Mass Readings for All Souls Day, November 2 2024

1st Reading – Wisdom 3:1-9

1 The souls of the just are in the hand of God and no torment of death will touch them.

2 In the eyes of the foolish, they seemed to die, and their departure was considered an affliction,

3 and their going away from us, a banishment. Yet they are in peace.

4 And though, in the sight of men, they suffered torments, their hope is full of immortality.

5 Troubled in few things, in many things they will be well compensated, because God has tested them and found them worthy of himself.

6 Like gold in the furnace, he has proved them, and as a holocaust victim, he has received them, and in the time of their visitation

7 they will shine, and they will dash about like sparks among stubble.

8 They will judge the nations and they will rule over the people, and their Lord will reign forever.

9 Those who trust in him, will understand the truth, and those who are faithful in love will rest in him, because grace and peace is for his elect.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 23:1-3A, 3B-4, 5, 6

R. (1) The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
or:
R. Though I walk in the valley of darkness, I fear no evil, for you are with me.

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
beside restful waters he leads me;
3A he refreshes my soul.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
or:
R. Though I walk in the valley of darkness, I fear no evil, for you are with me.

3B He guides me in right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side
with your rod and your staff
that give me courage.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
or:
R. Though I walk in the valley of darkness, I fear no evil, for you are with me.

5 You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
or:
R. Though I walk in the valley of darkness, I fear no evil, for you are with me.

6 Only goodness and kindness follow me
all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
for years to come.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
or:
R. Though I walk in the valley of darkness, I fear no evil, for you are with me.

2nd Reading – Romans 6:3-9

Brothers and sisters:
3 Are you unaware that we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

4 We were indeed buried with him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life.

5 For if we have grown into union with him through a death like his, we shall also be united with him in the resurrection.

6 We know that our old self was crucified with him, so that our sinful body might be done away with, that we might no longer be in slavery to sin.

7 For a dead person has been absolved from sin.

8 If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him.

9 We know that Christ, raised from the dead, dies no more; death no longer has power over him.

Or Romans 5:5-11

Brothers and sisters:
5 Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

6 For Christ, while we were still helpless, died at the appointed time for the ungodly.

7 Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die.

8 But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

9 How much more then, since we are now justified by his Blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath.

10 Indeed, if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, once reconciled, will we be saved by his life.

11 Not only that, but we also boast of God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Alleluia – Matthew 25:34

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
34 Come, you who are blessed by my Father;
inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – John 6:37-40

Jesus said to the crowds:
37 “Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me,

38 because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me.

39 And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day.

40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.”
