First Reading: Revelation 11:4-12

A reading from the Book of Revelation.

I, John, was told:
“[Behold my two witnesses;]”
these are the two olive trees and the two lampstands
which stand before the Lord of the earth.
And if anyone would harm them,
fire pours from their mouth and consumes their foes;
if anyone would harm them,
thus he is doomed to be killed.
They have power to shut the sky,
that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying,
and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood,
and to afflict the earth with every plague,
as often as they desire.
And when they have finished their testimony,
the beast that ascends from the bottomless pit
will make war upon them and conquer them and kill them,
and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city
which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt,
where their Lord was crucified.

For three days and a half
men from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations
gaze at their dead bodies
and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb,
and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them
and make merry and exchange presents,
because these two prophets had been a torment
to those who dwell on the earth.
But after the three and a half days
a breath of life from God entered them,
and they stood up on their feet,
and great fear fell on those who saw them.
Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them,
“Come up here!”
And in the sight of their foes,
they went up to heaven in a cloud.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 144:1.2.9-10 (R. 1a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. Blest be the Lord, my rock.

Blest be the Lord, my rock,
who trains my hands for battle,
who prepares my fingers for war.

He is my merciful love, my fortress;
he is my stronghold, my saviour,
my shield in whom I take refuge.
He brings peoples under my rule.

To you, O God, will I sing a new song;
I will play on the ten-stringed harp
to you who give kings their victory,
who set David your servant free
from the evil sword.

R/. Blest be the Lord, my rock.



Alleluia, Alleluia.
Our Saviour Christ Jesus abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel.


Gospel: Luke 20:27-40

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
There came to Jesus some Sadducees,
those who say that there is no resurrection,
and they asked him a question, saying,
“Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies,
having a wife but no children,
the man must take the wife and raise up children for his brother.
Now there were seven brothers;
the first took a wife and died without children,
and the second and the third took her,
and likewise, all seven left no children and died.
Afterward the woman also died.
In the resurrection, therefore,
whose wife will the woman be?
For the seven had her as wife.”

And Jesus said to them,
“The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage;
but those who are accounted worthy to attain to that age
and to the resurrection from the dead
neither marry nor are given in marriage,
for they cannot die any more,
because they are equal to angels and are sons of God,
being sons of the resurrection.
But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed,
in the passage about the bush,
where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham
and the God of Isaac
and the God of Jacob.
Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living;
for all live to him.”

And some of the scribes answered,
“Teacher, you have spoken well.”
For they no longer dared to ask him any question.

The Gospel of the Lord.
