Friday of Misericordias Domini (Easter 3)

First Reading: Ex. 39:32-40:16

 32Thus all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was finished, and the people of Israel did(A) according to all that the LORD had commanded Moses; so they did. 33Then they brought the tabernacle to Moses, the tent and all its utensils, its hooks, its frames, its bars, its pillars, and its bases; 34the covering of tanned rams’ skins and goatskins, and the(B) veil of the screen; 35the ark of the testimony with its poles and the mercy seat; 36the table with all its utensils, and the bread of the Presence; 37(C) the lampstand of pure gold and its lamps with the lamps set and all its utensils, and the oil for the light; 38(D) the golden altar, the anointing oil and the fragrant incense, and(E) the screen for the entrance of the tent; 39the bronze altar, and its grating of bronze, its poles, and all its utensils; the basin and its stand; 40(F) the hangings of the court, its pillars, and its bases, and the(G) screen for the gate of the court, its(H) cords, and its pegs; and all the utensils for the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of meeting; 41the finely worked garments for ministering in the Holy Place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons for their service as priests. 42(I) According to all that the LORD had commanded Moses, so the people of Israel had done all the work. 43And Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it; as the LORD had commanded, so had they done it. Then Moses(J) blessed them.

The Tabernacle Erected
 1The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2"On the(K) first day of the first month you shall(L) erect the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. 3And you shall put in it the ark of the testimony, and you shall(M) screen the ark with the veil. 4And(N) you shall bring in the table and arrange it, and(O) you shall bring in the lampstand and set up its lamps. 5(P) And you shall put the golden altar for incense before the ark of the testimony, and set up the screen for the door of the tabernacle. 6(Q) You shall set the altar of burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, 7(R) and place the basin between the tent of meeting and the altar, and put water in it. 8And you shall set up the court all around, and hang up the screen for the gate of the court.

 9"Then you shall take the(S) anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and consecrate it and all its furniture, so that it may become holy. 10You shall also anoint(T) the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar,(U) so that the altar may become most holy. 11You shall also anoint the basin and its stand, and consecrate it. 12(V) Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance of the tent of meeting and shall wash them with water 13and put on Aaron the holy garments. And you shall anoint him and consecrate him, that he may serve me as priest. 14You shall bring his sons also and put coats on them, 15(W) and anoint them, as you anointed their father, that they may serve me as priests. And their anointing shall admit them to a(X) perpetual priesthood throughout their generations."

 16This Moses did; according to all that the LORD commanded him, so he did.

Second Reading: Lk. 8:22-39

Jesus Calms a Storm

 22(A) One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side of(B) the lake." So they set out, 23and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on(C) the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. 24And they went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" And he awoke and(D) rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased,(E) and there was a calm. 25He said to them, "Where is your faith?" And they(F) were afraid, and they(G) marveled, saying to one another, "Who then is this, that(H) he commands even winds and water, and they obey him?"

Jesus Heals a Man with a Demon

 26(I) Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes,[a] which is opposite Galilee. 27When Jesus[b] had stepped out on land, there met him a man from the city who had demons. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he had not lived in a house(J) but among the tombs. 28When he saw Jesus, he(K) cried out and fell down before him and said(L) with a loud voice, "What have you to do with me, Jesus,(M) Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me." 29For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many a time it had seized him. He was kept under guard and bound with chains and shackles, but he would break the bonds and be driven by the demon(N) into the desert.) 30Jesus then asked him, "What is your name?" And he said,(O) "Legion," for many demons had entered him. 31And they begged him not to command them to depart into(P) the abyss. 32Now a large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, and they begged him to let them enter these. So he gave them permission. 33Then the demons came out of the man and entered the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into(Q) the lake and were drowned.

 34When the herdsmen saw what had happened, they fled and told it in the city and in the country. 35Then people went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus and found the man from whom the demons had gone, sitting(R) at the feet of Jesus,(S) clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid. 36And those who had seen it told them how the demon-possessed[c] man had been healed. 37Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes(T) asked him to depart from them, for they were seized with great fear. So he got into the boat and returned. 38The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, 39"Return to your home, and(U) declare how much God has done for you." And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.
