11/02/2020 – Martes de la 5ª semana de Tiempo Ordinario – Lecturas y santos del día.

PRIMERA LECTURA
Declaraste: «Allí estará mi Nombre». Escucha la súplica de tu pueblo Israel.
Lectura del primer libro de los Reyes 8, 22-23. 27-30

En aquellos días, Salomón se puso en pie ante el altar del Señor frente a toda la asamblea de Israel, extendió las manos al cielo y dijo:

«Señor, Dios de Israel, no hay Dios como tú arriba en los cielos ni abajo en la tierra, tú que guardas la alianza y la fidelidad a tus siervos que caminan ante ti de todo corazón.

¿Habitará Dios con los hombres en la tierra? Los cielos y los cielos de los cielos no pueden contenerte, ¡cuánto menos este templo que yo te he erigido!

Inclínate a la plegaria y a la súplica de tu siervo, Señor, Dios mío. Escucha el clamor y la oración que tu siervo entona hoy en tu presencia. Que día y noche tus ojos se hallen abiertos hacia este templo, hacia este lugar del que declaraste: “Allí estará mi Nombre”. Atiende la plegaria que tu servidor entona en este lugar. Escucha la súplica que tu siervo y tu pueblo Israel entonan en este lugar. Escucha tú, hacia el lugar de tu morada, hacia el cielo, escucha y perdona».

Palabra de Dios.

Sal 83, 3. 4. 5 y 10. 11
R. ¡Qué deseables son tus moradas, Señor del universo!

Mi alma se consume y anhela
los atrios del Señor,
mi corazón y mi carne
retozan por el Dios vivo. R.

Hasta el gorrión ha encontrado una casa;
la golondrina, un nido
donde colocar sus polluelos:
tus altares, Señor del universo,
Rey mío y Dios mío. R.

Dichosos los que viven en tu casa,
alabándote siempre.
Fíjate, oh Dios, escudo nuestro ,
mira el rostro de tu Ungido. R.

Vale más un día en tus atrios
que mil en mi casa,
y prefiero el umbral de la casa de Dios
a vivir con los malvados. R.

Aleluya
R. Aleluya, aleluya, aleluya.

Inclina mi corazón, oh, Dios, a tus preceptos; y dame la gracia de tu ley. R.

EVANGELIO
Dejáis a un lado el mandamiento de Dios para aferraros a la tradición de los hombres.
Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Marcos 7, 1-13

En aquel tiempo, se reunieron junto a Jesús los fariseos y algunos escribas venidos de Jerusalén; y vieron que algunos discípulos comían con manos impuras, es decir, sin lavarse las manos. (Pues los fariseos, como los demás judíos, no comen sin lavarse antes las manos, restregando bien, aferrándose a la tradición de sus mayores, y, al volver de la plaza, no comen sin lavarse antes, y se aferran a otras muchas tradiciones, de lavar vasos, jarras y ollas.)

Y los fariseos y los escribas le preguntaron:

«¿Por qué no caminan tus discípulos según las tradiciones de los mayores y comen el pan con manos impuras?».

Él les contestó:

«Bien profetizó Isaías de vosotros, hipócritas, como está escrito:

“Este pueblo me honra con los labios, pero su corazón está lejos de mí. El culto que me dan está vacío, porque la doctrina que enseñan son preceptos humanos.”

Dejáis a un lado el mandamiento de Dios para aferraros a la tradición de los hombres».

Y añadió:

«Anuláis el mandamiento de Dios por mantener vuestra tradición. Moisés dijo: “Honra a tu padre y a tu madre” y “el que maldiga a su padre o a su madre es reo de muerte”. Pero vosotros decís: “Si uno le dice a su padre o a su madre: los bienes con que podría ayudarte son ‘corbán’, es decir, ofrenda sagrada”, ya no le permitís hacer nada por su padre o por su madre; invalidando la palabra de Dios con esa tradición que os transmitís; y hacéis otras muchas cosas semejantes».

Palabra del Señor.

READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the first book of Kings
1 KGS 8:22-23, 27-30

Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of the whole community of Israel, and stretching forth his hands toward heaven, he said, “LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below; you keep your covenant of mercy with your servants who are faithful to you with their whole heart.

“Can it indeed be that God dwells on earth?
If the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain you, how much less this temple which I have built!
Look kindly on the prayer and petition of your servant, O LORD, my God, and listen to the cry of supplication which I, your servant, utter before you this day.
May your eyes watch night and day over this temple,
the place where you have decreed you shall be honored; may you heed the prayer which I, your servant, offer in this place.
Listen to the petitions of your servant and of your people Israel which they offer in this place.
Listen from your heavenly dwelling and grant pardon.”

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Mark
MK 7:1-13

When the Pharisees with some scribes who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus, they observed that some of his disciples ate their meals with unclean, that is, unwashed, hands.
(For the Pharisees and, in fact, all Jews, do not eat without carefully washing their hands, keeping the tradition of the elders.
And on coming from the marketplace they do not eat without purifying themselves.
And there are many other things that they have traditionally observed, the purification of cups and jugs and kettles and beds.)
So the Pharisees and scribes questioned him,
“Why do your disciples not follow the tradition of the elders but instead eat a meal with unclean hands?”
He responded, “Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites, as it is written:

This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines human precepts.

You disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition.”
He went on to say, “How well you have set aside the commandment of God in order to uphold your tradition!
For Moses said, Honor your father and your mother, and Whoever curses father or mother shall die.
Yet you say, ‘If someone says to father or mother, “Any support you might have had from me is qorban”’ (meaning, dedicated to God), you allow him to do nothing more for his father or mother.
You nullify the word of God in favor of your tradition that you have handed on.
And you do many such things.”

 

ST. SOTERA,VIRGIN AND MARTYR ON THE VIA APPIA

Young and of noble family, but humble spirit, she dedicated herself to works of charity. She was arrested in 304 during the persecutions unleashed by the Emperor Diocletian. She faced her torturers with courage, and still refusing to deny the faith, she was beheaded.
