Readings of the day: Friday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us -- for it is written, "Cursed be every one who hangs on a tree"

Readings of the day: Friday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time

Reading for the dy
Galatians 3:7-14

  • 7 So you see that it is men of faith who are the sons of Abraham.
  • 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "In you shall all the nations be blessed."
  • 9 So then, those who are men of faith are blessed with Abraham who had faith.
  • 10 For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be every one who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, and do them."
  • 11 Now it is evident that no man is justified before God by the law; for "He who through faith is righteous shall live";
    12 but the law does not rest on faith, for "He who does them shall live by them."
  • 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us -- for it is written, "Cursed be every one who hangs on a tree" --
  • 14 that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 111:1-6

Response: The Lord will remember his covenant for ever.

  • 1 Praise the LORD. I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
  • 2 Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who have pleasure in them.
  • 3 Full of honor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures for ever.
  • 4 He has caused his wonderful works to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and merciful.
  • 5 He provides food for those who fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant.
  • 6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the heritage of the nations.

Gospel for the day
Luke 11:15-26

  • 15 But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Be-el'zebul, the prince of demons";
  • 16 while others, to test him, sought from him a sign from heaven.
  • 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls.
  • 18 And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out demons by Be-el'zebul.
  • 19 And if I cast out demons by Be-el'zebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.
  • 20 But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
  • 21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace;
  • 22 but when one stronger than he assails him and overcomes him, he takes away his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoil.
  • 23 He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.
  • 24 "When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places seeking rest; and finding none he says, `I will return to my house from which I came.'
  • 25 And when he comes he finds it swept and put in order.
  • 26 Then he goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first."
