HOLY TRINITY SUNDAY — Year B

First Reading: Deuteronomy 4:32-34; 39-40/span>

A reading from the book of Deuteronomy.

 

Moses said to the people, “Put this question, then, to the ages that are past, that went before you, from the time God created people on earth: Was there ever a word so majestic, from one end of heaven to the other? Was anything ever heard?  Did ever a people hear the voice of the living God speaking from the heart of the fire, as you heard it, and remain alive?  Has any god ventured to take one nation from the midst of another by ordeals, by signs and wonders, by war with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, by fearsome terrors – as Your God did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes?

 

“Understand this today, therefore, and take it to heart:  Your God is God indeed, in heaven above and on earth beneath, and there is no other. Keep the laws and commandments of the Most High as I gave them to you today, so that you and your children may prosper and live long in the land
that Your God gives you forever.”

 

The Word of God recorded in the book of Deuteronomy.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 33

R:  They are happy whose God is the Creator, the people God has chosen.

         and all God’s works are to be trusted.

The Creator loves justice and right

         and fills the earth with love.

 

R:  They are happy whose God is the Creator, the people God has chosen.

 

By the Creator’s word the heavens were made,

         by the breath of God’s mouth all the stars.

The Creator spoke and it came to be;

         commanded, it sprang into existence.

 

R:  They are happy whose God is the Creator, the people God has chosen.

 

The Creator looks on those who stand in reverence,

         on those who hope in God’s love,

To rescue their souls from death,

         to keep them alive in famine.

 

R:  They are happy whose God is the Creator, the people God has chosen.

 

Our soul is waiting for God,

         our help and our shield.

May Your faithful love be upon us, 0 God,

         as we place our hope in You.

 

R:  They are happy whose God is the Creator, the people God has chosen.
