Readings Tuesday Week 10

First Reading
2 Cor 1:18-22

Jesus was not “yes” and “no”, but “yes” has always been in him.

A reading from the second Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians

Brothers and sisters:
As God is faithful, our word to you is not “yes” and “no.”
For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed to you by us,
   Silvanus and Timothy and me,
   was not “yes” and “no,” but “yes” has been in him.
For however many are the promises of God, their Yes is in him;
   therefore, the Amen from us also goes through him to God for glory.
But the one who gives us security with you in Christ
   and who anointed us is God;
   he has also put his seal upon us
   and given the Spirit in our hearts as a first installment.


Responsorial Psalm
Ps 119:129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 135

R. (135a) Lord, let your face shine on me.

Wonderful are your decrees;

R. Lord, let your face shine on me.

The revelation of your words sheds light,
   gives understanding to the simple.

R. Lord, let your face shine on me.

I gasp with open mouth
   in my yearning for your commands.

R. Lord, let your face shine on me.

Turn to me in pity
   as you turn to those who love your name.

R. Lord, let your face shine on me.

Steady my footsteps according to your promise,
   and let no iniquity rule over me.

R. Lord, let your face shine on me.

Let your countenance shine upon your servant,
   and teach me your statutes.

R. Lord, let your face shine on me.


Gospel
Mt 10:7-13

Without cause you have received; without cost you are to give.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew

Jesus said to the Twelve
“As you go, make this proclamation:
   ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons.
Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.
Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts;
   no sack for the journey, or a second tunic,
   or sandals, or walking stick.
The laborer deserves his keep.
Whatever town or village you enter,
   look for a worthy person in it,
   and stay there until you leave.
As you enter a house, wish it peace.
If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it;
   if not, let your peace return to you.”

At the end of the Gospel, the Deacon, or the Priest, acclaims:

The Gospel of the Lord.

All reply:

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Then he kisses the book, saying quietly:

Through the words of the Gospel
may our sins be wiped away.

Gospel Acclamation
Mt 5:16

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Let your light shine before others
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.


Gospel
Mt 5:13-16

You are the light of the world.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew

Jesus said to his disciples:
“You are the salt of the earth.
But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned?
It is no longer good for anything
   but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world.
A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket;
   it is set on a lampstand,
   where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others,
   that they may see your good deeds
   and glorify your heavenly Father.”

At the end of the Gospel, the Deacon, or the Priest, acclaims:

The Gospel of the Lord.

All reply:

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Then he kisses the book, saying quietly:

Through the words of the Gospel
may our sins be wiped away.
