Daily Gospel Reading for September 17, 2022 – Saturday in the Twenty-Fourth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 17th of September, 2022 is Saturday in the Twenty-Fourth Week 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: 1 COR 15:35-37, 42-49

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

But someone will say, “How are the dead raised?” and, “With what kind of body do they come?”

You foolish one, that which you yourself sow is not made alive unless it dies.

That which you sow, you don’t sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, maybe of wheat, or of some other kind.

So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown perishable; it is raised imperishable.

It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.

It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is also a spiritual body.

So also it is written, “The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

However, that which is spiritual isn’t first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual.

The first man is of the earth, made of dust. The second man is the Lord from heaven.

As is the one made of dust, such are those who are also made of dust; and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let’s also bear the image of the heavenly.

Responsorial Psalm PS 56:9C-11, 12-13

Response: That I may walk before God in the light of the living.

I know this: that God is for me.

In God, I will praise his word. In Yahweh, I will praise his word.

I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?

R: That I may walk before God in the light of the living.

Your vows are on me, God. I will give thank offerings to you.

For you have delivered my soul from death, and prevented my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.

R: That I may walk before God in the light of the living.

Gospel of the Day: LK 8:4-15

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

When a great multitude came together and people from every city were coming to him, he spoke by a parable:

“The farmer went out to sow his seed. As he sowed, some fell along the road, and it was trampled under foot, and the birds of the sky devoured it.

Other seed fell on the rock, and as soon as it grew, it withered away, because it had no moisture.

Other fell amid the thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it.

Other fell into the good ground and grew and produced one hundred times as much fruit.” As he said these things, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

Then his disciples asked him, “What does this parable mean?”

He said, “To you it is given to know the mysteries of God’s Kingdom, but to the rest it is given in parables, that ‘seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’_”

“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

Those along the road are those who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, that they may not believe and be saved.

Those on the rock are they who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; but these have no root. They believe for a while, then fall away in time of temptation.

What fell among the thorns, these are those who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life; and they bring no fruit to maturity.

Those in the good ground, these are those who with an honest and good heart, having heard the word, hold it tightly, and produce fruit with perseverance.”
