III Domingo de Cuaresma

Primera lectura 

Ex 3, 1-8a. 13-15
En aquellos días, Moisés pastoreaba el rebaño de su suegro, Jetró, sacerdote de Madián. En cierta ocasión llevó el rebaño más allá del desierto, hasta el Horeb, el monte de Dios, y el Señor se le apareció en una llama que salía de un zarzal. Moisés observó con gran asombro que la zarza ardía sin consumirse y se dijo: “Voy a ver de cerca esa cosa tan extraña, por qué la zarza no se quema”.

Viendo el Señor que Moisés se había desviado para mirar, lo llamó desde la zarza: “¡Moisés, Moisés!” Él respondió: “Aquí estoy”. Le dijo Dios: “¡No te acerques! Quítate las sandalias, porque el lugar que pisas es tierra sagrada”. Y añadió: “Yo soy el Dios de tus padres, el Dios de Abraham, el Dios de Isaac y el Dios de Jacob”.

Entonces Moisés se tapó la cara, porque tuvo miedo de mirar a Dios. Pero el Señor le dijo: “He visto la opresión de mi pueblo en Egipto, he oído sus quejas contra los opresores y conozco bien sus sufrimientos. He descendido para librar a mi pueblo de la opresión de los egipcios, para sacarlo de aquellas tierras y llevarlo a una tierra buena y espaciosa, una tierra que mana leche y miel”.

Moisés le dijo a Dios: “Está bien. Me presentaré a los hijos de Israel y les diré: ‘El Dios de sus padres me envía a ustedes’; pero cuando me pregunten cuál es su nombre, ¿qué les voy a responder?”

Dios le contestó a Moisés: “Mi nombre es Yo-soy”; y añadió: “Esto les dirás a los israelitas: ‘Yo-soy me envía a ustedes’. También les dirás: ‘El Señor, el Dios de sus padres, el Dios de Abraham, el Dios de Isaac, el Dios de Jacob, me envía a ustedes’. Éste es mi nombre para siempre. Con este nombre me han de recordar de generación en generación”.


Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 102, 1-2. 3-4. 6-7. 8 y 11
R. (8a) El Señor es compasivo y misericordioso.
Bendice, al Señor, alma mía,
que todo mi ser bendiga su santo nombre.
Bendice, al Señor, alma mía,
y no te olvides de sus beneficios.  
R. El Señor es compasivo y misericordioso.
El Señor perdona tus pecados
y cura tus enfermedades;
él rescata tu vida del sepulcro
y te colma de amor y de ternura. 
R. El Señor es compasivo y misericordioso.
El Señor hace justicia
y de la razón al oprimido.
A Moisés le mostró su bondad
y sus prodigios al pueblo de Israel.  
R. El Señor es compasivo y misericordioso.
El Señor es compasivo y misericordioso,
lento para enojarse y generoso para perdonar.
Como desde la tierra hasta el cielo,
así es de grande su misericordia. 
R. El Señor es compasivo y misericordioso.


Segunda Lectura

1 Cor 10, 1-6. 10-12
Hermanos: No quiero que olviden que en el desierto nuestros padres estuvieron todos bajo la nube, todos cruzaron el Mar Rojo y todos se sometieron a Moisés, por una especie de bautismo en la nube y en el mar. Todos comieron el mismo alimento milagroso y todos bebieron de la misma bebida espiritual, porque bebían de una roca espiritual que los acompañaba, y la roca era Cristo. Sin embargo, la mayoría de ellos desagradaron a Dios y murieron en el desierto.

Todo esto sucedió como advertencia para nosotros, a fin de que no codiciemos cosas malas como ellos lo hicieron. No murmuren ustedes como algunos de ellos murmuraron y perecieron a manos del ángel exterminador. Todas estas cosas les sucedieron a nuestros antepasados como un ejemplo para nosotros y fueron puestas en las Escrituras como advertencia para los que vivimos en los últimos tiempos. Así pues, el que crea estar firme, tenga cuidado de no caer.


Aclamación antes del Evangelio

Mt 4, 17
R. Honor y gloria a ti, Señor Jesús.
Conviértanse, dice el Señor,
porque ya está cerca el Reino de los cielos.
R. Honor y gloria a ti, Señor Jesús.


