USCCB Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 9,7-9.

Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening, and he was greatly perplexed because some were saying, "John has been raised from the dead" ;
others were saying, "Elijah has appeared"; still others, "One of the ancient prophets has arisen."
But Herod said, "John I beheaded. Who then is this about whom I hear such things?" And he kept trying to see him.

Pope from about 90 to 100
Letter to the Corinthians ; universal prayer (©Ancient Christian Writers)


God granted us to see in Jesus his well-beloved Son
May the Creator of the universe
preserve undiminished
the established number of His elect in all the world
through His beloved Son Jesus Christ,
through him he has called us out of darkness into light,
out of ignorance into the full knowledge of the splendor of His name.
we place our hope in your name
who gave existence to all creation.
Open the eyes of our heart,
that we may know You
who alone art Highest among the highest
and Holy, reposing among the holy.
You humble the pride of the haughty,
destroy the designs of the heathens;
you raise up the lowly and humble the lofty,
make rich and make poor,
slay and bring to life.
Only Benefactor of spirits
and God of all flesh,
you gaze upon the deep,
behold the works of men,
Helper in danger,
Savior in despair,
Creator and Watcher of every spirit. (…)
We beg you, O Master,
to be our Helper and Protector.
Deliver those of us who are in distress,
raise up the fallen.

Show your face to those in need,
heal the infirm,
bring back the erring of your people,
feed the hungry,
ransom our prisoners,
set the infirm upon their feet,
comfort the fainthearted.
Let all the nations know
that you are the only God,
that Jesus Christ is your Son,
that we are your people and the sheep of your pasture.

Book of Ecclesiastes 1,2-11.
Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth, vanity of vanities! All things are vanity!
What profit has man from all the labor which he toils at under the sun?
One generation passes and another comes, but the world forever stays.
The sun rises and the sun goes down; then it presses on to the place where it rises.
Blowing now toward the south, then toward the north, the wind …

Book of Ecclesiastes 1,2-11.
Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth, vanity of vanities! All things are vanity!
What profit has man from all the labor which he toils at under the sun?
One generation passes and another comes, but the world forever stays.
The sun rises and the sun goes down; then it presses on to the place where it rises.
Blowing now toward the south, then toward the north, the wind turns again and again, resuming its rounds.
All rivers go to the sea, yet never does the sea become full. To the place where they go, the rivers keep on going.
All speech is labored; there is nothing man can say. The eye is not satisfied with seeing nor is the ear filled with hearing.
What has been, that will be; what has been done, that will be done. Nothing is new under the sun.
Even the thing of which we say, "See, this is new!" has already existed in the ages that preceded us.
There is no remembrance of the men of old; nor of those to come will there be any remembrance among those who come after them.

Psalms 90(89),3-4.5-6.12-13.14.17bc.
You turn man back to dust,
saying, "Return, O children of men."
For a thousand years in your sight
are as yesterday, now that it is past,
or as a watch of the night.

You make an end of them in their sleep;
the next morning they are like the changing grass,
Which at dawn springs up anew,
but by evening wilts and fades.

Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain wisdom of heart.
Return, O LORD! How long?
Have pity on your servants!

Fill us at daybreak with your kindness,
that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.
Prosper the work of our hands for us!
Prosper the work of our hands!
