XXI Domingo Ordiario – 3 De Noviembre 2019

Primera lectura

Sab 11, 22–12, 2

Señor, delante de ti,
el mundo entero es como un grano de arena en la balanza,
como gota de rocío mañanero,
que cae sobre la tierra.

Te compadeces de todos,
y aunque puedes destruirlo todo,
aparentas no ver los pecados de los hombres,
para darles ocasión de arrepentirse.
Porque tú amas todo cuanto existe
y no aborreces nada de lo que has hecho;
pues si hubieras aborrecido alguna cosa,
no la habrías creado.

¿Y cómo podrían seguir existiendo las cosas,
si tú no lo quisieras?
¿Cómo habría podido conservarse algo hasta ahora,
si tú no lo hubieras llamado a la existencia?

Tú perdonas a todos,
porque todos son tuyos, Señor, que amas la vida,
porque tu espíritu inmortal, está en todos los seres.

Por eso a los que caen,
los vas corrigiendo poco a poco,
los reprendes y les traes a la memoria sus pecados,
para que se arrepientan de sus maldades
y crean en ti, Señor.


Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 144, 1-2.8-9. 10-11. 13cd-14

R. (cf. 1) Bendeciré al Señor eternamente.
Dios y rey mío, yo te alabaré,
bendeciré tu nombre siempre y para siempre.
Un día tras otro bendeciré tu nombre
y no cesará mi boca de alabarte.
R. Bendeciré al Señor eternamente.
El Señor es compasivo y misericordioso,
lento para enojarse y generoso para perdonar.
Bueno es el Señor para con todos
y su amor se extiende a todas sus creaturas.
R. Bendeciré al Señor eternamente.
Que te alaben, Señor, todas tus obras
y que todos tus fieles te bendigan.
Que proclamen la gloria de tu reino
y narren tus proezas a los hombres.
R. Bendeciré al Señor eternamente.
El Señor es siempre fiel a sus palabras
y lleno de bondad en sus acciones.
De su apoyo el Señor al que tropieza
y al agobiado alivia.
R. Bendeciré al Señor eternamente.

Lectionary: 153

Reading 1WIS 11:22-12:2

Before the LORD the whole universe is as a grain from a balance
 or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth.
 But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things;
 and you overlook people’s sins that they may repent.
 For you love all things that are
 and loathe nothing that you have made;
 for what you hated, you would not have fashioned.
 And how could a thing remain, unless you willed it;
 or be preserved, had it not been called forth by you?
 But you spare all things, because they are yours,
 O LORD and lover of souls,
 for your imperishable spirit is in all things!
 Therefore you rebuke offenders little by little,
 warn them and remind them of the sins they are committing,
 that they may abandon their wickedness and believe in you, O LORD!

Responsorial PsalmPS 145:1-2, 8-9, 10-11, 13, 14

R. (cf. 1)  I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
I will extol you, O my God and King,
and I will bless your name forever and ever.
Every day will I bless you,
and I will praise your name forever and ever.
R. I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
The LORD is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The LORD is good to all
and compassionate toward all his works.
R. I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
and let your faithful ones bless you.
Let them discourse of the glory of your kingdom
and speak of your might.
R. I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
The LORD is faithful in all his words
and holy in all his works.
The LORD lifts up all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down.
R. I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.

and you in him,
in accord with the grace of our God and Lord Jesus Christ.

We ask you, brothers and sisters,
with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ

GospelLK 19:1-10

At that time, Jesus came to Jericho and intended to pass through the town.
Now a man there named Zacchaeus,
who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man,
was seeking to see who Jesus was;
but he could not see him because of the crowd,
for he was short in stature.
So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus,
who was about to pass that way.
When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and said,
“Zacchaeus, come down quickly,
for today I must stay at your house.”
And he came down quickly and received him with joy.
When they all saw this, they began to grumble, saying,
“He has gone to stay at the house of a sinner.”
But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord,
“Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor,
and if I have extorted anything from anyone
I shall repay it four times over.”
And Jesus said to him,
“Today salvation has come to this house
because this man too is a descendant of Abraham.
For the Son of Man has come to seek
and to save what was lost.”