Evangelio

Lc 13, 1-9
En aquel tiempo, algunos hombres fueron a ver a Jesús y le contaron que Pilato había mandado matar a unos galileos, mientras estaban ofreciendo sus sacrificios. Jesús les hizo este comentario: “¿Piensan ustedes que aquellos galileos, porque les sucedió esto, eran más pecadores que todos los demás galileos? Ciertamente que no; y si ustedes no se arrepienten, perecerán de manera semejante. Y aquellos dieciocho que murieron aplastados por la torre de Siloé, ¿piensan acaso que eran más culpables que todos los demás habitantes de Jerusalén? Ciertamente que no; y si ustedes no se arrepienten, perecerán de manera semejante”.

Entonces les dijo esta parábola: “Un hombre tenía una higuera plantada en su viñedo; fue a buscar higos y no los encontró. Dijo entonces al viñador: ‘Mira, durante tres años seguidos he venido a buscar higos en esta higuera y no los he encontrado. Córtala. ¿Para qué ocupa la tierra inútilmente?’ El viñador le contestó: ‘Señor, déjala todavía este año; voy a aflojar la tierra alrededor y a echarle abono, para ver si da fruto. Si no, el año que viene la cortaré’ ”.

Third Sunday of Lent – Year C Readings

Reading 1EX 3:1-8A, 13-15

Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law Jethro,
the priest of Midian.
Leading the flock across the desert, he came to Horeb,
the mountain of God.
There an angel of the LORD appeared to Moses in fire
flaming out of a bush.
As he looked on, he was surprised to see that the bush,
though on fire, was not consumed.
So Moses decided,
“I must go over to look at this remarkable sight,
and see why the bush is not burned.”

When the LORD saw him coming over to look at it more closely,
God called out to him from the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
He answered, “Here I am.”
God said, “Come no nearer!
Remove the sandals from your feet,
for the place where you stand is holy ground.
I am the God of your fathers, “ he continued,
“the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob.”
Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.
But the LORD said,
“I have witnessed the affliction of my people in Egypt
and have heard their cry of complaint against their slave drivers,
so I know well what they are suffering.
Therefore I have come down to rescue them
from the hands of the Egyptians
and lead them out of that land into a good and spacious land,
a land flowing with milk and honey.”

Moses said to God, “But when I go to the Israelites
and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’
if they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?”
God replied, “I am who am.”
Then he added, “This is what you shall tell the Israelites:
I AM sent me to you.”

God spoke further to Moses, “Thus shall you say to the Israelites:
The LORD, the God of your fathers,
 
the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob,
has sent me to you.

“This is my name forever;
thus am I to be remembered through all generations.”

Responsorial PsalmPS 103: 1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8, 11.

R. (8a)  The Lord is kind and merciful.
Bless the LORD, O my soul;
and all my being, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits.
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.
He pardons all your iniquities,
heals all your ills,
He redeems your life from destruction,
crowns you with kindness and compassion.
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.
The LORD secures justice
and the rights of all the oppressed.
He has made known his ways to Moses,
and his deeds to the children of Israel.
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.
Merciful and gracious is the LORD,
slow to anger and abounding in kindness.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.
R. The Lord is kind and merciful.

Reading 21 COR 10:1-6, 10-12

I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, 
that our ancestors were all under the cloud 
and all passed through the sea, 
and all of them were baptized into Moses 
in the cloud and in the sea.
All ate the same spiritual food, 
and all drank the same spiritual drink, 
for they drank from a spiritual rock that followed them, 
and the rock was the Christ.
Yet God was not pleased with most of them, 
for they were struck down in the desert.

These things happened as examples for us, 
so that we might not desire evil things, as they did. 
Do not grumble as some of them did, 
and suffered death by the destroyer.
These things happened to them as an example, 
and they have been written down as a warning to us, 
upon whom the end of the ages has come.
Therefore, whoever thinks he is standing secure 
should take care not to fall.

Verse Before The GospelMT 4:17

Repent, says the Lord;
the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

GospelLK 13:1-9

Some people told Jesus about the Galileans
whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices.
Jesus said to them in reply, 
"Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way 
they were greater sinners than all other Galileans?
By no means!
But I tell you, if you do not repent,
you will all perish as they did!
Or those eighteen people who were killed 
when the tower at Siloam fell on them—
do you think they were more guilty 
than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem?
By no means!
But I tell you, if you do not repent,
you will all perish as they did!"

