Friday of the Twenty-fourth week in Ordinary Time
St. Thomas of Villanova - Bishop (1488-1555)
St. Joseph of Cupertino (1603-1663)
First Letter to the Corinthians 15,12-20.
Brothers and sisters : If Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some among you say there is no resurrection of the dead?
If there is no resurrection of the dead, then neither has Christ been raised.
And if Christ has not been raised, then empty (too) is our preaching; empty, too, your faith.
Then we are also false witnesses to God, because we testified against God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if in fact the dead are not raised.
For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised,
and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins.
Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are the most pitiable people of all.
But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
Hear, O LORD, a just suit;
attend to my outcry;
hearken to my prayer from lips without deceit.
I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;
incline your ear to me; hear my word.
Show your wondrous mercies,
O savior of those who flee from their foes
Hide me in the shadow of your wings.
I in justice shall behold your face;
on waking I shall be content in your presence.
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 8,1-3.
Jesus journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God. Accompanying him were the Twelve
and some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,
Joanna, the wife of Herod's steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their resources.
