1st Reading – Exodus 40:16-21, 34-38

16 Moses did exactly as the LORD had commanded him.

17 On the first day of the first month of the second year
the Dwelling was erected.

18 It was Moses who erected the Dwelling. He placed its pedestals, set up its boards, put in its bars, and set up its columns.

19 He spread the tent over the Dwelling and put the covering on top of the tent, as the LORD had commanded him.

20 He took the commandments and put them in the ark; he placed poles alongside the ark and set the propitiatory upon it.

21 He brought the ark into the Dwelling and hung the curtain veil, thus screening off the ark of the commandments, as the LORD had commanded him.

34 Then the cloud covered the meeting tent, and the glory of the LORD filled the Dwelling.

35 Moses could not enter the meeting tent, because the cloud settled down upon it and the glory of the LORD filled the Dwelling.

36 Whenever the cloud rose from the Dwelling, the children of Israel would set out on their journey.

37 But if the cloud did not lift, they would not go forward; only when it lifted did they go forward.

38 In the daytime the cloud of the LORD was seen over the Dwelling; whereas at night, fire was seen in the cloud by the whole house of Israel in all the stages of their journey.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 84:3, 4, 5-6A AND 8A, 11

R. (2) How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord, mighty God!

3 My soul yearns and pines
for the courts of the LORD.
My heart and my flesh
cry out for the living God.
R. How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord, mighty God!

4 Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest
in which she puts her young–
Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
my king and my God!
R. How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord, mighty God!

5 Blessed they who dwell in your house!
continually they praise you.
36A Blessed the men whose strength you are!
8A They go from strength to strength.
R. How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord, mighty God!

11 I had rather one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I had rather lie at the threshold of the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
R. How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord, mighty God!

Alleluia – John 8:12

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
12 I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
whoever follows me will have the light of life.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – John 11:19-27

19 Many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them about their brother [Lazarus, who had died].

20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him; but Mary sat at home.

21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

22 But even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.”

23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise.”

24 Martha said to him, “I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day.”

25 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live,

26 and anyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.”

Or Luke 10:38-42

38 Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.

39 She had a sister named Mary who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.

40 Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.”

41 The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.

42 There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”
