Tuesday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time Brian Schoonover October 9, 2018 Daily Readings Reading 1 Gal 1:13-24 Brothers and sisters:You heard of my former way of life in Judaism,how I persecuted the Church of God beyond measureand tried to destroy it, and progressed in Judaismbeyond many of my contemporaries among my race,since I was even more a zealot for my ancestral traditions.But when he, who from my mother’s womb had set me apartand called me through his grace,was pleased to reveal his Son to me,so that I might proclaim him to the Gentiles,I did not immediately consult flesh and blood,nor did I go up to Jerusalemto those who were Apostles before me;rather, I went into Arabia and then returned to Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to confer with Cephasand remained with him for fifteen days.But I did not see any other of the Apostles,only James the brother of the Lord.(As to what I am writing to you, behold,before God, I am not lying.)Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.And I was unknown personally to the churches of Judeathat are in Christ;they only kept hearing that “the one who once was persecuting usis now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.”So they glorified God because of me. Responsorial Psalm Ps 139:1b-3, 13-14ab, 14c-15 R. (24b) Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.O LORD, you have probed me and you know me;you know when I sit and when I stand;you understand my thoughts from afar.My journeys and my rest you scrutinize,with all my ways you are familiar.R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.Truly you have formed my inmost being;you knit me in my mother’s womb.I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made;wonderful are your works.R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.My soul also you knew full well;nor was my frame unknown to youWhen I was made in secret,when I was fashioned in the depths of the earth.R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way. Alleluia Lk 11:28 R. Alleluia, alleluia.Blessed are those who hear the word of Godand observe it.R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel Lk 10:38-42 Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.She had a sister named Marywho sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said,“Lord, do you not carethat my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” The Lord said to her in reply,“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better partand it will not be taken from her.” – – – 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.
