Reading of the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Yesterday I was buried with Christ,
today I rise with you who are risen.
With you I was crucified;
remember me, Lord, in your kingdom.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Matthew 11, 2-11

Now John had heard in prison what Christ was doing and he sent his disciples to ask him,

'Are you the one who is to come, or are we to expect someone else?'

Jesus answered, 'Go back and tell John what you hear and see;

the blind see again, and the lame walk, those suffering from virulent skin-diseases are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life and the good news is proclaimed to the poor;

and blessed is anyone who does not find me a cause of falling.'

As the men were leaving, Jesus began to talk to the people about John, 'What did you go out into the desert to see? A reed swaying in the breeze? No?

Then what did you go out to see? A man wearing fine clothes? Look, those who wear fine clothes are to be found in palaces.

Then what did you go out for? To see a prophet? Yes, I tell you, and much more than a prophet:

he is the one of whom scripture says: Look, I am going to send my messenger in front of you to prepare your way before you.

'In truth I tell you, of all the children born to women, there has never been anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he.

 

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Yesterday I was buried with Christ,
today I rise with you who are risen.
With you I was crucified;
remember me, Lord, in your kingdom.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia
