Daily Gospel Reading for November 12, 2021, Friday – Memorial of Saint Josaphat, Bishop and Martyr Bible Verse

The 12th of November, 2021, Friday is the Memorial of Saint Josaphat, Bishop and Martyr. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2021 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: WIS 13:1-9

The first reading from the Wisdom of Solomon.

For truly all men who had no perception of God were foolish by nature, and didn’t gain power to know him who exists from the good things that are seen. They didn’t recognize the architect from his works.

But they thought that either fire, or wind, or swift air, or circling stars, or raging water, or luminaries of heaven were gods that rule the world.

If it was through delight in their beauty that they took them to be gods, let them know how much better their Sovereign Lord is than these, for the first author of beauty created them.

But if it was through astonishment at their power and influence, then let them understand from them how much more powerful he who formed them is.

For from the greatness of the beauty of created things, mankind forms the corresponding perception of their Maker.

But yet for these men there is but small blame, for they too perhaps go astray while they are seeking God and desiring to find him.

For they diligently search while living among his works, and they trust their sight that the things that they look at are beautiful.

But again even they are not to be excused.

For if they had power to know so much, that they should be able to explore the world, how is it that they didn’t find the Sovereign Lord sooner?

Responsorial Psalm: PS 19:1-2, 3-4AB

Response: The heavens declare the glory of God.

The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork.

Day after day they pour out speech, and night after night they display knowledge.

R: The heavens declare the glory of God.

There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.

Their voice has gone out through all the earth, their words to the end of the world.

R: The heavens declare the glory of God.

Gospel of the Day: LK 17:26-37

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

“As it was in the days of Noah, even so it will also be in the days of the Son of Man.

They ate, they drank, they married, and they were given in marriage until the day that Noah entered into the ship, and the flood came and destroyed them all.

Likewise, even as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and sulfur from the sky and destroyed them all.

It will be the same way in the day that the Son of Man is revealed.

In that day, he who will be on the housetop and his goods in the house, let him not go down to take them away. Let him who is in the field likewise not turn back.

Remember Lot’s wife!

Whoever seeks to save his life loses it, but whoever loses his life preserves it.

I tell you, in that night there will be two people in one bed. One will be taken and the other will be left.

There will be two grinding grain together. One will be taken and the other will be left.”

They, answering, asked him, “Where, Lord?” He said to them, “Where the body is, there the vultures will also be gathered together.”
