Ordinary Time 21st week Monday Cycle II All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: 2 Thessalonians 1:1-5,11-12

From Paul, Silvanus and Timothy, to the Church in Thessalonika which is in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ; wishing you grace and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

We feel we must be continually thanking God for you, brothers; quite rightly, because your faith is growing so wonderfully and the love that you have for one another never stops increasing; and among the churches of God we can take special pride in you for your constancy and faith under all the persecutions and troubles you have to bear. It all shows that God’s judgement is just, and the purpose of it is that you may be found worthy of the kingdom of God; it is for the sake of this that you are suffering now.

Knowing this, we pray continually that our God will make you worthy of his call, and by his power fulfil all your desires for goodness and complete all that you have been doing through faith; because in this way the name of our Lord Jesus Christ will be glorified in you and you in him, by the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 95(96):1-5

Proclaim the wonders of the Lord among all the peoples.

O sing a new song to the Lord,
  sing to the Lord all the earth.
  O sing to the Lord, bless his name.

Proclaim the wonders of the Lord among all the peoples.

Proclaim his help day by day,
  tell among the nations his glory
  and his wonders among all the peoples.

Proclaim the wonders of the Lord among all the peoples.

The Lord is great and worthy of praise,
  to be feared above all gods;
  the gods of the heathens are naught.

Proclaim the wonders of the Lord among all the peoples.

Gospel Acclamation

Alleluia!
