Reading 1: 2 COR 11:1-11

The first reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

I wish that you would bear with me in a little foolishness, but indeed you do bear with me.

For I am jealous over you with a godly jealousy. For I promised you in marriage to one husband, that I might present you as a pure virgin to Christ.

But I am afraid that somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve in his craftiness, so your minds might be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we didn’t preach, or if you receive a different spirit which you didn’t receive, or a different “good news” which you didn’t accept, you put up with that well enough.

For I reckon that I am not at all behind the very best apostles.

But though I am unskilled in speech, yet I am not unskilled in knowledge. No, in every way we have been revealed to you in all things.

Or did I commit a sin in humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached to you God’s Good News free of charge?

I robbed other assemblies, taking wages from them that I might serve you.

When I was present with you and was in need, I wasn’t a burden on anyone, for the brothers, when they came from Macedonia, supplied the measure of my need. In everything I kept myself from being burdensome to you, and I will continue to do so.

As the truth of Christ is in me, no one will stop me from this boasting in the regions of Achaia.

Why? Because I don’t love you? God knows.

Gospel of the Day: MT 6:7-15

From the gospel scripture according to Matthew.

“In praying, don’t use vain repetitions as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking.

Therefore don’t be like them, for your Father knows what things you need before you ask him.

Pray like this: “‘Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.

Let your Kingdom come. Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors.

Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.’_”

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you don’t forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”_”
