Tuesday after the Sunday of the Birth of St John the Baptizer



Letter to the Romans 9,6-13.
It is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all Israelites truly belong to Israel,
and not all of Abraham’s children are his true descendants; but ‘It is through Isaac that descendants shall be named after you.’
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
For this is what the promise said, ‘About this time I will return and Sarah shall have a son.’
Nor is that all; something similar happened to Rebecca when she had conceived children by one husband, our ancestor Isaac.
Even before they had been born or had done anything good or bad (so that God’s purpose of election might continue,
not by works but by his call) she was told, ‘The elder shall serve the younger.’
As it is written, ‘I have loved Jacob, but I have hated Esau.’


Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 11,11-15.
Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.
For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John came;
and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come.
Let anyone with ears listen!
