday Mass of Our Lady (Ordinary Time, Year 1)
Readings on p.1368 and Antiphons on p 1865 of the Daily Missal (Common BVM#6)

Entrance Antiphon.
The rod of Jesse has blossomed; the Virgin has brought forth one who is both God and man. God has restored peace, reconciling in himself the depths and the heights.

First Reading: Romans 4:13.16-18

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

Brothers and sisters:
The promise to Abraham and his descendants,
that they should inherit the world,
did not come through the law
but through the righteousness of faith.

That is why it depends on faith,
in order that the promise may rest on grace
and be guaranteed to all his descendants—
not only to the adherents of the law
but also to those who share the faith of Abraham,
for he is the ancestor of us all,
as it is written,
“I have made you the father of many nations”—
in the presence of the God in whom he believed,
who gives life to the dead
and calls into existence the things that do not exist.
In hope he believed against hope,
that he should become the father of many nations;
as he had been told,
“So shall your descendants be.”

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 105:6-7.8-9.42-43 (R. 8a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord remembers his covenant forever.

O children of Abraham, his servant,
O descendants of the Jacob he chose,
he, the Lord, is our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.

He remembers his covenant forever:
the promise he ordained for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,
the oath he swore to Isaac.

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/. The Lord remembers his covenant forever.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
The Spirit of truth will bear witness to me, says the Lord;
and you also are witnesses.



Gospel: Luke 12:8-12

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Everyone who acknowledges me before others,
the Son of man also will acknowledge before the angels of God;
but the one who denies me before others,
will be denied before the angels of God.
And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of man
will be forgiven,
but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
will not be forgiven.
And when they bring you before the synagogues
and the rulers and the authorities,
do not be anxious about how or what you are to answer
or what you are to say;
for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour
what you ought to say.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
Graciousness is poured out upon your lips, for God has blessed you forevermore.
