Reading 1, 1 Chr 15:3-4, 15-16; 16:1-2
3 David then summoned all Israel to Jerusalem, to move the ark of Yahweh to the place which he had prepared for it.
4 David also called the sons of Aaron and the Levites together:
15 and the Levites carried the ark of God with the shafts on their shoulders, as Moses had ordered in accordance with the word of Yahweh.
16 David also told the heads of the Levites to appoint their kinsmen as singers with the accompaniment of musical instruments, lyres, harps, and cymbals to play joyfully.
1 They brought the ark of God in and put it inside the tent which David had erected for it, and brought burnt offerings and made communion sacrifices in God's presence.
2 And when David had finished making burnt offerings and communion sacrifices, he blessed the people in the name of Yahweh.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 45:10, 11, 12, 16
10 Listen, my daughter, attend to my words and hear; forget your own nation and your ancestral home,
11 then the king will fall in love with your beauty; he is your lord, bow down before him.
12 The daughter of Tyre will court your favour with gifts, and the richest of peoples
16 Instead of your ancestors you will have sons; you will make them rulers over the whole world.
Gospel, Lk 11:27-28
27 It happened that as he was speaking, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said, 'Blessed the womb that bore you and the breasts that fed you!'
28 But he replied, 'More blessed still are those who hear the word of God and keep it!'
Reading 2, 1 Cor 15:54b-57
54 And after this perishable nature has put on imperishability and this mortal nature has put on immortality, then will the words of scripture come true: Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?
56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin comes from the Law.
57 Thank God, then, for giving us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord.
