Tuesday of the Sixth Week of the Cross



First Letter to the Corinthians 1,10-17.
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you should be in agreement and that there should be no divisions among you, but that you should be united in the same mind and the same purpose.
For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there are quarrels among you, my brothers and sisters.
What I mean is that each of you says, ‘I belong to Paul’, or ‘I belong to Apollos’, or ‘I belong to Cephas’, or ‘I belong to Christ.’
Has Christ been divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,
so that no one can say that you were baptized in my name.
(I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.)
For Christ did not send me to baptize but to proclaim the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its power.


Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 18,1-8.
Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.
He said, ‘In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people.
In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, "Grant me justice against my opponent."
For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, "Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone,
yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming." ’
And the Lord said, ‘Listen to what the unjust judge says.
And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them?
I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?’
