    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.


    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.


    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.


    Ordinary Time.


    Rom 8:31b-39

    Brothers and sisters:
    If God is for us, who can be against us?
    He did not spare his own Son
    but handed him over for us all,
    how will he not also give us everything else along with him?
    Who will bring a charge against God’s chosen ones?
    It is God who acquits us.
    Who will condemn?
    It is Christ Jesus who died, rather, was raised,
    who also is at the right hand of God,
    who indeed intercedes for us.
    What will separate us from the love of Christ?
    Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
    or nakedness, or peril, or the sword?
    As it is written:

    For your sake we are being slain all the day;
    we are looked upon as sheep to be slaughtered.

    No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly
    through him who loved us.
    For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
    nor angels, nor principalities,
    nor present things, nor future things,
    nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
    nor any other creature will be able to separate us
    from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.


    PS 109:21-22, 26-27, 30-31

    R. (26b) Save me, O Lord, in your mercy.
    Do you, O GOD, my Lord, deal kindly with me for your name’s sake;
    in your generous mercy rescue me;
    For I am wretched and poor,
    and my heart is pierced within me.
    R. Save me, O Lord, in your mercy.
    Help me, O LORD, my God;
    save me, in your mercy,
    And let them know that this is your hand;
    that you, O LORD, have done this.
    R. Save me, O Lord, in your mercy.
    I will speak my thanks earnestly to the LORD,
    and in the midst of the throng I will praise him,
    For he stood at the right hand of the poor man,
    to save him from those who would condemn his soul.
    R. Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.


    lk 13:31-35

    Some Pharisees came to Jesus and said,
    “Go away, leave this area because Herod wants to kill you.”
    He replied, “Go and tell that fox,
    ‘Behold, I cast out demons and I perform healings today and tomorrow,
    and on the third day I accomplish my purpose.
    Yet I must continue on my way today, tomorrow, and the following day,
    for it is impossible that a prophet should die
    outside of Jerusalem.’

    “Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
    you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you,
    how many times I yearned to gather your children together
    as a hen gathers her brood under her wings,
    but you were unwilling!
    Behold, your house will be abandoned.
    But I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say,
    Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”
