Saturday of the Twenty-seventh week in Ordinary Time

Saint Luke 11:27-28
by Daily Gospel | Source: Daily Gospel
Book of Joel 4:12-21

Let the nations bestir themselves and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit in judgment upon all the neighboring nations. 
Apply the sickle, for the harvest is ripe; Come and tread, for the wine press is full; The vats overflow, for great is their malice. 
Crowd upon crowd in the valley of decision; For near is the day of the LORD in the valley of decision. 
Sun and moon are darkened, and the stars withhold their brightness. 
The LORD roars from Zion, and from Jerusalem raises his voice; The heavens and the earth quake, but the LORD is a refuge to his people, a stronghold to the men of Israel. 
Then shall you know that I, the LORD, am your God, dwelling on Zion, my holy mountain; Jerusalem shall be holy, and strangers shall pass through her no more. 
And then, on that day, the mountains shall drip new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk; And the channels of Judah shall flow with water: A fountain shall issue from the house of the LORD, to water the Valley of Shittim. 
Egypt shall be a waste, and Edom a desert waste, Because of violence done to the people of Judah, because they shed innocent blood in their land. 
But Judah shall abide forever, and Jerusalem for all generations. 
I will avenge their blood, and not leave it unpunished. The LORD dwells in Zion. 

Psalms 97(96):1-2.5-6.11-12. 

The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice; let the many islands be glad. 
Cloud and darkness surround the Lord; justice and right are the foundation of his throne. 
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. 
The heavens proclaim God's justice; all peoples see his glory. 

Light dawns for the just; gladness, for the honest of heart. 
Rejoice in the LORD, you just, and praise his holy name. 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 11:27-28

While he was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him, "Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed."
He replied, "Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it."
