Readings of the Day: Friday of the Twenty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time

Reading of the Day
1 Corinthians 15:12-20

  • 12 Now if Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
  • 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised;
  • 14 if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.
  • 15 We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified of God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised.
  • 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised.
  • 17 If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.
  • 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
  • 19 If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all men most to be pitied.
  • 20 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 17:1, 6-8, 15

Response: Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full

  • 1 Hear a just cause, O LORD; attend to my cry! Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit! R
  • 6 I call upon thee, for thou wilt answer me, O God; incline thy ear to me, hear my words.
  • 7 Wondrously show thy steadfast love, O savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at thy right hand. R
  • 8 Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me in the shadow of thy wings,
  • 15 As for me, I shall behold thy face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with beholding thy form. R


Gospel for the Day

Luke 8:1-3

  • 1 Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages, preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him,

  • 3 and Joan'na, the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their means.
