GOSPEL COMMUNION: 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 6, 2019: 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time (C)

Today’s antiphon combines Luke 17:7 from the Gospel reading with Habbakuk 2:4 from the end of the 1st Reading, as a reminder that being fed (served) at the table of the Lord entails serving others, too, as well as acting with justice. The righteous will merit eternal life, a theme taken up in the psalm verses from Ps 112, which are given an additional mini-refrain emphasizing that eternal life comes to those who receive the Bread of Life.
