Scripture Corner:


First Reading: Isaiah 45:1, 4-6 Cyrus, King of Persia and friend to the Jewish people, becomes the Lords anointed one, and through Gods intervention, returns the Jews to their own country.Second Reading: 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5b Paul rejoices that the Thessalonians, newly converted to Christianity, are displaying remarkable constancy in their new-found faith. Gospel: Matthew 22:15-21 Seeking to entrap Jesus in his speech, the hostile and hypocritical Pharisees ask him this dangerous question, Is it lawful to pay tax to the emperor or not? Realizing their treacherous motives, Jesus asks for a Roman coin, and pointing to the inscription of Caesars, he answers, Give to Caesar what is Caesars, but give to God what is Gods.
