SUNDAY MASS READINGS

Sunday 7th June 2020 : The Most Holy Trinity

FIRST READING

A reading from the Book of Exodus    34:4-6. 8-9

With the two tablets of stone in his hands, he went up the mountain of Sinai in the early morning as the Lord had commanded him. And the Lord descended in the form of a cloud, and Moses stood with him there.

He called on the name of the Lord.  The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, the Lord, a God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in kindness and faithfulness; And Moses bowed down to the ground at once and worshipped.

‘If I have indeed won your favour, Lord,’ he said ‘let my Lord come with us, I beg. True, they are a headstrong people, but forgive us our faults and our sins, and adopt us as your heritage.’

 

The Word of the Lord.

GOSPEL

 

A reading from the holy Gospel according to John    3:16-18

 

Jesus said to Nicodemus,
God loved the world so much
that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him
may not be lost but may have eternal life.

For God sent his Son into the world
not to condemn the world,
but so that through him the world might be saved.
No one who believes in him will be condemned;
but whoever refuses to believe is condemned already,
because he has refused to believe
in the name of God’s only Son.

 

The Gospel of the Lord.
