First Reading – 1 Kings 17:17-24

Elijah went to Zarephath of Sidon to the house of a widow.

17 The son of the mistress of the house fell sick, and his sickness grew more severe until he stopped breathing.

18 So she said to Elijah, “Why have you done this to me, O man of God? Have you come to me to call attention to my guilt and to kill my son?”

19 Elijah said to her, “Give me your son.” Taking him from her lap, he carried the son to the upper room where he was staying, and put him on his bed.


20 Elijah called out to the LORD: “O LORD, my God, will you afflict even the widow with whom I am staying by killing her son?”

21 Then he stretched himself out upon the child three times and called out to the LORD: “O LORD, my God, let the life breath return to the body of this child.”

22 The LORD heard the prayer of Elijah; the life breath returned to the child’s body and he revived.

23 Taking the child, Elijah brought him down into the house from the upper room and gave him to his mother. Elijah said to her, “See! Your son is alive.”

24 The woman replied to Elijah, “Now indeed I know that you are a man of God. The word of the LORD comes truly from your mouth.”


Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 30:2, 4, 5-6, 11, 12, 13

R. (2a) I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.

2 I will extol you, O LORD, for you drew me clear

and did not let my enemies rejoice over me.

4 O LORD, you brought me up from the nether world;

you preserved me from among those going down into the pit.


R. I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.

5 Sing praise to the LORD, you his faithful ones,

and give thanks to his holy name.

6 For his anger lasts but a moment;

a lifetime, his good will.


At nightfall, weeping enters in,

but with the dawn, rejoicing.

R. I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.

11 Hear, O LORD, and have pity on me;

O LORD, be my helper.


12A You changed my mourning into dancing;

13C O LORD, my God, forever will I give you thanks.

R. I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.

Second Reading – Galatians 1:11-19

11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel preached by me is not of human origin.

12 For I did not receive it from a human being, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.


13 For you heard of my former way of life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it,

14 and progressed in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my race, since I was even more a zealot for my ancestral traditions.

15 But when God, who from my mother’s womb had set me apart and called me through his grace, was pleased

16 to reveal his Son to me, so that I might proclaim him to the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult flesh and blood,

17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; rather, I went into Arabia and then returned to Damascus.


18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to confer with Cephas and remained with him for fifteen days.

19 But I did not see any other of the apostles, only James the brother of the Lord.

Alleluia – Luke 7:16

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

16 A great prophet has risen in our midst

God has visited his people.


R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Luke 7:11-17

11 Jesus journeyed to a city called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd accompanied him.

12 As he drew near to the gate of the city, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. A large crowd from the city was with her.

13 When the Lord saw her, he was moved with pity for her and said to her, “Do not weep.”

14 He stepped forward and touched the coffin; at this the bearers halted, and he said, “Young man, I tell you, arise!”


15 The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother.

16 Fear seized them all, and they glorified God, crying out “A great prophet has arisen in our midst,” and “God has visited his people.”

17 This report about him spread through the whole of Judea and in all the surrounding region.
