Second Reading No. 1 Romans 5:5-11

Funeral Resources - Funerals - Second Readings New Testament


A Reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans

 

Brothers and sisters: 

Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.  For Christ, while we were still helpless, died at the appointed time for the ungodly.  Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die.

But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.  How much more then, since we are now justified by his Blood,will we be saved through him from the wrath.  Indeed, if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, once reconciled, will we be saved by his life.  Not only that, but we also boast of God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

The word of the Lord.

A Reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans

 

Brothers and sisters:  If, by the transgression of the one, death came to reign through that one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of justification come to reign in life through the one Jesus Christ.  In conclusion, just as through one transgression condemnation came upon all, so, through one righteous act, acquittal and life came to all.  For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so through the obedience of the one the many will be made righteous. The law entered in so that transgression might increase but, where sin increased, grace overflowed all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace might also reign through justification for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

The Word of the Lord.

A Reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans

 

Brothers and sisters:

Are you unaware that we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?  We were indeed buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life.  For if we have grown into union with Him through a death like His, we shall also be united with Him in the resurrection.

We know that our old self was crucified with Him, so that our sinful body might be done away with, that we might no longer be in slavery to sin.  For a dead person has been absolved from sin.  If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him.  We know that Christ, raised from the dead, dies no more; death no longer has power over Him. 

The Word of the Lord.