And he told them this parable: 
"There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard, 
and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none,
he said to the gardener,
'For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree 
but have found none.
So cut it down.
Why should it exhaust the soil?'
He said to him in reply,
'Sir, leave it for this year also, 
and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; 
it may bear fruit in the future.
If not you can cut it down.'"

Second Sunday of Lent
Lectionary: 27

Reading 1GN 15:5-12, 17-18

The Lord God took Abram outside and said, 
"Look up at the sky and count the stars, if you can.
Just so," he added, "shall your descendants be."
Abram put his faith in the LORD, 
who credited it to him as an act of righteousness.

He then said to him, 
"I am the LORD who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans 
to give you this land as a possession."
"O Lord GOD," he asked, 
"how am I to know that I shall possess it?"
He answered him, 
"Bring me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old she-goat, 
a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon."
Abram brought him all these, split them in two, 
and placed each half opposite the other; 
but the birds he did not cut up.
Birds of prey swooped down on the carcasses, 
but Abram stayed with them.
As the sun was about to set, a trance fell upon Abram, 
and a deep, terrifying darkness enveloped him.

When the sun had set and it was dark, 
there appeared a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch, 
which passed between those pieces.
It was on that occasion that the LORD made a covenant with Abram,
saying: "To your descendants I give this land, 
from the Wadi of Egypt to the Great River, the Euphrates."

Responsorial PsalmPS 27:1, 7-8, 8-9, 13-14.

R. (1a)  The Lord is my light and my salvation.
The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom should I fear?
The LORD is my life's refuge;
of whom should I be afraid?
R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Hear, O LORD, the sound of my call;
have pity on me, and answer me.
Of you my heart speaks; you my glance seeks.
R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Your presence, O LORD, I seek.
Hide not your face from me;
do not in anger repel your servant.
You are my helper: cast me not off.
R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD with courage;
be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.
R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.

Reading 2 PHIL 3:17—4:1

Join with others in being imitators of me, brothers and sisters, 
and observe those who thus conduct themselves 
according to the model you have in us.
For many, as I have often told you 
and now tell you even in tears, 
conduct themselves as enemies of the cross of Christ.
Their end is destruction.
Their God is their stomach; 
their glory is in their "shame."
Their minds are occupied with earthly things.
But our citizenship is in heaven, 
and from it we also await a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
He will change our lowly body
to conform with his glorified body 
by the power that enables him also 
to bring all things into subjection to himself.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters,
whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, 
in this way stand firm in the Lord.

OrPHIL 3:20—4:1

Brothers and sisters:
Our citizenship is in heaven, 
and from it we also await a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
He will change our lowly body
to conform with his glorified body 
by the power that enables him also 
to bring all things into subjection to himself.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters,
whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, 
in this way stand firm in the Lord, beloved.

Verse Before The GospelCF. MT 17:5

From the shining cloud the Father's voice is heard:
This is my beloved Son, hear him.

GospelLK 9:28B-36

Jesus took Peter, John, and James 
and went up the mountain to pray.
While he was praying his face changed in appearance 
and his clothing became dazzling white.
And behold, two men were conversing with him, Moses and Elijah, 
who appeared in glory and spoke of his exodus 
that he was going to accomplish in Jerusalem.
Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep, 
but becoming fully awake, 
they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
As they were about to part from him, Peter said to Jesus, 
"Master, it is good that we are here;
let us make three tents,
one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
But he did not know what he was saying.
While he was still speaking, 
a cloud came and cast a shadow over them, 
and they became frightened when they entered the cloud.
Then from the cloud came a voice that said, 
"This is my chosen Son; listen to him."
After the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone.
They fell silent and did not at that time 
tell anyone what they had seen.

I Domingo de Cuaresma

 

Primera lectura 

Dt 26, 4-10
En aquel tiempo, dijo Moisés al pueblo: "Cuando presentes las primicias de tus cosechas, el sacerdote tomará el cesto de tus manos y lo pondrá ante el altar del Señor, tu Dios. Entonces tú dirás estas palabras ante el Señor, tu Dios:

'Mi padre fue un arameo errante, que bajó a Egipto y se estableció allí con muy pocas personas; pero luego creció hasta convertirse en una gran nación, potente y numerosa.

