    Titus 1:1-9

    1Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to further the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth which accords with godliness, 2in hope of eternal life which God, who never lies, promised ages ago 3and at the proper time manifested in his word through the preaching with which I have been entrusted by command of God our Savior; 4To Titus, my true child in a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior. 5This is why I left you in Crete, that you might amend what was defective, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you, 6if any man is blameless, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of being profligate or insubordinate. 7For a bishop, as God's steward, must be blameless; he must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, 8but hospitable, a lover of goodness, master of himself, upright, holy, and self-controlled; 9he must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it.


    Psalms 24:1-6

    1The earth is the LORD's and the fulness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein; 2for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers. 3Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. 5He will receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation. 6Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]


    Luke 17:1-6

    1And he said to his disciples, "Temptations to sin are sure to come; but woe to him by whom they come! 2It would be better for him if a millstone were hung round his neck and he were cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. 3Take heed to yourselves; if your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him; 4and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, and says, `I repent,' you must forgive him." 5The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith!" 6And the Lord said, "If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamine tree, `Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.

    Wis 7:22b–8:1

    In Wisdom is a spirit
    intelligent, holy, unique,
    Manifold, subtle, agile,
    clear, unstained, certain,
    Not baneful, loving the good, keen,
    unhampered, beneficent, kindly,
    Firm, secure, tranquil,
    all-powerful, all-seeing,
    And pervading all spirits,
    though they be intelligent, pure and very subtle.
    For Wisdom is mobile beyond all motion,
    and she penetrates and pervades all things by reason of her purity.
    For she is an aura of the might of God
    and a pure effusion of the glory of the Almighty;
    therefore nought that is sullied enters into her.
    For she is the refulgence of eternal light,
    the spotless mirror of the power of God,
    the image of his goodness.
    And she, who is one, can do all things,
    and renews everything while herself perduring;
    And passing into holy souls from age to age,
    she produces friends of God and prophets.
    For there is nought God loves, be it not one who dwells with Wisdom.
    For she is fairer than the sun
    and surpasses every constellation of the stars.
    Compared to light, she takes precedence;
    for that, indeed, night supplants,
    but wickedness prevails not over Wisdom.

    Indeed, she reaches from end to end mightily
    and governs all things well.


    PS 119:89, 90, 91, 130, 135, 175

    R. (89a) Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Your word, O LORD, endures forever;
    it is firm as the heavens.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Through all generations your truth endures;
    you have established the earth, and it stands firm.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    According to your ordinances they still stand firm:
    all things serve you.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    The revelation of your words sheds light,
    giving understanding to the simple.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Let your countenance shine upon your servant,
    and teach me your statutes.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Let my soul live to praise you,
    and may your ordinances help me.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.


    Lk 17:20-25

    Asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come,
    Jesus said in reply,
    "The coming of the Kingdom of God cannot be observed,
    and no one will announce, 'Look, here it is,' or, 'There it is.'
    For behold, the Kingdom of God is among you."

    Then he said to his disciples,
    "The days will come when you will long to see
    one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.
    There will be those who will say to you,
    'Look, there he is,' or 'Look, here he is.'
    Do not go off, do not run in pursuit.
    For just as lightning flashes
    and lights up the sky from one side to the other,
    so will the Son of Man be in his day.
    But first he must suffer greatly and be rejected by this generation."
