Galatians 5:18-25; Luke 11:42-46

Wednesday, 28th Week of Ordinary Time, Year II
Readings on p.1360 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 5:18-25

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians

Brothers and sisters: But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are plain: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Psalm 1:1-2.3.4 and 6

R./ He who follows you, Lord, will have the light of life.

Blessed indeed is the man
who follows not the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the path with sinners,
nor abides in the company of scorners,
but whose delight is the law of the Lord,
and who ponders his law day and night.

He is like a tree that is planted
besides the flowing waters,
that yields its fruit in due season,
and whose leaves shall never fade;
and all that he does shall prosper.

Not so are the wicked, not so!
For they, like winnowed chaff,
shall be driven away by the wind,
for the Lord knows the way of the just,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

R./ He who follows you, Lord, will have the light of life.

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

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.
