Saturday of the Twenty-eighth Week in Ordinary Time

Reading I Rom 4:13, 16-18 Brothers and sisters: It was not through the law that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants that he would inherit the world, but through the righteousness that comes from faith. For this reason, it depends on faith,  so that it may be a gift, and the promise may be guaranteed to all his descendants, not to those who only adhere to the law but to those who follow the faith of Abraham, who is the father of all of us, as it is written, I have made you father of many nations. He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into being what does not exist. He believed, hoping against hope, that he would become the father of many nations, according to what was said, Thus shall your descendants be. Responsorial Psalm 105:6-7, 8-9, 42-43 R.    (8a) The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. You descendants of Abraham, his servants,     sons of Jacob, his chosen ones! He, the LORD, is our God;     throughout the earth his judgments prevail. R.    The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. He remembers forever his covenant     which he made binding for a thousand generations – Which he entered into with Abraham     and by his oath to Isaac. R.    The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. For he remembered his holy word     to his servant Abraham. And he led forth his people with joy;     with shouts of joy, his chosen ones. R.    The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. Alleluia Jn 15:26b, 27a R. Alleluia, alleluia. The Spirit of truth will testify to me, says the Lord, and you also will testify. R. Alleluia, alleluia.
