What profit has he who works in that in which he labors?

I have seen the burden which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in their hearts, yet so that man can’t find out the work that God has done from the beginning even to the end.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 144:1A and 2ABC, 3-4

Response: Blessed be Yahweh, my rock.

Blessed be Yahweh, my rock.

My loving kindness, my fortress, my high tower, my deliverer, my shield, and he in whom I take refuge.

R: Blessed be Yahweh, my rock.

Yahweh, what is man, that you care for him? Or the son of man, that you think of him?

Man is like a breath. His days are like a shadow that passes away.

Gospel of the Day: LK 9:18-22

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

As he was praying alone, the disciples were near him, and he asked them, “Who do the multitudes say that I am?”

They answered, “‘John the Baptizer,’ but others say, ‘Elijah,’ and others, that one of the old prophets has risen again.”

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”

But he warned them and commanded them to tell this to no one, saying, “The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.”
