Readings at Mass Monday 1 November 2021

31st Week in Ordinary Time

All Saints – Solemnity 

Liturgical Colour: White.

First reading

Apocalypse 7:2-4,9-14

I, John, saw another angel rising where the sun rises, carrying the seal of the living God; he called in a powerful voice to the four angels whose duty was to devastate land and sea, ‘Wait before you do any damage on land or at sea or to the trees, until we have put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.’ Then I heard how many were sealed: a hundred and forty-four thousand, out of all the tribes of Israel.

    After that I saw a huge number, impossible to count, of people from every nation, race, tribe and language; they were standing in front of the throne and in front of the Lamb, dressed in white robes and holding palms in their hands. They shouted aloud, ‘Victory to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’ And all the angels who were standing in a circle round the throne, surrounding the elders and the four animals, prostrated themselves before the throne, and touched the ground with their foreheads, worshipping God with these words, ‘Amen. Praise and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and strength to our God for ever and ever. Amen.’

    One of the elders then spoke, and asked me, ‘Do you know who these people are, dressed in white robes, and where they have come from?’ I answered him, ‘You can tell me, my lord.’ Then he said, ‘These are the people who have been through the great persecution, and they have washed their robes white again in the blood of the Lamb.’

Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 23:1-6

Response: Such are the men who seek your face, O Lord.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness, the world and all its peoples. It is he who set it on the seas;   on the waters he made it firm.

Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord?   Who shall stand in his holy place? The man with clean hands and pure heart,   who desires not worthless things.

He shall receive blessings from the Lord   and reward from the God who saves him. Such are the men who seek him,   seek the face of the God of Jacob.

Second reading

1 John 3:1-3

Think of the love that the Father has lavished on us,   by letting us be called God’s children;   and that is what we are.  Because the world refused to acknowledge him,     therefore it does not acknowledge us. My dear people, we are already the children of God    but what we are to be in the future has not yet been revealed; all we know is, that when it is revealed    we shall be like him      because we shall see him as he really is. Surely everyone who entertains this hope     must purify himself, must try to be as pure as Christ.

Gospel Acclamation

Mt 11:28

Alleluia, alleluia!

Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened

and I will give you rest, says the Lord.

Alleluia!

Gospel

Matthew 5:1-12

Seeing the crowds, Jesus went up the hill. There he sat down and was joined by his disciples. Then he began to speak. This is what he taught them:  ‘How happy are the poor in spirit;    theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Happy the gentle:    they shall have the earth for their heritage. Happy those who mourn:     they shall be comforted. Happy those who hunger and thirst for what is right:     they shall be satisfied. Happy the merciful:     they shall have mercy shown them.

Happy the pure in heart:    they shall see God. Happy the peacemakers:   they shall be called sons of God. Happy those who are persecuted in the cause of right:     theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

‘Happy are you when people abuse you and persecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.’
