Labor Day

September 2, 2013: Monday, 22nd week, Ordinary Time (and Labor Day)

Readings
  • 1 Thes 4:13-18  Hope; don't grieve:  God will raise the dead.  Lord will come; the dead will rise; we'll meet the Lord.
  • Ps 96:1, 3-5, 11-13  "The Lord comes to judge the earth."  Sing to Lord; tell wonders; let heavens, earth, sea, plains, trees exult.  Lord is great, awesome, praiseworthy; made heavens; comes to rule earth with justice.
  • Lk 4:16-30  Jesus went into synagogue, read Isaiah:  "Lord's Spirit is upon me, anointed/sent me to the poor, captives, blind, oppressed. "  “Today this is fulfilled in your hearing.”  “No prophet is accepted in his native place."  Fury-filled people drove him out, tried to hurl him; he passed through and went away.
