  • The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls) 2018:


    Wisdom 3:1-9

    1But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. 2In the eyes of the foolish they seemed to have died, and their departure was thought to be an affliction, 3and their going from us to be their destruction;but they are at peace. 4For though in the sight of men they were punished, their hope is full of immortality. 5Having been disciplined a little, they will receive great good, because God tested them and found them worthy of himself;6like gold in the furnace he tried them, and like a sacrificial burnt offering he accepted them. 7In the time of their visitation they will shine forth, and will run like sparks through the stubble. 8They will govern nations and rule over peoples, and the Lord will reign over them for ever. 9Those who trust in him will understand truth, and the faithful will abide with him in love, because grace and mercy are upon his elect, and he watches over his holy ones.


    Psalms 27:1, 4, 7-9, 13-14

    1The LORD is my light and my salvation;whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life;of whom shall I be afraid? 4One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after;that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. 7Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud, be gracious to me and answer me! 8Thou hast said, "Seek ye my face." My heart says to thee, "Thy face, LORD, do I seek." 9Hide not thy face from me. Turn not thy servant away in anger, thou who hast been my help. Cast me not off, forsake me not, O God of my salvation! 13I believe that I shall see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! 14Wait for the LORD;be strong, and let your heart take courage;yea, wait for the LORD!


    Romans 5:5-11

    5and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. 6While we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7Why, one will hardly die for a righteous man -- though perhaps for a good man one will dare even to die. 8But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we are now justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11Not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received our reconciliation.


    John 11:17-27

    17Now when Jesus came, he found that Laz'arus had already been in the tomb four days. 18Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off, 19and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. 20When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary sat in the house. 21Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22And even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you." 23Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." 24Martha said to him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." 25Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life;he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?" 27She said to him, "Yes, Lord;I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world."

    phil 1:1-11

    Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus,
    to all the holy ones in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi,
    with the bishops and deacons:
    grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    I give thanks to my God at every remembrance of you,
    praying always with joy in my every prayer for all of you,
    because of your partnership for the Gospel
    from the first day until now.
    I am confident of this,
    that the one who began a good work in you
    will continue to complete it
    until the day of Christ Jesus.
    It is right that I should think this way about all of you,
    because I hold you in my heart,
    you who are all partners with me in grace,
    both in my imprisonment
    and in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel.
    For God is my witness,
    how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
    And this is my prayer:
    that your love may increase ever more and more
    in knowledge and every kind of perception,
    to discern what is of value,
    so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
    filled with the fruit of righteousness
    that comes through Jesus Christ
    for the glory and praise of God.


    ps 111:1-2, 3-4, 5-6

    R. (2) How great are the works of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.
    I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart
    in the company and assembly of the just.
    Great are the works of the LORD,
    exquisite in all their delights.
    R. How great are the works of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.
    Majesty and glory are his work,
    and his justice endures forever.
    He has won renown for his wondrous deeds;
    gracious and merciful is the LORD.
    R. How great are the works of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.
    He has given food to those who fear him;
    he will forever be mindful of his covenant.
    He has made known to his people the power of his works,
    giving them the inheritance of the nations.
    R. How great are the works of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.


    lk 14:1-6

    On a sabbath Jesus went to dine
    at the home of one of the leading Pharisees,
    and the people there were observing him carefully.
    In front of him there was a man suffering from dropsy.
    Jesus spoke to the scholars of the law and Pharisees in reply, asking,
    “Is it lawful to cure on the sabbath or not?”
    But they kept silent;so he took the man and,
    after he had healed him, dismissed him.
    Then he said to them
    “Who among you, if your son or ox falls into a cistern,
    would not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?”
    But they were unable to answer his question.
