Lectio Epistolae Beati Pauli Apostoli ad Corinthios – Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
1 Corinthians 5 : 7-8
Fratres : Expurgate vetus fermentum, ut sitis nova conspersio, sicut estis azymi. Etenim Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus. Itaque epulemur : non in fermento veteri, neque in fermento malitiae et nequitiae : sed in azymis sinceritatis et veritatis.
Brethren, purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new paste, as you are unleavened, for Christ our Paschal Lamb has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us feast, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
