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

Official Translation

Reading 1 – 1 Corinthians 6:1-11

Brothers and Sisters:
How do any of you, having a case against their neighbor,
dare to go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints?
Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?
If the world is judged by you,
are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
Do you not know that we will judge angels?
How much more, things that pertain to this life?
If then, you have to judge things pertaining to this life,
do you seat judges who are of no account in the Church?
I say this to shame you.
Is there not even someone wise among you
who would be able to decide between their brothers?
Instead brother goes to law with brother, and that before unbelievers!
Therefore it is already altogether a defect in you,
that you have lawsuits one with another.
Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded?
No, but you yourselves do wrong, and defraud,
and that against your brothers.
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived. Neither the perverse, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the greedy,
nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers,
will inherit the Kingdom of God.
Such were some of you,
but you were washed; you were sanctified; you were justified
in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.

Responsorial – Psalm 149.1b-2,3-4,5-6a+9b Resp. 4

R. For the Lord takes pleasure in his people.

Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of the saints.
Let Israel rejoice in him who made them.
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

R. For the Lord takes pleasure in his people.

Let them praise his name in the dance!
Let them sing praises to him with tambourine and harp!
For the Lord takes pleasure in his people.
He crowns the humble with salvation.

R. For the Lord takes pleasure in his people.

Let the saints rejoice in honor.
Let them sing for joy on their beds.
May the high praises of God be in their mouths.
All his saints have this honor. Alleluia.

R. For the Lord takes pleasure in his people.

Gospel – Luke 6.12-19

Jesus went up the mountain to pray,
and he continued all night in prayer to God.
When it was day, he called his disciples,
and from them he chose twelve, whom he also named apostles:
Simon, whom he also named Peter; Andrew, his brother;
James; John; Philip; Bartholomew; Matthew;
Thomas; James, the son of Alphaeus;
Simon, who was called the Zealot; Judas the son of James;
and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

He came down with them, and stood on a level place,
with a crowd of his disciples, and a great number of the people
from all Judea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon,
who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases;
and those who were troubled by unclean spirits were being healed.
All the crowd sought to touch him,
for power came out of him and healed them all.
