Monday of the Twenty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time (II)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – 1 Corinthians 11.17-26, 33

Brothers and sisters:
In giving you this command, I do not praise you,
for you come together not for the better but for the worse.
First of all, when you come together in the Church,
I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it.
For there must be factions among you,
that those who are approved may be revealed among you.
When therefore you assemble yourselves together,
it is not the Lord’s supper that you eat.
For in your eating each one takes his own supper first:
one goes hungry while another is drunken.
Do you not have houses to eat and drink in?
Or do you despise the Church of God,
and put to shame those who do not have?
What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I do not praise you.

I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you:
that the Lord Jesus, on the night in which he was betrayed, took bread.
When he had given thanks, he broke it and said,
“This is my body, which is for you. Do this in memory of me.”
In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in memory of me.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup,
you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters,
when you come together to eat, wait for one another.

Responsorial – Psalm 40.7-8a, 8b-9, 10, 17 Resp. 1 Corinthians 11:26b

R. Proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire.
You have opened my ears.
You have not required burnt offering and sin offering.
Then I said, “Behold, I have come.

R. Proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

It is written about me in the scroll:
“I delight to do your will, my God.
Yes, your law is within my heart.”

R. Proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

I have proclaimed glad news of righteousness in the vast assembly.
Behold, you know I will not seal my lips, O Lord.

R. Proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

Let all those who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you.
May those who love your salvation
say continually, “Let the Lord be exalted!”

R. Proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

Gospel – Luke 7.1-10

After Jesus had finished speaking in the hearing of the people,
he entered into Capernaum.
A certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him,
was sick and at the point of death.
When he heard about Jesus,
he sent to him elders of the Jews,
asking him to come and save his servant.
When they came to Jesus, they begged him earnestly, saying,
“He is worthy for you to do this for him,
for he loves our nation, and he built our synagogue for us.”
Jesus went with them.

When he was not far from the house,
the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him,
“Lord, do not trouble yourself,
for I am not worthy for you to come under my roof.
Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to you,
but say the word, and my servant will be healed.
For I also am a man placed under authority,
having under myself soldiers.
I tell this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes;
and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him,
and turned and said to the crowd who followed him,
“I tell you, I have not found such great faith, no, not in Israel.”
Those who were sent, returning to the house,
found that the servant who had been sick was well.
