These are the readings for the feria
|First reading||Judges 6:11-24 ©|
|'Peace be with you; have no fear; you will not die'|
|Psalm 84(85):9,11-14 ©|
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘I tell you solemnly, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Yes, I tell you again, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.’ When the disciples heard this they were astonished. ‘Who can be saved, then?’ they said. Jesus gazed at them. ‘For men’ he told them ‘this is impossible; for God everything is possible.’
Then Peter spoke. ‘What about us?’ he said to him ‘We have left everything and followed you. What are we to have, then?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I tell you solemnly, when all is made new and the Son of Man sits on his throne of glory, you will yourselves sit on twelve thrones to judge the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children or land for the sake of my name will be repaid a hundred times over, and also inherit eternal life.
‘Many who are first will be last, and the last, first.’
Ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν τοῖς μαθηταῖς αὐτοῦ· ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι πλούσιος δυσκόλως εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τῶν οὐρανῶν. πάλιν δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν, εὐκοπώτερον ἐστιν κάμηλον διὰ τρήματος ῥαφίδος εἰσελθεῖν ἢ πλούσιον εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ. ἀκούσαντες δὲ οἱ μαθηταὶ ἐξεπλήσσοντο σφόδρα λέγοντες· τίς ἄρα δύναται σωθῆναι; ἐμβλέψας δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· παρὰ ἀνθρώποις τοῦτο ἀδύνατον ἐστιν, παρὰ δὲ θεῷ πάντα δυνατά.
Τότε ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Πέτρος εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ἰδοὺ ἡμεῖς ἀφήκαμεν πάντα καὶ ἠκολουθήσαμεν σοι· τί ἄρα ἔσται ἡμῖν; ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ὑμεῖς οἱ ἀκολουθήσαντες μοι ἐν τῇ παλιγγενεσίᾳ, ὅταν καθίσῃ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐπὶ θρόνου δόξης αὐτοῦ, καθήσεσθε καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐπὶ δώδεκα θρόνους κρίνοντες τὰς δώδεκα φυλὰς τοῦ Ἰσραήλ. καὶ πᾶς ὅστις ἀφῆκεν οἰκίας ἢ ἀδελφοὺς ἢ ἀδελφὰς ἢ πατέρα ἢ μητέρα ἢ τέκνα ἢ ἀγροὺς ἕνεκεν τοῦ ἐμοῦ ὀνόματος, πολλαπλασίονα λήμψεται καὶ ζωὴν αἰώνιον κληρονομήσει.
πολλοὶ δὲ ἔσονται πρῶτοι ἔσχατοι καὶ ἔσχατοι πρῶτοι.
These are the readings for the memorial
|Ecclesiasticus 15:1-6 ©|
|Whoever grasps the Law will obtain wisdom|
|Psalm 118(119):9-14 ©|
Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:
I pray not only for these,
but for those also
who through their words will believe in me.
May they all be one.
Father, may they be one in us,
as you are in me and I am in you,
so that the world may believe it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so completely one
that the world will realise that it was you who sent me
and that I have loved them as much as you loved me.
Father, I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see the glory you have given me
because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
Father, Righteous One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them
and will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.’
οὐ περὶ τούτων δὲ ἐρωτῶ μόνον,
ἀλλὰ καὶ περὶ τῶν πιστεύοντων διὰ τοῦ λόγου αὐτῶν εἰς ἐμέ,
ἵνα πάντες ἐν ὦσιν
καθὼς σύ, πατὴρ ἐν ἐμοὶ καγὼ ἐν σοί,
ἵνα καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐν ἡμῖν ὦσιν,
ἵνα ὁ κόσμος πιστεύῃ ὅτι σύ με ἀπέστειλας.
καγὼ τὴν δόξαν ἣν δέδωκας μοι δέδωκα αὐτοῖς,
ἵνα ὦσιν ἓν καθὼς ἡμεῖς ἕν·
ἐγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ σὺ ἐν ἐμοί,
ἵνα ὦσιν τετελειωμένοι εἰς ἕν,
ἵνα γινώσκῃ ὁ κόσμος ὅτι σύ με ἀπέστειλας
καὶ ἠγάπησας αὐτοὺς καθὼς ἐμὲ ἠγάπησας.
Πατήρ, ὃ δέδωκας μοι,
θέλω ἵνα ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ κακεῖνοι ὦσιν μετ’ ἐμοῦ,
ἵνα θεωρῶσιν τὴν δόξαν τὴν ἐμήν, ἣν δέδωκας μοι
ὅτι ἠγάπησας με πρὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου.
καὶ ὁ κόσμος σε οὐκ ἔγνω,
ἐγὼ δέ σε ἔγνων,
καὶ οὗτοι ἔγνωσαν ὅτι σύ με ἀπέστειλας·
καὶ ἐγνώρισα αὐτοῖς τὸ ὄνομα σου
ἵνα ἡ ἀγάπη ἣν ἠγάπησας με ἐν αὐτοῖς ᾖ
καγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς.
