September 16 2019: Today’s Mass Readings and Gospel – Audio – Lectionary: 443 

1st Reading – 1 Timothy 2:1-8

Beloved:
1 First of all, I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone,

2 for kings and for all in authority, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life
in all devotion and dignity.

3 This is good and pleasing to God our savior,

4 who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.

5 For there is one God. There is also one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus,

6 who gave himself as ransom for all. This was the testimony at the proper time.

7 For this I was appointed preacher and Apostle (I am speaking the truth, I am not lying), teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

8 It is my wish, then, that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 28:2, 7, 8-9

R. (6) Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard my prayer.

2 Hear the sound of my pleading, when I cry to you,
lifting up my hands toward your holy shrine.
R.Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard my prayer.

7 The LORD is my strength and my shield.
In him my heart trusts, and I find help;
then my heart exults, and with my song I give him thanks.
R.Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard my prayer.

8 The LORD is the strength of his people,
the saving refuge of his anointed.
9 Save your people, and bless your inheritance;
feed them, and carry them forever!
R.Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard my prayer.

Alleluia – John 3:16

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
16 God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Luke 7:1-10

1 When Jesus had finished all his words to the people, he entered Capernaum.

2 A centurion there had a slave who was ill and about to die, and he was valuable to him.

3 When he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and save the life of his slave.

4 They approached Jesus and strongly urged him to come, saying, “He deserves to have you do this for him,

5 for he loves our nation and he built the synagogue for us.”

6 And Jesus went with them, but when he was only a short distance from the house, the centurion sent friends to tell him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof.

7 Therefore, I did not consider myself worthy to come to you; but say the word and let my servant be healed.

8 For I too am a person subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come here, and he comes; and to my slave, Do this, and he does it.”

9 When Jesus heard this he was amazed at him and, turning, said to the crowd following him, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.”

10 When the messengers returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.
