Sunday 16 June 2019 - The Most Holy Trinity (Year C)
Liturgy of the Word
First Reading: Prov 8:22-31
The Wisdom of God cries aloud: The Lord created me when his purpose first unfolded, before the oldest of his works. From everlasting I was firmly
set, from the beginning, before earth came into being. The deep was not, when I was born, there were no springs to gush with water. Before the
mountains were settled, before the hills, I came to birth; before he made the earth, the countryside, or the first grains of the world's dust. When he
fixed the heavens firm, I was there, when he drew a ring on the surface of the deep, when he thickened the clouds above, when he fixed fast the
springs of the deep, when he assigned the sea its boundaries and the waters will not invade the shore when he laid down the foundations of the
earth, I was by his side, a master craftsman, delighting him day after day, ever at play in his presence, at play everywhere in his world, delighting to
be with the sons of men.
O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth.
Second Reading: Rom 5:1-5
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, by faith we are judged righteous and at peace with God, since it is by faith and through Jesus that we have
entered this state of grace in which we can boast about looking forward to God’s glory. But that is not all we can boast about; we can boast about our
sufferings. These sufferings bring patience, as we know, and patience brings perseverance, and perseverance brings hope, and this hope is not
deceptive, because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit which has been given us.
Glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit: to God who is, who was, and who is to come.
Gospel: Jn 16:12-15
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I still have many things to say to you but they would be too much for you now. But when the Spirit of truth comes he will
lead you to the complete truth, since he will not be speaking as from himself but will say only what he has learnt; and he will tell you of the things to come. He will glorify me, since all he tells you will be taken from what is mine. Everything the Father has is mine; that is why I said: All he tells you will be taken from what is mine.’
