Our Lord’s Lament over Jerusalem

THE HOLY GOSPEL                       St. Luke 13:31-35


Divine Service: The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke, the Thirteenth chapter. | Glory to you, O Lord.


At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, “Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.” 32 And he said to them, “Go and tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I finish my course. 33 Nevertheless, I must go on my way today and tomorrow and the day following, for it cannot be that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.’ 34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! 35 Behold, your house is forsaken. And I tell you, you will not see me until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’”


D.S.: This is the Gospel of the Lord. | Praise to you, O Christ.

Matins: This is the Word of the Lord. | Thanks be to God.
