Gospel for the Tuesday of the 12th Week in Ordinary Time Cycle 1

Matthew 7:6, 12-14

Summary: Jesus warned against giving holy things to those who won't appreciate them, advised treating others kindly, and emphasized choosing the narrow path that leads to life.

The Narrow Path to Life

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.

“Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the Law and the Prophets.

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”
