Gospel: Matthew 11:16-19
Now, to what can I compare the people of this day? They are like children sitting in the marketplace,
about whom their companions complain: ‘We played the flute for you, but you would not dance.
We sang a funeral song, but you would not cry!’
For John came fasting, and people said, ‘He is possessed by a demon!’ Then, the Son of Man came.
Gospel: Matthew 11:11-15
I tell you this: no one greater than John the Baptist has arisen from among the sons of women;

In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God, to a town of Galilee called Nazareth.
He was sent to a virgin, who was betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the family of David;

One day, Jesus was teaching, and many Pharisees and teachers of the law had come from every part of Galilee and Judea,
and even from Jerusalem. They were sitting there, while the power of the Lord was at work to heal the sick.
Then some men brought a paralyzed man who lay on his mat. They tried to enter the house to place him before Jesus,
but they couldn’t find a way through the crowd. So they went up on the roof, and, removing the tiles,
Gospel: Mark 1:1-8
This is the beginning of the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
It is written in the book of Isaiah, the prophet, “I am sending my messenger ahead of you, to prepare your way.
Let the people hear the voice calling in the desert: Prepare the way of the Lord, level his paths.”
So John began to baptize in the desert; he preached a baptism of repentance, for the forgiveness of sins.
Gospel: Matthew 9:35 – 10:1, 5a, 6-8
Jesus went around all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom;
and he cured every sickness and disease. When he saw the crowds, he was moved with pity; for they were harassed and helpless,

Ask the master of the harvest to send workers to gather his harvest.” Jesus called his Twelve disciples to him,
Gospel: Matthew 9:27-31
As Jesus moved on from there, two blind men followed him, shouting, “Son of David, help us!”

They answered, “Yes, sir!”
Gospel: Matthew 7:21, 24-27
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,

is like a wise man, who built his house on rock. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded,

From there, Jesus went to the shore of Lake Galilee, and then went up into the hills, where he sat down.
Great crowds came to him, bringing the dumb, the blind, the lame, the crippled, and many with other infirmities.
People carried them to the feet of Jesus, and he healed them. All were astonished when they saw the dumb speaking,
the lame walking, the crippled healed, and the blind able to see; and they glorified the God of Israel.
Gospel: Luke 10:21-24
At that time, Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, and said,
“I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for you have hidden these things from the wise and learned,

I have been given all things by my Father, so that no one knows the Son except the Father,

Be alert and watch, for you don’t know when the time will come.

So stay awake, for you don’t know when the Lord of the house will come, in the evening
Gospel: Luke 21:34-36
Be on your guard: don’t immerse yourselves in a life of pleasure, drunkenness and worldly cares,
lest that day catch you unaware, like a trap! For, like a snare, will that day come upon
all the inhabitants of the earth. But watch at all times and pray, that you may be able
to escape all that is going to happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
