Première lecture

Lecture de la troisième lettre de saint Jean
(3 Jn 5-8)


tu agis fidèlement
dans ce que tu fais pour les frères,
et particulièrement pour des étrangers.
En présence de l’Église,
ils ont rendu témoignage à ta charité ;
tu feras bien de faciliter leur voyage
d’une manière digne de Dieu.
Car c’est pour son nom
qu’ils se sont mis en route sans rien recevoir des païens.
Nous devons donc apporter notre soutien à de tels hommes
pour être des collaborateurs de la vérité.

Parole de Dieu


A reading from the third Letter of John
3 JN 5-8


Beloved, you are faithful in all you do for the brothers and sisters,
especially for strangers;
they have testified to your love before the Church.
Please help them in a way worthy of God to continue their journey.
For they have set out for the sake of the Name
and are accepting nothing from the pagans.
Therefore, we ought to support such persons,
so that we may be co-workers in the truth.

The word of the God.

Psalm 111, 1-2. 3-4. 5-6

From the Gospel according to Luke
LK 18:1-8


Jesus told his disciples a parable
about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
He said, “There was a judge in a certain town
who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
because this widow keeps bothering me
I shall deliver a just decision for her
lest she finally come and strike me.’”
The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
who call out to him day and night?
Will he be slow to answer them?
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

Lord’s word.


Born in London in 1179, Serapion is said to have taken part in the third Crusade, under the leadership of Richard the Lion-hearted. He eventually joined the Mercedarian order, and dedicated himself to the redemption and conversion of slaves, whom he freed by the hundreds. He was martyred in 1240.
