Daily Reading for Saturday September 24, 2016

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 90:3-4, 5-6, 12-13, 14, 17
Gospel, Luke 9:43-45

Reading 1, Ecclesiastes 11:9--12:8

9 Do not wrangle about something that does not concern you, do not interfere in the quarrels of sinners.

10 My child, do not take on a great amount of business; if you multiply your interests, you are bound to suffer for it; hurry as fast as you can, yet you will never arrive, nor will you escape by running away.

1 If you mean to do a kindness, choose the right person, then your good deeds will not be wasted.

2 Do good to someone devout, and you will be rewarded, if not by that person, then certainly by the Most High.

3 No good will come to one who persists in evil, or who refuses to give alms.

4 Give to the devout, do not go to the help of a sinner.

5 Do good to the humble, give nothing to the godless. Refuse him bread, do not give him any, it might make him stronger than you are; then you would be repaid evil twice over for all the good you had done him.

6 For the Most High himself detests sinners, and will repay the wicked with what they deserve.

7 Give to the good, and do not go to the help of a sinner.

8 In prosperity you cannot always tell a true friend, but in adversity you cannot mistake an enemy.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 90:3-4, 5-6, 12-13, 14, 17

3 You bring human beings to the dust, by saying, 'Return, children of Adam.'

4 A thousand years are to you like a yesterday which has passed, like a watch of the night.

5 You flood them with sleep -- in the morning they will be like growing grass:

6 in the morning it is blossoming and growing, by evening it is withered and dry.

12 Teach us to count up the days that are ours, and we shall come to the heart of wisdom.

13 Come back, Yahweh! How long must we wait? Take pity on your servants.

14 Each morning fill us with your faithful love, we shall sing and be happy all our days;

17 May the sweetness of the Lord be upon us, to confirm the work we have done!


Gospel, Luke 9:43-45

43 and everyone was awestruck by the greatness of God. But while everyone was full of admiration for all he did, he said to his disciples,

44 'For your part, you must have these words constantly in mind: The Son of man is going to be delivered into the power of men.'

45 But they did not understand what he said; it was hidden from them so that they should not see the meaning of it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.
