Romans 4:13.16-18; Luke 12:8-12

Twenty-Ninth Week in Ordinary Time – Year 1
Readings on p. 1380 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 5:12.15b.17-19.20b-21

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

Brothers and sisters:
As sin came into the world through one man
and death through sin,
and so death spread to all people because all people sinned.

For if many died through one man’s trespass,
much more have the grace of God
and the free gift in the grace
of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.

If, because of one man’s trespass,
death reigned through that one man,
much more will those who receive the abundance of grace
and the free gift of righteousness
reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

Then as one man’s trespass
led to condemnation for all people,
so one man’s act of righteousness
leads to acquittal and life for all people.
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners,
so by one man’s obedience, many will be made righteous.

Where sin increased,
grace abounded all the more,
so that, as sin reigned in death,
grace also might reign through righteousness
to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 40:7-8a.8b-9.10.17 (R. see 8a.9a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. See, I have come, Lord, to do your will.

You delight not in sacrifice and offerings,
but in an open ear.
You do not ask for holocaust and victim.
Then I said, “See, I have come.”

In the scroll of the book it stands written of me:
“I delight to do your will, O my God;
your instruction lies deep within me.”

Your justice I have proclaimed
in the great assembly.
My lips I have not sealed;
you know it, O Lord.

O let there be rejoicing and gladness
for all who seek you.
Let them ever say, “The Lord is great,”
who long for your salvation.

R/. See, I have come, Lord, to do your will.


Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
Watch at all times, praying
that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.

Gospel: Luke 12:35-38

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning,
and be like those who are waiting for their master
to come home from the marriage feast,
so that they may open to him at once
when he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those servants
whom the master finds awake when he comes;
truly, I say to you,
he will put on his apron and have them sit at table,
and he will come and serve them.
If he comes in the second watch,
or in the third,
and finds them so,
blessed are those servants!

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.
