Second Reading for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Romans 11:13-15, 29-32

Summary: Paul explains that God’s gifts and calling are permanent. He allowed disobedience from all to extend mercy to all, emphasizing the potential for widespread redemption.

Mercy for All

Brothers and sisters:
I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I glory in my ministry in order to make my race jealous and thus save some of them. For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable. Just as you once disobeyed God but have now received mercy because of their disobedience, so they have now disobeyed in order that, by virtue of the mercy shown to you, they too may now receive mercy. For God delivered all to disobedience, that he might have mercy upon all.
