Daily Gospel Reading for July 31, 2022 – Eighteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 31st of July, 2022 is the Eighteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar of the Year 2022.

Reading 1: ECCL 1:2; 2:21-23

The first reading from Ecclesiastes or The Preacher.

“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”

For there is a man whose labor is with wisdom, with knowledge, and with skillfulness; yet he shall leave it for his portion to a man who has not labored for it. This also is vanity and a great evil.

For what does a man have of all his labor and of the striving of his heart, in which he labors under the sun?

For all his days are sorrows, and his travail is grief; yes, even in the night his heart takes no rest. This also is vanity.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 90:3-4, 5-6, 12-13, 14 and 17

Response: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

You turn man to destruction, saying, “Return, you children of men.”

For a thousand years in your sight are just like yesterday when it is past, like a watch in the night.

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

You sweep them away as they sleep. In the morning they sprout like new grass.

In the morning it sprouts and springs up. By evening, it is withered and dry.

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

So teach us to count our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Relent, Yahweh! How long? Have compassion on your servants!

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us. Establish the work of our hands for us. Yes, establish the work of our hands.

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

Reading 2: COL 3:1-5, 9-11

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

If then you were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God.

Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth.

For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

When Christ, our life, is revealed, then you will also be revealed with him in glory.

Put to death therefore your members which are on the earth: sexual immorality, uncleanness, depraved passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

Don’t lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his doings, and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his Creator, where there can’t be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondservant, or free person; but Christ is all, and in all.

Gospel of the Day: LK 12:13-21

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

One of the multitude said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”

But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or an arbitrator over you?”

He said to them, “Beware! Keep yourselves from covetousness, for a man’s life doesn’t consist of the abundance of the things which he possesses.”

He spoke a parable to them, saying, “The ground of a certain rich man produced abundantly.

He reasoned within himself, saying, ‘What will I do, because I don’t have room to store my crops?’

He said, ‘This is what I will do. I will pull down my barns, build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.

I will tell my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years. Take your ease, eat, drink, and be merry.”_’_”

“But God said to him, ‘You foolish one, tonight your soul is required of you. The things which you have prepared—whose will they be?’

So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
