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


First reading: 1 Corinthians 4:1-5

People must think of us as Christ’s servants, stewards entrusted with the mysteries of God. What is expected of stewards is that each one should be found worthy of his trust. Not that it makes the slightest difference to me whether you, or indeed any human tribunal, find me worthy or not. I will not even pass judgement on myself. True, my conscience does not reproach me at all, but that does not prove that I am acquitted: the Lord alone is my judge. There must be no passing of premature judgement. Leave that until the Lord comes; he will light up all that is hidden in the dark and reveal the secret intentions of men’s hearts. Then will be the time for each one to have whatever praise he deserves, from God.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 36(37):3-6,27-28,39-40

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.

If you trust in the Lord and do good,
  then you will live in the land and be secure.
If you find your delight in the Lord,
 he will grant your heart’s desire.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.

Commit your life to the Lord,
 trust in him and he will act,
so that your justice breaks forth like the light,
  your cause like the noon-day sun.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.

Then turn away from evil and do good
  and you shall have a home for ever;
for the Lord loves justice
  and will never forsake his friends.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord,
  their stronghold in time of distress.
The Lord helps them and delivers them
  and saves them: for their refuge is in him.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
