Twenty-Third Tuesday in Ordinary Time – Year II
Readings on p. 1245 and Antiphons on p. 1235 of the Daily Missal.


First Reading: 1 Corinthians 6:1-11

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

Brothers and sisters:

When one of you has a grievance against a brother or sister,
does he dare go to law before the unrighteous
instead of the saints?
Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?
And if the world is to be judged by you,
are you incompetent to try trivial cases?
Do you not know that we are to judge angels?
How much more, matters pertaining to this life!
If then you have such cases,
why do you lay them before those
who are least esteemed by the Church?
I say this to your shame.
Can it be that there is no person among you
wise enough to decide between members of the brotherhood,
but brother goes to law against brother,
and that before unbelievers?

To have lawsuits at all with one another is a defeat for you.
Why not rather suffer wrong?
Why not rather be defrauded?
But you yourselves wrong and defraud,
and that even your own brothers and sisters
Do you not know that the unrighteous
will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived;
neither the immoral, nor idolaters,
nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,
nor thieves, nor the greedy,
nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers
will inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you.
But you were washed,
you were sanctified,
you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
and in the Spirit of our God.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm Psalm 149:1b-2.3-4.5-6a and 9b (R. 4a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord takes delight in his people.

Sing a new song to the Lord,
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its Maker;
let Sion’s children exult in their king.

Let them praise his name with dancing,
and make music with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the poor with salvation.

Let the faithful exult in glory,
and rejoice as they take their rest.
Let the praise of God be in their mouths.
This is an honour for all his faithful.

R/. The Lord takes delight in his people.



Alleluia, Alleluia.
I chose you from the world that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should abide, says the Lord.


Gospel: Luke 6:12-19

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

It happened that in these days
Jesus went out into the hills to pray,
and all night he continued in prayer to God.
And when it was day,
he called his disciples and chose from them twelve,
whom he named apostles;
Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother,
and James and John,
and Philip, and Bartholomew,
and Matthew, and Thomas,
and James the son of Alphaeus,
and Simon who was called the Zealot,
and Judas the son of James,
and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

And he came down with them and stood on a level place,
with a great crowd of his disciples
and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem
and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon,
who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases;
and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured.
And all the crowd sought to touch him,
for power came forth from him and healed them all.

The Gospel of the Lord.
