Reading 3, 1 Cor1:4-9 : Grace of God which is given to us in Jesus Christ
|1 Corinthians 1
||I give thanks to God always for you because of the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus,
||that in every way you were enriched in him with all speech and all knowledge --
||even as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you --
||so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ;
||who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
||God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Gospel, Lk 7:11-17 : Great Prophet amidst us
||Soon afterward he went to a city called Na'in, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him.
||As he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her.
||And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep."
||And he came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, arise."
||And the dead man sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother.
||Fear seized them all; and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has arisen among us!" and "God has visited his people!"
||And this report concerning him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.
