Galatians 4:22-24.26-27.31-5:1; Luke 11:29-32

Monday, 28th Week of Ordinary Time, Year II
Readings on p.1357 of Daily Missal

Entrance antiphon:
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?  But with you is found forgiveness, O God of Israel.

First Reading: Galatians 4:22-24.26-27.31-5:1

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians

Brothers and sisters: It is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave and one by a free woman. But the son of the slave was born according to the flesh, the son of the free woman through promise. Now this is an allegory: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar. But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.For it is written, “Rejoice, O barren one that dost not bear; break forth and shout, you who art not with labour pains; for the desolate hath more childrenthan she who has a husband.” So, brothers ad sisters, we are not children of the slave but of the free woman. For freedom Christ has set us free; stand fast therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Ps 113:1b-2.3-4.5a and 6-7

R./ May the name of the Lord be blest forevermore.

Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
May the name of the Lord be blest
both now and forevermore!

From the rising of the sun to its setting,
praised be the name of the Lord!
High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens his glory.

Who is like the Lord, our God,
who lowers himself to look down
upon heaven and earth?
From the dust he lifts up the lowly,
from the ash heap he raised the poor.

R./ May the name of the Lord be blest forevermore.

Gospel acclamation:
Alleluia. Alleluia. Today, harden not your hearts, but listen to the voice of the Lord. Alleluia.

Gospel: Luke 11:29-32

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time: When the crowds were increasing, Jesus began to say, “This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so will the Son of man be to this generation. The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. The people of Nineveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon
The rich suffer want and go hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no blessing.
