Entrance Antiphon.
Let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice; Turn to the Lord and his strength; constantly seek his face.

First Reading: Romans 8:18-25

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

Brothers and sisters:
I consider that the sufferings of this present time
are not worth comparing
with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

For the creation waits with eager longing
for the revealing of the children of God;
for the creation was subjected to futility,
not of its own will
but by the will of him who subjected it in hope;
because the creation itself will be set free
from its bondage to decay
and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God.
We know that the whole creation
has been groaning with labour pains together until now;
and not only the creation,
but we ourselves,
who have the first fruits of the Spirit,
groan inwardly as we wait for adoption as children,
the redemption of our bodies.
For in this hope we were saved.
Now hope that is seen is not hope.
For who hopes for what he sees?
But if we hope for what we do not see,
we wait for it with patience.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 126:1-2ab.2cd-3.4-5.6 (R. 3a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. What great deeds the Lord worked for us!

When the Lord brought back the exiles of Sion,
we thought we were dreaming.
Then was our mouth filled with laughter;
on our tongues, songs of joy.

Then the nations themselves said,
“What great deeds
the Lord worked for them!”
What great deeds the Lord worked for us!
Indeed, we were glad.

Bring back our exiles, O Lord,
as streams in the south.
Those who are sowing in tears
will sing when they reap.

They go out, they go out, full of tears,
bearing seed for the sowing;
they come back, they come back with a song,
bearing their sheaves.

R/. What great deeds the Lord worked for us!

 

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
that you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.
Alleluia.

 

 

 

 

Gospel: Luke 13:18-21

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said, “What is the kingdom of God like?
And to what shall I compare it?
It is like a grain of mustard seed
which a man took and sowed in his garden;
and it grew and became a tree,
and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.”

And again he said,
“To what shall I compare the kingdom of God?
It is like leaven which a woman took
and hid in three measures of meal,
till it was all leavened.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

 

 

Communion Antiphon.

We will ring out our joy at your saving help, and exult in the name of our God.
