Daily Mass Readings for July 25 2024, Feast of Saint James, Apostle

1st Reading – 2 Corinthians 4:7-15

Brothers and sisters:
7 We hold this treasure in earthen vessels, so that what is sublime may be of the power of God, and not of us.

8 In all things, we endure tribulation, yet we are not in anguish. We are constrained, yet we are not destitute.

9 We suffer persecution, yet we have not been abandoned. We are thrown down, yet we do not perish.

10 We ever carry around the mortification of Jesus in our bodies, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.

11 For we who live are ever handed over unto death for the sake of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our mortal flesh.

12 Therefore, death is at work in us, and life is at work in you.

13 But we have the same Spirit of faith. And just as it is written, “I believed, and for that reason I spoke,” so we also believe, and for that reason, we also speak.

14 For we know that the One who raised up Jesus will raise us up also with Jesus and will place us with you.

15 Thus, all is for you, so that grace, abounding through many in thanksgiving, may abound to the glory of God.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 126:1BC-2AB, 2CD-3, 4-5, 6

R.(5) Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.

1BC When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion,
we were like men dreaming.
2AB Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with rejoicing.
R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.

2CD Then they said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
3 The LORD has done great things for us;
we are glad indeed.
R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.

4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like the torrents in the southern desert.
5 Those that sow in tears
shall reap rejoicing.
R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.

6 Although they go forth weeping,
carrying the seed to be sown,
They shall come back rejoicing,
carrying their sheaves.
R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.

Alleluia – SEE John 15:16

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
16  I chose you from the world,
to go and bear fruit that will last, says the Lord.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 20:20-28

20 The mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something.

21 He said to her, “What do you wish?” She answered him, “Command that these two sons of mine sit, one at your right and the other at your left, in your Kingdom.”

22 Jesus said in reply, “You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?” They said to him, “We can.”

23 He replied, “My chalice you will indeed drink, but to sit at my right and at my left, this is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.”

24 When the ten heard this, they became indignant at the two brothers.

25 But Jesus summoned them and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their authority over them felt.

26 But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant;

27 whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.

28 Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
