  • First Reading: 1 Corinthians 12: 31-13:13

    31 But be zealous for the better gifts. And I shew unto you yet a more excellent way.
    1 If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
    2 And if I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
    3 And if I should distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
    4 Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up;
    5 Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil;
    6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with the truth;
    7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
    8 Charity never falleth away: whether prophecies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge shall be destroyed.
    9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
    10 But when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away.
    11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child.
    12 We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known.
    13 And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 33: 2-3, 4-5, 12 and 22

    2 Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.
    3 Sing to him a new canticle, sing well unto him with a loud noise.

    4 For the word of the Lord is right, and all his works are done with faithfulness.
    5 He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.
     
    12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord: the people whom he hath chosen for his inheritance.

    22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we have hoped in thee. 

  • Gospel: Luke 7: 31-35

    31 And the Lord said: Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?
    32 They are like to children sitting in the marketplace, and speaking one to another, and saying: We have piped to you, and you have not danced: we have mourned, and you have not wept.
    33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and you say: He hath a devil.
    34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking: and you say: Behold a man that is a glutton and a drinker of wine, a friend of publicans and sinners.
    35 And wisdom is justified by all her children.
