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


First reading: 1 Corinthians 1:1-9

I, Paul, appointed by God to be an apostle, together with brother Sosthenes, send greetings to the church of God in Corinth, to the holy people of Jesus Christ, who are called to take their place among all the saints everywhere who pray to our Lord Jesus Christ; for he is their Lord no less than ours. May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ send you grace and peace.

I never stop thanking God for all the graces you have received through Jesus Christ. I thank him that you have been enriched in so many ways, especially in your teachers and preachers; the witness to Christ has indeed been strong among you so that you will not be without any of the gifts of the Spirit while you are waiting for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed; and he will keep you steady and without blame until the last day, the day of our Lord Jesus Christ, because God by calling you has joined you to his Son, Jesus Christ; and God is faithful.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 144(145):2-7

I will bless your name for ever, O Lord.

I will bless you day after day
  and praise your name for ever.
The Lord is great, highly to be praised,
  his greatness cannot be measured.

I will bless your name for ever, O Lord.

Age to age shall proclaim your works,
  shall declare your mighty deeds,
shall speak of your splendour and glory,
  tell the tale of your wonderful works.

I will bless your name for ever, O Lord.

They will speak of your terrible deeds,
  recount your greatness and might.
They will recall your abundant goodness;
  age to age shall ring out your justice.

I will bless your name for ever, O Lord.

Gospel Acclamation

 

Alleluia, alleluia!
I call you friends, says the Lord,
because I have made known to you
everything I have learnt from my Father.
Alleluia!
