Quem se eleva será humilhado e quem se humilha será elevado.
Who rises will be humiliated and who humbleth himself shall be high.

1st Reading - Romans 11,1-2.11-12.25-29
Reading from the letter of Saint Paul to the Romans – Brothers, 1 I wonder: does God rejected your people? In any way. Because I'm also Israeli, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not rejected the your people, that he has always been considered. 11 I wonder: do they stumbled to fall? No, not at all. In fact, the misstep that they gave served to the salvation of the Gentiles, and the salvation of the Gentiles, by your time, should serve to arouse jealousy in them. 12 if the misstep was wealth to the world and the small number of believers among them was wealth to the pagans, that wealth will not be joining them all to the Gospel! 25 brethren, not to be smug because of your wisdom, it is important to know the mystery, namely: the hardening of a part of Israel is to last until all of the Gentiles has come in salvation. 26 and so all Israel will be saved, as it is written, "of Zion will come the deliverer; It will take turn away ungodliness from Jacob. 27 this is the realization of my Covenant with them when I take away their sins. 28 in fact, with respect to the Gospel they are enemies for your benefit, but, with respect to the divine choice, they are loved on account of the Patriarchs. 29 for the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable. -The word of the Lord.

Refletindo o Evangelho
É feliz, ó Senhor, quem formais † e educais nos caminhos da lei / para dar-lhe um alívio na angústia. O Senhor não rejeita o seu povo / e não pode esquecer sua herança: / voltarão a juízo as sentenças; / quem é reto andará na justiça. Se o Senhor não me desse uma ajuda, / no silêncio da morte estaria! / Quando eu penso: “Estou quase caindo!”, / vosso amor me sustenta, Senhor! Salmo 93/94.