Solemnidad de Todos los santos – 1º De Noviembre 2019

Primera lectura

Apoc 7, 2-4. 9-14

Yo, Juan, vi a un ángel que venía del oriente. Traía consigo el sello del Dios vivo y gritaba con voz poderosa a los cuatro ángeles encargados de hacer daño a la tierra y al mar. Les dijo: “¡No hagan daño a la tierra, ni al mar, ni a los árboles, hasta que terminemos de marcar con el sello la frente de los servidores de nuestro Dios!” Y pude oír el número de los que habían sido marcados: eran ciento cuarenta y cuatro mil, procedentes de todas las tribus de Israel.

Vi luego una muchedumbre tan grande, que nadie podía contarla. Eran individuos de todas las naciones y razas, de todos los pueblos y lenguas. Todos estaban de pie, delante del trono y del Cordero; iban vestidos con una túnica blanca; llevaban palmas en las manos y exclamaban con voz poderosa: “La salvación viene de nuestro Dios, que está sentado en el trono, y del Cordero”.

Y todos los ángeles que estaban alrededor del trono, de los ancianos y de los cuatro seres vivientes, cayeron rostro en tierra delante del trono y adoraron a Dios, diciendo: “Amén. La alabanza, la gloria, la sabiduría, la acción de gracias, el honor, el poder y la fuerza, se le deben para siempre a nuestro Dios”.

Entonces uno de los ancianos me preguntó: “¿Quiénes son y de dónde han venido los que llevan la túnica blanca?” Yo le respondí: “Señor mío, tú eres quien lo sabe”. Entonces él me dijo: “Son los que han pasado por la gran persecución y han lavado y blanqueado su túnica con la sangre del Cordero”.


Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 23, 1-2. 3-4ab. 5-6

R. (cf 6) Esta es la clase de hombres que te buscan, Señor.
Del Señor es la tierra y lo que ella tiene,
el orbe todo y los que en él habitan,
pues él lo edificó sobre los mares
el fue quien lo asentó sobre los ríos.
R. Esta es la clase de hombres que te buscan, Señor.
¿Quién subirá hasta el monte del Señor?
¿Quién podrá estar en su recinto santo?
El de corazón limpio y manos puras
y que no jura en falso.
R. Esta es la clase de hombres que te buscan, Señor.
Ese obtendrá la bendición de Dios,
y Dios, su salvador, le hará justicia.
Esta es la clase de hombres que te buscan
y vienen ante ti, Dios de Jacob.
R. Esta es la clase de hombres que te buscan, Señor.


Segunda lectura

1 Jn 3, 1-3

Queridos hijos: Miren cuánto amor nos ha tenido el Padre, pues no sólo nos llamamos hijos de Dios, sino que lo somos. Si el mundo no nos reconoce, es porque tampoco lo ha reconocido a él.

Hermanos míos, ahora somos hijos de Dios, pero aún no se ha manifestado cómo seremos al fin. Y ya sabemos que, cuando él se manifieste, vamos a ser semejantes a él, porque lo veremos tal cual es.

Todo el que tenga puesta en Dios esta esperanza, se purifica a sí mismo para ser tan puro como él.


Aclamación antes del Evangelio

Mt 11, 28

R. Aleluya, aleluya.
Vengan a mí todos los que están fatigados
y agobiados por la carga,
y yo los aliviaré, dice el Señor.
R. Aleluya.


Evangelio

Mt 5, 1-12

En aquel tiempo, cuando Jesús vio a la muchedumbre, subió al monte y se sentó. Entonces se le acercaron sus discípulos. Enseguida comenzó a enseñarles, hablándoles así:

“Dichosos los pobres de espíritu,
porque de ellos es el Reino de los cielos.
Dichosos los que lloran,
porque serán consolados.
Dichosos los sufridos,
porque heredarán la tierra.
Dichosos los que tienen hambre y sed de justicia,
porque serán saciados.
Dichosos los misericordiosos,
porque obtendrán misericordia.
Dichosos los limpios de corazón,
porque verán a Dios.
Dichosos los que trabajan por la paz,
porque se les llamará hijos de Dios.
Dichosos los perseguidos por causa de la justicia,
porque de ellos es el Reino de los cielos.

