Tuesday of the Thirty-first Week in Ordinary Time Brian Schoonover November 6, 2018 Daily Readings Reading 1 Phil 2:5-11 Brothers and sisters:Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God,did not regard equality with Godsomething to be grasped.Rather, he emptied himself,taking the form of a slave,coming in human likeness;and, found human in appearance,he humbled himself,becoming obedient to death,even death on a cross.Because of this, God greatly exalted himand bestowed on him the namethat is above every name,that at the name of Jesusevery knee should bend,of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth,and every tongue confess thatJesus Christ is Lord,to the glory of God the Father.

Gospel Lk 14:15-24 One of those at table with Jesus said to him,“Blessed is the one who will dine in the Kingdom of God.”He replied to him,“A man gave a great dinner to which he invited many.When the time for the dinner came,he dispatched his servant to say to those invited,‘Come, everything is now ready.’But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves.The first said to him,‘I have purchased a field and must go to examine it;I ask you, consider me excused.’And another said, ‘I have purchased five yoke of oxenand am on my way to evaluate them;I ask you, consider me excused.’And another said, ‘I have just married a woman,and therefore I cannot come.’The servant went and reported this to his master.Then the master of the house in a rage commanded his servant,‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the townand bring in here the poor and the crippled, the blind and the lame.’The servant reported, ‘Sir, your orders have been carried outand still there is room.’The master then ordered the servant,‘Go out to the highways and hedgerowsand make people come in that my home may be filled.For, I tell you, none of those men who were invited will taste my dinner.'” – – – Lectionary for Mass for Use in the Dioceses of the United States, second typical edition, Copyright Â© 2001, 1998, 1997, 1986, 1970 Confraternity of Christian Doctrine; Psalm refrain Â© 1968, 1981, 1997, International Committee on English in the Liturgy, Inc.
