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

Official Translation

Reading 1 – 1 Corinthians 3:1-9

Brothers and sisters,
I could not speak to you as to the spiritual,
but as to the fleshly, as to babes in Christ.
I fed you with milk, not with meat; for you were not yet ready.
Indeed, even now you are not ready, for you are still fleshly.
For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you,
Are you not fleshly, and do you not walk in the ways of humans?

For when one says, “I follow Paul,”
and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not human?
For who is Apollos, and who is Paul,
except servants through whom you believed,
each as the Lord gave to him?
I planted. Apollos watered. But God gave the increase.
So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters,
but God who gives the increase.
Now he who plants and he who waters are one,
but each will receive their own reward according to their own labor.
For we are God’s coworkers. You are God’s farm, God’s building.

Responsorial – Psalm 33.12-13, 14-15, 20-21 Resp. 12

R. Blessed is the people whom the Lord has chosen for his own.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.
The Lord looks from heaven.
He sees all the sons of men.

R. Blessed is the people whom the Lord has chosen for his own.

From the place where he dwells he looks out
on all the inhabitants of the earth,
he who fashions all of their hearts,
and considers all of their works.

R. Blessed is the people whom the Lord has chosen for his own.

Our soul has waited for the Lord.
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart rejoices in him,
because we have trusted in his holy name.

R. Blessed is the people whom the Lord has chosen for his own.

Gospel – Luke 4.38-44

Jesus left the synagogue, and entered Simon’s house.
Simon’s mother-in-law was afflicted with a great fever,
and they begged him for her.
He stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her.
Immediately she rose up and served them.
When the sun was setting,
all those who had any sick with various diseases brought them to him,
and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
Demons also came out of many, crying out, and saying,
“You are the Christ, the Son of God!”
Rebuking them, he did not allow them to speak,
because they knew that he was the Christ.

At daybreak, he departed and went into an uninhabited place,
and the crowds looked for him, and came to him, and held on to him,
so that he would not go away from them.
But he said to them,
“I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God
to the other cities also.
For this reason I have been sent.”
He was preaching into the synagogues of Judea.
