The Liturgy of the Word


First Reading

Wisdom 1:1-7

Love virtue you who are judges on earth let honesty prompt your thinking about the Lord seek him in simplicity of heart; since he is to be found by those who do not put him to the test he shows himself to those who do not distrust him. But selfish intentions divorce from God; and Omnipotence put to the test confounds the foolish. No Wisdom will never make its way into a crafty soul nor stay in a body that is in debt to sin; the holy spirit of instruction shuns deceit it stands aloof from reckless purposes is taken aback when iniquity appears.

Wisdom is a spirit a friend to man though she will not pardon the words of a blasphemer since God sees into the innermost parts of him truly observes his heart and listens to his tongue. The spirit of the Lord indeed fills the whole world and that which holds all things together knows every word that is said.


Psalm

Psalm 138(139):1-10

Lead me O Lord in the path of life eternal.

O Lord you search me and you know me
you know my resting and my rising
you discern my purpose from afar.
You mark when I walk or lie down
all my ways lie open to you.

Lead me O Lord in the path of life eternal.

Before ever a word is on my tongue
you know it O Lord through and through.
Behind and before you besiege me
your hand ever laid upon me.
Too wonderful for me this knowledge
too high beyond my reach.

Lead me O Lord in the path of life eternal.

O where can I go from your spirit
or where can I flee from your face?
If I climb the heavens you are there.
If I lie in the grave you are there.

Lead me O Lord in the path of life eternal.

If I take the wings of the dawn
and dwell at the sea’s furthest end
even there your hand would lead me
your right hand would hold me fast.

Lead me O Lord in the path of life eternal.


 Gospel

Luke 17:1-6

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Obstacles are sure to come but alas for the one who provides them! It would be better for him to be thrown into the Sea with a millstone put round his neck than that he should lead astray a single one of these little ones. Watch yourselves!
If your brother does something wrong reprove him and if he is sorry forgive him. And if he wrongs you seven times a day and seven times comes back to you and says “I am sorry ” you must forgive him.’

The apostles said to the Lord ‘Increase our faith.’ The Lord replied ‘Were your faith the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mulberry tree “Be uprooted and planted in the sea ” and it would obey you.’
