    Romans 5:12, 15, 17-19, 20-21
    12 Therefore as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned --
    15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift in the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.
    17 If, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
    18 Then as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man's act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for all men.
    19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man's obedience many will be made righteous.
    20 Law came in, to increase the trespass; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
    21 so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 40:7-10, 17
    6 Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire; but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required.
    7 Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;
    8 I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart."
    9 I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD.
    16 But may all who seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; may those who love thy salvation say continually, "Great is the LORD!"

  • Gospel

    Luke 12:35-38
    35 "Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning,
    36 and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the marriage feast, so that they may open to him at once when he comes and knocks.
    37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them.
    38 If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those servants!

    2 Corinthians 4:7-15
    7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, to show that the transcendent power belongs to God and not to us.
    8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
    9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
    10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
    11 For while we live we are always being given up to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
    12 So death is at work in us, but life in you.
    13 Since we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, "I believed, and so I spoke," we too believe, and so we speak,
    14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence.
    15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 126:1-6
    1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.
    2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
    3 The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad.
    4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb!
    5 May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy!
    6 He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 28:16-20
    16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.
    17 And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted.
    18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
    19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
    20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."
