Reading 1, Ezekiel 37:12-14
13 And you will know that I am Yahweh, when I open your graves and raise you from your graves, my people,
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 130:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8
1 [Song of Ascents] From the depths I call to you, Yahweh:
2 Lord, hear my cry. Listen attentively to the sound of my pleading!
3 If you kept a record of our sins, Lord, who could stand their ground?
4 But with you is forgiveness, that you may be revered.
5 I rely, my whole being relies, Yahweh, on your promise.
6 My whole being hopes in the Lord, more than watchmen for daybreak; more than watchmen for daybreak
8 and he will ransom Israel from all its sins.
Gospel, John 11:1-45
3 The sisters sent this message to Jesus, 'Lord, the man you love is ill.'
5 Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus,
6 yet when he heard that he was ill he stayed where he was for two more days
7 before saying to the disciples, 'Let us go back to Judaea.'
8 The disciples said, 'Rabbi, it is not long since the Jews were trying to stone you; are you going back there again?'
9 Jesus replied: Are there not twelve hours in the day? No one who walks in the daytime stumbles, having the light of this world to see by;
10 anyone who walks around at night stumbles, having no light as a guide.
11 He said that and then added, 'Our friend Lazarus is at rest; I am going to wake him.'
12 The disciples said to him, 'Lord, if he is at rest he will be saved.'
13 Jesus was speaking of the death of Lazarus, but they thought that by 'rest' he meant 'sleep';
14 so Jesus put it plainly, 'Lazarus is dead;
15 and for your sake I am glad I was not there because now you will believe. But let us go to him.'
16 Then Thomas -- known as the Twin -- said to the other disciples, 'Let us also go to die with him.'
18 Bethany is only about two miles from Jerusalem,
21 Martha said to Jesus, 'Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died,
23 Jesus said to her, 'Your brother will rise again.'
24 Martha said, 'I know he will rise again at the resurrection on the last day.'
26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?
27 'Yes, Lord,' she said, 'I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who was to come into this world.'
28 When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in a low voice, 'The Master is here and wants to see you.'
29 Hearing this, Mary got up quickly and went to him.
30 Jesus had not yet come into the village; he was still at the place where Martha had met him.
32 Mary went to Jesus, and as soon as she saw him she threw herself at his feet, saying, 'Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.'
34 'Where have you put him?' They said, 'Lord, come and see.'
35 Jesus wept;
36 and the Jews said, 'See how much he loved him!'
37 But there were some who remarked, 'He opened the eyes of the blind man. Could he not have prevented this man's death?'
38 Sighing again, Jesus reached the tomb: it was a cave with a stone to close the opening.
39 Jesus said, 'Take the stone away.' Martha, the dead man's sister, said to him, 'Lord, by now he will smell; this is the fourth day since he died.'
41 So they took the stone away. Then Jesus lifted up his eyes and said: Father, I thank you for hearing my prayer.
42 I myself knew that you hear me always, but I speak for the sake of all these who are standing around me, so that they may believe it was you who sent me.
43 When he had said this, he cried in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come out!'
45 Many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what he did, believed in him,
Reading 2, Romans 8:8-11
8 and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God.
11 and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has made his home in you, then he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you.
