The Liturgy of the Word


First Reading

Wisdom 2:23-3:9

God made man imperishable he made him in the image of his own nature; it was the devil’s envy that brought death into the world as those who are his partners will discover. But the souls of the virtuous are in the hands of God no torment shall ever touch them. In the eyes of the unwise they did appear to die their going looked like a disaster their leaving us like annihilation; but they are in peace.

If they experienced punishment as men see it their hope was rich with immortality; slight was their affliction great will their blessings be. God has put them to the test and proved them worthy to be with him; he has tested them like gold in a furnace and accepted them as a holocaust. When the time comes for his visitation they will shine out; as sparks run through the stubble so will they. They shall judge nations rule over peoples and the Lord will be their king for ever. They who trust in him will understand the truth those who are faithful will live with him in love; for grace and mercy await those he has chosen.


Psalm

Psalm 33(34):2-3 16-19

I will bless the Lord at all times.

I will bless the Lord at all times
his praise always on my lips;
in the Lord my soul shall make its boast.
The humble shall hear and be glad.

I will bless the Lord at all times.

The Lord turns his face against the wicked
to destroy their remembrance from the earth.
The Lord turns his eyes to the just
and his ears to their appeal.

I will bless the Lord at all times.

They call and the Lord hears
and rescues them in all their distress.
The Lord is close to the broken-hearted;
those whose spirit is crushed he will save.

I will bless the Lord at all times.


 Gospel

Luke 17:7-10

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Which of you with a servant ploughing or minding sheep would say to him when he returned from the fields “Come and have your meal immediately”? Would he not be more likely to say “Get my supper laid; make yourself tidy and wait on me while I eat and drink. You can eat and drink yourself afterwards”? Must he be grateful to the servant for doing what he was told? So with you: when you have done all you have been told to do say “We are merely servants: we have done no more than our duty.”’
