NINETEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME – Year B

First Reading: 1 Kings 19:4-8

A reading from the first book of Kings.

Elijah went a day’s journey into the desert, until he came to a broom tree and sat beneath it.  He prayed for death, “This is enough, O God!  Take my life, for I am no better than my ancestors.”  He lay down and fell asleep under the broom tree, but then an angel touched him and ordered him to get up and eat Elijah looked and there on the ground was a hearth cake and a jug of water.  After eating and drinking, he lay down again, but the angel of God came back a second time, touched him, and ordered, “Get up and eat, or else the journey will be too hard for you!” Elijah got up, ate and drank; then strengthened by the food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God.

The Word of God recorded in the first book of Kings.
