    1 Corinthians 1:18-25

    18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart." 20Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. 22For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.


    Psalms 34:2-9

    1I will bless the LORD at all times;his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2My soul makes its boast in the LORD;let the afflicted hear and be glad. 3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! 4I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5Look to him, and be radiant;so your faces shall never be ashamed. 6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. 8O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!


    Matthew 5:13-19

    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. 15Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16Let 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. 18For 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. 19Whoever 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.

    Tb 2:9-14

    On the night of Pentecost, after I had buried the dead,
    I, Tobit, went into my courtyard
    to sleep next to the courtyard wall.
    My face was uncovered because of the heat.
    I did not know there were birds perched on the wall above me,
    till their warm droppings settled in my eyes, causing cataracts.
    I went to see some doctors for a cure
    but the more they anointed my eyes with various salves,
    the worse the cataracts became,
    until I could see no more.
    For four years I was deprived of eyesight, and
    all my kinsmen were grieved at my condition.
    Ahiqar, however, took care of me for two years,
    until he left for Elymais.

    At that time, my wife Anna worked for hire
    at weaving cloth, the kind of work women do.
    When she sent back the goods to their owners, they would pay her.
    Late in winter on the seventh of Dystrus,
    she finished the cloth and sent it back to the owners.
    They paid her the full salary
    and also gave her a young goat for the table.
    On entering my house the goat began to bleat.

    I called to my wife and said: “Where did this goat come from?
    Perhaps it was stolen! Give it back to its owners;
    we have no right to eat stolen food!”
    She said to me, “It was given to me as a bonus over and above my wages.”
    Yet I would not believe her,
    and told her to give it back to its owners.
    I became very angry with her over this.
    So she retorted: “Where are your charitable deeds now?
    Where are your virtuous acts?
    See! Your true character is finally showing itself!”


    PS 112:1-2, 7-8, 9

    R. (see 7c) The heart of the just one is firm, trusting in the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Blessed the man who fears the LORD,
    who greatly delights in his commands.
    His posterity shall be mighty upon the earth;
    the upright generation shall be blessed.
    R. The heart of the just one is firm, trusting in the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    An evil report he shall not fear;
    his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.
    His heart is steadfast;he shall not fear
    till he looks down upon his foes.
    R. The heart of the just one is firm, trusting in the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Lavishly he gives to the poor;
    his generosity shall endure forever;
    his horn shall be exalted in glory.
    R. The heart of the just one is firm, trusting in the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.


    Mk 12:13-17

    Some Pharisees and Herodians were sent
    to Jesus to ensnare him in his speech.
    They came and said to him,
    "Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man
    and that you are not concerned with anyone's opinion.
    You do not regard a person's status
    but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
    Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?
    Should we pay or should we not pay?"
    Knowing their hypocrisy he said to them,
    "Why are you testing me?
    Bring me a denarius to look at."
    They brought one to him and he said to them,
    "Whose image and inscription is this?"
    They replied to him, "Caesar's."
    So Jesus said to them,
    "Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar
    and to God what belongs to God."
    They were utterly amazed at him.
