Ordinary Time 22nd week Monday Cycle II All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

When I came to you, brothers, it was not with any show of oratory or philosophy, but simply to tell you what God had guaranteed. During my stay with you, the only knowledge I claimed to have was about Jesus, and only about him as the crucified Christ. Far from relying on any power of my own, I came among you in great ‘fear and trembling’ and in my speeches and the sermons that I gave, there were none of the arguments that belong to philosophy; only a demonstration of the power of the Spirit. And I did this so that your faith should not depend on human philosophy but on the power of God.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 118(119):97-102

Lord, how I love your law!

Lord, how I love your law!
  It is ever in my mind.
Your command makes me wiser than my foes;
  for it is mine for ever.

Lord, how I love your law!

I have more insight than all who teach me
  for I ponder your will.
I have more understanding than the old
  for I keep your precepts.

Lord, how I love your law!

I turn my feet from evil paths
  to obey your word.
I have not turned from your decrees;
  you yourself have taught me.

Lord, how I love your law!

Gospel Acclamation

 

Alleluia, alleluia!
I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
anyone who follows me will have the light of life.
Alleluia!
