(Week 26 of the year: Friday)
ANYONE WHO REJECTS ME REJECTS THE ONE WHO SENT ME.
Jesus said to his disciples: “Alas for you, Chorazin! Alas for you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. And still, it will not go as hard with Tyre and Sidon at the Judgement as with you. And as for you, Capernaum, did you want to be exalted as high as heaven? You shall be thrown down to hell.
“Anyone who listens to you listens to me; anyone who rejects you rejects me, and those who reject me reject the one who sent me.”
V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
