Reading 1, Dt 10:12-17 : Love God with your whole heart

12 "And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
13 and to keep the commandments and statutes of the LORD, which I command you this day for your good?
14 Behold, to the LORD your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it;
15 yet the LORD set his heart in love upon your fathers and chose their descendants after them, you above all peoples, as at this day.
16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no longer stubborn.
17 For the LORD your God is God of gods an


Reading 2, Wis 7:10-14 : Share your wisdom

10I loved her more than health and beauty, and I chose to have her rather than light, because her radiance never ceases.
11All good things came to me along with her, and in her hands uncounted wealth.
12I rejoiced in them all, because wisdom leads them; but I did not know that she was their mother.
13I learned without guile and I impart without grudging; I do not hide her wealth,
14for it is an unfailing treasure for men; those who get it obtain friendship with God, commended for the gifts that come from instruction.


Reading 3, 2Cor 5:14-21 : Reconcile with God

14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died.
15 And he died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once regarded Christ from a human point of view, we regard him thus no longer.
17 Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.
18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
20 So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.


Gospel, Mt 5:13-19 : You are the light of the world and salt of the earth

 

13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men.
14 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid.
15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
17 "Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfil them.
18 For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished.
19 Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
