Jonah 3:1-10; Luke 10:38-42

Twenty-Seventh Week in Ordinary Time, Year 1.
Readings on p. 1336 and Antiphons on p. 1326 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.
Within your will, O Lord, all things are established and there is none that can resist your will. For you have made all things, the heaven and the earth, and all that is held within the circle of heaven; you are the Lord of all.


First Reading: Jonah 3:1-10

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Jonah.

The word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time,
saying, “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city,
and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.”

So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh,
according to the word of the Lord.
Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city,
three days’ journey in breadth.
Jonah began to go into the city,
going a day’s journey.
And he cried, “Yet forty days,
and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”
And the people of Nineveh believed God;
they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth,
from the greatest of them to the least of them.

Then tidings reached the king of Nineveh,
and he arose from his throne,
removed his robe, and covered himself with sackcloth,
and sat in ashes.
And he made proclamation and published through Nineveh,
“By the decree of the king and his nobles:
Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything;
let them not feed, or drink water,
but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth,
and let them cry mightily to God;
yes, let every one turn from his evil way
and from the violence which is in his hands.
Who knows,
God may yet repent and turn from his fierce anger
so that we perish not?”

When God saw what they did,
how they turned from their evil way,
God repented of the evil
which he had said he would do to them,
and he did not do it.

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 130:1-2.3-4.7bc-8 (R. 3)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord,
who could stand?

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.

For with the Lord, there is mercy,
in him is plentiful redemption.
It is he who will redeem Israel
from all its iniquities.

R/. If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord,
who could stand?

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
Blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it.



Gospel: Luke 10:38-42

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus entered a village,
and a woman named Martha received him into her house.
And she had a sister called Mary,
who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching.
But Martha was distracted with much serving;
and she went to him and said, “Lord,
do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone?
Tell her then to help me.”

But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha,
you are anxious and troubled about many things;
one thing is needful.
Mary has chosen the good portion,
which shall not be taken away from her.”

The Gospel of the Lord.


Communion Antiphon.
The Lord is good to those who hope in him, to the soul that seeks him.
