Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Great Lent

Letter to the Ephesians 6,1-9.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
‘Honour your father and mother’ this is the first commandment with a promise:
‘so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.’
And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as you obey Christ;
not only while being watched, and in order to please them, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.
Render service with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not to men and women,
knowing that whatever good we do, we will receive the same again from the Lord, whether we are slaves or free.
And, masters, do the same to them. Stop threatening them, for you know that both of you have the same Master in heaven, and with him there is no partiality.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 7,11-17.
Soon afterwards he 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 mother’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, ‘Do not weep.’
Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, ‘Young man, I say to you, rise!’
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, ‘A great prophet has risen among us! ’ and ‘God has looked favourably on his people!’
This word about him spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding country.
