First Corinthians 10: 14- 22

10:14 Because of this, most beloved of mine, flee from the worship of idols.
10:15 Since I am speaking to those who are prudent, judge what I say for yourselves.
10:16 The cup of benediction that we bless, is it not a communion in the Blood of Christ? And the bread that we break, is it not a participation in the Body of the Lord?
10:17 Through the one bread, we, though many, are one body: all of us who are partakers of the one bread.
10:18 Consider Israel, according to the flesh. Are not those who eat from the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
10:19 What is next? Should I say that what is immolated to idols is anything? Or that the idol is anything?
10:20 But the things that the Gentiles immolate, they immolate to demons, and not to God. And I do not want you to become partakers with demons.
10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of demons. You cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord, and partakers of the table of demons.
10:22 Or should we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he is? All is lawful to me, but not all is expedient.


John 19: 25- 27

19:25 And standing beside the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, and Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
19:26 Therefore, when Jesus had seen his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son.”
19:27 Next, he said to the disciple, “Behold your mother.” And from that hour, the disciple accepted her as his own.
