THIRTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year B

First Reading: Daniel 12:1-3

A reading from the book of the prophet Daniel.

At that time, Michael will stand up, the great ruler who watches over your people.  There is going to be a time of great distress, unparalleled since nations first came into existence.  When that time comes, your own people will be rescued-all those whose names are found written in the Book.

Many of those who lie sleeping in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting disgrace.  Those who are enlightened will shine as brightly as the vault of heaven, and those who lead the many to justice will shine like stars for all eternity.

The Word of God recorded in the book of the prophet Daniel.

THIRTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year B

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 16

R: Protect me, O God, because I come to You for safety.

You, Adonai, are all I have,

and You give me all I need;

my life is in Your hands.

I am always aware of Your presence;

You are near, and nothing can shake me.

R:  Protect me, O God, because I come to You for safety.

And so I am full of happiness and joy,

and I always feel secure;

Because You will not allow me

to go to the world of the dead;

You will not abandon to the depths below

the one You love.

R:  Protect me, O God, because I come to You for safety.

You will show me the path that leads to life;

Your presence fills me with joy,

and Your help brings pleasure forever.

R:  Protect me, O God, because I come to You for safety.
