Stand in the fear of God and listen to the Holy Gospel.
A reading from the Gospel according to our teacher Saint Matthew the Evangelist.
May His Blessings be with us all.
Matthew 11 : 11 - 15
|11||"Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.|
|12||And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.|
|13||For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.|
|14||And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come.|
|15||He who has ears to hear, let him hear!|
And Glory be to God forever.
