Stand in the fear of God and listen to the Holy Gospel.
A reading from the Gospel according to our teacher Saint Luke the Evangelist.
May His Blessings be with us all.
Luke 14 : 7 - 11
|7||So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them:|
|8||"When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him;|
|9||and he who invited you and him come and say to you, "Give place to this man,' and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place.|
|10||But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, "Friend, go up higher.' Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you.|
|11||For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."|
And Glory be to God forever.
