TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year A

First Reading: Ezekiel 18:25-28

A reading from the book of the prophet Ezekiel.

“You say, ‘Our God’s way is not fair!’  I say, ‘Take note, nation of Israel.  Is it my way that is unjust, or is it your way that is unjust?’ When the virtuous turn away from justice and commit iniquity and die, it is because of the iniquity they committed that they must die. But if the wicked, turning from the wickedness they have committed, do what is right and just, they will save their life. Because they have turned away from all the sins which they committed, they will certainly live, they will not die.”

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