Ordinary Time 9th week Tuesday Cycle II All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: 2 Peter 3:11-15,17-18

You should be living holy and saintly lives while you wait and long for the Day of God to come, when the sky will dissolve in flames and the elements melt in the heat. What we are waiting for is what he promised: the new heavens and new earth, the place where righteousness will be at home. So then, my friends, while you are waiting, do your best to live lives without spot or stain so that he will find you at peace. Think of our Lord’s patience as your opportunity to be saved. You have been warned about this, my friends; be careful not to get carried away by the errors of unprincipled people, from the firm ground that you are standing on. Instead, go on growing in the grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory, in time and in eternity. Amen.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 89(90):2-4,10,14,16

O Lord, you have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

Before the mountains were born 
  or the earth or the world brought forth,
  you are God, without beginning or end.

O Lord, you have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

You turn men back to dust 
  and say: ‘Go back, sons of men.’
To your eyes a thousand years 
  are like yesterday, come and gone, 
  no more than a watch in the night.

O Lord, you have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

Our span is seventy years, 
  or eighty for those who are strong.
And most of these are emptiness and pain.
  They pass swiftly and we are gone.

O Lord, you have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

In the morning, fill us with your love;
  we shall exult and rejoice all our days.
Show forth your work to your servants;
  let your glory shine on their children.

O Lord, you have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

Gospel Acclamation
