    Ephesians 1:1-10

    1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints who are also faithful in Christ Jesus: 2Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. 5He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. 7In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace 8which he lavished upon us. 9For he has made known to us in all wisdom and insight the mystery of his will, according to his purpose which he set forth in Christ 10as a plan for the fulness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.


    Psalms 98:1-6

    1O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory. 2The LORD has made known his victory, he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations. 3He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God. 4Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;break forth into joyous song and sing praises! 5Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! 6With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!


    Luke 11:47-54

    47Woe to you! for you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. 48So you are witnesses and consent to the deeds of your fathers;for they killed them, and you build their tombs. 49Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, `I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,' 50that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation, 51from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechari'ah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it shall be required of this generation. 52Woe to you lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge;you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering." 53As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard, and to provoke him to speak of many things, 54lying in wait for him, to catch at something he might say.


    Ordinary Time.


    Rom 4:1-8

    Brothers and sisters:
    What can we say that Abraham found,
    our ancestor according to the flesh?
    Indeed, if Abraham was justified on the basis of his works,
    he has reason to boast;
    but this was not so in the sight of God.
    For what does the Scripture say?
    Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.
    A worker’s wage is credited not as a gift, but as something due.
    But when one does not work,
    yet believes in the one who justifies the ungodly,
    his faith is credited as righteousness.
    So also David declares the blessedness of the person
    to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

    Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven
    and whose sins are covered.
    Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not record.


    PS 32:1b-2, 5, 11

    R. (see 7) I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Blessed is he whose fault is taken away,
    whose sin is covered.
    Blessed the man to whom the LORD imputes not guilt,
    in whose spirit there is no guile.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Then I acknowledged my sin to you,
    my guilt I covered not.
    I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,”
    and you took away the guilt of my sin.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you just;
    exult, all you upright of heart.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.

    Alleluia PS 33:22

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    May your kindness, O LORD, be upon us;
    who have put our hope in you.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Lk 12:1-7

    At that time:
    So many people were crowding together
    that they were trampling one another underfoot.
    Jesus began to speak, first to his disciples,
    "Beware of the leaven--that is, the hypocrisy--of the Pharisees.

    "There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed,
    nor secret that will not be known.
    Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness
    will be heard in the light,
    and what you have whispered behind closed doors
    will be proclaimed on the housetops.
    I tell you, my friends,
    do not be afraid of those who kill the body
    but after that can do no more.
    I shall show you whom to fear.
    Be afraid of the one who after killing
    has the power to cast into Gehenna;
    yes, I tell you, be afraid of that one.
    Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins?
    Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.
    Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.
    Do not be afraid.
    You are worth more than many sparrows."
