Reading 1 2 Jn 4-9
...For this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, as you heard from the beginning,
in which you should walk. Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh;
such is the deceitful one and the antichrist. Look to yourselves that you do not lose what we worked for but may receive a full recompense.
Anyone who is so “progressive” as not to remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God; whoever remains in the teaching has the Father and the Son.
Responsorial Psalm Ps 119:1, 2, 10, 11, 17, 18
R. (1b) Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord!
Blessed are they whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the LORD.
Blessed are they who observe his decrees, who seek him with all their heart.
With all my heart I seek you; let me not stray from your commands.
Within my heart I treasure your promise, that I may not sin against you.
Be good to your servant, that I may live and keep your words.
Open my eyes, that I may consider the wonders of your law.
