Blessed are you, O Virgin Mary, by the Lord God Most High, above all woman on the earth; for he has so exalted your name, that your praise shall be undying on our lips.

 

First Reading: 1 Timothy 6:13-16

A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to Timothy.

Beloved:
In the presence of God who gives life to all things,
and of Christ Jesus
who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession,
I charge you to keep the commandment unstained
and free from reproach
until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ;
and this will be made manifest at the proper time
by the blessed and only Sovereign,
the King of kings and Lord of lords,
who alone has immortality and dwells in unapproachable light,
whom no one has ever seen or can see.
To him be honour and eternal dominion. Amen.

The Word of the Lord

 

 

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 100:1-2.3.4.5 (R. 2b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Come before the Lord, singing for joy.

Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us; we belong to him.
We are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with songs of praise.
Give thanks to him, and bless his name.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age.

R/. Come before the Lord, singing for joy.

 

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
Blessed are those who, hearing the word,
hold it fast in an honest and good heart,
and bring forth fruit with patience.
Alleluia.

 

 

Gospel: Luke 8:4-15

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
When a great crowd came together
and people from town after town came to him,
he said in a parable:
“A sower went out to sow his seed;
and as he sowed, some fell along the path

and was trodden underfoot,
and the birds of the air devoured it.
And some fell on the rock;
and as it grew up, it withered away,
because it had no moisture.
And some fell among thorns,
and the thorns grew with it and choked it.
And some fell into good soil and grew,
and yielded a hundredfold.”
As he said this, he called out,
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

And when his disciples asked him what this parable meant,
he said, “To you, it has been given
to know the secrets of the kingdom of God;
but for others, they are in parables,
so that seeing they may not see,
and hearing they may not understand.
Now the parable is this:
The seed is the word of God.
The ones along the path are those who have heard;
then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts,
that they may not believe and be saved.
And the ones on the rock are those who,
when they hear the word, receive it with joy;
but these have no root,
they believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.
And as for what fell among the thorns,
they are those who hear,
but as they go on their way
they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life,
and their fruit does not mature.
And as for that in the good soil,
they are those who, hearing the word,
hold it fast in an honest and good heart,
and bring forth fruit with patience.

The Gospel of the Lord

Communion Antiphon
All generations will call me blessed, for God has regarded his lowly handmaid.
