Oct. 5: Friday of the 26th Week in Ordinary Time, Year I

Master of Evert Zoudenbalch, The People including Ezekiel are Deported to Babylon, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, 1435

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Baruch 1:15-22
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 79:1-2, 3-5, 8, 9
Gospel: Luke 10:13-16

"Justice is with the Lord, our God; and we today are flushed with shame (NAB, Baruch 1:15a).”

Let us pray.

Father, whenever we forget you and the great gift that you share with us in bestowing your own life upon us, inevitably we surrender to sin. With you we can accomplish everything that needs to be done but without you we can do nothing. We are covered in shame. May we turn back from our sinful ways, accept your forgiveness always offered, and once again grow in your divine life.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen
