Reading 1 and//usccb.org/bible/romans/8and1 ROM 8and1-11 Brothers and sistersandNow there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesushas freed you from the law of sin and death.For what the law, weakened by the flesh, was powerless to do,this God has doneandby sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful fleshand for the sake of sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,so that the righteous decree of the law might be fulfilled in us,who live not according to the flesh but according to the spirit.For those who live according to the fleshare concerned with the things of the flesh,but those who live according to the spiritwith the things of the spirit.The concern of the flesh is death,but the concern of the spirit is life and peace.For the concern of the flesh is hostility toward Godit does not submit to the law of God, nor can itand those who are in the flesh cannot please God.But you are not in the fleshon the contrary, you are in the spirit,if only the Spirit of God dwells in you.Whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.But if Christ is in you,although the body is dead because of sin,the spirit is alive because of righteousness.If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you,the one who raised Christ from the deadwill give life to your mortal bodies also,through his Spirit that dwells in you. Responsorial Psalm and//usccb.org/bible/psalms/24and1 PS 24and1B-2, 3-4AB, 5-6 R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face. The LORD’s are the earth and its fullnessthe world and those who dwell in it.For he founded it upon the seasand established it upon the rivers. R.Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face. Who can ascend the mountain of the LORD?or who may stand in his holy place?He whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,who desires not what is vain. R.Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face. He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,a reward from God his savior.Such is the race that seeks for him,that seeks the face of the God of Jacob. R.Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face. Alleluia and//usccb.org/bible/ezekiel/33:11 EZ 33:11 R.Alleluia, alleluia.I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked man, says the Lord,but rather in his conversion that he may live.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and//usccb.org/bible/luke/13:1 LK 13:1-9 Some people told Jesus about the Galileanswhose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices.He said to them in reply, Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this waythey were greater sinners than all other Galileans?By no means!But I tell you, if you do not repent,you will all perish as they did!Or those eighteen people who were killedwhen the tower at Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guiltythan everyone else who lived in Jerusalem?By no means!But I tell you, if you do not repent,you will all perish as they did!”And he told them this parableand There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard,and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none,he said to the gardener,‘For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig treebut have found none.So cut it down.Why should it exhaust the soil?’He said to him in reply,‘Sir, leave it for this year also,and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize itit may bear fruit in the future.If not you can cut it down.’”
