    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    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.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    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]

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    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.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Phil 4:10-19

    Brothers and sisters:
    I rejoice greatly in the Lord
    that now at last you revived your concern for me.
    You were, of course, concerned about me but lacked an opportunity.
    Not that I say this because of need,
    for I have learned, in whatever situation I find myself,
    to be self-sufficient.
    I know indeed how to live in humble circumstances;
    I know also how to live with abundance.
    In every circumstance and in all things
    I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry,
    of living in abundance and of being in need.
    I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me.
    Still, it was kind of you to share in my distress.

    You Philippians indeed know that at the beginning of the Gospel,
    when I left Macedonia,
    not a single church shared with me
    in an account of giving and receiving, except you alone.
    For even when I was at Thessalonica
    you sent me something for my needs,
    not only once but more than once.
    It is not that I am eager for the gift;
    rather, I am eager for the profit that accrues to your account.
    I have received full payment and I abound.
    I am very well supplied because of what I received from you
    through Epaphroditus,
    "a fragrant aroma," an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.
    My God will fully supply whatever you need,
    in accord with his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 112:1b-2, 5-6, 8a and 9

    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    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 fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    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 fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    His heart is steadfast; he shall not fear.
    Lavishly he gives to the poor;
    his generosity shall endure forever;
    his horn shall be exalted in glory.
    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 16:9-15

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth,
    so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
    The person who is trustworthy in very small matters
    is also trustworthy in great ones;
    and the person who is dishonest in very small matters
    is also dishonest in great ones.
    If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth,
    who will trust you with true wealth?
    If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another,
    who will give you what is yours?
    No servant can serve two masters.
    He will either hate one and love the other,
    or be devoted to one and despise the other.
    You cannot serve God and mammon."

    The Pharisees, who loved money,
    heard all these things and sneered at him.
    And he said to them,
    "You justify yourselves in the sight of others,
    but God knows your hearts;
    for what is of human esteem is an abomination in the sight of God."
