USCCB Daily Readings from the New American Bible Revised Edition
  1. Monday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time

    Reading 1 2 Cor 6:1-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    As your fellow workers, we appeal to you
    not to receive the grace of God in vain.
    For he says:

    In an acceptable time I heard you,
    and on the day of salvation I helped you.


    Behold, now is a very acceptable time;
    behold, now is the day of salvation.
    We cause no one to stumble in anything,
    in order that no fault may be found with our ministry;
    on the contrary, in everything we commend ourselves
    as ministers of God, through much endurance,
    in afflictions, hardships, constraints,
    beatings, imprisonments, riots,
    labors, vigils, fasts;
    by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness,
    in the Holy Spirit, in unfeigned love, in truthful speech,
    in the power of God;
    with weapons of righteousness at the right and at the left;
    through glory and dishonor, insult and praise.
    We are treated as deceivers and yet are truthful;
    as unrecognized and yet acknowledged;
    as dying and behold we live;
    as chastised and yet not put to death;
    as sorrowful yet always rejoicing;
    as poor yet enriching many;
    as having nothing and yet possessing all things.

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 98:1, 2b, 3ab, 3cd-4

    R.(2a) The Lord has made known his salvation.
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. The Lord has made known his salvation.
    In the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. The Lord has made known his salvation.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song; sing praise.
    R. The Lord has made known his salvation.

    Alleluia Ps 119:105

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    A lamp to my feet is your word,
    a light to my path.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Mt 5:38-42

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "You have heard that it was said,
    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
    But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil.
    When someone strikes you on your right cheek,
    turn the other one to him as well.
    If anyone wants to go to law with you over your tunic,
    hand him your cloak as well.
    Should anyone press you into service for one mile,
    go with him for two miles.
    Give to the one who asks of you,
    and do not turn your back on one who wants to borrow."

  2. The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

    Reading 1 Prv 8:22-31

    Thus says the wisdom of God:
    "The LORD possessed me, the beginning of his ways,
    the forerunner of his prodigies of long ago;
    from of old I was poured forth,
    at the first, before the earth.
    When there were no depths I was brought forth,
    when there were no fountains or springs of water;
    before the mountains were settled into place,
    before the hills, I was brought forth;
    while as yet the earth and fields were not made,
    nor the first clods of the world.

    "When the Lord established the heavens I was there,
    when he marked out the vault over the face of the deep;
    when he made firm the skies above,
    when he fixed fast the foundations of the earth;
    when he set for the sea its limit,
    so that the waters should not transgress his command;
    then was I beside him as his craftsman,
    and I was his delight day by day,
    playing before him all the while,
    playing on the surface of his earth;
    and I found delight in the human race."

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 8:4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    R. (2a)    O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    When I behold your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars which you set in place —
    What is man that you should be mindful of him,
    or the son of man that you should care for him?
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    You have made him little less than the angels,
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
    You have given him rule over the works of your hands,
    putting all things under his feet:
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    All sheep and oxen,
    yes, and the beasts of the field,
    The birds of the air, the fishes of the sea,
    and whatever swims the paths of the seas.
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!

    Reading 2 Rom 5:1-5

    Brothers and sisters:
    Therefore, since we have been justified by faith,
    we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
    through whom we have gained access by faith
    to this grace in which we stand,
    and we boast in hope of the glory of God.
    Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions,
    knowing that affliction produces endurance,
    and endurance, proven character,
    and proven character, hope,
    and hope does not disappoint,
    because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts
    through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

    Alleluia CF. Rv 1:8

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit;
    to God who is, who was, and who is to come.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Jn 16:12-15

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
    But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
    he will guide you to all truth.
    He will not speak on his own,
    but he will speak what he hears,
    and will declare to you the things that are coming.
    He will glorify me,
    because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
    Everything that the Father has is mine;
    for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
    and declare it to you."
