Your Word Is a Lamp to My Feet
First Reading GALATIANS 5:1-6
1For freedom Christ has set us free; stand fast therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. 2Now I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you. 3I testify again to every man who receives circumcision that he is bound to keep the whole law. 4You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace. 5For through the Spirit, by faith, we wait for the hope of righteousness. 6For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is of any avail, but faith working through love.
Responsorial Psalm PSALMS 119:41, 43, 45, 47-48
41Let thy steadfast love come to me, O LORD, thy salvation according to thy promise; 43And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in thy ordinances. 45and I shall walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts. 47for I find my delight in thy commandments, which I love. 48I revere thy commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on thy statutes.
Gospel LUKE 11:37-41
37While he was speaking, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him; so he went in and sat at table. 38The Pharisee was astonished to see that he did not first wash before dinner. 39And the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of extortion and wickedness. 40You fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside also? 41But give for alms those things which are within; and behold, everything is clean for you.
