First Reading – Romans 4:1-8

Brothers and sisters:

1 What can we say that Abraham found, our ancestor according to the flesh?

2 Indeed, if Abraham was justified on the basis of his works, he has reason to boast; but this was not so in the sight of God.

3 For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.

4 A worker’s wage is credited not as a gift, but as something due.

5 But when one does not work, yet believes in the one who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness.

6 So also David declares the blessedness of the person to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

7 Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered.

8 Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not record.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 32:1B-2, 5, 11

R. (see 7) I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.

1B Blessed is he whose fault is taken away,

whose sin is covered.

2 Blessed the man to whom the LORD imputes not guilt,

in whose spirit there is no guile.

R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.

5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you,

my guilt I covered not.

I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,”

and you took away the guilt of my sin.

R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.

11 Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you just;

exult, all you upright of heart.

R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.

Alleluia – Psalms 33:22

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

22 May your kindness, O LORD, be upon us;

who have put our hope in you.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Reading for October 20 2023 – Luke 12:1-7

1 At that time: So many people were crowding together that they were trampling one another underfoot. Jesus began to speak, first to his disciples, “Beware of the leaven–that is, the hypocrisy–of the Pharisees.

2 “There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.

3 Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed on the housetops.

4 I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body but after that can do no more.

5 I shall show you whom to fear. Be afraid of the one who after killing has the power to cast into Gehenna; yes, I tell you, be afraid of that one.

6 Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.

7 Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.”
