    Leviticus 19:1-2, 11-18

    1And the LORD said to Moses, 2"Say to all the congregation of the people of Israel, You shall be holy;for I the LORD your God am holy. 11"You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. 12And you shall not swear by my name falsely, and so profane the name of your God: I am the LORD. 13"You shall not oppress your neighbor or rob him. The wages of a hired servant shall not remain with you all night until the morning. 14You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am the LORD. 15"You shall do no injustice in judgment;you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor. 16You shall not go up and down as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand forth against the life of your neighbor: I am the LORD. 17"You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason with your neighbor, lest you bear sin because of him. 18You shall not take vengeance or bear any grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.


    Psalms 19:8-10, 15

    7The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul;the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;8the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;9the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever;the ordinances of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. 14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.


    Matthew 25:31-46

    31"When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. 34Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;35for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' 37Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? 38And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? 39And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' 40And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.' 41Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;42for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' 44Then they also will answer, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?' 45Then he will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.' 46And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

    lv 19:1-2, 17-18

    The LORD said to Moses,
    "Speak to the whole Israelite community and tell them:
    Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy.
    "You shall not bear hatred for your brother or sister in your heart.
    Though you may have to reprove your fellow citizen,
    do not incur sin because of him.
    Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against any of your people.
    You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    I am the LORD."


    ps 103:1-2, 3-4, 8, 10, 12-13

    R/ (8a)
    The Lord is kind and merciful.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul;
    and all my being, bless his holy name.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits.
    The Lord is kind and merciful.
    He pardons all your iniquities,
    heals all your ills.
    He redeems your life from destruction,
    crowns you with kindness and compassion.
    The Lord is kind and merciful.
    Merciful and gracious is the LORD,
    slow to anger and abounding in kindness.
    Not according to our sins does he deal with us,
    nor does he requite us according to our crimes.
    The Lord is kind and merciful.
    As far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he put our transgressions from us.
    As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.
    The Lord is kind and merciful.


    1 cor 3:16-23

    Brothers and sisters:
    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.
    Let no one deceive himself.
    If any one among you considers himself wise in this age,
    let him become a fool, so as to become wise.
    For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in the eyes of God,
    for it is written:
    God catches the wise in their own ruses
    and again:
    The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
    So let no one boast about human beings, for everything belongs to you,
    Paul or Apollos or Cephas,
    or the world or life or death,
    or the present or the future:
    all belong to you, and you to Christ, and Christ to God.


    mt 5:38-48

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "You have heard that it was said,
    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
    But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil.
    When someone strikes you on your right cheek,
    turn the other one as well.
    If anyone wants to go to law with you over your tunic,
    hand over your cloak as well.
    Should anyone press you into service for one mile,
    go for two miles.
    Give to the one who asks of you,
    and do not turn your back on one who wants to borrow.
    "You have heard that it was said,
    You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.
    But I say to you, love your enemies
    and pray for those who persecute you,
    that you may be children of your heavenly Father,
    for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good,
    and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.
    For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have?
    Do not the tax collectors do the same?
    And if you greet your brothers only,
    what is unusual about that?
    Do not the pagans do the same?
    So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect."
