And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NLT)

  1. Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles

    Reading 1 EPH 2:19-22

    Brothers and sisters:
    You are no longer strangers and sojourners,
    but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones
    and members of the household of God, 
    built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets,
    with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.
    Through him the whole structure is held together
    and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord;
    in him you also are being built together
    into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

    Responsorial Psalm PS 19:2-3, 4-5

    R. (5a) Their message goes out through all the earth.
    The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    Day pours out the word to day,
    and night to night imparts knowledge.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
    Not a word nor a discourse
    whose voice is not heard;
    Through all the earth their voice resounds,
    and to the ends of the world, their message.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.

     

     

    Alleluia 

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    We praise you, O God,
    we acclaim you as Lord;
    the glorious company of Apostles praise you.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel LK 6:12-16

    Jesus went up to the mountain to pray,
    and he spent the night in prayer to God.
    When day came, he called his disciples to himself,
    and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles:
    Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew,
    James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew,
    Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus,
    Simon who was called a Zealot,
    and Judas the son of James,
    and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
