Thursday in Twenty-Ninth Week in Ordinary Time – Year II
Readings on p. 1386 and Antiphons on p. 1371 of the Daily Missal.


First Reading: Ephesians 3:14-21

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

Brothers and sisters:

I bow my knees before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
that according to the riches of his glory
he may grant you to be strengthened with might
through his Spirit in the inner man,
and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may have power to comprehend with all the saints
what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled with all the fulness of God.

Now to him who by the power at work within us
is able to do far more abundantly
than all that we ask or think,
to him be glory in the Church
and in Christ Jesus to all generations,
forever and ever.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 33:1-2.4-5.11-12.18-19 (R. 5b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. The Lord’s merciful love fills the earth.

Ring out your joy to the Lord, O you just;
for praise is fitting for the upright.
Give thanks to the Lord upon the harp;
with a ten-stringed lute sing him songs.

For the word of the Lord is faithful,
and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord loves justice and right,
and his merciful love fills the earth.

The designs of the Lord stand forever,
the plans of his heart from age to age.
Blessed the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his heritage.

Yes, the Lord’s eyes are on those who fear him,
who hope in his merciful love,
to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.

R/. The Lord’s merciful love fills the earth.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
I count everything as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him.



Gospel: Luke 12:49-53

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“I came to cast fire upon the earth,
and would that it were already kindled!
I have a baptism to be baptized with;
and how I am constrained until it is accomplished!
Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth?
No, I tell you, but rather division;
for henceforth in one house there will be five divided,
three against two and two against three;
they will be divided,
father against son and son against father,
mother against daughter and daughter against her mother,
mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
