Readings of the day: Twenty-eighth Monday in Ordinary Time

Reading for the Day
Galatians 4:22-24, 26-27, 31--5:1

  • 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave and one by a free woman.
  • 23 But the son of the slave was born according to the flesh, the son of the free woman through promise.
  • 24 Now this is an allegory: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar.
  • 26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.
  • 27 For it is written, "Rejoice, O barren one who does not bear; break forth and shout, you who are not in travail; for the children of the desolate one are many more than the children of her that is married."
  • 31 So, brethren, we are not children of the slave but of the free woman.
  • 1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand fast therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

Gospel for the Day
Luke 11:29-32

  • 29 When the crowds were increasing, he began to say, "This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah.
  • 30 For as Jonah became a sign to the men of Nin'eveh, so will the Son of man be to this generation.
  • 31 The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.
  • 32 The men of Nin'eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
