Readings Monday Week 28 Ordinary Time

First Reading
Rom 1:16-25

Through Christ Jesus we have received the grace of apostleship,to bring about the obedience of faith among the Gentiles.

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

Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus,
   called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God,
   which he promised previously through his prophets in the holy scriptures,
   the Gospel about his Son, descended from David according to the flesh,
   but established as Son of God in power
   according to the spirit of holiness
   through resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Through him we have received the grace of apostleship,
   to bring about the obedience of faith,
   for the sake of his name, among all the Gentiles,
   among whom are you also, who are called to belong to Jesus Christ;
   to all the beloved of God in Rome, called to be holy.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father
   and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Gospel
Lk 11:29-32

This generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it, except the sign of Jonah.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

While still more people gathered in the crowd, Jesus said to them,
“This generation is an evil generation;
   it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it,
   except the sign of Jonah.
Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites,
   so will the Son of Man be to this generation.
At the judgment
   the queen of the south will rise with the men of this generation
   and she will condemn them,
   because she came from the ends of the earth
   to hear the wisdom of Solomon,
   and there is something greater than Solomon here.
At the judgment the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation
   and condemn it,
   because at the preaching of Jonah they repented,
   and there is something greater than Jonah here.”

At the end of the Gospel, the Deacon, or the Priest, acclaims:

The Gospel of the Lord.

All reply:

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Then he kisses the book, saying quietly:

Through the words of the Gospel
may our sins be wiped away.
