Reading 1: 1 KGS 19:16B, 19-21

The first reading from the Book of Kings.

“And anoint Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah to be prophet in your place.”

So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth. Elijah went over to him and put his mantle on him.

Elisha left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, “Let me please kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” He said to him, “Go back again; for what have I done to you?”

He returned from following him, and took the yoke of oxen, killed them, and boiled their meat with the oxen’s equipment, and gave to the people; and they ate. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and served him.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 16:1-2 and 5, 7-8, 9-10, 11

Response: Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup.

Preserve me, God, for I take refuge in you.

My soul, you have said to Yahweh, “You are my Lord. Apart from you I have no good thing.”

Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup. You made my lot secure.

R: Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup.

I will bless Yahweh, who has given me counsel. Yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons.

I have set Yahweh always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

R: Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my tongue rejoices. My body shall also dwell in safety.

For you will not leave my soul in Sheol, neither will you allow your holy one to see corruption.

R: Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup.

You will show me the path of life. In your presence is fullness of joy. In your right hand there are pleasures forever more.

R: Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup.

Reading 2: GAL 5:1, 13-18

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians.

Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don’t use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants to one another.

For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

But if you bite and devour one another, be careful that you don’t consume one another.

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh.

For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire.

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Gospel of the Day: LK 9:51-62

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

It came to pass, when the days were near that he should be taken up, he intently set his face to go to Jerusalem and sent messengers before his face. They went and entered into a village of the Samaritans, so as to prepare for him.

They didn’t receive him, because he was traveling with his face set toward Jerusalem.

When his disciples, James and John, saw this, they said, “Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from the sky and destroy them, just as Elijah did?”

But he turned and rebuked them, “You don’t know of what kind of spirit you are.

For the Son of Man didn’t come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” They went to another village.

As they went on the way, a certain man said to him, “I want to follow you wherever you go, Lord.”

Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

He said to another, “Follow me!” But he said, “Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.”

But Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead, but you go and announce God’s Kingdom.”

Another also said, “I want to follow you, Lord, but first allow me to say goodbye to those who are at my house.”

But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for God’s Kingdom.”
