A reading from the first letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians

Brothers and Sisters:

Christ has been raised from the dead,
  the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For since death came through a man,
  the resurrection of the dead
  came also through a man.
For just as in Adam all die,
  so too in Christ shall all be brought to life,
  but each one in proper order:
  Christ the firstfruits;
  then, at his coming, those who belong to Christ;
then comes the end,
  when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father,
  when he has destroyed every sovereignty
    and every authority and power.
For he must reign until he has put all his enemies
  under his feet.
The last enemy to be destroyed is death,
  for “he subjected everything under his feet.”
But when it says that everything has been subjected,
  it is clear that it excludes
  the one who subjected everything to him.
When everything is subjected to him,
  then the Son himself will also be subjected
  to the one who subjected everything to him,
  so that God may be all in all.

The word of the Lord
