First Reading

Romans 5: 12, 15b, 17-19, 20b-21

Brothers and sisters:

Through one man sin entered the world,

and through sin, death,

and thus death came to all men, inasmuch as all sinned.

If by that one person's transgression the many died,

how much more did the grace of God

and the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ

overflow for the many.

For if, by the transgression of the one,

death came to reign through that one,

how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace

and the gift of justification

come to reign in life through the one Jesus Christ.

In conclusion, just as through one transgression

condemnation came upon all,

so, through one righteous act

acquittal and life came to all.

For just as through the disobedience of one man

the many were made sinners,

so, through the obedience of the one

the many will be made righteous.

Where sin increased, grace overflowed all the more,

so that, as sin reigned in death,

grace also might reign through justification

for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Responsorial Psalm

Ps 40:7-8a, 8b-9, 10, 17

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,

but ears open to obedience you gave me.

Burnt offerings or sin offerings you sought not;

then said I, "Behold I come."

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

"In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,

To do your will, O my God, is my delight,

and your law is within my heart!"

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

I announced your justice in the vast assembly;

I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

May all who seek you

exult and be glad in you,

And may those who love your salvation

say ever, "The LORD be glorified."

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.


Lk 21:36

Alleluia, alleluia.

Be vigilant at all times and pray

that you may have the strength to stand before the Son of Man.

Alleluia, alleluia.


Lk 12:35-38

Jesus said to his disciples:

"Gird your loins and light your lamps

and be like servants who await their master's return from a wedding,

ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.

Blessed are those servants

whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.

Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself,

have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them.

And should he come in the second or third watch

and find them prepared in this way,

blessed are those servants."
