    Ez 47:1-2, 8-9, 12

    The angel brought me
    back to the entrance of the temple,
    and I saw water flowing out
    from beneath the threshold of the temple toward the east,
    for the façade of the temple was toward the east;
    the water flowed down from the southern side of the temple,
    south of the altar.
    He led me outside by the north gate,
    and around to the outer gate facing the east,
    where I saw water trickling from the southern side.
    He said to me,
    "This water flows into the eastern district down upon the Arabah,
    and empties into the sea, the salt waters, which it makes fresh.
    Wherever the river flows,
    every sort of living creature that can multiply shall live,
    and there shall be abundant fish,
    for wherever this water comes the sea shall be made fresh.
    Along both banks of the river, fruit trees of every kind shall grow;
    their leaves shall not fade, nor their fruit fail.
    Every month they shall bear fresh fruit,
    for they shall be watered by the flow from the sanctuary.
    Their fruit shall serve for food, and their leaves for medicine."


    Ps 46:2-3, 5-6, 8-9

    R. (5) The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!
    God is our refuge and our strength,
    an ever-present help in distress.
    Therefore, we fear not, though the earth be shaken
    and mountains plunge into the depths of the sea.
    R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!
    There is a stream whose runlets gladden the city of God,
    the holy dwelling of the Most High.
    God is in its midst;it shall not be disturbed;
    God will help it at the break of dawn.
    R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!
    The LORD of hosts is with us;
    our stronghold is the God of Jacob.
    Come! behold the deeds of the LORD,
    the astounding things he has wrought on earth.
    R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!


    1 Cor 3:9c-11, 16-17

    Brothers and sisters:
    You are God's building.
    According to the grace of God given to me,
    like a wise master builder I laid a foundation,
    and another is building upon it.
    But each one must be careful how he builds upon it,
    for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there,
    namely, Jesus Christ.

    Do you not know that you are the temple of God,
    and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
    If anyone destroys God's temple,
    God will destroy that person;
    for the temple of God, which you are, is holy.


    Jn 2:13-22

    Since the Passover of the Jews was near,
    Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
    He found in the temple area those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves,
    as well as the money-changers seated there.
    He made a whip out of cords
    and drove them all out of the temple area, with the sheep and oxen,
    and spilled the coins of the money-changers
    and overturned their tables,
    and to those who sold doves he said,
    "Take these out of here,
    and stop making my Father's house a marketplace."
    His disciples recalled the words of Scripture,
    Zeal for your house will consume me.
    At this the Jews answered and said to him,
    "What sign can you show us for doing this?"
    Jesus answered and said to them,
    "Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up."
    The Jews said,
    "This temple has been under construction for forty-six years,
    and you will raise it up in three days?"
    But he was speaking about the temple of his Body.
    Therefore, when he was raised from the dead,
    his disciples remembered that he had said this,
    and they came to believe the Scripture
    and the word Jesus had spoken.


    Ordinary Time.


    Wis 1:1-7

    Love justice, you who judge the earth;
    think of the Lord in goodness,
    and seek him in integrity of heart;
    Because he is found by those who test him not,
    and he manifests himself to those who do not disbelieve him.
    For perverse counsels separate a man from God,
    and his power, put to the proof, rebukes the foolhardy;
    Because into a soul that plots evil, wisdom enters not,
    nor dwells she in a body under debt of sin.
    For the holy Spirit of discipline flees deceit
    and withdraws from senseless counsels;
    and when injustice occurs it is rebuked.
    For wisdom is a kindly spirit,
    yet she acquits not the blasphemer of his guilty lips;
    Because God is the witness of his inmost self
    and the sure observer of his heart
    and the listener to his tongue.
    For the Spirit of the Lord fills the world,
    is all-embracing, and knows what man says.


    PS 139:1b-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-10

    R. (24b) Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.
    O LORD, you have probed me and you know me;
    you know when I sit and when I stand;
    you understand my thoughts from afar.
    My journeys and my rest you scrutinize,
    with all my ways you are familiar.
    R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.
    Even before a word is on my tongue,
    behold, O LORD, you know the whole of it.
    Behind me and before, you hem me in
    and rest your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
    too lofty for me to attain.
    R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.
    Where can I go from your spirit?
    From your presence where can I flee?
    If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I sink to the nether world, you are present there.
    R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.
    If I take the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
    Even there your hand shall guide me,
    and your right hand hold me fast.
    R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.


    Lk 17:1-6

    Jesus said to his disciples,
    "Things that cause sin will inevitably occur,
    but woe to the one through whom they occur.
    It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck
    and he be thrown into the sea
    than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.
    Be on your guard!
    If your brother sins, rebuke him;
    and if he repents, forgive him.
    And if he wrongs you seven times in one day
    and returns to you seven times saying, 'I am sorry,'
    you should forgive him."

    And the Apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith."
    The Lord replied, "If you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
    you would say to this mulberry tree,
    'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you."
