Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:

 

“‘The stone the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone;
the Lord has done this,
    and it is marvelous in our eyes’?

 

“Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you

and given to a people who will produce its fruit.

Anyone who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces;

anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.”

Matthew 21:42-44


The lectionary readings for this eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost are:

First reading:  Isaiah 5:1-7

The Collect:

Almighty God,
you have built your Church
on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself
being the chief cornerstone.
Join us together in unity of spirit
by their teaching,
that we may become a holy temple,
acceptable to you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
