9th. August 2020

Nineteenth Sunday of the Year

First Reading:

A reading from the First Book of Kings:

When Elijah reached Horeb, the mountain of God, he went into the cave and spent the night in it. Then he was told, ‘Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord.’ Then the Lord himself went by. There came a mighty wind, so strong it tore the mountains and shattered the rocks before the Lord. But the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind came an earthquake. But the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire. But the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there came the sound of a gentle breeze. And when Elijah heard this, he covered his face with his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm

Response:       Let us see, O Lord, your mercy, and give us your saving help.

I will hear what the Lord God has to say, a voice that speaks of peace.

His help is near for those who fear him  and his glory will dwell in our land.           R.

Mercy and faithfulness have met;  justice and peace have embraced.

Faithfulness shall spring from the earth  and justice look down from heaven.           R.

The Lord will make us prosper  and our earth shall yield its fruit.

Justice shall march before him  and peace shall follow his steps.                              R.

Second Reading

A Reading from St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans.

What I want to say now is no pretence; I say it in union with Christ – it is the truth – my conscience in union with the Holy Spirit assures me of it too. What I want to say is this: my sorrow is so great, my mental anguish so endless, I would willingly be condemned and be cut off from Christ if it could help my brothers of Israel, my own flesh and blood. They were adopted as sons, they were given the glory and the covenants; the Law and the ritual were drawn up for them, and the promises were made to them. They are descended from the patriarchs and from their flesh and blood came Christ who is above all, God for ever blessed! Amen.

The Word of the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation:

Alleluia, alleluia!

My soul is waiting for the Lord, I count on his word.
