Readings at Mass

Liturgical Colour: Green.


First readingProverbs 30:5-9 ©
Give me neither riches nor poverty, only my share
Every word of God is unalloyed,
  he is the shield of those who take refuge in him.
To his words make no addition,
  lest he reprove you and know you for a fraud.
Two things I beg of you,
  do not grudge me them before I die:
keep falsehood and lies far from me,
  give me neither poverty nor riches,
  grant me only my share of bread to eat,
for fear that surrounded by plenty, I should fall away
  and say, ‘the Lord – who is the Lord?’
or else, in destitution, take to stealing
  and profane the name of my God.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 118(119):28,72,89,101,104,163 ©
Your word is a lamp for my steps, O Lord.
My soul pines away with grief;
  by your word raise me up.
The law from your mouth means more to me
  than silver and gold.
Your word is a lamp for my steps, O Lord.
Your word, O Lord, for ever
  stands firm in the heavens:
I turn my feet from evil paths
  to obey your word.
Your word is a lamp for my steps, O Lord.
I gain understanding from your precepts
  and so I hate false ways.
Lies I hate and detest
  but your law is my love.
Your word is a lamp for my steps, O Lord.

GospelLuke 9:1-6 ©
'Take nothing for the journey'
Jesus called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. He said to them, ‘Take nothing for the journey: neither staff, nor haversack, nor bread, nor money; and let none of you take a spare tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there; and when you leave, let it be from there. As for those who do not welcome you, when you leave their town shake the dust from your feet as a sign to them.’ So they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the Good News and healing everywhere.
