Daily Gospel Reading for October 22, 2022 – Saturday in the Twenty-Ninth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 22nd of October, 2022 is Saturday in the Twenty-Ninth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2022 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: EPH 4:7-16

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

But to each one of us, the grace was given according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

Therefore he says, “When he ascended on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to people.”

Now this, “He ascended”, what is it but that he also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?

He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.

He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, shepherds and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, to the work of serving, to the building up of the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, that we may no longer be children, tossed back and forth and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error; but speaking truth in love, we may grow up in all things into him who is the head, Christ, from whom all the body, being fitted and knit together through that which every joint supplies, according to the working in measure of each individual part, makes the body increase to the building up of itself in love.

Gospel of the Day: LK 13:1-9

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

Now there were some present at the same time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.

Jesus answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered such things?

I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all perish in the same way.

Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them-do you think that they were worse offenders than all the men who dwell in Jerusalem?

I tell you, no, but, unless you repent, you will all perish in the same way.”

He spoke this parable. “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none.

He said to the vine dresser, ‘Behold, these three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and found none. Cut it down! Why does it waste the soil?’

He answered, ‘Lord, leave it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it.

If it bears fruit, fine; but if not, after that,you can cut it down.’_”
