EVANGELIO

Jerusalén será pisoteada por los gentiles, hasta que alcancen su plenitud los tiempos de los gentiles
Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Lucas 21, 20-28

En aquel tiempo, dijo Jesús a sus discípulos:


«Cuando veáis a Jerusalén sitiada por ejércitos, sabed que entonces está cerca su destrucción. Entonces los que estén en Judea, que huyan a los montes; los que estén en medio de Jerusalén, que se alejen; los que estén en los campos, que no entren en ella; porque estos son “días de venganza” para que se cumpla todo lo que está escrito.

¡Ay de las que estén encinta o criando en aquellos días!
Porque habrá una gran calamidad en esta tierra y un castigo para este pueblo.


“Caerán a filo de espada”, los llevarán cautivos “a todas las naciones”, y “Jerusalén será pisoteada por los gentiles”, hasta que alcancen su plenitud los tiempos de los gentiles.


Habrá signos en el sol y la luna y las estrellas, y en la tierra angustia de las gentes, perplejas por el estruendo del mar y el oleaje, desfalleciendo los hombres por el miedo y la ansiedad ante lo que se le viene encima al mundo, pues las potencias del cielo serán sacudidas. Entonces verán al Hijo del hombre venir en una nube, con gran poder y gloria.


Cuando empiece a suceder esto, levantaos, alzad la cabeza: se acerca vuestra liberación».

Palabra del Señor

READINGS OF THE DAY

A reading from the Book of Revelation
RV 18:1-2, 21-23; 19:1-3, 9A

I, John, saw another angel coming down from heaven,
having great authority,
and the earth became illumined by his splendor.
He cried out in a mighty voice:

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great.
She has become a haunt for demons.
She is a cage for every unclean spirit,
a cage for every unclean bird,
a cage for every unclean and disgusting beast.”

A mighty angel picked up a stone like a huge millstone
and threw it into the sea and said:

“With such force will Babylon the great city be thrown down,
and will never be found again.
No melodies of harpists and musicians,
flutists and trumpeters,
will ever be heard in you again.
No craftsmen in any trade
will ever be found in you again.
No sound of the millstone
will ever be heard in you again.
No light from a lamp
will ever be seen in you again.
No voices of bride and groom
will ever be heard in you again.
Because your merchants were the great ones of the world,
all nations were led astray by your magic potion.”

After this I heard what sounded like
the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying:

“Alleluia!
Salvation, glory, and might belong to our God,
for true and just are his judgments.
He has condemned the great harlot
who corrupted the earth with her harlotry.
He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”

They said a second time:

“Alleluia! Smoke will rise from her forever and ever.”

Then the angel said to me, “Write this:
Blessed are those who have been called
to the wedding feast of the Lamb.”

The Word of the God.

Psalm 99, 2. 3. 4. 5

Aleluya Lc 21, 28

R. Aleluya, aleluya, aleluya.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

English – 26/11/2020

READING OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Luke
LK 21:20-28

From the Gospel according to Luke
LK 21:20-28

Jesus said to his disciples:
“When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies,
know that its desolation is at hand.
Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains.
Let those within the city escape from it,
and let those in the countryside not enter the city,
for these days are the time of punishment
when all the Scriptures are fulfilled.
Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days,
for a terrible calamity will come upon the earth
and a wrathful judgment upon this people.
They will fall by the edge of the sword
and be taken as captives to all the Gentiles;
and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles
until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

“There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars,
and on earth nations will be in dismay,
perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves.
People will die of fright
in anticipation of what is coming upon the world,
for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
And then they will see the Son of Man
coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
But when these signs begin to happen,
stand erect and raise your heads
because your redemption is at hand.”

Lord’s Word.
