Galatians 3:1-5; Luke 11:5-13

Thursday, 27th Week of Ordinary Time, Year II
Readings on p.1343 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 3:1-5

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians

O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun with the Spirit, are you now ending with the flesh? Did you experience so many things in vain? -if it really is in vain. Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith?

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Luke 1:69-70.71-72.73-75

R/. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited his people.

He has raised up a horn of salvation for us
in the house of his servant David,
as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets
from of old.

That we should be saved from our enemies,
and from the hand of all who hate us;
to perform the mercy promised to our fathers,
and to remember his holy covenant.

The oath which he swore to our father Abraham, to grant us
that we, being delivered from the hand of your enemies,
might serve him without fear,
in holiness and righteousness before him
all the days of our life.

R/. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited his people.

Gospel acclamation:

Gospel: Luke 11:5-13

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples, “Which of you who has a friend will go to them at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything’? I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him whatever he needs. And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

The Gospel of the Lord.

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