1 Timothy 3:14-16
At the moment of writing to you, I am hoping that I may be with you soon; but in case I should be delayed, I wanted you to know how people ought to behave in Godâ€™s familyÂ â€“ that is, in the Church of the living God, which upholds the truth and keeps it safe. Without any doubt, the mystery of our religion is very deep indeed:
He was made visible in the flesh,
attested by the Spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed to the pagans,
believed in by the world,
taken up in glory.
Psalm or canticle
Jesus said to the people: â€˜What description can I find for the men of this generation? What are they like? They are like children shouting to one another while they sit in the market-place:
â€˜â€œWe played the pipes for you,
and you wouldnâ€™t dance;
we sang dirges,
and you wouldnâ€™t cry.â€
â€˜For John the Baptist comes, not eating bread, not drinking wine, and you say, â€œHe is possessed.â€ The Son of Man comes, eating and drinking, and you say, â€œLook, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.â€ Yet Wisdom has been proved right by all her children.â€™
