Daily Gospel Reading for October 15, 2021, Friday – Memorial of Saint Teresa of Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church Bible Verse

The 15th of October, 2021, Friday is the Memorial of Saint Teresa of Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2021 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: ROM 4:1-8

The first reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans.

What then will we say that Abraham, our forefather, has found according to the flesh?

For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not toward God.

For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

Now to him who works, the reward is not counted as grace, but as something owed.

But to him who doesn’t work, but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.

Even as David also pronounces blessing on the man to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:

“Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, whose sins are covered.

Blessed is the man whom the Lord will by no means charge with sin.”

Responsorial Psalm: PS 32:1-2, 5, 11

Response: You are my hiding place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will surround me with songs of deliverance.

Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man to whom Yahweh doesn’t impute iniquity, in whose spirit there is no deceit.

R: You are my hiding place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will surround me with songs of deliverance.

I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn’t hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

R: You are my hiding place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will surround me with songs of deliverance.

Be glad in Yahweh, and rejoice, you righteous! Shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart!

R: You are my hiding place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will surround me with songs of deliverance.

Gospel of the Day: LK 12:1-7

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

Meanwhile, when a multitude of many thousands had gathered together, so much so that they trampled on each other, he began to tell his disciples first of all, “Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.

Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness will be heard in the light. What you have spoken in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.”

“I tell you, my friends, don’t be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.”

“Aren’t five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.

But the very hairs of your head are all counted. Therefore don’t be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.”
