For 17 September 2019, Tuesday of week 24 in Ordinary Time, based on Luke 7:11-17
Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. As he approached the gate of the town, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his motherâ€™s only son, and she was a widow; and with her was a large crowd from the town. When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, â€œDo not weep.â€ Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, â€œYoung man, I say to you, rise!â€ The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized all of them; and they glorified God, saying, â€œA great prophet has risen among us!â€ and â€œGod has looked favorably on his people!â€ This word about him spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding country.
