Readings at Mass


First reading
1 Corinthians 15:12-20 ©
Now if Christ raised from the dead is what has been preached, how can some of you be saying that there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, Christ himself cannot have been raised, and if Christ has not been raised then our preaching is useless and your believing it is useless; indeed, we are shown up as witnesses who have committed perjury before God, because we swore in evidence before God that he had raised Christ to life. For if the dead are not raised, Christ has not been raised, and if Christ has not been raised, you are still in your sins. And what is more serious, all who have died in Christ have perished. If our hope in Christ has been for this life only, we are the most unfortunate of all people.
  But Christ has in fact been raised from the dead, the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep.

Psalm
Psalm 16:1,6-8,15 ©
Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
Lord, hear a cause that is just,
  pay heed to my cry.
Turn your ear to my prayer:
  no deceit is on my lips.
Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
I am here and I call, you will hear me, O God.
  Turn your ear to me; hear my words.
Display your great love, you whose right hand saves
  your friends from those who rebel against them.
Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
Guard me as the apple of your eye.
  Hide me in the shadow of your wings
As for me, in my justice I shall see your face
  and be filled, when I awake, with the sight of your glory.
Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.

GospelLuke 8:1-3 ©
Jesus made his way through towns and villages preaching, and proclaiming the Good News of the kingdom of God. With him went the Twelve, as well as certain women who had been cured of evil spirits and ailments: Mary surnamed the Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, Joanna the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, Susanna, and several others who provided for them out of their own resources.
