Today’s Readings

Ps 1:1
Blessed is the man
        Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
           Nor stands in the path of sinners,
           Nor sits in the seat of the scornful.

Matt 4:23-end ; Matt 5:1-16
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. Great multitudes followed Him--from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan. And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:
        "Blessed are the poor in spirit,
           For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
        Blessed are those who mourn,
           For they shall be comforted.
        Blessed are the meek,
           For they shall inherit the earth.
        Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
           For they shall be filled.
        Blessed are the merciful,
           For they shall obtain mercy.
        Blessed are the pure in heart,
           For they shall see God.
        Blessed are the peacemakers,
           For they shall be called sons of God.
        Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake,
           For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

"Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
