Readings on p.1312 and Antiphons on p 1302 of the Daily Missal.
All that you have done to us, O Lord, you have done with true judgement, for we have sinned against you and not obeyed your commandments. But give glory to your name, and deal with us according to the bounty of your mercy.
First Reading: Zechariah 8:20-23
A reading from the Book of the Prophet Zechariah.
“Thus says the Lord of hosts:
Peoples shall yet come,
even the inhabitants of many cities;
the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying,
‘Let us go at once to entreat the favour of the Lord
and to seek the Lord of hosts;
I am going.’
Many peoples and strong nations
shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem
and to entreat the favour of the Lord.
Thus says the Lord of hosts:
In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue
shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying,
‘Let us go with you,
for we have heard that God is with you.’”
The Word of the Lord.
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 87:1-7 (R. Zechariah 8:23)
Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:
R/. God is with us.
Founded by him on the holy mountain,
the Lord loves the gates of Sion,
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
Of you are told glorious things,
you, O city of God!
“Rahab and Babylon I will count
among those who know me;
of Tyre, Philistia, Ethiopia, it is told,
There was this one born.’
But of Sion it shall be said,
‘Each one was born in her.’”
He, the Most High, established it.
In his register of peoples, the Lord writes,
“Here was this one born.”
The singers cry out in chorus,
“In you, all find their home.”
R/. God is with us.
Please stand for the Gospel
The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Gospel: Luke 9:51-56
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.
When the days drew near for Jesus to be received up,
he set his face to go to Jerusalem.
And he sent messengers ahead of him,
who went and entered a village of the Samaritans,
to make ready for him;
but the people would not receive him,
because his face was set toward Jerusalem.
And when his disciples James and John saw it,
they said, “Lord,
do you want us to bid fire come down from heaven
and consume them?”
But he turned and rebuked them.
And they went on to another village.
The Gospel of the Lord.
Remember your word to your servant, O Lord, by which you have given me hope. This is my comfort when I am brought low.
