Reading 1 1 Cor 6:1-11

Brothers and sisters:How can any one of you with a case against another dare to bring it to the unjust for judgmentinstead of to the holy ones?Do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world?If the world is to be judged by you,are you unqualified for the lowest law courts?Do you not know that we will judge angels?Then why not everyday matters?If, therefore, you have courts for everyday matters,do you seat as judges people of no standing in the Church?I say this to shame you.

   Can it be that there is not one among you wise enoughto be able to settle a case between brothers?But rather brother goes to court against brother,and that before unbelievers?

   Now indeed then it is, in any case,a failure on your part that you have lawsuits against one another.

   Why not rather put up with injustice?Why not rather let yourselves be cheated?Instead, you inflict injustice and cheat, and this to brothers.

   Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterersnor boy prostitutes nor sodomites nor thievesnor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robberswill inherit the Kingdom of God.

   That is what some of you used to be;but now you have had yourselves washed, you were sanctified,you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christand in the Spirit of our God.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 149:1b-2, 3-4, 5-6a and 9b

R. (see 4) The Lord takes delight in his people.

Sing to the LORD a new song
of praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel be glad in their maker,
let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.
R. The Lord takes delight in his people.

Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
For the LORD loves his people,
and he adorns the lowly with victory.
R. The Lord takes delight in his people.

Let the faithful exult in glory;
let them sing for joy upon their couches;
Let the high praises of God be in their throats.
This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia.
R. The Lord takes delight in his people.

Gospel Lk 6:12-19

Jesus departed to the mountain to pray,and he spent the night in prayer to God.When day came, he called his disciples to himself,and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles:Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew,James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus,Simon who was called a Zealot,and Judas the son of James,and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

   And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground.A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the peoplefrom all Judea and Jerusalemand the coastal region of Tyre and Sidoncame to hear him and to be healed of their diseases;and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured.

   Everyone in the crowd sought to touch himbecause power came forth from him and healed them all.
