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

Official Translation

Reading 1 – 1 Corinthians 2.10b-16

Brothers and sisters:
The Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
For who among humans knows that of a human,
except the spirit of the human which is in them?
Even so, no one knows the things of God, except the Spirit of God.

But we received, not the spirit of the world,
but the Spirit who is from God,
that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God.
And we speak about them, not in words which human wisdom teaches,
but those which the Holy Spirit teaches,
evaluating the spiritual things spiritually.

Now the natural human does not accept the things of the Spirit of God,
for these are folly to them,
and they cannot know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Whereas the spiritual one discerns all things,
but they themself are judged by no one.
“For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to advise him?”
But we have the mind of Christ.

Responsorial – Psalm 145.8-9, 10-11, 12-13ab, 13cd-14 Resp. 17

R. The Lord is righteous in all his ways.

The Lord is gracious, merciful,
slow to anger, and of great loving kindness.
The Lord is good to all.
His tender mercies are upon all his works.

R. The Lord is righteous in all his ways.

Let all your works, O Lord, praise you,
and let your holy ones bless you.
They will speak of the glory of your kingdom:
and tell of your power.

R. The Lord is righteous in all his ways.

To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts,
the glory of the majesty of his kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
Your dominion endures throughout all generations.

R. The Lord is righteous in all his ways.

The Lord is faithful in all his words,
and loving in all his deeds.
The Lord upholds all who fall,
and raises up all those who are bowed down.

R. The Lord is righteous in all his ways.

Gospel – Luke 4.31-37

Jesus came down to Capernaum, a town of Galilee.
He was teaching them on the Sabbath,
and they were astonished at his teaching,
for his word was in authority.

In the synagogue there was a human
who had the spirit of an unclean demon,
and it cried out with a loud voice, saying,
“Hey! What are we and you, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us?
I know you who you are: the Holy One of God!”
Jesus rebuked it, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!”
When the demon had thrown him down in the middle of them,
It came out of him, having done him no harm.
Amazement came on all, and they spoke together, one with another,
saying, “What is this word that in authority and power
he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!”
News about him went out into every place of the surrounding region.
