SIXTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year A

Second Reading: Romans 8:26-27

A reading from the letter of Paul to the Romans.

The Spirit, too, comes to help us in our weakness.

For we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit expresses our plea with groanings too deep for words.

And God, who knows everything in our hearts, knows perfectly well what the Spirit is saying, because the Spirit’s intercessions for God’s holy people are made according to the mind of God.

The Word of God recorded in the letter of Paul to the Romans.
