Galatians 1:6-12; Luke 10:25-37

Monday, 27th Week of Ordinary Time, Year II
Readings on p.1335 of Daily Missal 

Entrance antiphon:
Within your will, O Lord, all things are established and there is none that can resist your will. For you have made all things, the heaven and the earth, and all that is held within the circle of heaven; you are the Lord of all.

First Reading: Galatians 1:6-12

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians

Brothers and sisters: I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel – not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let them be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let them be accursed. Am I now seeking the favour of people, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still pleasing people, I should not be a servant of Christ. For I would have you know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel which was preached by me is not man’s gospel. For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Ps 111:1b-2.7-8.9 and 10c

R./  The Lord keeps his covenant ever in mind.

I will praise the Lord with all my heart,
in the meeting of the just and the assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord,
to be pondered by all who delight in them.

His handiwork is justice and truth;
his precepts are all of them sure,
standing firm forever and ever.,
wrought in uprightness and truth.

He has sent redemption to his people,
and established his covenant forever.
Holy his name, to be feared.
His praise endures forever!

R./  The Lord keeps his covenant ever in mind.

 

Gospel acclamation:
Alleluia. Alleluia. The Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Alleluia.

Gospel: Luke 10:25-37

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time: Behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered right; do this, and you will live.” But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbour?” Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was; and when he saw him, he had compassion, and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; then he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’ Which of these three, do you think, proved neighbour to the man who fell among the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed mercy on him.” And Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon: Lam 3:25
The Lord is good to those who hope in him, to the soul that seeks him.
