Thursday, Tenth Week in Ordinary Time, Year I
Antiphons on p 915 and Readings on p.930 of the Daily Missal


First Reading: 2 Corinthians 3:15-4:1.3-6

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

Brothers and sisters:
To this day whenever Moses is read
a veil lies over the minds of the Israelites;
but when a person turns to the Lord the veil is removed.
Now the Lord is the Spirit,
and where the Spirit of the Lord is,
there is freedom.
And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord,
are being changed into his likeness
from one degree of glory to another;
for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,
we do not lose heart.

And even if our gospel is veiled,
it is veiled only to those who are perishing.
In their case the god of this world
has blinded the minds of the unbelievers,
to keep them from seeing the light
of the gospel of the glory of Christ,
who is the likeness of God.
For what we preach is not ourselves,
but Jesus Christ as Lord,
with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
For it is the God who said,
“Let light shine out of darkness,”
who has shone in our hearts
to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Christ.

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 85:9ab & 10.11-12.13-14 (R. cf. 10b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord’s glory will dwell in our land.

I will hear what the Lord God speaks;
he speaks of peace for his people and his faithful.
His salvation is near for those who fear him,
and his glory will dwell in our land.

Merciful love and faithfulness have met;
justice and peace have kissed.
Faithfulness shall spring from the earth,
and justice look down from heaven.

Also the Lord will bestow his bounty,
and our earth shall yield its increase.
Justice will march before him,
and guide his steps on the way.

R/. The Lord’s glory will dwell in our land.

Alleluia. alleluia.
A new commandment I give to you, says the Lord, that you love one another, even as I have loved you.



Gospel: Matthew 5:20-26

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Unless your righteousness
exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees,
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

You have heard that it was said to the people of old,
‘You shall not kill;
and whoever kills shall be liable to judgment.’
But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother or sister
shall be liable to judgment;
whoever insults his brother or sister shall be liable to the council,
and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be liable to the hell of fire.
So if you are offering your gift at the altar,
and there remember
that your brother or sister has something against you,
leave your gift there before the altar and go;
first be reconciled to your brother or sister,
and then come and offer your gift.
Make friends quickly with your accuser,
while you are going with him to court,
lest your accuser hand you over to the judge,
and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison;
truly, I say to you,
you will never get out till you have paid the last penny.

The Gospel of the Lord
