Reading 3, 1 Pet 3:14-18 : Die in body and live in spirit

14But even if you do suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled,
15but in your hearts reverence Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence;
16and keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are abused, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.
17For it is better to suffer for doing right, if that should be God's will, than for doing wrong.
18For Christ also died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit;


Gospel, Mt 13:24-30,36-43 : Parable of weeds among the wheat



24Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field;
25but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.
26So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also.
27And the servants of the householder came and said to him, `Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?'
28He said to them, `An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, `Then do you want us to go and gather them?'
29But he said, `No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them.
30Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'"
