First Reading for 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Year A – Daily Catholic Mass Reading
Thus says the LORD: You say, “The LORD’s way is not fair!”
Hear now, house of Israel: Is it my way that is unfair, or rather, are not your ways unfair?
When someone virtuous turns away from virtue to commit iniquity, and dies, it is because of the iniquity he committed that he must die.
But if he turns from the wickedness he has committed, he does what is right and just, he shall preserve his life; since he has turned away from all the sins that he has committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
