Daily Gospel Reading for October 20, 2021 – Wednesday in the Twenty-Ninth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 20th of October, 2021 is Wednesday in the Twenty-Ninth Week of Ordinary Time. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar of the Year 2021.

Reading 1: ROM 6:12-18

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

Therefore don’t let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.

Also, do not present your members to sin as instruments of unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

For sin will not have dominion over you, for you are not under law, but under grace.

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be!

Don’t you know that when you present yourselves as servants and obey someone, you are the servants of whomever you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?

But thanks be to God that, whereas you were bondservants of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were delivered.

Being made free from sin, you became bondservants of righteousness.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 124:1-3, 4-6, 7-8

Response: Our help is in Yahweh’s name.

If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, let Israel now say, if it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, when men rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us.

R: Our help is in Yahweh’s name.

Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul.

Then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.

Blessed be Yahweh, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.

R: Our help is in Yahweh’s name.

Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

Our help is in Yahweh’s name, who made heaven and earth.

R: Our help is in Yahweh’s name.

Gospel of the Day: LK 12:39-48

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

“But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what hour the thief was coming, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.

Therefore be ready also, for the Son of Man is coming in an hour that you don’t expect him.”

Peter said to him, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everybody?”

The Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his lord will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the right times?

Blessed is that servant whom his lord will find doing so when he comes.

Truly I tell you that he will set him over all that he has.

But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My lord delays his coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and to be drunken, then the lord of that servant will come in a day when he isn’t expecting him and in an hour that he doesn’t know, and will cut him in two, and place his portion with the unfaithful.

That servant who knew his lord’s will, and didn’t prepare nor do what he wanted, will be beaten with many stripes, but he who didn’t know, and did things worthy of stripes, will be beaten with few stripes. To whomever much is given, of him will much be required; and to whom much was entrusted, of him more will be asked.”
