SOLEMNITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI — Year B

First Reading: Exodus 24:3-8

A reading from the book of Exodus.

When Moses came and told the people all the commands of Our God and all the ordinances, they all answered with one voice, “We will observe all the commands that Our God has decreed.”  Moses then wrote down all the commands of God, and early next morning built an altar at the foot of the mountain, with twelve standing stones for the twelve tribes of Israel. Then he directed selected young Israelites to offer burnt offerings and to sacrifice young bulls as peace offerings to Our God.  Moses then took half of the blood. and put it into bowls; the other half he splashed on the altar.  And taking the scroll of the Covenant, Moses read it aloud to the people, and the people answered, “We will heed and do all that Our God has decreed.”  Then Moses sprinkled the blood on the people, saying, “This is the blood of the Covenant which Our God has made with you in giving you these laws.”

The Word of God recorded in the book of Exodus.
