READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians
1 COR 2:10B-16

.

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.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Luke
LK 4:31-37

.

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.

Salmo: Sal 144, 8-9. 10-11. 12-13ab. 13cd-14
R. El Señor es justo en todos sus caminos.

El Señor es clemente y misericordioso,
lento a la cólera y rico en piedad;
el Señor es bueno con todos,
es cariñoso con todas sus criaturas. R.

R. El Señor es justo en todos sus caminos.

Que todas tus criaturas te den gracias, Señor,
que te bendigan tus fieles.
Que proclamen la gloria de tu reinado,
que hablen de tus hazañas. R.

R. El Señor es justo en todos sus caminos.

Explicando tus hazañas a los hombres,
la gloria y majestad de tu reinado.
Tu reinado es un reinado perpetuo,
tu gobierno va de edad en edad. R.

R. El Señor es justo en todos sus caminos.

El Señor es fiel a sus palabras,
bondadoso en todas sus acciones.
El Señor sostiene a los que van a caer.

R. El Señor es justo en todos sus caminos.

PRIMERA CARTA A LOS CORINTIOS Capítulo 2 1 Por mi parte, hermanos, cuando los visité para anunciarles el misterio de Dios, no llegué con el prestigio de la elocuencia o de la sabiduría. 2 Al contrario, no quise saber nada, fuera de Jesucristo, y Jesucristo crucificado. 3 Por eso, me presenté ante ustedes débil, temeroso… Seguir leyendo PRIMERA CARTA A LOS CORINTIOS – CAPÍTULO 2

READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians
1 Cor 2:1-5

.

When I came to you, brothers and sisters,
proclaiming the mystery of God,
I did not come with sublimity of words or of wisdom.
For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you
except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
I came to you in weakness and fear and much trembling,
and my message and my proclamation
were not with persuasive words of wisdom,
but with a demonstration of spirit and power,
so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom
but on the power of God.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Mark
Mk 6:17-29

.

Herod was the one who had John the Baptist arrested and bound in prison
on account of Herodias,
the wife of his brother Philip, whom he had married.
John had said to Herod,
“It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”
Herodias harbored a grudge against him
and wanted to kill him but was unable to do so.
Herod feared John, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man,
and kept him in custody.
When he heard him speak he was very much perplexed,
yet he liked to listen to him.
She had an opportunity one day when Herod, on his birthday,
gave a banquet for his courtiers,
his military officers, and the leading men of Galilee.
Herodias’ own daughter came in
and performed a dance that delighted Herod and his guests.
The king said to the girl,
“Ask of me whatever you wish and I will grant it to you.”
He even swore many things to her,
“I will grant you whatever you ask of me,
even to half of my kingdom.”
She went out and said to her mother,
“What shall I ask for?”
She replied, “The head of John the Baptist.”
The girl hurried back to the king’s presence and made her request,
“I want you to give me at once
on a platter the head of John the Baptist.”
The king was deeply distressed,
but because of his oaths and the guests
he did not wish to break his word to her.
So he promptly dispatched an executioner with orders
to bring back his head.
He went off and beheaded him in the prison.
He brought in the head on a platter and gave it to the girl.
The girl in turn gave it to her mother.
When his disciples heard about it,
they came and took his body and laid it in a tomb.
