First Reading – 1 Kings 19:16B, 19-21

16B The LORD said to Elijah: “You shall anoint Elisha, son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah, as prophet to succeed you.”

19 Elijah set out and came upon Elisha, son of Shaphat, as he was ploughing with twelve yokes of oxen; he was following the twelfth. Elijah went over to him and threw his cloak over him.

20 Elisha left the oxen, ran after Elijah, and said, “Please, let me kiss my father and mother goodbye, and I will follow you.” Elijah answered, “Go back! Have I done anything to you?”

21 Elisha left him, and taking the yoke of oxen, slaughtered them; he used the ploughing equipment for fuel to boil their flesh and gave it to his people to eat. Then Elisha left and followed Elijah as his attendant.

Responsorial Psalm – Ps. 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 9-10, 11

R. (cf. 5a) You are my inheritance, O Lord.

1 Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;

2 I say to the LORD, “My Lord are you.

5 O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,

you it is who hold fast my lot.”

R. You are my inheritance, O Lord.

7 I bless the LORD who counsels me;

even in the night, my heart exhorts me.

8 I set the LORD ever before me;

with him, at my right hand, I shall not be disturbed.

R. You are my inheritance, O Lord.

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,

my body, too, abides in confidence

10 because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,

nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.

R. You are my inheritance, O Lord.

11 You will show me the path to life,

fullness of joys in your presence,

the delights at your right hand forever.

R. You are my inheritance, O Lord.

Second Reading – Galatians 5:1, 13-18

Brothers and sisters:

1 For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.

13 For you were called for freedom, brothers and sisters. But do not use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh; rather, serve one another through love.

14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one statement, namely, You shall love your neighbour as yourself.

15 But if you go on biting and devouring one another, beware that you are not consumed by one another.

16 I say, then: live by the Spirit and you will certainly not gratify the desire of the flesh.

17 For the flesh has desires against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh;

these are opposed to each other, so that you may not do what you want.

18 But if you are guided by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Alleluia – 1 Samuel 3:9; John 6:68C

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

9 Speak, Lord, your servant is listening;

68C you have the words of everlasting life.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Reading for July 2 2028 – Luke 9:51-62

51 When the days for Jesus’ being taken up were fulfilled, he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem,

52 and he sent messengers ahead of him. On the way they entered a Samaritan village to prepare for his reception there,

53 but they would not welcome him because the destination of his journey was Jerusalem.

54 When the disciples James and John saw this they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?”

55 Jesus turned and rebuked them,

56 and they journeyed to another village.

57 As they were proceeding on their journey someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”

58 Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.”

59 And to another, he said, “Follow me.” But he replied, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.”

60 But he answered him, “Let the dead bury their dead. But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”

61 And another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.”

62 To him, Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plough and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God.”

80 The child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the desert until the day of his manifestation to Israel.
