First Reading for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Leviticus 19:1-2, 17-18

Summary: God commands the Israelites through Moses to be holy as He is, to avoid hatred, seek no revenge, bear no grudges, and love their neighbors as themselves.

Call to Holiness and Love

The LORD said to Moses,
“Speak to the whole Israelite community and tell them: Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy.

“You shall not bear hatred for your brother or sister in your heart. Though you may have to reprove your fellow citizen, do not incur sin because of him.

Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against any of your people. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.”
