Reading 3, 1 Jn 5: 13-21 : Those who are born of God do not sin.

13I write this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.

14And this is the confidence which we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

15And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of him.

16If any one sees his brother committing what is not a mortal sin, he will ask, and God will give him life for those whose sin is not mortal. There is sin which is mortal; I do not say that one is to pray for that.

17All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin which is not mortal.

18We know that any one born of God does not sin, but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

19We know that we are of God, and the whole world is in the power of the evil one.

20And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, to know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

21Little children, keep yourselves from idols.




Gospel, Jn 8: 39-47 : One who is from God listens to the Word of God.

39They answered him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do what Abraham did,

40but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth which I heard from God; this is not what Abraham did.

41You do what your father did." They said to him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God."

42Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord, but he sent me.

43Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word.

44You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

45But, because I tell the truth, you do not believe me.

46Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?

47He who is of God hears the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God."
