Twenty-Third Saturday in Ordinary Time, Year II
Readings on p. 1254 and Antiphons of the Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary on p. 1865 of the Daily Missal. (BVM#5)


First Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:14-22

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

My beloved, shun the worship of idols.
I speak as to sensible people;
judge for yourselves what I say.
The cup of blessing which we bless,
is it not a participation in the blood of Christ?
The bread which we break,
is it not a participation in the body of Christ?
Because there is one bread,
we who are many are one body,
for we all partake of the one bread.
Consider the practice of Israel;
are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar?
What do I imply then?
That food offered to idols is anything,
or that an idol is anything?
No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice
they offer to demons and not to God.
I do not want you to be partners with demons.
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord
and the cup of demons.
You cannot partake of the table of the Lord
and the table of demons.
Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy?
Are we stronger than he?

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 116:12-13.17-18 (R. 17a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. A thanksgiving sacrifice I make to you, O Lord.

How can I repay the Lord
for all his goodness to me?
The cup of salvation I will raise;
I will call on the name of the Lord.

A thanksgiving sacrifice I make;
I will call on the name of the Lord.
My vows to the Lord I will fulfil
before all his people.

R/. A thanksgiving sacrifice I make to you, O Lord.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
If a man loves me, he will keep my word, says the Lord; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him.


Gospel: Luke 6:43-49

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“No good tree bears bad fruit,
nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit;
for each tree is known by its own fruit.
For figs are not gathered from thorns,
nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush.
The good man out of the good treasure of his heart
produces good,
and the evil man out of his evil treasure produces evil; f
or out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’
and not do what I tell you?
Everyone who comes to me
and hears my words and does them,
I will show you what he is like:
he is like a man building a house,
who dug deep and laid the foundation upon a rock;
and when a flood arose,
the stream broke against that house,
and could not shake it,
because it had been well built.
But he who hears and does not do them
is like a man who built a house on the ground
without a foundation;
against which the stream broke,
and immediately it fell,
and the ruin of that house was great.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
