Friday of Week 28
Saint Gall, abbot and missionary; also of Saint Hedwig and Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, religious
First Reading: Romans 4: 1-8

1 What then can we say that Abraham found, our ancestor according to the flesh?

2 Indeed, if Abraham was justified on the basis of his works, he has reason to boast; but this was not so in the sight of God.

3 For what does the scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

4 A worker’s wage is credited not as a gift, but as something due.

5 But when one does not work, yet believes in the one who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness.

6 So also David declares the blessedness of the person to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

7 “Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered.

8 Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not record.”

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 32: 1b-2, 5, 11

1 Of David. A maskil. Happy the sinner whose fault is removed, whose sin is forgiven.

2 Happy those to whom the LORD imputes no guilt, in whose spirit is no deceit.

5 Then I declared my sin to you; my guilt I did not hide. I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,” and you took away the guilt of my sin. Selah

11 Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you just; exult, all you upright of heart.

Gospel: Luke 12: 1-7

1 Meanwhile, so many people were crowding together that they were trampling one another underfoot. He began to speak, first to his disciples, “Beware of the leaven–that is, the hypocrisy–of the Pharisees.

2 “There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.

3 Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed on the housetops.

4 I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body but after that can do no more.

5 I shall show you whom to fear. Be afraid of the one who after killing has the power to cast into Gehenna; yes, I tell you, be afraid of that one.

6 Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.

7 Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.
