Reading 1, Revelation 5:1-10
1 I saw that in the right hand of the One sitting on the throne there was a scroll that was written on back and front and was sealed with seven seals.
2 Then I saw a powerful angel who called with a loud voice, 'Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?'
3 But there was no one, in heaven or on the earth or under the earth, who was able to open the scroll and read it.
4 I wept bitterly because nobody could be found to open the scroll and read it,
Reading 1, Revelation 4:1-11
1 Then, in my vision, I saw a door open in heaven and heard the same voice speaking to me, the voice like a trumpet, saying, 'Come up here: I will show you what is to take place in the future.'
2 With that, I fell into ecstasy and I saw a throne standing in heaven, and the One who was sitting on the throne,
3 and the One sitting there looked like a diamond and a ruby. There was a rainbow encircling the throne, and this looked like an emerald.
4 Round the throne ...
Reading 1, Revelation 3:1-6, 14-22
1 'Write to the angel of the church in Sardis and say, "Here is the message of the one who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: I know about your behaviour: how you are reputed to be alive and yet are dead.
2 Wake up; put some resolve into what little vigour you have left: it is dying fast. So far I have failed to notice anything in your behaviour that my God could possibly call perfect;
3 remember how you first heard the message. Hold on to ...
Reading 1, Revelation 1:1-4; 2:1-5
1 A revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him so that he could tell his servants what is now to take place very soon; he sent his angel to make it known to his servant John,
2 and John has borne witness to the Word of God and to the witness of Jesus Christ, everything that he saw.
3 Blessed is anyone who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed those who hear them, if they treasure the content, because the Time is near.
4 John, to the seven ...
Reading 1, Malachi 3:19-20
19 'For look, the Day is coming, glowing like a furnace. All the proud and all the evil-doers will be the stubble, and the Day, when it comes, will set them ablaze, says Yahweh Sabaoth, leaving them neither root nor branch.
20 But for you who fear my name, the Sun of justice will rise with healing in his rays, and you will come out leaping like calves from the stall,
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 98:5-6, 7-8, 9
5 Play to Yahweh on the harp, to the sound of ...
Reading 1, Third John 1:5-8
5 My dear friend, you have done loyal work in helping these brothers, even though they were strangers to you.
6 They are a proof to the whole Church of your love and it would be a kindness if you could help them on their journey as God would approve.
7 It was entirely for the sake of the name that they set out, without depending on the non-believers for anything:
8 it is our duty to welcome people of this sort and contribute our share to their work for the ...
Reading 1, Second John 1:4-9
4 It has given me great joy to find that children of yours have been living the life of truth as we were commanded by the Father.
5 And now I am asking you -- dear lady, not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but only the one which we have had from the beginning -- that we should love one another.
6 To love is to live according to his commandments: this is the commandment which you have heard since the beginning, to live a life of love.
7 There are ...
Reading 1, Philemon 1:7-20
7 I have received much joy and encouragement by your love; you have set the hearts of God's holy people at rest.
8 Therefore, although in Christ I have no hesitations about telling you what your duty is,
9 I am rather appealing to your love, being what I am, Paul, an old man, and now also a prisoner of Christ Jesus.
10 I am appealing to you for a child of mine, whose father I became while wearing these chains: I mean Onesimus.
11 He was of no use to you before, ...
Reading 1, Ezekiel 47:1-2, 8-9, 12
1 He brought me back to the entrance of the Temple, where a stream flowed eastwards from under the Temple threshold, for the Temple faced east. The water flowed from under the right side of the Temple, south of the altar.
2 He took me out by the north gate and led me right round outside as far as the outer east gate where the water flowed out on the right-hand side.
8 He said, 'This water flows east down to the Arabah and to the sea; and flowing into the sea ...
Reading 1, Titus 2:1-8, 11-14
1 It is for you, then, to preach the behaviour which goes with healthy doctrine.
2 Older men should be reserved, dignified, moderate, sound in faith and love and perseverance.
3 Similarly, older women should behave as befits religious people, with no scandal-mongering and no addiction to wine -- they must be the teachers of right behaviour
4 and show younger women how they should love their husbands and love their children,
5 how they must be sensible and ...
Reading 1, Titus 1:1-9
1 From Paul, servant of God, an apostle of Jesus Christ to bring those whom God has chosen to faith and to the knowledge of the truth that leads to true religion,
2 and to give them the hope of the eternal life that was promised so long ago by God. He does not lie
3 and so, in due time, he made known his message by a proclamation which was entrusted to me by the command of God our Saviour.
4 To Titus, true child of mine in the faith that we share. Grace and peace from ...

Reading 1, Second Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14
1 It also happened that seven brothers were arrested with their mother. The king tried to force them to taste some pork, which the Law forbids, by torturing them with whips and scourges.
2 One of them, acting as spokesman for the others, said, 'What are you trying to find out from us? We are prepared to die rather than break the laws of our ancestors.'
9 With his last breath he exclaimed, 'Cruel brute, you may discharge us from this present life, but ...
Reading 1, Philippians 4:10-19
10 As for me, I am full of joy in the Lord, now that at last your consideration for me has blossomed again; though I recognise that you really did have consideration before, but had no opportunity to show it.
11 I do not say this because I have lacked anything; I have learnt to manage with whatever I have.
12 I know how to live modestly, and I know how to live luxuriously too: in every way now I have mastered the secret of all conditions: full stomach and empty ...
Reading 1, Philippians 3:17-4:1
17 Brothers, be united in imitating me. Keep your eyes fixed on those who act according to the example you have from me.
18 For there are so many people of whom I have often warned you, and now I warn you again with tears in my eyes, who behave like the enemies of Christ's cross.
19 They are destined to be lost; their god is the stomach; they glory in what they should think shameful, since their minds are set on earthly things.
20 But our homeland is in heaven ...
Reading 1, Philippians 3:3-8
3 We are the true people of the circumcision since we worship by the Spirit of God and make Christ Jesus our only boast, not relying on physical qualifications,
4 although, I myself could rely on these too. If anyone does claim to rely on them, my claim is better.
5 Circumcised on the eighth day of my life, I was born of the race of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrew parents. In the matter of the Law, I was a Pharisee;
6 as for religious ...
Reading 1, Wisdom 3:1-9
1 But the souls of the upright are in the hands of God, and no torment can touch them.
2 To the unenlightened, they appeared to die, their departure was regarded as disaster,
3 their leaving us like annihilation; but they are at peace.
4 If, as it seemed to us, they suffered punishment, their hope was rich with immortality;
5 slight was their correction, great will their blessings be. God was putting them to the test and has proved them worthy to be with him;
6 he ...
Reading 1, Revelation 7:2-4, 9-14
2 Then I saw another angel rising where the sun rises, carrying the seal of the living God; he called in a powerful voice to the four angels whose duty was to devastate land and sea,
3 'Wait before you do any damage on land or at sea or to the trees, until we have put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.'
4 And I heard how many had been sealed: a hundred and forty-four thousand, out of all the tribes of Israel.
9 After that I saw that there ...

Reading 1, Wisdom 11:22-12:1
22 The whole world, for you, can no more than tip a balance, like a drop of morning dew falling on the ground.
23 Yet you are merciful to all, because you are almighty, you overlook people's sins, so that they can repent.
24 Yes, you love everything that exists, and nothing that you have made disgusts you, since, if you had hated something, you would not have made it.
25 And how could a thing subsist, had you not willed it? Or how be preserved, if not called ...
