  • First Reading

    Isaiah 6:1-2, 3-8
    1 In the year that King Uzzi'ah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.
    2 Above him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.
    3 And one called to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory."
    4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.
    5 And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!"
    6 Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having in his hand a burning coal which he had taken with tongs from the altar.
    7 And he touched my mouth, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven."
    8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 138:1-5, 7-8
    1 I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing thy praise;
    2 I bow down toward thy holy temple and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness; for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word.
    3 On the day I called, thou didst answer me, my strength of soul thou didst increase.
    4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, for they have heard the words of thy mouth;
    5 and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD, for great is the glory of the LORD.
    7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou dost preserve my life; thou dost stretch out thy hand against the wrath of my enemies, and thy right hand delivers me.
    8 The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me; thy steadfast love, O LORD, endures for ever. Do not forsake the work of thy hands.

  • Second Reading

    1 Corinthians 15:1-11
    1 Now I would remind you, brethren, in what terms I preached to you the gospel, which you received, in which you stand,
    2 by which you are saved, if you hold it fast -- unless you believed in vain.
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures,
    4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures,
    5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
    6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep.
    7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.
    8 Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.
    9 For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
    10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God which is with me.
    11 Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

  • Gospel

    Luke 5:1-11
    1 While the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennes'aret.
    2 And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets.
    3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
    4 And when he had ceased speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch."
    5 And Simon answered, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets."
    6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a great shoal of fish; and as their nets were breaking,
    7 they beckoned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
    8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord."
    9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the catch of fish which they had taken;
    10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zeb'edee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men."
    11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.
