Entrance Antiphon
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I cry to you all the day long. O Lord, you are good and forgiving, full of mercy to all who call to you.


First Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6, 9-11

A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians

As to the times and the seasons, brothers and sisters,
you have no need to have anything written to you.
For you, yourselves know well
that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
When people say, “There is peace and security,”
then sudden destruction will come upon them
as labour pains come upon a woman with child,
and there will be no escape.
But you are not in darkness, brothers and sisters,
for that day to surprise you like a thief.
For you are all sons and daughters of light
and sons and daughters of the day;
we are not of the night or of darkness.
So then let us not sleep, as others do,
but let us keep awake and be sober.

For God has not destined us for wrath,
but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who died for us so that whether we wake or sleep
we might live with him.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up,
just as you are doing.

The Word of the Lord


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 27:1, 4, 13-14 (R. 13)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. I believe I shall see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
whom should I dread?

There is one thing I ask of the Lord,
only this do I seek:
to live in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord,
to inquire at his temple.

I believe I shall see the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord; be strong;
be stout hearted, and wait for the Lord!

R/. I believe I shall see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.

Alleluia, alleluia.
A great prophet has arisen among us,
and God has visited his people.



Gospel: Luke 4:31-37

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time:
Jesus went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee.
And he was teaching them on the sabbath;
and they were astonished at his teaching,
for his word was with authority.
And in the synagogue
there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon;
and he cried out with a loud voice,
“Ah! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us?
I know who you are,
the Holy One of God.”

But Jesus rebuked him, saying,
“Be silent, and come out of him!”
And when the demon had thrown him down in the midst,
he came out of him, having done him no harm.

And they were all amazed and said to one another,
“What is this word?
For with authority and power, he commands the unclean spirits,
and they come out.”
And reports of him went out
into every place in the surrounding region.

The Gospel of the Lord

Communion Antiphon
How great is the goodness, Lord, that you keep for those who fear you.
