Matthew 25:31-46 

31 When the Son of Man comes in his glory with all his angels, he will sit on the throne of his glory.

32 All the nations will be brought before him; and, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,

33 so will he do with them, placing the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left.

34 The king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, blessed of my Father! Take possession of the kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world.

35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink.

36 I was a stranger, and you welcomed me into your home. I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to see me.’

37 Then the righteous will ask him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, and give you food; thirsty, and give you something to drink;

38 or a stranger, and welcome you; or naked, and clothe you?

39 When did we see you sick, or in prison, and go to see you?’

40 The king will answer, ‘Truly I say to you: just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did it to me.’

41 Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Go, cursed people, out of my sight, into the eternal fire, which has been prepared for the devil and his angels!

42 For I was hungry, and you did not give me anything to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink;

43 I was a stranger, and you did not welcome me into your house; I was naked, and you did not clothe me; I was sick, and in prison, and you did not visit me.’

44 They, too, will ask, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, thirsty, naked or a stranger, sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 The king will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you: just as you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me.’

46 And these will go into eternal punishment; but the just, to eternal life.”

Matthew 4:1-11 

1 Then the Spirit led Jesus into the desert, that he might be put to the test by the devil.

2 After Jesus fasted forty days and nights he was famished.

3 Then the tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, order these stones to turn into bread.”

4 But Jesus answered, “Scripture says: One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

5 Then the devil took Jesus to the Holy City, set him on the highest wall of the temple, and said to him,

6 “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for scripture says: God has given orders to his angels concerning you. Their hands will hold you up, lest you hurt your foot against a stone.”

7 Jesus answered, “But scripture also says: You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.”

8 Then the devil took Jesus to a very high mountain, and showed him all the nations of the world in all their greatness and splendor. And he said,

9 “All this I will give you, if you kneel down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus answered, “Be off, Satan! Scripture says: Worship the Lord your God and serve him alone!”

11 Then the devil left him; and angels came to serve him.

Mark 9:30-37 

30 After leaving that place, they made their way through Galilee; but Jesus did not want people to know where he was

31 because he was teaching his disciples. And he told them, “The Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, but three days after he has been killed, he will rise.”

32 The disciples, however, did not understand these words and they were afraid to ask him what he meant.

33 They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house, Jesus asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?”

34 But they did not answer, because they had been arguing about who was the greatest. 

35 Then he sat down, called the Twelve and said to them, “If someone wants to be first, let him be last of all and servant of all.”

36 Then he took a little child, placed him in their midst, and putting his arms around him he said to them,

37 “Whoever welcomes a child such as this in my name, welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me, welcomes not me, but the One who sent me.”

Luke 5:27-32

27 After this, Jesus went out, and noticing a tax collector named Levi, sitting in the tax-office, he said to him, “Follow me!”

28 So Levi, leaving everything, got up and followed Jesus.

29 Levi gave a great feast for Jesus, and many tax collectors came to his house, and took their places at the table with the other people.

30 Then the Pharisees and their followers complained to Jesus’ disciples, “How is it, left that you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?”

31 But Jesus spoke up, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor, but sick people do.

32 I have not come to call the just, but sinners, to a change of heart.”

Mark 9:14-29

14 When they came to the place where they had left the disciples, they saw many people around them and some teachers of the law arguing with them.

15 When the people saw Jesus, they were astonished and ran to greet him.

16 He asked, “What are you arguing about with them?”

17 A man answered him from the crowd, “Master, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit, deaf and mute.

18 Whenever the spirit seizes him, it throws him down and he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth and becomes stiff all over. I asked your disciples to drive the spirit out, but they could not.”

19 Jesus replied, “You faithless people! How long must I be with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring him to me.”

20 And they brought the boy to him. As soon as the spirit saw Jesus, it shook and convulsed the boy, who fell on the ground and began rolling about, foaming at the mouth.

21 Then Jesus asked the father, “How long has this been happening to him?” He replied, “From childhood.

22 And it has often thrown him into the fi re and into the water to destroy him. If you can do anything, have pity on us and help us.”

