Reading 1: 1 Thes 4:13-18
And we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are sleeping, so as not to be sorrowful, like these others who do not have hope. For if we believe that Jesus has died and risen again, so also will God bring back with Jesus those who sleep in him. For we say this to you, in the Word of the Lord: that we who are alive, who remain until the return of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself, with a command and with the voice of an Archangel and with a trumpet of God, shall descend from heaven. And the dead, who are in Christ, shall rise up first. Next, we who are alive, who are remaining, shall be taken up quickly together with them into the clouds to meet Christ in the air. And in this way, we shall be with the Lord always. Therefore, console one another with these words.

Responsorial Psalm: Ps 96:1 and 3, 4-5, 11-12, 13
R. The Lord comes to judge the earth.

Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: sing to the Lord, all the earth. Declare his glory among the Gentiles: his wonders among all people.
R. The Lord comes to judge the earth.

For the Lord is great, and exceedingly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.
R. The Lord comes to judge the earth.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad, let the sea be moved, and the fulness thereof. The fields and all things that are in them shall be joyful. Then shall all the trees of the woods rejoice.
R. The Lord comes to judge the earth.

Before the face of the Lord, because he cometh: because he cometh to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with justice, and the people with his truth.
R. The Lord comes to judge the earth.

Alleluia: See Lk 4:18
R. Alleluia, alleluia.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; he has
sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel: Luke 4:16-30
And he went to Nazareth, where he had been raised. And he entered into the synagogue, according to his custom, on the Sabbath day. And he rose up to read. And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. And as he unrolled the book, he found the place where it was written:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; because of this, he has anointed me. He has sent me to evangelize the poor, to heal the contrite of heart, to preach forgiveness to captives and sight to the blind, to release the broken into forgiveness, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of retribution.”

And when he had rolled up the book, he returned it to the minister, and he sat down. And the eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, “On this day, this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” And everyone gave testimony to him. And they wondered at the words of grace that proceeded from his mouth. And they said, “Is this not the son of Joseph?” And he said to them: “Certainly, you will recite to me this saying, ‘Physician, heal yourself.’ The many great things that we have heard were done in Capernaum, do here also in your own country.” Then he said: “Amen I say to you, that no prophet is accepted in his own country. In truth, I say to you, there were many widows in the days of Elijah in Israel, when the heavens were closed for three years and six months, when a great famine had occurred throughout the entire land. And to none of these was Elijah sent, except to Zarephath of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And there were many lepers in Israel under the prophet Elisha. And none of these was cleansed, except Naaman the Syrian.” And all those in the synagogue, upon hearing these things, were filled with anger. And they rose up and drove him beyond the city. And they brought him all the way to the edge of the mount, upon which their city had been built, so that they might throw him down violently. But passing through their midst, he went away.
