This Sunday’s Gospel lesson is from St. Luke 13:31-35. Here is my translation of this text:
31 -In that same hour, some Pharisees came up, saying to Him: “Go away and leave this place. Herod wants to kill you.”
32 – And He said to them: Go and tell that fox, ‘Look, I am going to expel (exorcise) demons and cure people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will complete my agenda.
34 – Jerusalem, Jerusalem! You are the one killing the prophets and stoning the ones sent to you! How often did I want to bring you together, like a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you refused to do so.
35 – Look, your house is left to you desolate, and I say to you, you will not see Me until you are prepared to say, ‘Blessed is the One coming in the name of the Lord.’
