Reading 1, Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

1 Children, listen to me for I am your father: do what I tell you, and so be safe;

2 for the Lord honours the father above his children and upholds the rights of a mother over her sons.

3 Whoever respects a father expiates sins,

4 whoever honours a mother is like someone amassing a fortune.

5 Whoever respects a father will in turn be happy with children, the day he prays for help, he will be heard.

6 Long life comes to anyone who honours a father, whoever obeys the Lord makes a mother happy.

7 Such a one serves parents as well as the Lord.

8 Respect your father in deed as well as word, so that blessing may come on you from him;

9 since a father's blessing makes his children's house firm, while a mother's curse tears up its foundations.

10 Do not make a boast of disgrace overtaking your father, your father's disgrace reflects no honour on you;

11 for a person's own honour derives from the respect shown to his father, and a mother held in dishonour is a reproach to her children.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 144:1-2, 3-4

1 [Of David] Blessed be Yahweh, my rock, who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle,

2 my faithful love, my bastion, my citadel, my Saviour; I shelter behind him, my shield, he makes the peoples submit to me.

3 Yahweh, what is a human being for you to notice, a child of Adam for you to think about?

4 Human life, a mere puff of wind, days as fleeting as a shadow.


Gospel, Luke 9:18-22

18 Now it happened that he was praying alone, and his disciples came to him and he put this question to them, 'Who do the crowds say I am?'

19 And they answered, 'Some say John the Baptist; others Elijah; others again one of the ancient prophets come back to life.'

20 'But you,' he said to them, 'who do you say I am?' It was Peter who spoke up. 'The Christ of God,' he said.

21 But he gave them strict orders and charged them not to say this to anyone.

22 He said, 'The Son of man is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.'
