Mass Readings for other dates

Tuesday of Week 31
Saint Malachy of Armagh, bishop
First Reading: Romans 12: 5-16

5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ and individually parts of one another.

6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them: if prophecy, in proportion to the faith;

7 if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching;

8 if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; if one is over others, with diligence; if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

9 Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good;

10 love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor.

11 Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.

12 Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer.

13 Contribute to the needs of the holy ones, exercise hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute (you), bless and do not curse them.

15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.

16 Have the same regard for one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly; do not be wise in your own estimation.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 131: 1, 2, 3

1 A song of ascents. Of David. LORD, my heart is not proud; nor are my eyes haughty. I do not busy myself with great matters, with things too sublime for me.

2 Rather, I have stilled my soul, hushed it like a weaned child. Like a weaned child on its mother’s lap, so is my soul within me.

3 Israel, hope in the LORD, now and forever.

Gospel: Luke 14: 15-24

15 One of his fellow guests on hearing this said to him, “Blessed is the one who will dine in the kingdom of God.”

16 He replied to him, “A man gave a great dinner to which he invited many.

17 When the time for the dinner came, he dispatched his servant to say to those invited, ‘Come, everything is now ready.’

18 But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves. The first said to him, ‘I have purchased a field and must go to examine it; I ask you, consider me excused.’

19 And another said, ‘I have purchased five yoke of oxen and am on my way to evaluate them; I ask you, consider me excused.’

20 And another said, ‘I have just married a woman, and therefore I cannot come.’

21 The servant went and reported this to his master. Then the master of the house in a rage commanded his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in here the poor and the crippled, the blind and the lame.’

22 The servant reported, ‘Sir, your orders have been carried out and still there is room.’

23 The master then ordered the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedgerows and make people come in that my home may be filled.

24 For, I tell you, none of those men who were invited will taste my dinner.'”