Dichosos serán ustedes, cuando los injurien, los persigan y digan cosas falsas de ustedes por causa mía. Alégrense y salten de contento, porque su premio será grande en los cielos”.

Solemnity of All Saints
Lectionary: 667

Reading 1RV 7:2-4, 9-14

I, John, saw another angel come up from the East,
holding the seal of the living God.
He cried out in a loud voice to the four angels
who were given power to damage the land and the sea,
“Do not damage the land or the sea or the trees
until we put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”
I heard the number of those who had been marked with the seal,
one hundred and forty-four thousand marked
from every tribe of the children of Israel.

After this I had a vision of a great multitude,
which no one could count,
from every nation, race, people, and tongue.
They stood before the throne and before the Lamb,
wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands.
They cried out in a loud voice:

“Salvation comes from our God, who is seated on the throne,
and from the Lamb.”

All the angels stood around the throne
and around the elders and the four living creatures.
They prostrated themselves before the throne,
worshiped God, and exclaimed:

“Amen.  Blessing and glory, wisdom and thanksgiving,
honor, power, and might
be to our God forever and ever.  Amen.”

Then one of the elders spoke up and said to me,
“Who are these wearing white robes, and where did they come from?”
I said to him, “My lord, you are the one who knows.”
He said to me,
“These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress;
they have washed their robes
and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.”

Responsorial PsalmPS 24:1BC-2, 3-4AB, 5-6

R. (see 6)  Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
The LORD’s are the earth and its fullness;
the world and those who dwell in it.
For he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers.
R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
Who can ascend the mountain of the LORD?
or who may stand in his holy place?
One whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,
who desires not what is vain.
R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,
a reward from God his savior.
Such is the race that seeks him,
that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.

Reading 21 JN 3:1-3

Beloved:
See what love the Father has bestowed on us
that we may be called the children of God.
Yet so we are.
The reason the world does not know us
is that it did not know him.
Beloved, we are God’s children now;
what we shall be has not yet been revealed.
We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him,
for we shall see him as he is.
Everyone who has this hope based on him makes himself pure,
as he is pure.

AlleluiaMT 11:28

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest, says the Lord.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelMT 5:1-12A

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain,
and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
He began to teach them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you
and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.
Rejoice and be glad,
for your reward will be great in heaven.”

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time – October 27, 2019

Reading 1SIR 35:12-14, 16-18

The LORD is a God of justice,
 who knows no favorites.
 Though not unduly partial toward the weak,
 yet he hears the cry of the oppressed.
 The Lord is not deaf to the wail of the orphan,
 nor to the widow when she pours out her complaint.
 The one who serves God willingly is heard;
 his petition reaches the heavens.
 The prayer of the lowly pierces the clouds;
 it does not rest till it reaches its goal,
 nor will it withdraw till the Most High responds,
 judges justly and affirms the right,
 and the Lord will not delay.

Responsorial PsalmPS 34:2-3, 17-18, 19, 23

R. (7a)  The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
I will bless the LORD at all times;
his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Let my soul glory in the LORD;
the lowly will hear me and be glad.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
The LORD confronts the evildoers,
to destroy remembrance of them from the earth.
When the just cry out, the Lord hears them,
and from all their distress he rescues them.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
The LORD redeems the lives of his servants;
no one incurs guilt who takes refuge in him.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.

