Scripture of the Day

Reading 1 Jb 3:1-3, 11-17, 20-23
Job opened his mouth and cursed his day.Job spoke out and said:Perish the day on which I was born,the night when they said, “The child is a boy!”Why did I not perish at birth,come forth from the womb and expire?Or why was I not buried away like an untimely birth,like babes that have never seen the light?Wherefore did the knees receive me?or why did I suck at the breasts?For then I should have lain down and been tranquil;had I slept, I should then have been at restWith kings and counselors of the earthwho built where now there are ruinsOr with princes who had goldand filled their houses with silver.There the wicked cease from troubling,there the weary are at rest.Why is light given to the toilers,and life to the bitter in spirit?They wait for death and it comes not;they search for it rather than for hidden treasures,Rejoice in it exultingly,and are glad when they reach the grave:Those whose path is hidden from them,and whom God has hemmed in!
Responsorial Psalm Ps 88:2-3, 4-5, 6, 7-8
R. (3) Let my prayer come before you, Lord.O LORD, my God, by day I cry out;at night I clamor in your presence.Let my prayer come before you;incline your ear to my call for help.R. Let my prayer come before you, Lord.For my soul is surfeited with troublesand my life draws near to the nether world.I am numbered with those who go down into the pit;I am a man without strength.R. Let my prayer come before you, Lord.My couch is among the dead,like the slain who lie in the grave,Whom you remember no longerand who are cut off from your care.R. Let my prayer come before you, Lord.You have plunged me into the bottom of the pit,into the dark abyss.Upon me your wrath lies heavy,and with all your billows you overwhelm me.R. Let my prayer come before you, Lord.
Alleluia Mk 10:45
R. Alleluia, alleluia.The Son of Man came to serveand to give his life as a ransom for many.R. Alleluia, alleluia.Gospel Lk 9:51-56

When the days for Jesus to be taken up were fulfilled,he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem,and he sent messengers ahead of him.On the way they entered a Samaritan villageto prepare for his reception there,but they would not welcome himbecause the destination of his journey was Jerusalem.When the disciples James and John saw this they asked,“Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heavento consume them?”Jesus turned and rebuked them,and they journeyed to another village.
