Readings on p. 1385 and Antiphons on p. 1371 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.
To you I call; for you will surely heed me, O God; turn your ear to me; hear my words. Guard me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.


First Reading: Romans 6:19-23

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

Brothers and sisters:
I am speaking in human terms,
because of your natural limitations.
For just as you once yielded your members to impurity
and to greater and greater iniquity,
so now yield your members to righteousness for sanctification.

When you were slaves of sin,
you were free in regard to righteousness.
But then what return did you get
from the things of which you are now ashamed?
The end of those things is death.
But now that you have been set free from sin
and have become slaves of God,
the return you get is sanctification
and its end, eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death,
but the free gift of God
is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Word of the Lord.




Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 1:1-2.3.4 & 6 (R. Psalm 40:5ab)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Blessed the man who has placed his trust in the Lord.

Blessed indeed is the man
who follows not the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the path with sinners,
nor abides in the company of scorners,
but whose delight is the law of the Lord,
and who ponders his law day and night.

He is like a tree that is planted
beside the flowing waters,
that yields its fruit in due season,
and whose leaves shall never fade;
and all that he does shall prosper.

Not so are the wicked, not so!
For they, like winnowed chaff,
shall be driven away by the wind.
for the Lord knows the way of the just,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

R/. Blessed the man who has placed his trust in the Lord.


Please stand for the Gospel.

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.



Communion Antiphon.

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