MASS READINGS

Ez 17:22-24

A reading from the prophet Ezekiel

The Lord says this:

‘From the top of the cedar,

from the highest branch I will take a shoot

and plant it myself on a very high mountain.

I will plant it on the high mountain of Israel.

It will sprout branches and bear fruit,

and become a noble cedar.

Every kind of bird will live beneath it,

every winged creature rest in the shade of its branches.

And every tree of the field will learn that I, the Lord, am the one

who stunts tall trees and makes the low ones grow,

who withers green trees and makes the withered green.

I, the Lord, have spoken, and I will do it.’

To indicate the end of the reading, the reader acclaims:

The word of the Lord

Ps 91:2-3. 13-16. R. see v.2

(R.) Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.

 

1. It is good to give thanks to the Lord

to make music to your name, O Most High,

to proclaim your love in the morning

and your truth in the watches of the night. (R.)

 

2. The just will flourish like the palm-tree

and grow like a Lebanon cedar. (R.)

 

3. Planted in the house of the Lord

they will flourish in the courts of our God,

still bearing fruit when they are old,

still full of sap, still green,

to proclaim that the Lord is just.

In him, my rock, there is no wrong. (R.)

2 Cor 5:6-10

A reading from the second letter of St Paul to the Corinthians

We are always full of confidence when we remember that to live in the body means to be exiled from the Lord, going as we do by faith and not by sight – we are full of confidence, I say, and actually want to be exiled from the body and make our home with the Lord. Whether we are living in the body or exiled from it, we are intent on pleasing him. For all the truth about us will be brought out in the law court of Christ, and each of us will get what he deserves for the things he did in the body, good or bad.

To indicate the end of the reading, the reader acclaims:

The word of the Lord

Alleluia, alleluia!

The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower;

all who come to him will live for ever.

Alleluia!

Mk 4:26-34

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark

Jesus said to the crowds, ‘This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man throws seed on the land. Night and day, while he sleeps, when he is awake, the seed is sprouting and growing; how, he does not know. Of its own accord the land produces first the shoot, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the crop is ready, he loses no time; he starts to reap because the harvest has come.’

He also said, ‘What can we say the kingdom of God is like? What parable can we find for it? It is like a mustard seed which at the time of its sowing in the soil is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet once it is sown it grows into the biggest shrub of them all and puts out big branches so that the birds of the air can shelter in its shade.’

Using many parables like these, he spoke the word to them, so far as they were capable of understanding it. He would not speak to them except in parables, but he explained everything to his disciples when they were alone.

At the end of the Gospel, the Deacon, or the Priest, acclaims:

The Gospel of the Lord.

MASS READINGS

Acts 2:42-47

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

The whole community remained faithful to the teaching of the apostles, to the brotherhood, to the breaking of bread and to the prayers.
The many miracles and signs worked through the apostles made a deep impression on everyone.
The faithful all lived together and owned everything in common; they sold their goods and possessions and shared out the proceeds among themselves according to what each one needed.
They went as a body to the Temple every day but met in their houses for the breaking of bread; they shared their food gladly and generously; they praised God and were looked up to by everyone. Day by day the Lord added to their community those destined to be saved.

To indicate the end of the reading, the reader acclaims:

The word of the Lord

(R.) I will take the cup of salvation,

and call on the name of the Lord.

 

1. How can I repay the Lord

for his goodness to me?

The cup of salvation I will raise;

I will call on the Lord’s name. (R.)

 

2. O precious in the eyes of the Lord

is the death of his faithful.

Your servant Lord, your servant am I;

you have loosened my bonds. (R.)

 

3. A thanksgiving sacrifice I make:

I will call on the Lord’s name.

My vows to the Lord I will fulfil

before all his people. (R.)

1 Cor 11:23-26

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Corinthians

This is what I received from the Lord, and in turn passed on to you: that on the same night that he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and thanked God for it and broke it, and he said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this as a memorial of me.’ In the same way he took the cup after supper, and said, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.’ Until the Lord comes, therefore, every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are proclaiming his death.

To indicate the end of the reading, the reader acclaims:

The word of the Lord

Jn 6:51-52

Alleluia, alleluia!

I am the living bread from heaven, says the Lord;
whoever eats this bread will live for ever.

Alleluia!

Jn 6:48-51

A reading from the holy Gospel according to John.

Jesus said to the Jews:

I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread which comes down from heaven,
so that a person may eat it and not die.
‘I am the living bread which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.’

At the end of the Gospel, the Deacon, or the Priest, acclaims:

The Gospel of the Lord.
