Romans 3:21-30; Luke 11:47-54


Twenty-Eighth Week in Ordinary Time, Year 1.
Readings on p. 1363 and Antiphons on p. 1350 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand? But with you is found forgiveness, O God of Israel.

First Reading: Romans 3:21-30

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

Brothers and sisters:
Now the righteousness of God
has been manifested apart from law,
although the law and the prophets bear witness to it,
the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ
for all who believe.

For there is no distinction;
since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
they are justified by his grace as a gift,
through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus,
whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood,
to be received by faith.
This was to show God’s righteousness
because in his divine forbearance
he had passed over former sins;
it was to prove at the present time
that he himself is righteous
and that he justifies the one who has faith in Jesus.

Then what becomes of our boasting?
It is excluded.
On what principle?
On the principle of works?
No, but on the principle of faith.
For we hold that a person is justified by faith
apart from works of law.
Or is God the God of Jews only?
Is he not the God of Gentiles also?
Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one;
and he will justify the circumcised on the ground of their faith
and the uncircumcised through their faith.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 130:1-2.3-4.5-6ab (R. 7bc)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. With the Lord there is mercy,
in him is plentiful redemption.

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice!
O let your ears be attentive
to the sound of my pleading.

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?
But with you is found forgiveness,
that you may be revered.

I long for you, O Lord,
my soul longs for his word.
My soul hopes in the Lord
more than watchmen for daybreak.

R/. With the Lord there is mercy,
in him is plentiful redemption.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
I am the way, and the truth, and the life, says the Lord;
no one comes to the Father but by me.
Alleluia.

 

 

Gospel: Luke 11:47-54

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said, “Woe to you!
for you build the tombs of the prophets
whom your ancestors killed.
So you are witnesses and consent to the deeds of your ancestors;
for they killed them,
and you build their tombs.
Therefore also the Wisdom of God said,
‘I will send them prophets and apostles,
some of whom they will kill and persecute,’
that the blood of all the prophets,
shed from the foundation of the world,
may be required of this generation,
from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah,
who perished between the altar and the sanctuary.
Yes, I tell you,
it shall be required of this generation.
Woe to you lawyers!
for you have taken away the key of knowledge;
you did not enter yourselves,
and you hindered those who were entering.”

As he went away from there,
the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard
and to provoke him to speak of many things,
lying in wait for him,
to catch him in something he might say.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
The rich suffer want and go hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no blessing.
