Romans 11:1-2a.11-12.25-29; Luke 14:1.7-11

Saturday Mass of Our Lady (Ordinary Time, Year 1)
Readings on p.1411 and Antiphons on p 1867 of the Daily Missal (Commons BVM#8)

Entrance Antiphon.
Happy are you, holy Virgin Mary, and most worthy of all praise, for from you arose the sun of justice, Christ our God, through whom we have been saved and redeemed.

First Reading: Romans 11:1-2a.11-12.25-29

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

Brothers and sisters:
Has God rejected his people?
By no means!
I myself am an Israelite,
a descendant of Abraham,
a member of the tribe of Benjamin.
God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew.

So I ask, have they stumbled so as to fall?
By no means!
But through their trespass salvation has come to the Gentiles,
so as to make Israel jealous.
Now if their trespass means riches for the world,
and if their failure means riches for the Gentiles,
how much more will their full inclusion mean!

Lest you be wise in your own conceits,
I want you to understand this mystery, brothers and sisters:
a hardening has come upon part of Israel
until the full number of the Gentiles come in,
and so all Israel will be saved;
as it is written,
“The Deliverer will come from Zion,
he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”;
“and this will be my covenant with them
when I take away their sins.”

As regards the gospel they are enemies of God,
for your sake;
but as regards election, they are beloved
for the sake of their forefathers.
For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 94:12-13a.14-15.17-18 (R. 14a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord will not abandon his people.

Blessed the man whom you discipline, O Lord,
whom you train by means of your law;
to whom you give peace in evil days.

The Lord will not abandon his people,
nor forsake those who are his heritage;
for judgment shall again be just,
and all true hearts shall uphold it.

If the Lord were not to help me,
my soul would soon go down to the silence.
When I think, “I have lost my foothold,”
your mercy, O Lord, holds me up.

R/. The Lord will not abandon his people.


Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
Take my yoke upon you, says the Lord;
and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart.



Gospel: Luke 14:1.7-11

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

One sabbath when Jesus went to dine
at the house of a ruler who belonged to the Pharisees,
they were watching him.

Now he told a parable to those who were invited
when he marked how they chose the places of honour,
saying to them,
“When you are invited by anyone to a marriage feast,
do not sit down in a place of honour,
lest a more eminent person than you be invited by him;
and he who invited you both will come, and say to you,
‘Give place to this person,’
and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place.
But when you are invited,
go and sit in the lowest place,
so that when your host comes he may say to you,
‘Friend, go up higher;
then you will be honoured
in the presence of all who sit at table with you.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,
and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

The Gospel of the Lord.


Communion Antiphon.

The Lord has regarded his lowly handmaid; behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.
