Readings of the day

First Reading: Rom 4: 13. 16-18
Psalm: 104 (105): 6-7.8-9.42-43

Gospel: Lk 12: 8-12

In those days, Jesus told his disciples: “And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; but whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. 

When they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you are to defend yourselves or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very hour what you ought to say.”

Saint of the day: Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, virgin
