Mass Readings For September 17, 2016

1 Corinthians 15:35-37, 42-49
Psalms 56:10-12, 13-14
Luke 8:4-15

1 Corinthians 15:35-37, 42-49
35 Someone may ask: How are dead people raised, and what sort of body do they have when they come? 36 How foolish! What you sow must die before it is given new life; 37 and what you sow is not the body that is to be, but only a bare grain, of wheat I dare say, or some other kind
42 It is the same too with the resurrection of the dead: what is sown is perishable, but what is raised is imperishable; 43 what is sown is contemptible but what is raised is glorious; what is sown is weak, but what is raised is powerful; 44 what is sown is a natural body, and what is raised is a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is a spiritual body too. 45 So the first man, Adam, as scripture says, became a living soul; and the last Adam has become a life-giving spirit. 46 But first came the natural body, not the spiritual one; that came only afterwards. 47 The first man, being made of earth, is earthly by nature; the second man is from heaven. 48 The earthly man is the pattern for earthly people, the heavenly man for heavenly ones. 49 And as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so we shall bear the likeness of the heavenly one.

Psalms 56:10-13
10 In God whose word I praise, in Yahweh whose word I praise, 11 in God I put my trust and have no fear; what can mortal man do to me? 12 I am bound by the vows I have made, God, I will pay you the debt of thanks, 13 for you have saved my life from death to walk in the presence of God, in the light of the living.

Luke 8:4;15
14 As for the part that fell into thorns, this is people who have heard, but as they go on their way they are choked by the worries and riches and pleasures of life and never produce any crops. 15 As for the part in the rich soil, this is people with a noble and generous heart who have heard the word and take it to themselves and yield a harvest through their perseverance.
