Ezekiel 18:1-4, 19-32 (NRSV)

The phrase of the LORD got here to me: What do you imply by repeating this proverb in regards to the land of Israel, “The mother and father have eaten bitter grapes, and the youngsters’s tooth are set on edge”? As I reside, says the Lord GOD, this proverb shall no extra be utilized by you in Israel. Know that each one lives are mine; the lifetime of the mum or dad in addition to the lifetime of the kid is mine: it is just the one that sins that shall die.

But you say, “Why mustn’t the son undergo for the iniquity of the daddy?” When the son has accomplished what’s lawful and proper, and has been cautious to look at all my statutes, he shall absolutely reside. The one that sins shall die. A toddler shall not undergo for the iniquity of a mum or dad, nor a mum or dad undergo for the iniquity of a kid; the righteousness of the righteous shall be his personal, and the wickedness of the depraved shall be his personal.

But when the depraved flip away from all their sins that they’ve dedicated and hold all my statutes and do what’s lawful and proper, they shall absolutely reside; they shall not die. Not one of the transgressions that they’ve dedicated shall be remembered in opposition to them; for the righteousness that they’ve accomplished they shall reside. Have I any pleasure within the demise of the depraved, says the Lord GOD, and never quite that they need to flip from their methods and reside? However when the righteous flip away from their righteousness and commit iniquity and do the identical abominable issues that the depraved do, shall they reside? Not one of the righteous deeds that they’ve accomplished shall be remembered; for the treachery of which they’re responsible and the sin they’ve dedicated, they shall die.

But you say, “The best way of the Lord is unfair.” Hear now, O home of Israel: Is my means unfair? Is it not your methods which might be unfair? When the righteous flip away from their righteousness and commit iniquity, they shall die for it; for the iniquity that they’ve dedicated they shall die. Once more, when the depraved flip away from the wickedness they’ve dedicated and do what’s lawful and proper, they shall save their life. As a result of they thought of and turned away from all of the transgressions that they’d dedicated, they shall absolutely reside; they shall not die. But the home of Israel says, “The best way of the Lord is unfair.” O home of Israel, are my methods unfair? Is it not your methods which might be unfair?

Due to this fact I’ll choose you, O home of Israel, all of you in keeping with your methods, says the Lord GOD. Repent and switch from all of your transgressions; in any other case iniquity can be your destroy. Forged away from you all of the transgressions that you’ve got dedicated in opposition to me, and get yourselves a brand new coronary heart and a brand new spirit! Why will you die, O home of Israel? For I’ve no pleasure within the demise of anybody, says the Lord GOD. Flip, then, and reside.

Canticle: A Track of Knowledge
Knowledge 10:15-19,20b-21

Knowledge free of a nation of oppressors *
a holy folks and a innocent race.
She entered the soul of a servant of the Lord, *
withstood dread rulers with wonders and indicators.
To the saints she gave the reward of their labors, *
and led them by a fabulous means;
She was their shelter by day *
and a blaze of stars by night time.
She introduced them throughout the Pink Sea, *
she led them by way of mighty waters;
However their enemies she swallowed within the waves *
and spewed them out from the depths of the abyss.
After which, Lord, the righteous sang hymns to your Title, *
and praised with one voice your defending hand;
For Knowledge opened the mouths of the mute, *
and gave speech to the tongues of a new-born folks.

For the legislation appoints as excessive monks those that are topic to weak spot, however the phrase of the oath, which got here later than the legislation, appoints a Son who has been made excellent endlessly.

Canticle: A Track of True Motherhood
by Julian of Norwich

God selected to be our mom in all issues *
and so made the inspiration of his work,
most humbly and most pure, within the Virgin’s womb.
God, the proper knowledge of all, *
arrayed himself on this humble place.
Christ got here in our poor flesh *
to share a mom’s care.
Our moms bear us for ache and for demise; *
our true mom, Jesus, bears us for pleasure and infinite life.
Christ carried us inside him in love and travail, *
till the total time of his ardour.
And when all was accomplished and he had carried us so for pleasure, *
nonetheless all this might not fulfill the facility of his great love.
All that we owe is redeemed in really loving God, *
for the love of Christ works in us;
Christ is the one whom we love.
