  • First Reading: Jeremiah 14: 17-22

    17 And thou shalt speak this word to them: Let my eyes shed down tears night and day, and let them not cease, because the virgin daughter of my people is afflicted with a great affliction, with an exceeding grievous evil.
    18 If I go forth into the fields, behold the slain with the sword: and if I enter into the city, behold them that are consumed with famine. The prophet also and the priest are gone into a land which they knew not.
    19 Hast thou utterly cast away Juda, or hath thy soul abhorred Sion? why then hast thou struck us, so that there is no healing for us? we have looked for peace, and there is no good: and for the time of healing, and behold trouble.
    20 We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness, the iniquities of our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
    21 Give us not to be a reproach, for thy name' s sake, and do not disgrace in us the throne of thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.
    22 Are there any among the graven things of the Gentiles that can send rain? or can the heavens give showers? art not thou the Lord our God, whom we have looked for? for thou hast made all these things. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 79: 8, 9, 11, 13

    8 Remember not our former iniquities: let thy mercies speedily prevent us, for we are become exceeding poor.

    9 Help us, O God, our saviour: and for the glory of thy name, O Lord, deliver us: and forgive us our sins for thy name' s sake:

    11 Let the sighing of the prisoners come in before thee. According to the greatness of thy arm, take possession of the children of them that have been put to death.

    13 But we thy people, and the sheep of thy pasture, will give thanks to thee for ever. We will shew forth thy praise, unto generation and generation. 

  • 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.
