Monday-Ordinary Time Week 30

R. (see Eph. 5:1) Behave like God as his very dear children.
1 Blessed the man who follows not
the counsel of the wicked
Nor walks in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the company of the insolent,
2 But delights in the law of the LORD
and meditates on his law day and night.
R. Behave like God as his very dear children.
3 He is like a tree
planted near running water,
That yields its fruit in due season,
and whose leaves never fade.
Whatever he does, prospers.
R. Behave like God as his very dear children.
4 Not so the wicked, not so;
they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
6 For the LORD watches over the way of the just,
but the way of the wicked vanishes.
R. Behave like God as his very dear children.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
17B Your word, O Lord, is truth;
17A consecrate us in the truth.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

10 Jesus was teaching in a synagogue on the sabbath.
11 And a woman was there who for eighteen years had been crippled by a spirit; she was bent over, completely incapable of standing erect.
12 When Jesus saw her, he called to her and said, “Woman, you are set free of your infirmity.”
13 He laid his hands on her, and she at once stood up straight and glorified God.
14 But the leader of the synagogue, indignant that Jesus had cured on the sabbath, said to the crowd in reply, “There are six days when work should be done. Come on those days to be cured, not on the sabbath day.”
15 The Lord said to him in reply, “Hypocrites! Does not each one of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his ass from the manger and lead it out for watering?
16 This daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound for eighteen years now, ought she not to have been set free on the sabbath day from this bondage?”
17 When he said this, all his adversaries were humiliated; and the whole crowd rejoiced at all the splendid deeds done by him.
