Daily Mass Readings for September 14 2024, Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

1st Reading – Numbers 21:4B-9

4B The people began to tire of their journey and hardships.

5 And speaking against God and Moses, they said: “Why did you lead us away from Egypt, so as to die in the wilderness? Bread is lacking; there are no waters. Our soul is now nauseous over this very light food.”

6 For this reason, the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, which wounded or killed many of them.

7 And so they went to Moses, and they said: “We have sinned, because we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray, so that he may take away these serpents from us.” And Moses prayed for the people.

8 And the Lord said to him: “Make a bronze serpent, and place it as a sign. Whoever, having been struck, gazes upon it, shall live.”

9 Therefore, Moses made a bronze serpent, and he placed it as a sign. When those who had been struck gazed upon it, they were healed.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 78:1BC-2, 34-35, 36-37, 38

R. (See 7b) Do not forget the works of the Lord!

1BC Hearken, my people, to my teaching;
incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable,
I will utter mysteries from of old.
R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!

34 While he slew them they sought him
and inquired after God again,
35 Remembering that God was their rock
and the Most High God, their redeemer.
R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!

36 But they flattered him with their mouths
and lied to him with their tongues,
37 Though their hearts were not steadfast toward him,
nor were they faithful to his covenant.
R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!

38 But he, being merciful, forgave their sin
and destroyed them not;
Often he turned back his anger
and let none of his wrath be roused.
R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!

2nd Reading – Philippians 2:6-11

Brothers and sisters:
6 Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to be seized.

7 Instead, he emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and accepting the state of a man.

8 He humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, even the death of the Cross.

9 Because of this, God has also exalted him and has given him a name which is above every name,

10 so that, at the name of Jesus, every knee would bend, of those in heaven, of those on earth, and of those in hell,

11 and so that every tongue would confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.

Alleluia

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you,
because by your Cross you have redeemed the world.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – John 3:13-17

Jesus said to Nicodemus:
13 “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man.

14 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,

15 so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.

17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
