Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time (B)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Daniel 12.1-3

In those days, I, Daniel, heard this word of the Lord:
“At that time Michael, the great prince who guards the children of your people, shall arise,
and there shall be a time of trouble,
such as never was since there was a nation until that time,
and at that time your people shall be delivered,
everyone who shall be found written in the book.

Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake,
some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the sky,
and those who turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.

Responsorial – Psalm 16.5, 8, 9-10, 11 Resp. 1

R. O Lord, you are my inheritance.

The Lord assigned my portion and my cup.
You made my lot secure.
I have set the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

R. O Lord, you are my inheritance.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my tongue rejoices.
My body shall also dwell in safety.
For you will not leave my soul in Sheol,
nor will you allow your holy one to see corruption.

R. O Lord, you are my inheritance.

You will show me the path of life.
In your presence is fullness of joy.
In your right hand there are delights forevermore.

R. O Lord, you are my inheritance.

Reading 2 – Hebrews 10.11-14, 18

Brothers and sisters:
Every priest stands day by day serving
and often offering the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins,
but this one, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever,
sat down at the right hand of God.
From that time waiting until his enemies are made the footstool of his feet,
for by one offering he has forever perfected those who are being sanctified.
Now where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Gospel – Mark 13.24-32

Jesus said to his disciples:
In those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light,
the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.
Then they will see the Son of Human coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Then he will send out his angels, and will gather together his chosen ones from the four winds,
from the ends of the earth to the ends of the sky.

Now from the fig tree, learn this parable:
when the branch has become tender, and produces its leaves, you know that the summer is near,
even so, when you see these things coming to pass, know that it is near, at the gates.
Amen I say to you, this kind will not pass away until all these things happen.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
But of that day or that hour no one knows,
not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
