READING I: Jeremiah 7:23-28
RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 95:1-2, 6-7, 8-9
GOSPEL: Luke 11:14-23
Again today we have a very obvious connection between the first and second readings. In Jeremiah God is reminding his people how he has sent prophets to them and the people have preferred instead to follow "the dictates of their own evil hearts."
In the gospel, Jesus, the ultimate messenger from God is described as a messenger of the devil.
