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



Letter to the Romans 9,14-18.
What then are we to say? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means!
For he says to Moses, ‘I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.’
So it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God who shows mercy.
For the scripture says to Pharaoh, ‘I have raised you up for the very purpose of showing my power in you, so that my name may be proclaimed in all the earth.’
So then he has mercy on whomsoever he chooses, and he hardens the heart of whomsoever he chooses.


Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 17,9-13.
As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, ‘Tell no one about the vision until after the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.’
And the disciples asked him, ‘Why, then, do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?’
He replied, ‘Elijah is indeed coming and will restore all things;
but I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but they did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of Man is about to suffer at their hands.’
Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them about John the Baptist.
