    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.


    Ordinary Time.


    Sir 42:15-25

    Now will I recall God’s works;
    what I have seen, I will describe.
    At God’s word were his works brought into being;
    they do his will as he has ordained for them.
    As the rising sun is clear to all,
    so the glory of the LORD fills all his works;
    Yet even God’s holy ones must fail
    in recounting the wonders of the LORD,
    Though God has given these, his hosts, the strength
    to stand firm before his glory.
    He plumbs the depths and penetrates the heart;
    their innermost being he understands.
    The Most High possesses all knowledge,
    and sees from of old the things that are to come:
    He makes known the past and the future,
    and reveals the deepest secrets.
    No understanding does he lack;
    no single thing escapes him.
    Perennial is his almighty wisdom;
    he is from all eternity one and the same,
    With nothing added, nothing taken away;
    no need of a counselor for him!
    How beautiful are all his works!
    even to the spark and fleeting vision!
    The universe lives and abides forever;
    to meet each need, each creature is preserved.
    All of them differ, one from another,
    yet none of them has he made in vain,
    For each in turn, as it comes, is good;
    can one ever see enough of their splendor?


    PS 33:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    R. (6a) By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    Give thanks to the LORD on the harp;
    with the ten-stringed lyre chant his praises.
    Sing to him a new song;
    pluck the strings skillfully, with shouts of gladness.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    For upright is the word of the LORD
    and all his works are trustworthy.
    He loves justice and right;
    of the kindness of the LORD the earth is full.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    By the word of the LORD the heavens were made;
    by the breath of his mouth all their host.
    He gathers the waters of the sea as in a flask;
    in cellars he confines the deep.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    Let all the earth fear the LORD;
    let all who dwell in the world revere him.
    For he spoke, and it was made;
    he commanded, and it stood forth.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.


    Mark 10:46-52

    46And they came to Jericho; and as he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great multitude, Bartimae'us, a blind beggar, the son of Timae'us, was sitting by the roadside. 47And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 48And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 49And Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." And they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take heart; rise, he is calling you." 50And throwing off his mantle he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51And Jesus said to him, "What do you want me to do for you?" And the blind man said to him, "Master, let me receive my sight." 52And Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.
