Reading 3, 1 Cor 12:31-13:13 : Love is eternal

1 Corinthians 12
31But earnestly desire the higher gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way.

1 Corinthians 13 


1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 
2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 
3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. 
4 Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; 
5 it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 
6 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. 
7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 
8 Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 
9 For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; 
10 but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. 
11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 
12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. 
13 So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Gospel, LK 7:11-23 : The blind see and the lame walk


11 Soon afterward he went to a city called Na'in, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 
12 As he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her. 
13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep." 
14 And he came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, arise." 
15 And the dead man sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. 
16 Fear seized them all; and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has arisen among us!" and "God has visited his people!" 
17 And this report concerning him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country. 
18 The disciples of John told him of all these things. 
19 And John, calling to him two of his disciples, sent them to the Lord, saying, "Are you he who is to come, or shall we look for another?" 
20 And when the men had come to him, they said, "John the Baptist has sent us to you, saying, `Are you he who is to come, or shall we look for another?'" 
21 In that hour he cured many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits, and on many that were blind he bestowed sight. 
22 And he answered them, "Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached to them. 
23 And blessed is he who takes no offense at me."
