Reading for the Day
Ephesians 5:21-33

  • 21 Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.
  • 22 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord.
  • 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.
  • 24 As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.
  • 25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
  • 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
  • 27 that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
  • 28 Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
  • 29 For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church,
  • 30 because we are members of his body.
  • 31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
  • 32 This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church;
  • 33 however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 128:1-5

Response: Happy are those who fear the Lord. 

  • 1 Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways!
  • 2 You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. R
  • 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. R
  • 4 Lo, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.
  • 5 The LORD bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life! R

Gospel for the Day
Luke 13:18-21

  • 18 He said therefore, "What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it?
  • 19 It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches."
  • 20 And again he said, "To what shall I compare the kingdom of God?
  • 21 It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened."
