Monday of the Fourth Week of Lent
Lectionary: 244
Looking at 1
Is sixty five:seventeen-21
So says the LORD:
Lo, I am about to produce new heavens
and a new earth
The issues of the earlier shall not be remembered
or arrive to head.
Alternatively, there shall usually be rejoicing and joy
in what I produce
For I produce Jerusalem to be a joy
and its people to be a delight
I will rejoice in Jerusalem
and exult in my people.
No for a longer period shall the seem of weeping be heard there,
or the seem of crying
No for a longer period shall there be in it
an infant who lives but a couple times,
or an previous person who does not spherical out his complete lifetime
He dies a mere youth who reaches but a hundred decades,
and he who fails of a hundred shall be assumed accursed.
They shall live in the houses they build,
and eat the fruit of the vineyards they plant.
Responsorial Psalm
PS 30:2 and four, five-six, 11-12a and 13b
R. (2a) I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
I will extol you, O LORD, for you drew me clear
and did not enable my enemies rejoice more than me.
O LORD, you brought me up from the nether planet
you preserved me from among those people heading down into the pit.
R. I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
Sing praise to the LORD, you his trustworthy types,
and give many thanks to his holy name.
For his anger lasts but a minute
a lifetime, his great will.
At nightfall, weeping enters in,
but with the dawn, rejoicing.
R. I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
“Hear, O LORD, and have pity on me
O LORD, be my helper.”
You changed my mourning into dancing
O LORD, my God, for good will I give you many thanks.
R. I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
Verse Before the Gospel
Am five:14
Search for great and not evil so that you could live,
and the LORD will be with you.
Gospel
Jn four:43-fifty four
At that time Jesus still left [Samaria] for Galilee.
For Jesus himself testified
that a prophet has no honor in his native position.
When he arrived into Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him,
considering that they experienced seen all he experienced performed in Jerusalem at the feast
for they by themselves experienced absent to the feast.

Then he returned to Cana in Galilee,
where he experienced built the water wine.
Now there was a royal official whose son was sick in Capernaum.
When he heard that Jesus experienced arrived in Galilee from Judea,
he went to him and questioned him to arrive down
and mend his son, who was in the vicinity of loss of life.
Jesus mentioned to him,
“Unless you people see indications and wonders, you will not believe that.”
The royal official mentioned to him,
“Sir, arrive down before my little one dies.”
Jesus mentioned to him, “You could go your son will live.”
The person considered what Jesus mentioned to him and still left.
Whilst the person was on his way back,
his slaves met him and informed him that his boy would live.
He questioned them when he commenced to recover.
They informed him,
“The fever still left him yesterday, about one particular in the afternoon.”
The father realized that just at that time Jesus experienced mentioned to him,
“Your son will live,”
and he and his whole family arrived to believe that.
Now this was the 2nd signal Jesus did
when he arrived to Galilee from Judea.
