Thursday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time (II)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – 1 Corinthians 3.18-23

Brothers and sisters:
Let no one deceive themself.
If anyone among you thinks that they are wise in this world,
let them become a fool, that they may become wise.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
For it is written,
“He has caught the wise in their cleverness.”
And again,
“The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless.”

Therefore let no one boast in humans. For all things are yours,
whether Paul, or Apollos, or Kephas, or the world, or life, or death,
or things present, or things to come.
All are yours, and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

Responsorial – Psalm 24.1bc-2, 3-4ab, 5-6 Resp. 1

R. The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
the world and its inhabitants.
For he founded it upon the seas;
and upon the rivers made it firm.

R. The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness.

Who shall ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
He who, with innocent hands and a clean of heart,
has not lifted up his soul to useless things.

R. The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord,
and righteousness from God his Savior.
This is the nature of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

R. The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness.

Gospel – Luke 5.1-11

While the crowd pressed in on Jesus and heard the word of God,
he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret.
He saw two boats standing by the lake,
but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets.
He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon’s,
and asked him to put out a little from the shore.
He sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.

When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon,
“Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.”
Simon answered him, “Master, we worked all night, and caught nothing,
but at your word I will let down the net.”
When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish,
and their net was breaking.
They beckoned to their partners in the other boat,
that they should come and help them.
They came, and filled both boats, so that they began to sink.

Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying,
“Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord.”
For he was amazed, and all who were with him,
at the catch of fish which they had caught,
and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee,
who were partners with Simon.
Jesus said to Simon, “Be not afraid.
From now on you will be catching humans.”
When they had brought their boats to shore,
they left everything and followed him.
