    2 Cor 9:6-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly,
    and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
    Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion,
    for God loves a cheerful giver.
    Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you,
    so that in all things, always having all you need,
    you may have an abundance for every good work.
    As it is written:

    He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor;
    his righteousness endures forever.

    The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food
    will supply and multiply your seed
    and increase the harvest of your righteousness.


    PS 112:1-2, 5-6, 7-8, 9

    R. (5) Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    Blessed the man who fears the LORD,
    who greatly delights in his commands.
    His posterity shall be mighty upon the earth;
    the upright generation shall be blessed.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    Well for the man who is gracious and lends,
    who conducts his affairs with justice;
    He shall never be moved;
    the just one shall be in everlasting remembrance.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    An evil report he shall not fear;
    his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.
    His heart is steadfast;he shall not fear
    till he looks down upon his foes.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    Lavishly he gives to the poor,
    his generosity shall endure forever;
    his horn shall be exalted in glory.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.


    Jn 12:24-26

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Amen, amen, I say to you,
    unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies,
    it remains just a grain of wheat;
    but if it dies, it produces much fruit.
    Whoever loves his life loses it,
    and whoever hates his life in this world
    will preserve it for eternal life.
    Whoever serves me must follow me,
    and where I am, there also will my servant be.
    The Father will honor whoever serves me.”


    Ordinary Time.


    Dt 10:12-22

    Moses said to the people:
    “And now, Israel, what does the LORD, your God, ask of you
    but to fear the LORD, your God, and follow his ways exactly,
    to love and serve the LORD, your God,
    with all your heart and all your soul,
    to keep the commandments and statutes of the LORD
    which I enjoin on you today for your own good?
    Think! The heavens, even the highest heavens,
    belong to the LORD, your God,
    as well as the earth and everything on it.
    Yet in his love for your fathers the LORD was so attached to them
    as to choose you, their descendants,
    in preference to all other peoples, as indeed he has now done.
    Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and be no longer stiff-necked.
    For the LORD, your God, is the God of gods,
    the LORD of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome,
    who has no favorites, accepts no bribes;
    who executes justice for the orphan and the widow,
    and befriends the alien, feeding and clothing him.
    So you too must befriend the alien,
    for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt.
    The LORD, your God, shall you fear, and him shall you serve;
    hold fast to him and swear by his name.
    He is your glory, he, your God,
    who has done for you those great and terrible things
    which your own eyes have seen.
    Your ancestors went down to Egypt seventy strong,
    and now the LORD, your God,
    has made you as numerous as the stars of the sky.”


    PS 147:12-13, 14-15, 19-20

    R. (12a) Praise the Lord, Jerusalem.
    Glorify the LORD, O Jerusalem;
    praise your God, O Zion.
    For he has strengthened the bars of your gates;
    he has blessed your children within you.
    R. Praise the Lord, Jerusalem.
    He has granted peace in your borders;
    with the best of wheat he fills you.
    He sends forth his command to the earth;
    swiftly runs his word!
    R. Praise the Lord, Jerusalem.
    He has proclaimed his word to Jacob,
    his statutes and his ordinances to Israel.
    He has not done thus for any other nation;
    his ordinances he has not made known to them. Alleluia.
    R. Praise the Lord, Jerusalem.


    Mt 17:22-27

    As Jesus and his disciples were gathering in Galilee,
    Jesus said to them,
    "The Son of Man is to be handed over to men,
    and they will kill him, and he will be raised on the third day."
    And they were overwhelmed with grief.

    When they came to Capernaum,
    the collectors of the temple tax approached Peter and said,
    "Does not your teacher pay the temple tax?"
    "Yes," he said.
    When he came into the house, before he had time to speak,
    Jesus asked him, "What is your opinion, Simon?
    From whom do the kings of the earth take tolls or census tax?
    From their subjects or from foreigners?"
    When he said, "From foreigners," Jesus said to him,
    "Then the subjects are exempt.
    But that we may not offend them, go to the sea, drop in a hook,
    and take the first fish that comes up.
    Open its mouth and you will find a coin worth twice the temple tax.
    Give that to them for me and for you."
