William Blake, Glad Day, 1795
Readings for Mass
First Reading: Romans 6:12-18
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 124:1-3, 4-6, 7-8
Gospel: Luke 12:39-48

Present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and present your members to God as instruments of righteousness (NRSV, Romans 6:13b).

Let us pray.

Father, may we rejoice in every moment because, even from the womb, and for many effectively celebrated in baptism, we are truly resurrected beings. We are called to share now, in this physical world, the gift of your divine life which, made are own, enables us to pass victoriously through death. May all of our actions bear witness to this resurrection, never surrendering to sin, but always going out to one another in loving service.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
