Readings Saturday Week 25 Ordinary Time

First Reading
Zec 2:5-9, 14-15a

See, I am coming to dwell among you.

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Zechariah

I, Zechariah, raised my eyes and looked:
   there was a man with a measuring line in his hand.
I asked, “Where are you going?”
He answered, “To measure Jerusalem,
   to see how great is its width and how great its length.”

Then the angel who spoke with me advanced,
   and another angel came out to meet him and said to him,
   “Run, tell this to that young man:
   People will live in Jerusalem as though in open country,
   because of the multitude of men and beasts in her midst.
But I will be for her an encircling wall of fire, says the LORD,
   and I will be the glory in her midst.”

Sing and rejoice, O daughter Zion!
See, I am coming to dwell among you, says the LORD.
Many nations shall join themselves to the LORD on that day,
   and they shall be his people and he will dwell among you.


Responsorial Psalm
Jer 31:10, 11-12ab, 13

R. :

R. (see 10d) The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.

Hear the word of the LORD, O nations,
   proclaim it on distant isles, and say:
He who scattered Israel, now gathers them together,
   he guards them as a shepherd guards his flock.

R. The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.

The LORD shall ransom Jacob,
   he shall redeem him from the hand of his conqueror.
Shouting, they shall mount the heights of Zion,
   they shall come streaming to the LORD’s blessings.

R. The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.

Then the virgins shall make merry and dance,
   and young men and old as well.
I will turn their mourning into joy,
   I will console and gladden them after their sorrows.

R. The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.

Gospel
Lk 9:43b-45

The Son of Man is to be handed over to men. They were afraid to ask him about this saying.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

While they were all amazed at his every deed,
   Jesus said to his disciples,
   “Pay attention to what I am telling you.
The Son of Man is to be handed over to men.”
But they did not understand this saying;
   its meaning was hidden from them
   and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.

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

The Gospel of the Lord.

All reply:

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Then he kisses the book, saying quietly:

Through the words of the Gospel
may our sins be wiped away.
