TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year A

First Reading: Isaiah 55:6-9

A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

Seek Your God while God is still to be found,

call to God, while God is still near.

Let the wicked abandon their ways,

the evil their thoughts.

Let them turn back to God, who will take pity on them,

to Our God, who will generously forgive.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

nor are your ways my ways, says Your God.

As high as the heavens are above the earth,

so high are my ways above your ways

and my thoughts above your thoughts.

The Word of God recorded in the book of the prophet Isaiah.
