Readings at Mass

Liturgical Colour: Green.


First readingGalatians 5:1-6 ©
It is faith, not the Law, that justifies us
When Christ freed us, he meant us to remain free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery. It is I, Paul, who tell you this: if you allow yourselves to be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you at all. With all solemnity I repeat my warning: Everyone who accepts circumcision is obliged to keep the whole Law. But if you do look to the Law to make you justified, then you have separated yourselves from Christ, and have fallen from grace. Christians are told by the Spirit to look to faith for those rewards that righteousness hopes for, since in Christ Jesus whether you are circumcised or not makes no difference – what matters is faith that makes its power felt through love.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 118(119):41,43-45,47-48 ©
Let your loving kindness come to me, O Lord.
Lord, let your love come upon me,
  the saving help of your promise.
Do not take the word of truth from my mouth
  for I trust in your decrees.
Let your loving kindness come to me, O Lord.
I shall always keep your law
  for ever and ever.
I shall walk in the path of freedom
  for I seek your precepts.
Let your loving kindness come to me, O Lord.
Your commands have been my delight;
  these I have loved.
I will worship your commands and love them
  and ponder your statutes.
Let your loving kindness come to me, O Lord.

GospelLuke 11:37-41 ©
Give thanks for what you have and it will all be clean
Jesus had just finished speaking when a Pharisee invited him to dine at his house. He went in and sat down at the table. The Pharisee saw this and was surprised that he had not first washed before the meal. But the Lord said to him, ‘Oh, you Pharisees! You clean the outside of cup and plate, while inside yourselves you are filled with extortion and wickedness. Fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside too? Instead, give alms from what you have and then indeed everything will be clean for you.’
