Reading for the day
Ephesians 2:19-22

  • 19 So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
  • 20 built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
  • 21 in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord;
  • 22 in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.


Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 19:2-5

Response:  Their message goes out through all the earth.

  • 1 The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
  • 2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. R
  • 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;
  • 4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, R


Gospel for the Day

Luke 6:12-19

  • 12 In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God.
  • 13 And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles;
  • 14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew,
  • 15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot,
  • 16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
  • 17 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases;
  • 18 and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured.
  • 19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came forth from him and healed them all.
