Reading


Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 13,6-17.
He spoke also this parable: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard: and he came seeking fruit on it and found none.
And he said to the dresser of the vineyard: Behold, for these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree and I find none. Cut it down therefore. Why cumbereth it the ground?
But he answering, said to him: Lord, let it alone this year also, until I dig about it and dung it.
And if happily it bear fruit: but if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
And he was teaching in their synagogue on their sabbath.
And behold there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years. And she was bowed together: neither could she look upwards at all.
Whom when Jesus saw, he called her unto him and said to her: Woman, thou art delivered from thy infirmity.
And he laid his hands upon her: and immediately she was made straight and glorified God.
And the ruler of the synagogue being angry that Jesus had healed on the sabbath answering, said to the multitude: Six days there are wherein you ought to work. In them therefore come and be healed: and not on the sabbath day.
And the Lord answering him, said: Ye hypocrites, doth not every one of you, on the sabbath day, loose his ox or his ass from the manger and lead them to water?
And ought not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
And when he said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the things that were gloriously done by him.
