First Reading - 1 Corinthians 2:10-16 - TUESDAY OF WEEK 22, IN ORDINARY TIME --- SPIRIT OF GOD --- Pope Francis's reflection




TUESDAY OF WEEK 22, IN ORDINARY TIME
First reading
1 Corinthians 2:10-16 ©
The Spirit reaches the depths of everything, even the depths of God. After all, the depths of a man can only be known by his own spirit, not by any other man, and in the same way the depths of God can only be known by the Spirit of God. Now instead of the spirit of the world, we have received the Spirit that comes from God, to teach us to understand the gifts that he has given us. Therefore we teach, not in the way in which philosophy is taught, but in the way that the Spirit teaches us: we teach spiritual things spiritually. An unspiritual person is one who does not accept anything of the Spirit of God: he sees it all as nonsense; it is beyond his understanding because it can only be understood by means of the Spirit. A spiritual man, on the other hand, is able to judge the value of everything, and his own value is not to be judged by other men. As scripture says: Who can know the mind of the Lord, so who can teach him? But we are those who have the mind of Christ.

[1Kor:2:10] Alla rrivelahulna permezz ta' l-Ispirtu; għax l-Ispirtu jgħarbel kollox, sa fil-qiegħ ta' Alla. [1Kor:2:11] Min qatt għaraf dak li hemm moħbi fil-bniedem jekk mhux l-ispirtu tal-bniedem li hemm fih? Hekk ukoll ħadd ma jagħraf dak li hemm f'Alla ħlief l-Ispirtu ta' Alla. [1Kor:2:12] Aħna ma ħadniex l-ispirtu ta' din id-dinja, imma l-Ispirtu ta' Alla, biex nagħrfu d-doni li Alla għoġbu jagħtina. [1Kor:2:13] Dawn il-ħwejjeġ ħabbarnihomlkom bi kliem li ma tgħallimniehx mill-għerf tal-bnedmin, imma mill-Ispirtu, u fissirna ħwejjeġ spiritwali lil nies spiritwali. [1Kor:2:14] Il-bniedem naturali ma jilqax il-ħwejjeġ ta' l-Ispirtu ta' Alla; għalih huma kollha bluha, ma jistax jifhimhom, għaliex ħadd ma jista' jgħarbilhom jekk mhux bl-Ispirtu. [1Kor:2:15] Il-bniedem spiritwali jgħarbel kollox, u lilu ma jgħarblu ħadd. [1Kor:2:16] Min hu dak li jista' jifhem il-ħsieb tal-Mulej biex ikun jisra’ jgħallmu?
 Imma aħna, aħna għandna fina l-ħsieb ta’ Kristu.
