Reading 2: 1 THES 1:5C-10

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians.

You know what kind of men we showed ourselves to be among you for your sake.

You became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all who believe in Macedonia and in Achaia.

For from you the word of the Lord has been declared, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith toward God has gone out, so that we need not to say anything.

For they themselves report concerning us what kind of a reception we had from you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead: Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath to come.

Gospel of the Day: MT 22:34-40

From the gospel scripture according to Matthew.

But the Pharisees, when they heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, gathered themselves together.

One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?”

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

This is the first and great commandment.

A second likewise is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”
