The Recently Departed


Readings at Mass



O God, who have prepared for those who love you

good things which no eye can see,

fill our hearts, we pray, with the warmth of your love,

so that, loving you in all things and above all things,

we may attain your promises,

which surpass every human desire.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.


First readingProverbs 9:1-6

Wisdom has built herself a house,she has erected her seven pillars,she has slaughtered her beasts, prepared her wine,she has laid her table.

She has despatched her maidservantsand proclaimed from the city’s heights:‘Who is ignorant? Let him step this way.’

To the fool she says,‘Come and eat my bread,drink the wine I have prepared!Leave your folly and you will live,

walk in the ways of perception.’


Responsorial Psalm                                                                                         Psalm 33(34):2-3,10-15

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

I will bless the Lord at all times,

his praise always on my lips;

in the Lord my soul shall make its boast.

The humble shall hear and be glad.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Revere the Lord, you his saints.

They lack nothing, those who revere him.

Strong lions suffer want and go hungry

but those who seek the Lord lack no blessing.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Come, children, and hear me

that I may teach you the fear of the Lord.

Who is he who longs for life

and many days, to enjoy his prosperity?

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Then keep your tongue from evil

and your lips from speaking deceit.

Turn aside from evil and do good;

seek and strive after peace.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.


Second reading                                                                                                                        Ephesians 5:15-20

Be very careful about the sort of lives you lead, like intelligent and not like senseless people. This may be a wicked age, but you redeem it. And do not be thoughtless but recognise what is the will of the Lord. Do not drug yourselves with wine, this is simply dissipation; be filled with the Spirit. Sing the words and tunes of the psalms and hymns when you are together, and go on singing and chanting to the Lord in your hearts, so that always and everywhere you are giving thanks to God who is our Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Gospel Acclamation                                                                                                                             Jn1:14,12

Alleluia, alleluia!

The Word was made flesh and lived among us:

to all who did accept him

he gave power to become children of God.





Alleluia, alleluia!

He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood

lives in me, and I live in him,

says the Lord.



Gospel                                                                                                                         John 6:51-58

Jesus said to the Jews:

‘I am the living bread which has come down from heaven.Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever;and the bread that I shall give is my flesh,for the life of the world.’

Then the Jews started arguing with one another: ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ they said. Jesus replied:

‘I tell you most solemnly,if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood,you will not have life in you.

Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my bloodhas eternal life,and I shall raise him up on the last day.

For my flesh is real foodand my blood is real drink.He who eats my flesh and drinks my bloodlives in me

and I live in him.As I, who am sent by the living Father,myself draw life from the Father,so whoever eats me will draw life from me.This is the bread come down from heaven;not like the bread our ancestors ate:

they are dead,but anyone who eats this bread will live for ever.’