Reading 22 TM 4:6-8, 16-18

Beloved:
I am already being poured out like a libation,
and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have competed well; I have finished the race;
I have kept the faith.
From now on the crown of righteousness awaits me,
which the Lord, the just judge,
will award to me on that day, and not only to me,
but to all who have longed for his appearance.
At my first defense no one appeared on my behalf,
but everyone deserted me.
May it not be held against them!
But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength,
so that through me the proclamation might be completed
and all the Gentiles might hear it.
And I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.
The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat
and will bring me safe to his heavenly kingdom.
To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Alleluia2 COR 5:19

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ,
and entrusting to us the message of salvation.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelLK 18:9-14

Jesus addressed this parable
to those who were convinced of their own righteousness
and despised everyone else.
“Two people went up to the temple area to pray;
one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.
The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself,
‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity —
greedy, dishonest, adulterous — or even like this tax collector.
I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’
But the tax collector stood off at a distance
and would not even raise his eyes to heaven
but beat his breast and prayed,
‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’
I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former;
for whoever exalts himself will be humbled,
and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

XXX Domingo ordinario – 27 De Octobre, 2019

Primera lectura

Eclesiástico (Sirácide) 35, 12-17. 20-22

El Señor es un juez
que no se deja impresionar por apariencias.
No menosprecia a nadie por ser pobre
y escucha las súplicas del oprimido.
No desoye los gritos angustiosos del huérfano
ni las quejas insistentes de la viuda.

Quien sirve a Dios con todo su corazón es oído
y su plegaria llega hasta el cielo.
La oración del humilde atraviesa las nubes,
y mientras él no obtiene lo que pide,
permanece sin descanso y no desiste,
hasta que el Altísimo lo atiende
y el justo juez le hace justicia.


Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 33, 2-3. 17-18. 19 y 23

R. (7a) El Señor no está lejos de sus fieles.
Bendeciré al Señor a todas horas,
no cesará mi boca de alabarlo.
Yo me siento orgulloso del Señor,
que se alegre su pueblo al escucharlo.
R. El Señor no está lejos de sus fieles.
En contra del malvado está el Señor,
para borrar de la tierra su recuerdo.
Escucha, en cambio, al hombre justo
y lo libra de todas sus congojas.
R. El Señor no está lejos de sus fieles.
El Señor no está lejos de sus fieles
y levanta a las almas abatidas.
Salve el Señor la vida de sus siervos.
No morirán quienes en él esperan.
R. El Señor no está lejos de sus fieles.

Segunda lectura

2 Tm 4, 6-8. 16-18

Querido hermano: Para mí ha llegado la hora del sacrificio y se acerca el momento de mi partida. He luchado bien en el combate, he corrido hasta la meta, he perseverado en la fe. Ahora sólo espero la corona merecida, con la que el Señor, justo juez, me premiará en aquel día, y no solamente a mí, sino a todos aquellos que esperan con amor su glorioso advenimiento.

La primera vez que me defendí ante el tribunal, nadie me ayudó. Todos me abandonaron. Que no se les tome en cuenta. Pero el Señor estuvo a mi lado y me dio fuerzas para que, por mi medio, se proclamara claramente el mensaje de salvación y lo oyeran todos los paganos. Y fui librado de las fauces del león. El Señor me seguirá librando de todos los peligros y me llevará salvo a su Reino celestial. A él la gloria por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

Evangelio

Lc 18, 9-14

En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo esta parábola sobre algunos que s tenían por justos y despreciaban a los demás:

“Dos hombres subieron al templo para orar: uno era fariseo y el otro, publicano. El fariseo, erguido, oraba así en su interior: ‘Dios mío, te doy gracias porque no soy como los demás hombres: ladrones, injustos y adúlteros; tampoco soy como ese publicano. Ayuno dos veces por semana y pago el diezmo de todas mis ganancias’.

El publicano, en cambio, se quedó lejos y no se atrevía a levantar los ojos al cielo. Lo único que hacía era golpearse el pecho, diciendo: ‘Dios mío, apiádate de mí, que soy un pecador’.

Pues bien, yo les aseguro que éste bajó a su casa justificado y aquél no; porque todo el que se enaltece será humillado y el que se humilla será enaltecido”.
