Readings of the day

First Reading: 2 Corinthians 9:6-10

Gospel: John 12:24-26

In those days: Jesus told his disciples: “Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 

Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour. ”

Saint of the day: St Lawrence, deacon and martyr
