Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time   (연중 제 32 주일 / 평신도 주일)

November. 8th, 2020




1st Reading : WIS 6:12-16

Reader : A reading from the book of Wisdom


Resplendent and unfading is wisdom, and she is readily perceived by those who love her, and found by those who seek her.

She hastens to make herself known in anticipation of their desire; Whoever watches for her at dawn shall not be disappointed, for he shall find her sitting by his gate.

For taking thought of wisdom is the perfection of prudence, and whoever for her sake keeps vigil shall quickly be free from care; because she makes her own rounds, seeking those worthy of her, and graciously appears to them in the ways, and meets them with all solicitude.



Reader : The word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.



Responsorial Psalm : PS 63:2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8

R : My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.



O God, you are my God whom I seek; for you my flesh pines and my soul thirsts like the earth, parched, lifeless and without water. R



Thus have I gazed toward you in the sanctuary to see your power and your glory.

For your kindness is a greater good than life; my lips shall glorify you. R



Thus will I bless you while I live; lifting up my hands, I will call upon your name.

As with the riches of a banquet shall my soul be satisfied, and with exultant lips my mouth shall praise you. R



I will remember you upon my couch, and through the night-watches I will meditate on you:

You are my help, and in the shadow of your wings I shout for joy. R



2nd Reading : 1 THES 4:13-14

Reader : A reading from St. Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians


We do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, about those who have fallen asleep, so that you may not grieve like the rest, who have no hope.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose, so too will God, through Jesus, bring with him those who have fallen asleep.



Reader : The word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.



Alleluia : MT 24:42A, 44

Stay awake and be ready

For you do not know on what day your Lord will come.




Gospel : MT 25:1-13

Priest : A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

All : Glory to you, O Lord.


Jesus told his disciples this parable:

"The kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones, when taking their lamps, brought no oil with them, but the wise brought flasks of oil with their lamps. Since the bridegroom was long delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight, there was a cry, 'Behold, the bridegroomCome out to meet him' Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise ones replied, 'No, for there may not be enough for us and you. Go instead to the merchants and buy some for yourselves.' While they went off to buy it, the bridegroom came and those who were ready went into the wedding feast with him. Then the door was locked. Afterwards the other virgins came and said, 'Lord, Lord, open the door for us' But he said in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, I do not know you.' Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour."



Priest : The Gospel of the Lord.

All : Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
