Daily Gospel Reading for October 23, 2021 – Saturday in the Twenty-Ninth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 23rd of October, 2021 is Saturday in the Twenty-Ninth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2021 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: ROM 8:1-11

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

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.

For what the law couldn’t do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace; because the mind of the flesh is hostile toward God, for it is not subject to God’s law, neither indeed can it be.

Those who are in the flesh can’t please God.

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.

If Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness.

But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 24:1-2, 3-4AB, 5-6

Response: This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek your face-even Jacob.

The earth is Yahweh’s, with its fullness; the world, and those who dwell in it.

For he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the floods.

R: This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek your face-even Jacob.

Who may ascend to Yahweh’s hill? Who may stand in his holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood, and has not sworn deceitfully.

R: This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek your face-even Jacob.

He shall receive a blessing from Yahweh, righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek your face-even Jacob.

R: This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek your face-even Jacob.

Gospel of the Day: LK 13:1-9

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

Now there were some present at the same time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.

Jesus answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered such things?

I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all perish in the same way.

Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them-do you think that they were worse offenders than all the men who dwell in Jerusalem?

I tell you, no, but, unless you repent, you will all perish in the same way.”

He spoke this parable. “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none.

He said to the vine dresser, ‘Behold, these three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and found none. Cut it down! Why does it waste the soil?’

He answered, ‘Lord, leave it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it.

If it bears fruit, fine; but if not, after that,you can cut it down.’_”