Los egipcios nos maltrataron, nos oprimieron y nos impusieron una dura esclavitud. Entonces clamamos al Señor, Dios de nuestros padres, y el Señor escuchó nuestra voz, miró nuestra humillación, nuestros trabajos y nuestra angustia. El Señor nos sacó de Egipto con mano poderosa y brazo protector, con un terror muy grande, entre señales y portentos; nos trajo a este país y nos dio esta tierra, que mana leche y miel. Por eso ahora yo traigo aquí las primicias de la tierra que tú, Señor, me has dado'.

Una vez que hayas dejado tus primicias ante el Señor, te postrarás ante él para adorarlo''.


Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 90, 1-2. 10-11. 12-13. 14-15
R. (cf. 15b) Tú eres mi Dios y en ti confío.
Tú, que vivas al amparo del Altísimo
y descansas a la sombra del todopoderoso,
dile al Señor: "Tu eres mi refugio y fortaleza; 
tú eres mi Dios y en ti confío". 
R. Tú eres mi Dios y en ti confío.
No te sucederá desgracia alguna,
ninguna calamidad caerá sobre tu casa, 
pues el Señor ha dado a sus ángeles la orden 
de protegerte a donde quiera  que vayas.  
R. Tú eres mi Dios y en ti confío.
Los ángeles de Dios te llevarán en brazos 
para que no te tropieces con las piedras,
podrás pisar los escorpiones y las víboras
y dominar las fieras.   
R. Tú eres mi Dios y en ti confío.
"Puesto que tú me conoces y me amas, dice el Señor, 
yo te libraré y te pondré a salvo. 
Cuando tú me invoques, yo te escucharé,
y en tus angustias estaré contigo, 
te libraré de ellas y te colmaré de honores".  
R. Tú eres mi Dios y en ti confío.


Segunda Lectura

Rom 10, 8-13
Hermanos: La Escritura afirma: Muy a tu alcance, en tu boca y en tu corazón, se encuentra la salvación, esto es, el asunto de la fe que predicamos. Porque basta que cada uno declare con su boca que Jesús es el Señor y que crea en su corazón que Dios lo resucitó de entre los muertos, para que pueda salvarse.

En efecto, hay que creer con el corazón para alcanzar la santidad y declarar con la boca para alcanzar la salvación. Por eso dice la Escritura: Ninguno que crea en él quedará defraudado, porque no existe diferencia entre judío y no judío, ya que uno mismo es el Señor de todos, espléndido con todos los que lo invocan, pues todo el que invoque al Señor como a su Dios, será salvado por él.


Aclamación antes del Evangelio

Mt 4, 4
R. Honor y gloria a ti, Señor Jesús.
No sólo de pan vive el hombre,
sino también de toda palabra
que sale de la boca de Dios.
R. Honor y gloria a ti, Señor Jesús.


Evangelio

Lc 4, 1-13
En aquel tiempo, Jesús, lleno del Espíritu Santo, regresó del Jordán y conducido por el mismo Espíritu, se internó en el desierto, donde permaneció durante cuarenta días y fue tentado por el demonio.

No comió nada en aquellos días, y cuando se completaron, sintió hambre. Entonces el diablo le dijo: "Si eres el Hijo de Dios, dile a esta piedra que se convierta en pan". Jesús le contestó: "Está escrito: No sólo de pan vive el hombre".

Después lo llevó el diablo a un monte elevado y en un instante le hizo ver todos los reinos de la tierra y le dijo: "A mí me ha sido entregado todo el poder y la gloria de estos reinos, y yo los doy a quien quiero. Todo esto será tuyo, si te arrodillas y me adoras". Jesús le respondió: "Está escrito: Adorarás al Señor, tu Dios, y a él sólo servirás".

Entonces lo llevó a Jerusalén, lo puso en la parte más alta del templo y le dijo: "Si eres el Hijo de Dios, arrójate desde aquí, porque está escrito: Los ángeles del Señor tienen órdenes de cuidarte y de sostenerte en sus manos, para que tus pies no tropiecen con las piedras". Pero Jesús le respondió: "También está escrito: No tentarás al Señor, tu Dios".

Concluidas las tentaciones, el diablo se retiró de él, hasta que llegara la hora.

