USCCB Daily Readings from the New American Bible Revised Edition
  1. Memorial of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, Virgin

    Reading 1 Wis 6:1-11

    Hear, O kings, and understand;
    learn, you magistrates of the earth's expanse!
    Hearken, you who are in power over the multitude
    and lord it over throngs of peoples!
    Because authority was given you by the Lord
    and sovereignty by the Most High,
    who shall probe your works and scrutinize your counsels.
    Because, though you were ministers of his kingdom, you judged not rightly,
    and did not keep the law,
    nor walk according to the will of God,
    Terribly and swiftly shall he come against you,
    because judgment is stern for the exalted–
    For the lowly may be pardoned out of mercy
    but the mighty shall be mightily put to the test.
    For the Lord of all shows no partiality,
    nor does he fear greatness,
    Because he himself made the great as well as the small,
    and he provides for all alike;
    but for those in power a rigorous scrutiny impends.
    To you, therefore, O princes, are my words addressed
    that you may learn wisdom and that you may not sin.
    For those who keep the holy precepts hallowed shall be found holy,
    and those learned in them will have ready a response.
    Desire therefore my words;
    long for them and you shall be instructed.

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 82:3-4, 6-7

    R. (8a) Rise up, O God, bring judgment to the earth.
    Defend the lowly and the fatherless;
    render justice to the afflicted and the destitute.
    Rescue the lowly and the poor;
    from the hand of the wicked deliver them.
    R. Rise up, O God, bring judgment to the earth.
    I said: "You are gods,
    all of you sons of the Most High;
    yet like men you shall die,
    and fall like any prince."
    R. Rise up, O God, bring judgment to the earth.

    Alleluia 1 Thes 5:18

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    In all circumstances, give thanks,
    for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Lk 17:11-19

    As Jesus continued his journey to Jerusalem,
    he traveled through Samaria and Galilee.
    As he was entering a village, ten lepers met him.
    They stood at a distance from him and raised their voice, saying,
    "Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!"
    And when he saw them, he said,
    "Go show yourselves to the priests."
    As they were going they were cleansed.
    And one of them, realizing he had been healed,
    returned, glorifying God in a loud voice;
    and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him.
    He was a Samaritan.
    Jesus said in reply,
    "Ten were cleansed, were they not?
    Where are the other nine?
    Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?"
    Then he said to him, "Stand up and go;
    your faith has saved you."

  2. Memorial of Saint Josaphat, Bishop and Martyr

    Reading 1 Wis 2:23–3:9

    God formed man to be imperishable;
    the image of his own nature he made them.
    But by the envy of the Devil, death entered the world,
    and they who are in his possession experience it.

    But the souls of the just are in the hand of God,
    and no torment shall touch them.
    They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
    and their passing away was thought an affliction
    and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
    But they are in peace.
    For if before men, indeed, they be punished,
    yet is their hope full of immortality;
    Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
    because God tried them
    and found them worthy of himself.
    As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
    and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
    In the time of their visitation they shall shine,
    and shall dart about as sparks through stubble;
    They shall judge nations and rule over peoples,
    and the Lord shall be their King forever.
    Those who trust in him shall understand truth,
    and the faithful shall abide with him in love:
    Because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,
    and his care is with his elect.

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 34:2-3, 16-17, 18-19

    R.(2a) I will bless the Lord at all times.
    I will bless the LORD at all times;
    his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
    Let my soul glory in the LORD;
    the lowly will hear me and be glad.
    R. I will bless the Lord at all times.
    The LORD has eyes for the just,
    and ears for their cry.
    The LORD confronts the evildoers,
    to destroy remembrance of them from the earth.
    R. I will bless the Lord at all times.
    When the just cry out, the LORD hears them,
    and from all their distress he rescues them.
    The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
    and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
    R. I will bless the Lord at all times.

    Alleluia Jn 14:23

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Whoever loves me will keep my word,
    and my Father will love him,
    and we will come to him.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Lk 17:7-10

    Jesus said to the Apostles:
    "Who among you would say to your servant
    who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field,
    'Come here immediately and take your place at table'?
    Would he not rather say to him,
    'Prepare something for me to eat.
    Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink.
    You may eat and drink when I am finished'?
    Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded?
    So should it be with you.
    When you have done all you have been commanded, say,
    'We are unprofitable servants;
    we have done what we were obliged to do.'"
