Romans 2:1-11; Luke 11:42-46

Twenty-Eighth Week in Ordinary Time, Year 1.
Readings on p. 1361 and Antiphons on p. 1350 of the 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: Romans 2:1-11

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans.

You have no excuse, O man, whoever you are
when you judge another;
for in passing judgment upon him you condemn yourself,
because you, the judge, are doing the very same things.
We know that the judgment of God
rightly falls upon those who do such things.
Do you suppose, O man,
that when you judge those who do such things
and yet do them yourself,
you will escape the judgment of God?
Or do you presume upon the riches of his kindness
and forbearance and patience?
Do you not know that God’s kindness
is meant to lead you to repentance?
But by your hard and impenitent heart,
you are storing up wrath for yourself
on the day of wrath
when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.
For he will render to every person according to his works:
to those who by patience in well-doing
seek for glory and honour and immortality,
he will give eternal life;
but for those who are factious and do not obey the truth,
but obey wickedness,
there will be wrath and fury.

There will be tribulation and distress
for every human being who does evil,
the Jew first and also the Greek,
but glory and honour and peace for everyone who does good,
the Jew first and also the Greek.
For God shows no partiality.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 62:2-3.6-7.9 (R. 13bc)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. O Lord, you repay each man according to his deeds.

In God alone is my soul at rest;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock, my salvation,
my fortress; never shall I falter.

In God alone be at rest, my soul,
for my hope is from him.
He alone is my rock, my salvation,
my fortress; never shall I falter.

Trust him at all times, O people.
Pour out your hearts before him,
for God is our refuge.

R/. O Lord, you repay each man according to his deeds.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, alleluia.
My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
and I know them and they follow me.



Gospel: Luke 11:42-46

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said, “Woe to you Pharisees!
for you tithe mint and rue and every herb,
and neglect justice and the love of God;
these you ought to have done,
without neglecting the others.
Woe to you Pharisees!
for you love the best seat in the synagogues
and salutations in the market places.
Woe to you!
for you are like graves which are not seen,
and people walk over them without knowing it.”

One of the lawyers answered him,
“Teacher, in saying this you reproach us also.”
And he said, “Woe to you lawyers also!
for you load people with burdens hard to bear,
and you yourselves do not touch the burdens
with one of your fingers.

The Gospel of the Lord.

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