A reading from the Book of the Prophet Malachi
(1 Malachi 4:1-2a)

Behold, the day comes, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble; the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of host, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear my name the sun of righteousness shall rise, with healing in its wings.

The word of the Lord.

Wimbo wa Katikati
Zab 98:5-9

(K) Bwana anakuja kuwahukumu mataifa kwa haki

Mwimbieni Bwana zaburi kwa kinubi,
Kwa kinubi na sauti ya zaburi.
Kwa panda na sauti ya baragumu.
Shangilieni mbele za Mfalme, Bwana.
(K) Bwana anakuja awahukumu mataifa kwa haki.

Bahari na ivume na vyote viijazavyo,
Ulimwengu nao wanaokaa ndani yake.
Mito na ipige makofi, Milima na iimbe pamoja kwa furaha mbele za Bwana;
(K) Bwana anakuja awahukumu mataifa kwa haki.

Kwa maana anakuja aihukumu nchi.
Atauhukumu ulimwengu kwa haki,
Na mataifa kwa adili.
(K) Bwana anakuja awahukumu mataifa kwa haki.

Second Reading

If any one will not work, let him not eat

A reading from the second Letter of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians (2 Thessalonians 3:7-12)

Brethren: You know how you ought to imitate us; we were not idle when we were with you, we did not eat any one’s bread without paying, but with toil and labour we worked night and day, that we might not burden any of you. It was not because we have not that right, but to give you in our conduct an example to imitate. For even when we were with you, we gave you this command; if any one will not work, let him not eat. For we hear that some of you are walking in idleness, mere busybodies, not doing any work, now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work in quietness and to earn their own living.

The word of the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation
Luke 21:28

Alleluia. Look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.


By your endurance you will gain your lives

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke (Luke 21:5- 19)

At that time: As some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with noble stones and offerings, Jesus said, “As for these things which you see, the days will come when there shall not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.” And they asked him, “Teacher, when will this be, and what will be the sign when this is about to take place?” And he said, “Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and, ‘The time is at hand!’ Do not go after them. And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified; for this must first take place, but the end will not be at once.” Then he said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. But before all this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name’s sake. This will be a time for you to bear testimony. Settle it therefore in your minds, not to meditate beforehand how to answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict. You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends, and some of you they will put to death; you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your lives.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