First Sunday of Lent
Lectionary: 24

Reading 1 DT 26:4-10

Moses spoke to the people, saying: 
"The priest shall receive the basket from you 
and shall set it in front of the altar of the LORD, your God.
Then you shall declare before the Lord, your God, 
'My father was a wandering Aramean 
who went down to Egypt with a small household 
and lived there as an alien.
But there he became a nation 
great, strong, and numerous.
When the Egyptians maltreated and oppressed us, 
imposing hard labor upon us, 
we cried to the LORD, the God of our fathers, 
and he heard our cry
and saw our affliction, our toil, and our oppression.
He brought us out of Egypt
with his strong hand and outstretched arm,
with terrifying power, with signs and wonders;
and bringing us into this country,
he gave us this land flowing with milk and honey.
Therefore, I have now brought you the firstfruits
of the products of the soil 
which you, O LORD, have given me.'
And having set them before the Lord, your God, 
you shall bow down in his presence."

Responsorial PsalmPS 91:1-2, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15.

R. (cf. 15b)  Be with me, Lord, when I am in trouble.
You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
say to the LORD, "My refuge and fortress,
my God in whom I trust."
R. Be with me, Lord, when I am in trouble.
No evil shall befall you,
nor shall affliction come near your tent,
For to his angels he has given command about you,
that they guard you in all your ways.
R. Be with me, Lord, when I am in trouble.
Upon their hands they shall bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the asp and the viper;
you shall trample down the lion and the dragon.
R. Be with me, Lord, when I am in trouble.
Because he clings to me, I will deliver him;
I will set him on high because he acknowledges my name.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in distress;
I will deliver him and glorify him.
R. Be with me, Lord, when I am in trouble.

Reading 2ROM 10:8-13

Brothers and sisters:
What does Scripture say?
The word is near you,
in your mouth and in your heart

—that is, the word of faith that we preach—, 
for, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord 
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, 
you will be saved.
For one believes with the heart and so is justified, 
and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved.
For the Scripture says, 
No one who believes in him will be put to shame.
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; 
the same Lord is Lord of all,
enriching all who call upon him.
For "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Verse Before The GospelMT 4:4B

One does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.

GospelLK 4:1-13

Filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan 
and was led by the Spirit into the desert for forty days, 
to be tempted by the devil.
He ate nothing during those days, 
and when they were over he was hungry.
The devil said to him,
"If you are the Son of God, 
command this stone to become bread."
Jesus answered him, 
"It is written, One does not live on bread alone."
Then he took him up and showed him
all the kingdoms of the world in a single instant.
The devil said to him,
"I shall give to you all this power and glory; 
for it has been handed over to me, 
and I may give it to whomever I wish.
All this will be yours, if you worship me."
Jesus said to him in reply,
"It is written:
You shall worship the Lord, your God,
and him alone shall you serve."

Then he led him to Jerusalem, 
made him stand on the parapet of the temple, and said to him,
"If you are the Son of God,
throw yourself down from here, for it is written:
He will command his angels concerning you, to guard you,
and:
With their hands they will support you,
lest you dash your foot against a stone."

Jesus said to him in reply,
"It also says,
You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test."
When the devil had finished every temptation, 
he departed from him for a time.

VIII Domingo Ordinario

Primera lectura 

Sir 27, 5-8
Al agitar el cernidor, aparecen las basuras;
en la discusión aparecen los defectos del hombre.
En el horno se prueba la vasija del alfarero;
la prueba del hombre está en su razonamiento.
El fruto muestra cómo ha sido el cultivo de un árbol;
la palabra muestra la mentalidad del hombre.
Nunca alabes a nadie antes de que hable,
porque ésa es la prueba del hombre.


Salmo Responsorial

Del Salmo 91
R. (cf. 2a) ¡Qué bueno es darte gracias, Señor!
¡Qué bueno es darte gracias, Dios altísimo,
y celebrar tu nombre, 
pregonando tu amor cada mañana 
y tu fidelidad, todas las noches!  
R. ¡Qué bueno es darte gracias, Señor!
Los justos crecerán como las palmas,
como los cedros en los altos montes;
plantados en la casa del Señor,
en medio de sus atrios darán flores.  
R. ¡Qué bueno es darte gracias, Señor!
Seguirán dando fruto en su vejez,
frondosos y lozanos como jóvenes, 
para anunciar que en Dios, mi protector,
ni maldad ni injusticia se conocen.   
R. ¡Qué bueno es darte gracias, Señor!


