TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 12:8-12)

WHEN THE TIME COMES, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL TEACH YOU WHAT YOU MUST SAY. 

Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you, if anyone openly declares himself for me in the presence of men, the Son of Man will declare himself for him in the presence of God’s angels.

But the man who disowns me in the presence of men will be disowned in the presence of God’s angels. “Everyone who says a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

“When they take you before synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how to defend yourselves or what to say, because when the time comes, the Holy Spirit will teach you what you must say.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

FEAST OF ST LUKE, EVANGELIST; GOSPEL READING (LUKE 10:1-9)

FEAST OF ST LUKE, EVANGELIST; GOSPEL READING (LUKE 10:1-9)

THE HARVEST IS RICH BUT THE LABOURERS ARE FEW. 

The Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them out ahead of him, in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself was to visit. He said to them, “The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send labourers to his harvest. Start off now, but remember, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Carry no purse, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road.

Whatever house you go into, let your first words be, ‘Peace to this house!’ And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him; if not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house, taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the labourer deserves his wages; do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is set before you. Cure those in it who are sick, and say, ‘The kingdom of God is very near to you.’”

GIVE ALMS AND THEN INDEED EVERYTHING WILL BE CLEAN FOR YOU. 

Jesus had just finished speaking when a Pharisee invited him to dine at his house. He went and sat down at the table. The Pharisee saw this and was surprised that he had not first washed before the meal.

But the Lord said to him, “Oh, you Pharisees! You clean the outside of cup and plate, while inside yourselves you are filled with extortion and wickedness. Fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside too? Instead, give alms from what you have and then indeed everything will be clean for you.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

THE ONLY SIGN GIVEN TO THIS GENERATION IS THE SIGN OF JONAH. 

The crowds got even bigger and Jesus addressed them, “This is a wicked generation; it is asking for a sign. The only sign it will be given is the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.

On Judgement day the Queen of the South will rise up with the men of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and there is something greater than Solomon here. On Judgement day the men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation and condemn it, because when Jonah preached they repented; and there is something greater than Jonah here.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 17:11-19)

On the way to Jerusalem Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered one of the villages, ten lepers came to meet him. They stood some way off and called to him, “Jesus! Master! Take pity on us.”

When he saw them he said, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” Now as they were going away they were cleansed. Finding himself cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice and threw himself at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan.

This made Jesus say, “Were not all ten made clean? The other nine, where are they? It seems that no one has come back to give praise to God, except this foreigner.” And he said to the man, “Stand up and go your way. Your faith has saved you.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
