Let thy steadfast love come to me, O LORD, thy salvation according to thy promise; And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in thy ordinances.

Readings of the Day: Tuesday of the Twenty-eighth Week in Ordinary Time

Reading for the Day
Galatians 5:1-6

  • 1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand fast therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
  • 2 Now I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you.
  • 3 I testify again to every man who receives circumcision that he is bound to keep the whole law.
  • 4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.
  • 5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we wait for the hope of righteousness.
  • 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is of any avail, but faith working through love.

Gospel for the Day
Luke 11:37-41

  • 37 While he was speaking, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him; so he went in and sat at table.
  • 38 The Pharisee was astonished to see that he did not first wash before dinner.
  • 39 And the Lord said to him, "Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of extortion and wickedness.
  • 40 You fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside also?
  • 41 But give for alms those things which are within; and behold, everything is clean for you.
