Second Reading 2 of St Paul to the Corinthians 12:31- 13:8
A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Corinthians 12:31- 13:8
If I am without love, it will do me no good whatever.
Be ambitious for the higher gifts. And I am going to show you a way that is better than any of them.
If I have all the eloquence of men or of angels, but speak without love, I am simply a gong booming or a cymbal clashing. If I have the gift of prophecy, understanding all the mysteries there~ are, and knowing everything, and if I have faith in all its fullness, to move mountains, but without love, then I am nothing at all. If I give away all that I possess, piece by piece, and if I even let them take my body to burn it, but am without love, it will do me no good whatever.
Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous;
love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offence, and is not resentful.
Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.
Love does not come to an end.
This is the word of the Lord.
Check out the ACCORD website, they have a good selection, and they also have a section to print off your mass booklets.
Go into the booklet section and you can create an account.
Hope this helps...
There is a great post on this forum search under mass booklets......Read here (i think) Somewonderbride
If you log on to the website
under the heading Church and then Mass Booklets
there are a list of readings here to choose from as well as a lot of other information about the Mass Booklets.
The first reading should be from the Old Testament and the second from the New Testament.
Hope this helps.
