1 st Reading: Daniel 12:1-3
The Resurrection of the Dead
1    ‘At    that    time    Michael,    the    great    prince,    the
protector   of   your   people,   shall   arise.   There   shall   be   a
time   of   anguish,   such   as   has   never   occurred   since
nations   first   came   into   existence.   But   at   that   time
your    people    shall    be    delivered,    everyone    who    is
found   written   in   the   book. 2 Many   of   those   who   sleep
in    the    dust    of    the    earth *    shall    awake,    some    to
everlasting   life,   and   some   to   shame   and   everlasting
contempt. 3 Those   who   are   wise   shall   shine   like   the
brightness   of   the   sky, *   and   those   who   lead   many   to
righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 2nd Reading: Hebrews 10:11-14 (15-18) 19-25 11 And every priest stands day after day at his service, offering again and again the same sacrifices that can never take away sins. 12 But when Christ * had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, ‘he sat down at the right hand of God’, 13 and since then has been waiting ‘until his enemies would be made a footstool for his feet.’ 14 For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying, 16 ‘This is the covenant that I will make with themafter those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds’, 17 he also adds,‘I will remember * their sins and their lawless deeds no more.’ 18 Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin. 19 Therefore, my friends, * since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, 20 by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain (that is, through his flesh), 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Gospel: Mark 13:1-8
The Destruction of the Temple Foretold
1 As    he    came    out    of    the    temple,    one    of    his
disciples    said    to    him,    ‘Look,    Teacher,    what
large   stones   and   what   large   buildings!’ 2 Then
Jesus    asked    him,    ‘Do    you    see    these    great
buildings?   Not   one   stone   will   be   left   here   upon
another;   all   will   be   thrown   down.’ 3 When   he
was   sitting   on   the   Mount   of   Olives   opposite   the
temple,   Peter,   James,   John,   and   Andrew   asked
him   privately, 4 ‘Tell   us,   when   will   this   be,   and
what   will   be   the   sign   that   all   these   things   are
about   to   be   accomplished?’ 5 Then   Jesus   began
to   say   to   them,   ‘Beware   that   no   one   leads   you
astray. 6 Many   will   come   in   my   name   and   say,   “I
am   he!” *   and   they   will   lead   many   astray. 7 When
you   hear   of   wars   and   rumours   of   wars,   do   not
be   alarmed;   this   must   take   place,   but   the   end   is
still    to    come. 8 For    nation    will    rise    against
nation,    and    kingdom    against    kingdom;    there
will   be   earthquakes   in   various   places;   there   will
be   famines.   This   is   but   the   beginning   of   the
birth pangs.

The Resurrection of the Dead

1 ‘At that time Michael, the great prince,

the protector of your people, shall arise.

There shall be a time of anguish, such as

has never occurred since nations first

came into existence. But at that time

your people shall be delivered, everyone

who is found written in the book. 2

Many of those who sleep in the dust of

the earth shall awake, some to

everlasting life, and some to shame and

everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are

wise shall shine like the brightness of the

sky, and those who lead many to

righteousness, like the stars for ever and
