  • First Reading: Deuteronomy 30:15-20

     15 . Consider what I have set forth in your sight this day, life and good, or, on the opposite side, death and evil,
    16 . so that you may love the Lord your God, and walk in his ways, and keep his commandments and ceremonies and judgments, and so that you may live, and he may multiply you and bless you in the land, which you shall enter in order to possess.
    17 . But if your heart will have been turned aside, so that you are not willing to listen, and, having been deceived by error, you adore strange gods and serve them,
    18 . then I predict to you this day that you will perish, and you will remain for only a short time in the land, for which you shall cross the Jordan, and which you shall enter in order to possess.
    19 . I call heaven and earth as witnesses this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore, choose life, so that both you and your offspring may live,
    20 . and so that you may love the Lord your God, and obey his voice, and cling to him, (for he is your life and the length of your days) and so that you may live in the land, about which the Lord swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, that he would give it to them.”

  • Psalm: Psalms 1:1-4,6

    1 . Blessed is the man who has not followed the counsel of the impious, and has not remained in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the chair of pestilence.
    2 . But his will is with the law of the Lord, and he will meditate on his law, day and night.
    3 . And he will be like a tree that has been planted beside running waters, which will provide its fruit in its time, and its leaf will not fall away, and all things whatsoever that he does will prosper.
    4 . Not so the impious, not so. For they are like the dust that the wind casts along the face of the earth.
    6 . For the Lord knows the way of the just. And the path of the impious will pass away.

  • Gospel: Luke 9:22-25

    22 . saying, “For the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and the leaders of the priests and the scribes, and be killed, and on the third day rise again.”
    23 . Then he said to everyone: “If anyone is willing to come after me: let him deny himself, and take up his cross every day, and follow me.
    24 . For whoever will have saved his life, will lose it. Yet whoever will have lost his life for my sake, will save it.
    25 . For how does it benefit a man, if he were to gain the whole world, yet lose himself, or cause himself harm?
