Daily Readings for Monday November 20,2017
Reading 3, Heb 13: 9-16 : Here we have no lasting city.

9    Do not be turned away by different strange teachings, because it is good for your hearts to be made strong by grace, and not by meats, which were of no profit to those who took so much trouble over them.
10    We have an altar from which those priests who are servants in the Tent may not take food.
11    For the bodies of the beasts whose blood is taken into the holy place by the high priest as an offering for sin are burned outside the circle of the tents.
12    For this reason Jesus was put to death outside the walls, so that he might make the people holy by his blood.
13    Let us then go out to him outside the circle of the tents, taking his shame on ourselves.
14    For here we have no fixed resting-place, but our search is for the one which is to come.
15    Let us then make offerings of praise to God at all times through him, that is to say, the fruit of lips giving witness to his name.
16    But go on doing good and giving to others, because God is well-pleased with such offerings.


Gospel, Lk 11: 1-4 : The prayer that Jesus taught.

1 He was praying in a certain place, and when he ceased, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples."
2 And he said to them, "When you pray, say: "Father, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
3 Give us each day our daily bread;
4 and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive every one who is indebted to us; and lead us not into temptation."
