Tuesday 13 October 2020 Tuesday of week 28 in Ordinary Time  or Saint Edward the Confessor, King  Liturgical Colour: Green.


Entrance Antiphon:
Ps 129: 3-4

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand? But with you is found forgiveness, O God of Israel.


Collect:

May your grace, O Lord, we pray, at all times go before us and follow after and make us always determined to carry out good works. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.


First Reading:
Galatians 5:1-6

It is faith, not the Law, that justifies us

When Christ freed us, he meant us to remain free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery. It is I, Paul, who tell you this: if you allow yourselves to be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you at all. With all solemnity I repeat my warning: Everyone who accepts circumcision is obliged to keep the whole Law. But if you do look to the Law to make you justified, then you have separated yourselves from Christ, and have fallen from grace. Christians are told by the Spirit to look to faith for those rewards that righteousness hopes for, since in Christ Jesus whether you are circumcised or not makes no difference – what matters is faith that makes its power felt through love.


Responsorial Psalm:
Psalm 118(119):41,43-45,47-48

Lord, let your love come upon me.

Lord, let your love come upon me.
the saving help of your promise.
Do not take the word of truth from my mouth
for I trust in your decrees.

Lord, let your love come upon me.

I shall always keep your law
for ever and ever.
I shall walk in the path of freedom
for I seek your precepts.

Lord, let your love come upon me.

Your commands have been my delight;
these I have loved.
I will worship your commands and love them
and ponder your statutes.

Lord, let your love come upon me.


Gospel Acclamation:
Ps118:135

Alleluia, alleluia!
Let your face shine on your servant, and teach me your decrees.
Alleluia!

Or:
Hebrews 4:12

Alleluia, alleluia!
The word of God is something alive and active: it can judge secret emotions and thoughts.
Alleluia!


Gospel:
Luke 11:37-41

Give thanks for what you have and it will all be clean

Jesus had just finished speaking when a Pharisee invited him to dine at his house. He went in and sat down at the table. The Pharisee saw this and was surprised that he had not first washed before the meal. But the Lord said to him, ‘Oh, you Pharisees! You clean the outside of cup and plate, while inside yourselves you are filled with extortion and wickedness. Fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside too? Instead, give alms from what you have and then indeed everything will be clean for you.’


Prayer over the Offerings:

Accept, O Lord, the prayers of your faithful with the sacrificial offerings, that, through these acts of devotedness, we may pass over to the glory of heaven. Through Christ our Lord.


Communion Antiphon:
Cf. Ps 33: 11

The rich suffer want and go hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no blessing.

Or:
1 John 3: 2

When the Lord appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.


Prayer after Communion:

We entreat your majesty most humbly, O Lord, that, as you feed us with the nourishment which comes from the most holy Body and Blood of your Son, so you may make us sharers of his divine nature. Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
