FIRST READING

.ROMANS 6:3-11

A READING FROM THE LETTER OF SAINT PAUL TO THE ROMANS

(CHRIST, HAVING BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD, WILL NEVER DIE AGAIN.)

When we were baptised in Christ Jesus

we were baptised in his death, 

in other words,

when we were baptised

we went into the tomb with him

and joined him in death,

so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glory,

we too might live a new life.

If in union with Christ we have imitated  his death, 

we shall also imitate him in his resurrection.

We must realise that our former selves

have been crucified with him

to destroy this sinful body

and to free us from the slavery of sin.

When a man dies,

of course,

he has  finished with sin.

But we believe

that having died with Christ

we shall return to life with him:

Christ, 

as we know,

having been raised from the dead

will never die again.

Death has no power over him any more. 

When he died,

he died,

once for all,

to sin,

so his life now

is life with God;

and in that way,

you too must consider yourselves to be dead to sin

but alive for God in Christ Jesus.

The word of the Lord.

R.) Thanks be to God.
