Reading for the Day
Revelation 14:14-19

  • 14 Then I looked, and lo, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand.
  • 15 And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat upon the cloud, "Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe."
  • 16 So he who sat upon the cloud swung his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
  • 17 And another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.
  • 18 Then another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has power over fire, and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, "Put in your sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe."
  • 19 So the angel swung his sickle on the earth and gathered the vintage of the earth, and threw it into the great wine press of the wrath of God;

  • 12 let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall all the trees of the wood sing for joy

Gospel for the Day
Luke 21:5-11

  • 5 And as some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with noble stones and offerings, he said,
  • 6 "As for these things which you see, the days will come when there shall not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down."
  • 7 And they asked him, "Teacher, when will this be, and what will be the sign when this is about to take place?"
  • 8 And he said, "Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name, saying, `I am he!' and, `The time is at hand!' Do not go after them.
  • 9 And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified; for this must first take place, but the end will not be at once."
  • 10 Then he said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom;
  • 11 there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.
