  • First Reading: 1 Corinthians 7:25-31

    25 Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment of the Lord; but I give counsel, as having obtained mercy of the Lord, to be faithful.

    26 I think therefore that this is good for the present necessity, that it is good for a man so to be.

    27 Art thou bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

    28 But if thou take a wife, thou hast not sinned. And if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned: nevertheless, such shall have tribulation of the flesh. But I spare you.

    29 This therefore I say, brethren; the time is short; it remaineth, that they also who have wives, be as if they had none;

    30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as if they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

    31 And they that use this world, as if they used it not: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

  • Psalm: Psalms 45:11-12, 14-15, 16-17

    11 Hearken, O daughter, and see, and incline thy ear: and forget thy people and thy father's house.

    12 And the king shall greatly desire thy beauty; for he is the Lord thy God, and him they shall adore.

    14 All the glory of the king's daughter is within in golden borders,

    15 Clothed round about with varieties. After her shall virgins be brought to the king: her neighbours shall be brought to thee.

    16 They shall be brought with gladness and rejoicing: they shall be brought into the temple of the king. 17 Instead of thy fathers, sons are born to thee: thou shalt make them princes over all the earth.

  • Gospel: Luke 6:20-26

    20 And he, lifting up his eyes on his disciples, said: Blessed are ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.

    21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for you shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for you shall laugh.

    22 Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

    23 Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.

    24 But woe to you that are rich: for you have your consolation.

    25 Woe to you that are filled: for you shall hunger. Woe to you that now laugh: for you shall mourn and weep.

    26 Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets.
