  • First Reading: Exodus 32:15-24, 30-34

    15 And Moses returned from the mount, carrying the two tables of the testimony in his hand, written on both sides,
    16 And made by the work of God: the writing also of God was graven in the tables.
    17 And Josue hearing the noise of the people shouting, said to Moses: The noise of battle is heard in the camp.
    18 But he answered: It is not the cry of men encouraging to fight, nor the shout of men compelling to flee: but I hear the voice of singers.
    19 And when he came nigh to the camp, he saw the calf, and the dances: and being very angry, he threw the tables out of his hand, and broke them at the foot of the mount:
    20 And laying hold of the calf which they had made, he burnt it, and beat it to powder, which he strowed into water, and gave thereof to the children of Israel to drink.
    21 And he said to Aaron: What has this people done to thee, that thou shouldst bring upon them a most heinous sin?
    22 And he answered him: Let not my lord be offended: for thou knowest this people, that they are prone to evil.
    23 They said to me: Make us gods, that may go before us: for as to this Moses, who brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is befallen him.
    24 And I said to them: Which of you hath any gold? and they took and brought it to me: and I cast it into the fire, and this calf came out.
    30 And when the next day was come, Moses spoke to the people: You have sinned a very great sin: I will go up to the Lord, if by any means I may be able to entreat him for your crime.
    31 And returning to the Lord, he said: I beseech thee: this people hath sinned a heinous sin, and they have made to themselves gods of gold: either forgive them this trespass,
    32 Or if thou do not, strike me out of the book that thou hast written.
    33 And the Lord answered him: He that hath sinned against me, him will I strike out of my book:
    34 But go thou, and lead this people whither I have told thee: my angel shall go before thee. And I in the day of revenge will visit this sin also of theirs.

  • Psalm: Psalms 106:19-20, 21-22, 23

    19 They made also a calf in Horeb: and they adored the graven thing.
    20 And they changed their glory into the likeness of a calf that eateth grass.
    21 They forgot God, who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,
    22 Wondrous works in the land of Cham: terrible things in the Red Sea.
    23 And he said that he would destroy them: had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach: To turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them. 

  • Gospel: John 11:19-27

    19 And many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
    20 Martha therefore, as soon as she heard that Jesus had come, went to meet him: but Mary sat at home.
    21 Martha therefore said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
    22 But now also I know that whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
    23 Jesus saith to her: Thy brother shall rise again.
    24 Martha saith to him: I know that he shall rise again, in the resurrection at the last day.
    25 Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live:
    26 And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever. Believest thou this?
    27 She saith to him: Yea, Lord, I have believed that thou art Christ the Son of the living God, who art come into this world.
