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

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Revelation 14.1-3, 4b-5

I, John, saw, and beheld the Lamb standing on Mount Zion,
and with him a number, one hundred forty-four thousand,
having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.
I heard a sound from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of a great thunder.
The sound which I heard was like that of harpists playing on their harps.
They sing a new hymn before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders.
No one could learn the song except the one hundred forty-four thousand,
those who had been redeemed from the earth.
These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever he goes.
These were redeemed by Jesus from among humans, the first fruits to God and to the Lamb.
In their mouth was found no lie, for they are blameless.

Responsorial - Psalm 24.1bc-2, 3-4ab, 5-6 Resp. 6

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
the world and its inhabitants.
For he founded it upon the seas;
and upon the rivers made it firm.

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

Who shall ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
He who, with innocent hands and a clean of heart,
has not lifted up his soul to useless things.

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord,
and righteousness from God his Savior.
This is the nature of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

Gospel – Luke 21.1-4

And looking on, Jesus saw the rich putting their offerings into the treasury,
and he saw one poor widow putting two pennies in there.
So he said, “Truly I say to you, that the widow-beggar has put in more than all these.
For all these have put in an offering from their abundance
but she, from her lack, has put in all which she had for living.”
