Reading from the Gospel, Saturday, 20 June (click here)


Liturgical day: Saturday June 20
 Gospel (Mt 6, 24-34): At that time, Jesus told his disciples: "No one can serve two masters; he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to one and despise the other. You can not serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you worry about your life, what ye shall eat, nor about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Behold the fowls of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they? Otherwise, which of you can, but you worry, add a single cubit to your span of life?

"And the dress, why worry? Consider the lilies of the field grow; They do not toil nor spin. But I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of them. For if the grass of the field, which is today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, God clothes, will not do much more with you, O ye of little faith? You walk not therefore worried saying, What shall we eat ?, What shall we drink ?, what are we going to wear? For after all these things the Gentiles seek; as your heavenly Father knows that you need all that. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. "
