Readings Tuesday Week 29 Ordinary Time

First Reading
Rom 5:12, 15b, 17-19, 20b-21

If by the trasgression of one person death came to reign, how much more will those who receive grace come to reign in life.

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans

Brothers and sisters:
Through one man sin entered the world,
   and through sin, death,
   and thus death came to all men, inasmuch as all sinned.

If by that one person’s transgression the many died,
   how much more did the grace of God
   and the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ
   overflow for the many.
For if, by the transgression of the one,
   death came to reign through that one,
   how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace
   and the gift of justification
   come to reign in life through the one Jesus Christ.
In conclusion, just as through one transgression
   condemnation came upon all,
   so, through one righteous act
   acquittal and life came to all.
For just as through the disobedience of one man
   the many were made sinners,
   so, through the obedience of
   the one the many will be made righteous.
Where sin increased, grace overflowed all the more,
   so that, as sin reigned in death,
   grace also might reign through justification
   for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Responsorial Psalm
Ps 40:7-8a, 8b-9, 10, 17

R. :

R. (8a and 9a) Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,
   but ears open to obedience you gave me.
Burnt offerings or sin‑offerings you sought not;
   then said I, “Behold I come.”

R. Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

“In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
To do your will, O my God, is my delight,
   and your law is within my heart!”

R. Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

I announced your justice in the vast assembly;
   I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.

R. Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

May all who seek you
   exult and be glad in you,
And may those who love your salvation
   say ever, “The LORD be glorified.”

R. Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

Gospel
Lk 12:35-38

Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Gird your loins and light your lamps
   and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding,
   ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those servants
   whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.
Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself,
   have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them.
And should he come in the second or third watch
   and find them prepared in this way,
   blessed are those servants.”

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.
