  • First Reading: James 1:12-18

    12 . Blessed is the man who suffers temptation. For when he has been proven, he shall receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him.
    13 . No one should say, when he is tempted, that he was tempted by God. For God does not entice toward evils, and he himself tempts no one.
    14 . Yet truly, each one is tempted by his own desires, having been enticed and drawn away.
    15 . Thereafter, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin. Yet truly sin, when it has been consummated, produces death.
    16 . And so, do not choose to go astray, my most beloved brothers.
    17 . Every excellent gift and every perfect gift is from above, descending from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor any shadow of alteration.
    18 . For by his own will he produced us through the Word of truth, so that we might be a kind of beginning among his creatures.

    12 . Blessed is the man whom you will instruct, O Lord. And you will teach him from your law.
    13 . So may yo soothe him from the evil days
    14 . For the Lord will not drive away his people, and he will not abandon his inheritance,
    15 . even until the time when justice is being converted into judgment, and when those who are close to justice are all those who are upright of heart.
    18 . If ever I said, “My foot is slipping,” then your mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
    19 . According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, your consolations have given joy to my soul.

    18 . Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? Do you not remember,
    19 . when I broke the five loves among the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments you took up?” They said to him, “Twelve.”
    20 . “And when the seven loaves were among the four thousand, how many baskets of fragments did you take up?” And they said to him, “Seven.”
