Readings For Tuesday 22nd Week In Ordinary Time

Year 1

First Reading
1 Cor 2:10b-16

Natural persons do not accept what pertains to the Spirit of God: spiritual persons, however, can judge everything.

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

Brothers and sisters:
The Spirit scrutinizes everything, even the depths of God.
Among men, who knows what pertains to the man
   except his spirit that is within?
Similarly, no one knows what pertains to God except the Spirit of God.
We have not received the spirit of the world
   but the Spirit who is from God,
   so that we may understand the things freely given us by God.
And we speak about them not with words taught by human wisdom,
   but with words taught by the Spirit,
   describing spiritual realities in spiritual terms.

Now the natural man does not accept what pertains to the Spirit of God,
   for to him it is foolishness, and he cannot understand it,
   because it is judged spiritually.
The one who is spiritual, however, can judge everything
   but is not subject to judgment by anyone.

For “who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to counsel him?”
But we have the mind of Christ.


Responsorial Psalm
Ps. 145:8-9, 10-11, 12-13ab, 13cd-14

Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,

Making known to men your might

   and your dominion endures through all generations.

R. The Lord is just in all his ways.

The LORD is faithful in all his words
   and holy in all his works.
The LORD lifts up all who are falling
   and raises up all who are bowed down.

R. The Lord is just in all his ways.

Year 2

First Reading
1 Thes 5:1-6, 9-11

Jesus Christ died for us so that we may live together with him.

A reading from the first Letter of Saint Paul to the Thesssalonians

Concerning times and seasons, brothers and sisters,
   you have no need for anything to be written to you.
For you yourselves know very well
   that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night.
When people are saying, “Peace and security,”
   then sudden disaster comes upon them,
   like labor pains upon a pregnant woman,
   and they will not escape.

But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness,
   for that day to overtake you like a thief.
For all of you are children of the light
   and children of the day.
We are not of the night or of darkness.
Therefore, let us not sleep as the rest do,
   but let us stay alert and sober.
For God did not destine us for wrath,
   but to gain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
   who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep
   we may live together with him.
Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up,
   as indeed you do.


Responsorial Psalm
27:1, 4, 13-14 

R. :

R. (13) I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.

The LORD is my light and my salvation;
   whom should I fear?
The LORD is my life’s refuge;
   of whom should I be afraid?

R. I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.

One thing I ask of the LORD;
   this I seek:
To dwell in the house of the LORD
   all the days of my life,
That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
   and contemplate his temple.

R. I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.

I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
   in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD with courage;
   be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.

R. I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.

Gospel
Lk 4:31-37 

I know who you are—the Holy One of God!

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

Jesus went down to Capernaum, a town of Galilee.
He taught them on the sabbath,
   and they were astonished at his teaching
   because he spoke with authority.
In the synagogue there was a man with the spirit of an unclean demon,
   and he cried out in a loud voice,
“What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us?
I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”
Jesus rebuked him and said, “Be quiet! Come out of him!”
Then the demon threw the man down in front of them
   and came out of him without doing him any harm.
They were all amazed and said to one another,
   “What is there about his word?
For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits,
   and they come out.”
And news of him spread everywhere in the surrounding region.

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.
