Weekday of Ordinary Time (24)

FIRST READING                                                   1 Corinthians 12:12-14.27-31a

“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.”

A reading from the first Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians

Brethren: Just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptised into one body — Jews or Greeks, slaves or free — and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but of many. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. And God has appointed in the Church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, then healers, helpers, administrators, speakers in various kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the higher gifts.

The word of the Lord.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM                                           Psalm 100:1-2.3.4.5 (R. 3c)

R. We are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.

Serve the Lord with gladness.

Come before him, singing for joy. R.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.

He made us; we belong to him.

We are his people, the sheep of his flock. R.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving

and his courts with songs of praise.

Give thanks to him, and bless his name. R.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,

eternal his merciful love.

He is faithful from age to age. R.

ALLELUIA                                                                                              Luke 7:16

 GOSPEL                                                                                              Luke 7:11- l7

“Young man, I say to you, arise.”

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time: Jesus went to a city called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. As he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” And he came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” And the dead man sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. Fear seized them all; and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and “God has visited his people!” And this report concerning him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.

The Gospel of the Lord.

‘Just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.’ Being individual members of the body of Christ, we should endeavour to contribute our own quota individually and collectively for the greater good of our lives and the world.
