  • First Reading: Leviticus 19:1-2, 17-18

    1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
    2 Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them: Be ye holy, because I the Lord your God am holy.

    17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy heart, but reprove him openly, lest thou incur sin through him.
    18 Seek not revenge, nor be mindful of the injury of thy citizens. Thou shalt love thy friend as thyself. I am the Lord. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 103:1-2, 3-4, 8, 10, 12-13

    1 For David himself. Bless the Lord, O my soul: and let all that is within me bless his holy name.
    2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and never forget all he hath done for thee.

    3 Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases.
    4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion.

    8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy.

    10 He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

    12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us.
    13 As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him

  • Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 3:16-23

    16 Know you not, that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
    17 But if any man violate the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which you are.
    18 Let no man deceive himself: if any man among you seem to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
    19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: I will catch the wise in their own craftiness.
    20 And again: The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
    21 Let no man therefore glory in men.
    22 For all things are yours, whether it be Paul, or Apollo, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; for all are yours;
    23 And you are Christ' s; and Christ is God' s. 

  • Gospel: Matthew 5:38-48

    38 You have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.
    39 But I say to you not to resist evil: but if one strike thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other:
    40 And if a man will contend with thee in judgment, and take away thy coat, let go thy cloak also unto him.
    41 And whosoever will force thee one mile, go with him other two,
    42 Give to him that asketh of thee and from him that would borrow of thee turn not away.
    43 You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thy enemy.
    44 But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you:
    45 That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.
    46 For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this?
    47 And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this?
    48 Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.
