Wednesday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time
Readings on p. 1252 of the Daily Missal.



First Reading: 1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22b-27

A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

Brothers and sisters:

If I preach the gospel,
that gives me no ground for boasting.
For necessity is laid upon me.
Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!
For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward;
but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a commission.
What then is my reward?
Just this:
that in my preaching I may make the gospel free of charge,
not making full use of my right in the gospel.

For though I am free from all people,
I have made myself a slave to all,
that I might win the more.

I have become all things to all people,
that I might, by all means, save some.
I do it all for the sake of the gospel,
that I may share in its blessings.

Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete,
but only one receives the prize?
So run that you may obtain it.
Every athlete exercises self-control in all things.
They do it to receive a perishable wreath,
but we an imperishable.
Well, I do not run aimlessly,
I do not box as one beating the air;
but I pommel my body and subdue it,
lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 84:3.4.5-6.12(R. 2)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!

My soul is longing and yearning
for the courts of the Lord.
My heart and my flesh cry out
to the living God.

Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself
in which she sets her young, at your altars,
O Lord of hosts, my king and my God.

Blessed are they who dwell in your house,
forever singing your praise.
Blessed the man whose strength is in you,
whose heart is set on pilgrim ways.

For the Lord God is a sun, a shield;
the Lord will give us his favour and glory.
He will not withhold any good
to those who walk without blame.

R/. How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!


Alleluia, Alleluia.
Your word, O Lord is truth; sanctify us in the truth.


Gospel: Luke 6:39-42

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus told his disciples a parable:
“Can a blind man lead a blind man?
Will they, not both fall into a pit?
A disciple is not above his teacher,
but everyone when he is fully taught will be like his teacher.
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye,
but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
Or how can you say to your brother,
‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’
when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye?
You hypocrite,
first take the log out of your own eye,
and then you will see clearly
to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
