USCCB Daily Readings from the New American Bible Revised Edition
  1. Monday of the Thirty-third Week in Ordinary Time

    Reading 1 Rv 1:1-4; 2:1-5

    The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him,
    to show his servants what must happen soon.
    He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
    who gives witness to the word of God
    and to the testimony of Jesus Christ by reporting what he saw.
    Blessed is the one who reads aloud
    and blessed are those who listen to this prophetic message
    and heed what is written in it, for the appointed time is near.

    John, to the seven churches in Asia: grace to you and peace
    from him who is and who was and who is to come,
    and from the seven spirits before his throne.

    I heard the Lord saying to me:
    "To the angel of the Church in Ephesus, write this:

    "'The one who holds the seven stars in his right hand
    and walks in the midst of the seven gold lampstands says this:
    "I know your works, your labor, and your endurance,
    and that you cannot tolerate the wicked;
    you have tested those who call themselves Apostles but are not,
    and discovered that they are impostors.
    Moreover, you have endurance and have suffered for my name,
    and you have not grown weary.
    Yet I hold this against you:
    you have lost the love you had at first.
    Realize how far you have fallen.
    Repent, and do the works you did at first.
    Otherwise, I will come to you
    and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent."'"

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6

    R. (Rev. 2:17) Those who are victorious I will feed from the tree of life.
    Blessed the man who follows not
    the counsel of the wicked
    Nor walks in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the company of the insolent,
    But delights in the law of the LORD
    and meditates on his law day and night.
    R. Those who are victorious I will feed from the tree of life.
    He is like a tree
    planted near running water,
    That yields its fruit in due season,
    and whose leaves never fade.
    Whatever he does, prospers.
    R. Those who are victorious I will feed from the tree of life.
    Not so the wicked, not so;
    they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
    For the LORD watches over the way of the just,
    but the way of the wicked vanishes.
    R. Those who are victorious I will feed from the tree of life.

    Alleluia Jn 8:12

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
    whoever follows me will have the light of life.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Lk 18:35-43

    As Jesus approached Jericho
    a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging,
    and hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what was happening.
    They told him,
    "Jesus of Nazareth is passing by."
    He shouted, "Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!"
    The people walking in front rebuked him,
    telling him to be silent,
    but he kept calling out all the more,
    "Son of David, have pity on me!"
    Then Jesus stopped and ordered that he be brought to him;
    and when he came near, Jesus asked him,
    "What do you want me to do for you?"
    He replied, "Lord, please let me see."
    Jesus told him, "Have sight; your faith has saved you."
    He immediately received his sight
    and followed him, giving glory to God.
    When they saw this, all the people gave praise to God.

  2. Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Reading 1 Dn 12:1-3

    In those days, I Daniel,
    heard this word of the Lord:
    "At that time there shall arise
    Michael, the great prince,
    guardian of your people;
    it shall be a time unsurpassed in distress
    since nations began until that time.
    At that time your people shall escape,
    everyone who is found written in the book.

    "Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake;
    some shall live forever,
    others shall be an everlasting horror and disgrace.

    "But the wise shall shine brightly
    like the splendor of the firmament,
    and those who lead the many to justice
    shall be like the stars forever."

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 16:5, 8, 9-10, 11

    R. (1) You are my inheritance, O Lord!
    O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
    you it is who hold fast my lot.
    I set the LORD ever before me;
    with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
    R. You are my inheritance, O Lord!
    Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
    my body, too, abides in confidence;
    because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
    nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.
    R. You are my inheritance, O Lord!
    You will show me the path to life,
    fullness of joys in your presence,
    the delights at your right hand forever.
    R. You are my inheritance, O Lord!

    Reading 2 Heb 10:11-14, 18

    Brothers and sisters:
    Every priest stands daily at his ministry,
    offering frequently those same sacrifices
    that can never take away sins.
    But this one offered one sacrifice for sins,
    and took his seat forever at the right hand of God;
    now he waits until his enemies are made his footstool.
    For by one offering
    he has made perfect forever those who are being consecrated.

    Where there is forgiveness of these,
    there is no longer offering for sin.

    Alleluia Lk 21:36

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Be vigilant at all times
    and pray that you have the strength to stand before the Son of Man.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Mk 13:24-32

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "In those days after that tribulation
    the sun will be darkened,
    and the moon will not give its light,
    and the stars will be falling from the sky,
    and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

    "And then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in the clouds'
    with great power and glory,
    and then he will send out the angels
    and gather his elect from the four winds,
    from the end of the earth to the end of the sky.

    "Learn a lesson from the fig tree.
    When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves,
    you know that summer is near.
    In the same way, when you see these things happening,
    know that he is near, at the gates.
    Amen, I say to you,
    this generation will not pass away
    until all these things have taken place.
    Heaven and earth will pass away,
    but my words will not pass away.

    "But of that day or hour, no one knows,
    neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
