1st Reading - Revelation 7,2-4.9-14
Reading the book of revelation of St. John - I, John, saw 2 other Angel, which climbed on the side where the sun rises, he would bring the mark of God alive and screaming in a loud voice, to the four angels who had received the power to damage the land and the sea , telling them: 3 "hurt Not the Earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have marked on the forehead the servants of our God." 4 I heard so the number of those who had been marked: were 144,000, of all the tribes of the children of Israel. 9 after that, I saw a crowd of people of all Nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, which no one could count. Stood before the throne and to the Lamb; trajavam white robes and brought palms on hand. 10 All proclaimed with strong voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne and to the lamb." 11 all the Angels were standing around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and prostravam, with his face to the Earth, before the throne. And worshipped the God, saying: 12 "Amen. Praise and glory and wisdom and Thanksgiving, honour, power and power belong to our God forever. Amen ". 13 and one of elders spoke to me and asked: "Who are these, clothed with white clothes? Where did they come from? " 14 I answered: "whatever you say, my Lord." And then he told me: "These are the ones that came of the great tribulation. Washed and targeted his clothes in the blood of the Lamb ". -The word of the Lord.

Refletindo o Evangelho
Ao Senhor pertence a terra e o que ela encerra, / o mundo inteiro com os seres que o povoam; / porque ele a tornou firme sobre os mares / e, sobre as águas, a mantém inabalável. “Quem subirá até o monte do Senhor, / quem ficará em sua santa habitação?” / “Quem tem mãos puras e inocente coração, / quem não dirige sua mente para o crime. Sobre este desce a bênção do Senhor / e a recompensa de seu Deus e salvador.” / “É assim a geração dos que o procuram / e do Deus de Israel buscam a face.” Salmo 23/24.