Segunda lectura

1 Cor 15, 54-58
Hermanos: Cuando nuestro ser corruptible y mortal se revista de incorruptibilidad e inmortalidad, entonces se cumplirá la palabra de la Escritura: La muerte ha sido aniquilada por la victoria. ¿Dónde está, muerte, tu victoria? ¿Dónde está, muerte, tu aguijón? El aguijón de la muerte es el pecado y la fuerza del pecado es la ley. Gracias a Dios, que nos ha dado la victoria por nuestro Señor Jesucristo.

Así pues, hermanos míos muy amados, estén firmes y permanezcan constantes, trabajando siempre con fervor en la obra de Cristo, puesto que ustedes saben que sus fatigas no quedarán sin recompensa por parte del Señor.


Aclamación antes del Evangelio

Cfr Flp 2, 15. 16
R. Aleluya, aleluya.
Iluminen al mundo con la luz
del Evangelio reflejada en su vida.
R. Aleluya.


Evangelio

Lc 6, 39-45
En aquel tiempo, Jesús propuso a sus discípulos este ejemplo: "¿Puede acaso un ciego guiar a otro ciego? ¿No caerán los dos en un hoyo? El discípulo no es superior a su maestro; pero cuando termine su aprendizaje, será como su maestro.

¿Por qué ves la paja en el ojo de tu hermano y no la viga que llevas en el tuyo? ¿Cómo te atreves a decirle a tu hermano: 'Déjame quitarte la paja que llevas en el ojo', si no adviertes la viga que llevas en el tuyo? ¡Hipócrita! Saca primero la viga que llevas en tu ojo y entonces podrás ver, para sacar la paja del ojo de tu hermano.

No hay árbol bueno que produzca frutos malos, ni árbol malo que produzca frutos buenos. Cada árbol se conoce por sus frutos. No se recogen higos de las zarzas, ni se cortan uvas de los espinos. El hombre bueno dice cosas buenas, porque el bien está en su corazón, y el hombre malo dice cosas malas, porque el mal está en su corazón, pues la boca habla de lo que está lleno el corazón".
Mar 3, 2019

Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reading 1SIR 27:4-7

When a sieve is shaken, the husks appear;
so do one's faults when one speaks.
As the test of what the potter molds is in the furnace,
so in tribulation is the test of the just.
The fruit of a tree shows the care it has had;
so too does one's speech disclose the bent of one's mind.
Praise no one before he speaks,
for it is then that people are tested.

Responsorial PsalmPS 92:2-3, 13-14, 15-16

R. (cf. 2a) Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.
It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to sing praise to your name, Most High,
To proclaim your kindness at dawn
and your faithfulness throughout the night.
R. Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.
The just one shall flourish like the palm tree,
like a cedar of Lebanon shall he grow.
They that are planted in the house of the LORD
shall flourish in the courts of our God.
R. Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.
They shall bear fruit even in old age;
vigorous and sturdy shall they be,
Declaring how just is the LORD,
my rock, in whom there is no wrong.
R. Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.

Reading 21 COR 15:54-58

Brothers and sisters:
When this which is corruptible clothes itself with incorruptibility
and this which is mortal clothes itself with immortality,
then the word that is written shall come about:
 Death is swallowed up in victory.
Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?

The sting of death is sin,
and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God who gives us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters,
be firm, steadfast, always fully devoted to the work of the Lord,
knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

Shine like lights in the world
as you hold on to the word of life.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelLK 6:39-45

Jesus told his disciples a parable,
"Can a blind person guide a blind person?
Will not both fall into a pit?
No disciple is superior to the teacher;
but when fully trained,
every disciple will be like his teacher.
Why do you notice the splinter in your brother's eye,
but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own?
How can you say to your brother,
'Brother, let me remove that splinter in your eye,'
when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye?
You hypocrite!  Remove the wooden beam from your eye first;
then you will see clearly
to remove the splinter in your brother's eye.

"A good tree does not bear rotten fruit,
nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit.
For every tree is known by its own fruit.
For people do not pick figs from thornbushes,
nor do they gather grapes from brambles.
A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good,
but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil;
for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks."
