    Romans 1:16-25
    16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel: it is the power of God for salvation to every one who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
    17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "He who through faith is righteous shall live."
    18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth.
    19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
    20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse;
    21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
    22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
    23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles.
    24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
    25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen.

    Psalms 19:2-5
    1 The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.
    3 There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;
    4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun,

  • Gospel

    Luke 11:37-41
    37 While he was speaking, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him; so he went in and sat at table.
    38 The Pharisee was astonished to see that he did not first wash before dinner.
    39 And the Lord said to him, "Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of extortion and wickedness.
    40 You fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside also?
    41 But give for alms those things which are within; and behold, everything is clean for you.

    1 Corinthians 12:4-11
    4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit;
    5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord;
    6 and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in every one.
    7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
    8 To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit,
    9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,
    10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
    11 All these are inspired by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 98:1-4
    1 O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory.
    2 The LORD has made known his victory, he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.
    3 He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.
    4 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!

  • Gospel

    Matthew 18:1-5
    1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
    2 And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them,
    3 and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
    4 Whoever humbles himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
    5 "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me;
