Gospel - Lk 5:33-39

33: The Scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus, "The disciples of John fast often and offer prayers, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink."


34: And Jesus said to them, "Can you make wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them?


35: The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days."


36: He told them a parable also: "No one tears a piece from a new garment and puts it upon an old garment; if he does, he will tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old.


37: And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed.
