Old Testament Reading 7
A reading from the Book of Daniel     12: 1-3

I, Daniel, mourned and I heard this word of the Lord:
"At that time there shall arise Michael,
the great prince, guardian of your people;
It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress
since nations began until that time.
At that time your people shall escape,
everyone who is found written in the book.
Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake;
some shall live forever,
others shall be an everlasting horror and disgrace.
But the wise shall shine brightly like the splendour of the firmament,
and those who lead the many to justice
shall be like the stars forever.

This is the word of the Lord
