Reading of the Gospel

Praise to you, o Lord, King of eternal glory

Yesterday I was buried with Christ,
today I rise with you who are risen.
With you I was crucified;
remember me, Lord, in your kingdom.

Praise to you, o Lord, King of eternal glory

Luke 4, 1-13

Filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the desert,

for forty days being put to the test by the devil. During that time he ate nothing and at the end he was hungry.

Then the devil said to him, 'If you are Son of God, tell this stone to turn into a loaf.'

But Jesus replied, 'Scripture says: Human beings live not on bread alone.'

Then leading him to a height, the devil showed him in a moment of time all the kingdoms of the world

and said to him, 'I will give you all this power and their splendour, for it has been handed over to me, for me to give it to anyone I choose.

Do homage, then, to me, and it shall all be yours.'

But Jesus answered him, 'Scripture says: You must do homage to the Lord your God, him alone you must serve.'

Then he led him to Jerusalem and set him on the parapet of the Temple. 'If you are Son of God,' he said to him, 'throw yourself down from here,

for scripture says: He has given his angels orders about you, to guard you, and again:

They will carry you in their arms in case you trip over a stone.'

But Jesus answered him, 'Scripture says: Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'

Having exhausted every way of putting him to the test, the devil left him, until the opportune moment.

 

Praise to you, o Lord, King of eternal glory

Yesterday I was buried with Christ,
today I rise with you who are risen.
With you I was crucified;
remember me, Lord, in your kingdom.

Praise to you, o Lord, King of eternal glory
