|Mid-morning reading (Terce)||Ezekiel 33:10,11 ©|
Our sins and crimes weigh heavily on us; we are wasting away because of them. How are we to go on living? As I live – it is the Lord who speaks – I take pleasure, not in the death of a wicked man, but in the turning back of a wicked man who changes his ways to win life.
|Noon reading (Sext)||Jeremiah 18:20 ©|
Remember how I stood in your presence to plead on their behalf, to turn your wrath away from them.
|Afternoon reading (None)||Jeremiah 31:2,3,4 ©|
The Lord says this: They have found pardon in the wilderness, those who have survived the sword. Israel is marching to his rest. I have loved you with an everlasting love, so I am constant in my affection for you. I build you once more; you shall be rebuilt, virgin of Israel.
