Brothers and sisters: To me, the very least of all the holy ones, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for all what is the plan of the mystery hidden from ages past in God who created all things, so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the Church to the principalities and authorities in the heavens. This was according to the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness of speech and confidence of access through faith in him.
R. (12) Lord, teach me your statutes. How shall a young man be faultless in his way? By keeping to your words. R. Lord, teach me your statutes. With all my heart I seek you; let me not stray from your commands. R. Lord, teach me your statutes. Within my heart I treasure your promise, that I may not sin against you. R. Lord, teach me your statutes. Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your statutes. R. Lord, teach me your statutes. With my lips I declare all the ordinances of your mouth. R. Lord, teach me your statutes. In the way of your decrees I rejoice, as much as in all riches. R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
Jesus said to his disciples: "A good tree does not bear rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For people do not pick figs from thornbushes, nor do they gather grapes from brambles. A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good, but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil; for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks."
