2 Corinthians 3:4-11; Matthew 5:17-19

Wednesday, 10th Week in Ordinary Time, Year I
Readings on p.927 and Antiphons on p 915 of the Daily Missal

Entrance Antiphon
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; whom should I dread? When those who do evil draw near, they stumble and fall.

First Reading: 2 Corinthians 3:4-11

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

Brothers and sisters:
Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God.
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves
to claim anything as coming from us;
our sufficiency is from God,
who has qualified us to be ministers of a new covenant,
not in a written code but in the Spirit;
for the written code kills,
but the Spirit gives life.

Now if the dispensation of death,
carved in letters on stone,
came with such splendour
that the Israelites could not look at Moses’ face
because of its brightness, fading as this was,
will not the dispensation of the Spirit
be attended with greater splendour?
For if there was splendour in the dispensation of condemnation,
the dispensation of righteousness must far exceed it in splendour. Indeed, in this case,
what once had splendour has come to have no splendour at all,
because of the splendour that surpasses it.
For if what faded away came with splendour,
what is permanent must have much more splendour.

The Word of the Lord

 

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 99:5.6.7.8.9 (R. see 9c)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. You are holy, O Lord our God.

Exalt the Lord our God;
bow down before his footstool.
Holy is he!

Among his priests were Aaron and Moses;
among those who invoked his name was Samuel.
They cried out to the Lord and he answered.

To them he spoke in the pillar of cloud.
They obeyed his decrees and the statutes
which he had given them.

O Lord our God, you answered them.
For them you were a God who forgives,
and yet you punished their offenses.

Exalt the Lord our God;
bow down before his holy mountain,
for the Lord our God is holy.

R/. You are holy, O Lord our God.

 

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia.

 

 

Gospel: Matthew 5:17-19

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Do not think that I have come
to abolish the law and the prophets;
I have come not to abolish them but to fulfil them.
For truly, I say to you,
till heaven and earth pass away,
not an iota, not a dot,
will pass from the law until all is accomplished.
Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments
and teaches people so,
shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven;
but the one who does them and teaches them
shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Communion Antiphon
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God is my saving strength.
