Monday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time (II)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Galatians 1.6-12

Brothers and sisters:
I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ
for a different gospel, not that there is another gospel.
But there are some who trouble you, and want to pervert the Gospel of Christ.
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preached to you any gospel
other than that which we have preached to you,
let him be cursed.
As we have said before, so I now say again:
if anyone preaches to you any gospel other than that which you received,
let him be excommunicated.

Am I now seeking the favor of humans or of God?
Am I striving to please humans?
For if I were trying to please humans, I would not be a slave of Christ.

I make known to you, brothers and sisters,
concerning the Gospel which was preached by me,
that it does not come from humans.
Nor did I receive it from a human, nor was I taught it,
but it was through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

Responsorial – Psalm 111.1b-2, 7-8, 9+10c Resp. 5

R. The Lord always remembers his covenant. or R. Alleluia!

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the council of the upright, and in the congregation.
The works of the Lord are great,
pondered by all who delight in them.

R. The Lord always remembers his covenant. or R. Alleluia!

The works of his hands are truth and justice.
All his precepts are sure.
They are established forever and ever.
They are done in truth and uprightness.

R. The Lord always remembers his covenant. or R. Alleluia!

He has sent redemption to his people.
He has ordained his covenant forever.
His name is holy and awesome!
His praise endures forever!

R. The Lord always remembers his covenant. or R. Alleluia!

Gospel – Luke 10.25-37

There was a scholar of the law who stood up and tested Jesus, saying,
“Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”
Jesus said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you read it?”
He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind;
and your neighbor as yourself.”
He said to him, “You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live.”

But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbor?”
Jesus answered, “A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him,
and departed, leaving him half dead.
By chance there was a priest going down that way.
When he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
In the same way a Levite also,
when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side.
But there was a Samaritan traveling, who came where he was.
When he saw him, he was moved with compassion,
came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine.
He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii,
and gave them to the host, and said to him,
‘Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.’
Now which of these three in your opinion was a neighbor to the robbers’ victim?”
He said, “He who showed mercy to him.”
Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”
