Reading 3, 1Cor 9:24-27 : Run for the imperishable
|1 Corinthians 9
||Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.
||Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
||Well, I do not run aimlessly, I do not box as one beating the air;
||but I pommel my body and subdue it, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. ------------------
Gospel, Lk 2:48-52 : Jesus reveals himself at the age of 12
||And when they saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been looking for you anxiously."
||And he said to them, "How is it that you sought me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?"
||And they did not understand the saying which he spoke to them.
||And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart.
||And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man.
