Scripture readings for Saint Patrick’s Day Mass

The Mass on St Patrick’s Day, 17th March 2021 will be celebrated at 10.30am, online only. Mass will be celebrated as Gaeilge, except for the homily, which will be in English. For those who would like to follow the readings in English, here are the readings in English, if you wish to print them out or follow them on your device while they are being read:

First Reading 

Ecclesiasticus 39:6-10

A reading from the Book of Ecclesiasticus

If it is the will of the great Lord,

he will be filled with the spirit of understanding,

he will shower forth words of wisdom,

and in prayer give thanks to the Lord.

He will grow upright in purpose and learning,

he will ponder the Lord’s hidden mysteries.

He will display the instruction he has received,

taking his pride in the Law of the Lord’s covenant.

Many will praise his understanding,

and it will never be forgotten.

His memory will not disappear,

generation after generation his name will live.

Nations will proclaim his wisdom,

the assembly will celebrate his praises.

The word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God

 

Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 116 (117)

R/ Go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News.

O praise the Lord, all you nations,

acclaim him all you peoples!

R/

Strong is his love for us;

he is faithful for ever.

R/

 

Second reading

2 Timothy 4:1-8

A reading from the Second Letter of Paul to Timothy

Before God and before Christ Jesus who is to be judge of the living and the dead, I put this duty to you, in the name of his Appearing and of his kingdom: proclaim the message and, welcome or unwelcome, insist on it. Refute falsehood, correct error, call to obedience – but do all with patience and with the intention of teaching. The time is sure to come when, far from being content with sound teaching, people will be avid for the latest novelty and collect themselves a whole series of teachers according to their own tastes; and then, instead of listening to the truth, they will turn to myths. Be careful always to choose the right course; be brave under trials; make the preaching of the Good News your life’s work, in thoroughgoing service.

As for me, my life is already being poured away as a libation, and the time has come for me to be gone. I have fought the good fight to the end; I have run the race to the finish; I have kept the faith; all there is to come now is the crown of righteousness reserved for me, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that Day; and not only to me but to all those who have longed for his Appearing.

The word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Gospel Acclamation                                                                                        

Praise and honour to you, Lord Jesus!

Go, make disciples of all nations, says the Lord.

Look, I will be with you always, to the end of the world.

Praise and honour to you, Lord Jesus!

Gospel

Matthew 13:24-32

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew

Glory to you, O Lord.

Jesus put another parable before the crowds: ‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. While everybody was asleep his enemy came, sowed darnel all among the wheat, and made off. When the new wheat sprouted and ripened, the darnel appeared as well. The owner’s servants went to him and said, “Sir, was it not good seed that you sowed in your field? If so, where does the darnel come from?” “Some enemy has done this” he answered. And the servants said, “Do you want us to go and weed it out?” But he said, “No, because when you weed out the darnel you might pull up the wheat with it. Let them both grow till the harvest; and at harvest time I shall say to the reapers: First collect the darnel and tie it in bundles to be burnt, then gather the wheat into my barn.”’

He put another parable before them: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the biggest shrub of all and becomes a tree so that the birds of the air come and shelter in its branches.’

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.