23 Jesus said to him, “Why do you say, ‘If you can?’ All things are possible for one who believes.”

24 Immediately, the father of the boy cried out, “I do believe, but help the little faith I have.”

25 Jesus saw that the crowd was increasing rapidly, so he ordered the evil spirit, “Dumb and deaf spirit, I command you: Leave the boy and never enter him again.”

26 The evil spirit shook and convulsed the boy and with a terrible shriek came out. The boy lay like a corpse and people said, “He is dead.”

27 But Jesus took him by the hand and raised him; and the boy stood up.

28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive out the spirit?”

29 And he answered, “Only prayer can drive out this kind, nothing else.”

Matthew 9:14-15

14 Then the disciples of John came to him with the question, “How is it, that we and the Pharisees fast on many occasions, but not your disciples?”

15 Jesus answered them, “How can you expect wedding guests to mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The time will come, when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then, they will fast.

Matthew 5:38-48

38 You have heard, that it was said: An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

39 But I tell you this: do not oppose evil with evil; if someone slaps you on your right cheek, turn and offer the other.

40 If someone sues you in court for your shirt, give him your coat as well.

41 If someone forces you to go one mile, go two miles with him.

42 Give when asked, and do not turn your back on anyone who wants to borrow from you.

43 You have heard, that it was said: Love your neighbor and do not do good to your enemy.

44 But this I tell you love your enemies; and pray for those who persecute you,

45 so that you may be children of your Father in Heaven. For he makes his sun rise on both the wicked and the good; and he gives rain to both the just and the unjust.

46 If you love those who love you, what is special about that? Do not even tax collectors do as much?

47 And if you are friendly only to your friends, what is so exceptional about that? Do not even the pagans do as much?

48 As for you, be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

22 And he added, “The Son of Man must suffer many things. He will be rejected by the elders and chief priests and teachers of the law, and be put to death. Then after three days he will be raised to life.”

23 Jesus also said to all the people, “If you wish to be a follower of mine, deny yourself and take up your cross each day, and follow me!

24 For if you choose to save your life, you will lose it; but if you lose your life for my sake, you will save it.

25 What does it profit you to gain the whole world, if you destroy or damage yourself?

Matthew 16:13-19

13 After that, Jesus came to Caesarea Philippi. He asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”

14 They said, “For some of them, you are John the Baptist; for others Elijah, or Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”

15 Jesus asked them, “But you, who do you say I am?”

16 Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus replied, “It is well for you, Simon Barjona, for it is not flesh or blood that has revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven.

18 And now I say to you: You are Peter; and on this Rock I will build my Church; and never will the powers of death overcome it.

19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you unbind on earth shall be unbound in heaven.”

Matthew 6:1-6

1 Be careful not to make a show of your good deeds before people. If you do so, you do not gain any thing from your Father in heaven.

2 When you give something to the poor, do not have it trumpeted be fore you, as do those who want to be noticed in the synagogues and in the streets, in order to be praised by people. I assure you, they have their reward.

3 If you give something to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

4 so that your gift remains really secret. Your Father, who sees what is kept secret, will reward you.

5 When you pray, do not be like those who want to be noticed. They love to stand and pray in the synagogues or on street corners, in order to be seen by everyone. I assure you, they have their reward.

6 When you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father who is with you in secret; and your Father who sees what is kept secret will re ward you.

Mark 8:34-9:1

34 Then Jesus called the people and his disciples, and said, “If you want to follow me, deny yourself; take up your cross and follow me.

35 For if you choose to save your life, you will lose it; and if you lose your life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, you will save it.

36 What good is it, to gain the whole world, while destroying your soul?

37 There is nothing more precious than your soul.

38 I tell you, if anyone is ashamed of me and of my words, among this adulterous and sinful people, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

1 And he went on to say, “Truly I tell you, there are some here who will not die before they see the kingdom of God coming with power.”
