Tuesday of the Eighth week of the Cross

First Letter to the Corinthians 10,14-24.
Therefore, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols.
I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say.
The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ?
Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.
Consider the people of Israel; are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar?
What do I imply then? That food sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything?
No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons.
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.
Or are we provoking the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?
‘All things are lawful’, but not all things are beneficial. ‘All things are lawful’, but not all things build up.
Do not seek your own advantage, but that of others.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 13,47-53.

‘Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of every kind;
when it was full, they drew it ashore, sat down, and put the good into baskets but threw out the bad.
So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous
and throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
‘Have you understood all this?’ They answered, ‘Yes.’
And he said to them, ‘Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.’
When Jesus had finished these parables, he left that place.
