First Reading

Ecclesiastes 1,2; 2,21-23

Sheer futility, Qoheleth says. Sheer futility: everything is futile!

For here is one who has laboured wisely, skilfully and successfully and must leave what is his own to someone who has not toiled for it at all. This is futile too, and grossly unjust;

for what does he gain for all the toil and strain that he has undergone under the sun-

since his days are full of sorrow, his work is full of stress and even at night he has no peace of mind? This is futile too.
