1st Reading 1 Corinthians 2:10-16 (Douay-Rheims Challoner text)

But, to us God, hath revealed him them, by his Spirit. For the Spirit searcheth all things, yea the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of a man  that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God; that we may know the things that are given us from God. Which things also we speak, not in the learned words of human wisdom;  but in the doctrine of the Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the sensual man receitheth not these things that are of the Spirit of God; for it is foolishness to him, and he connot understand, because it is spirituality examined. But the spiritual man judgeth all things and he himself is judged of no man.

1st Reading AD Corinthios 2:10-16 (Biblia Sacra Juxta Vulgatam Clementinam)

nobis autem revelavit Deus per Spiritum suum : Spiritus enim omnia scrutatur, etiam profunda Dei. 11 Quis enim hominum scit quæ sunt hominis, nisi spiritus hominis, qui in ipso est ? ita et quæ Dei sunt, nemo cognovit, nisi Spiritus Dei. 12 Nos autem non spiritum hujus mundi accepimus,sed Spiritum qui ex Deo est, ut sciamus quæ a Deo donata sunt nobis : 13 quæ et loquimur non in doctis
humanæ sapientiæ verbis, sed in doctrina Spiritus, spiritualibus spiritualia comparantes. 14 Animalis autem
homo non percipit ea quæ sunt Spiritus Dei : stultitiaenim est illi, et non potest intelligere : quia spiritualiter
examinatur. 15 Spiritualis autem judicat omnia : et ipse a nemine judicatur. 16 Quis enim cognovit sensum Domini, qui instruat eum ?

Gospel According to St. Luke 4:31-37 (Ronald Knox Translation)

Then he went down to Capharnaum, which is a city in Galilee, and began teaching them there on the sabbath; and they were amazed by his teaching, such was the authority with which he spoke. In the synagogue was a man who was possessed by an unclean spirit, that cried out with a loud voice: Nay, why do you meddle: with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to make an end of us? I recognize you for what you are, the Holy One of God. Jesus rebuked it; Silence! he said; come out of him. Then the unclean spirit threw him into a convulsion before them all, and went out of him without doing him any injury. Wonder fell upon them all, as they said to one another. What is this word of his? See how he has authority and power to lay his command on the unclean spirits, so that they come out! And the story of his doings spread into every part of the country-side.

EVANGELIUM SECUNDUM LUCAM 4:31-37 (Biblia Sacra Juxta Vulgatam Clementinam)

31 Et descendit in Capharnaum civitatem Galilææ, ibique docebat illos sabbatis. 32 Et stupebant in doctrina ejus, quia in potestate erat sermo ipsius. 33 Et in synagoga erat homo habens dæmonium immundum, et exclamavit voce magna, 34 dicens : Sine, quid nobis et tibi, Jesu Nazarene ? venisti perdere nos ? scio te
quis sis, Sanctus Dei. 35 Et increpavit illum Jesus, dicens: Obmutesce, et exi ab eo. Et cum projecisset illum
dæmonium in medium, exiit ab illo, nihilque illum nocuit. 36 Et factus est pavor in omnibus, et colloquebantur ad invicem, dicentes : Quod est hoc verbum, quia in potestate et virtute imperat immundis spiritibus, et exeunt? 37 Et divulgabatur fama de illo in omnem locum regionis.

Catechism of the Catholic Church 152

To Believe in the Holy Spirit

One cannot believe in Jesus Christ without sharing in his Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who reveals to men who Jesus is. For ” no one can say Jesus is Lord, except  by the Holy Spirit, who searches everything, even the depths of God… No one comprehends the thoughts of God.” Only God knows God completely: we believe in the Holy Spirit because he is God.

The Church never ceases to proclaim her faith in  only God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Catechismum Catholicae Ecclesiae 152

In Spiritum Sanctum credere

Impossibile est quempiam in Iesum Christum credere, quin ille Eius sit particeps Spiritus. Sanctus vero Spiritus hominibus revelat quis Iesus sit. Etenim « nemo potest dicere “Dominus Iesus”, nisi in Spiritu Sancto » (1 Cor 12,3). « Spiritus enim omnia scrutatur, etiam profunda Dei. […] Quae Dei sunt, nemo cognovit nisi Spiritus Dei » (1 Cor 2,10-11). Solus Deus Deum plene cognoscit. In Sanctum credimus Spiritum, quia Ille est Deus.

Ecclesia suam fidem in unum Deum, Patrem, Filium et Spiritum Sanctum confiteri non desinit.

Notes on 1 Corinthians 2:10-16 (Douay-Rheims Challoner text)

Chap 2. Ver 14, 15 The sensual man- the spiritual man. The sensual man is either he who is taken up with  sensual pleasures with carnal and worldly affections; or he who measureth divine mystries by natural reason, sense , and human wisdome only. Now such man has little or no notion of the things of God. Whereas the spiritual man is he who, in the mysteries of religion,  takes not human sense for his guiede: but submits his judgment to the decisions of the church, which he is commanded to hear and obey. For Christ hath promised to remain to the end of the world with his church., and to direct her in all things by the Spirit of truth.

[2] Ver. 10. In persona Christi, Greek: en prosopo Christou, [not only before Christ] and St. Chrysostom says, Greek: os tou Christou keleuontos. Christo jubente, though he had not done sufficient penance, nor deserved it: Greek: ou gar epeide axios esti, oude epeide archousan metanoian epedeixato.

[3] Ver. 16. Et ad hæc quis tam idoneus? but in the Greek without tam; Greek: kai pros tauta tis ikanos.

Notes on Luke 4:31-37 (Haydock Bible Commentary)

Ver. 31. Although Christ was well acquainted with the obduracy of the Jews, nevertheless, like a good physician, he condescends to pay them another visit, and try what a fresh medicine might effect in this their last stage, as it were, of existence. He publicly preaches therefore in the synagogue, according as Isaias had declared of him, and struck amazement into every heart. The Jews themselves considered him as something very extraordinary; as one of the prophets, or ancient saints. But Christ, that they might conceive a higher opinion of his person, does not make use of the expressions they did, but speaks as Lord and Master of the law. (St. Cyril)
