Readings for Mass
First Reading: Romans 4:13, 16-18
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 105:6-7, 8-9, 42-43
Gospel: Luke 12:8-12

'When they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you are to defend yourselves or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very hour what you ought to say (NRSV, Luke 12:11-12).’

Let us pray.

Father, You speak to us once and for all, at every moment, at the depth of our being, through the Word, in the Holy Spirit. So often because we are created beings, because of the historical situation in which we find oursleves, because of our common sinfulness and our own personal sins, we fail to hear well or even listen. You speak to us of everything that we need to know and do. May we always be sensitive to your Word spoken in the Holy Spirit that we may come to understand you, Father, more fully and open ourselves to further growth in the gift of your divine life.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen
