Daily Gospel Reading for October 13, 2021 – Wednesday in the Twenty-Eighth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 13th of October, 2021 is the Wednesday in the Twenty-Eighth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2021 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: ROM 2:1-11

The first reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans.

Therefore you are without excuse, O man, whoever you are who judge. For in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself. For you who judge practice the same things.

We know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.

Do you think this, O man who judges those who practice such things, and do the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?

Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

But according to your hardness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, revelation, and of the righteous judgment of God, who “will pay back to everyone according to their works:” to those who by perseverance in well-doing seek for glory, honor, and incorruptibility, eternal life; but to those who are self-seeking and don’t obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, will be wrath, indignation, oppression, and anguish on every soul of man who does evil, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

But glory, honor, and peace go to every man who does good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

For there is no partiality with God.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 62:1-2, 5-6, 8

Response: For you reward every man according to his work.

My soul rests in God alone. My salvation is from him.

He alone is my rock, my salvation, and my fortress. I will never be greatly shaken.

R: For you reward every man according to his work.

My soul, wait in silence for God alone, for my expectation is from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress. I will not be shaken.

R: For you reward every man according to his work.

Trust in him at all times, you people. Pour out your heart before him. God is a refuge for us.

R: For you reward every man according to his work.

Gospel of the Day: LK 11:42-46

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

“But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, but you bypass justice and God’s love. You ought to have done these, and not to have left the other undone.

Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and the greetings in the marketplaces.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like hidden graves, and the men who walk over them don’t know it.”

One of the lawyers answered him, “Teacher, in saying this you insult us also.”

He said, “Woe to you lawyers also! For you load men with burdens that are difficult to carry, and you yourselves won’t even lift one finger to help carry those burdens.”
