    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Wis 18:6-9

    The night of the passover was known beforehand to our fathers,
    that, with sure knowledge of the oaths in which they put their faith,
    they might have courage.
    Your people awaited the salvation of the just
    and the destruction of their foes.
    For when you punished our adversaries,
    in this you glorified us whom you had summoned.
    For in secret the holy children of the good were offering sacrifice
    and putting into effect with one accord the divine institution.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 33:1, 12, 18-19, 20-22

    R. (12b)
    Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.
    Exult, you just, in the LORD;
    praise from the upright is fitting.
    Blessed the nation whose God is the LORD,
    the people he has chosen for his own inheritance.
    R.Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.
    See, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him,
    upon those who hope for his kindness,
    To deliver them from death
    and preserve them in spite of famine.
    R.Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.
    Our soul waits for the LORD,
    who is our help and our shield.
    May your kindness, O LORD, be upon us
    who have put our hope in you.
    R.Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    HEB 11:1-2, 8-12

    Brothers and sisters:
    Faith is the realization of what is hoped for
    and evidence of things not seen.
    Because of it the ancients were well attested.
    By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place
    that he was to receive as an inheritance;
    he went out, not knowing where he was to go.
    By faith he sojourned in the promised land as in a foreign country,
    dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs of the same promise;
    for he was looking forward to the city with foundations,
    whose architect and maker is God.
    By faith he received power to generate,
    even though he was past the normal age
    —and Sarah herself was sterile—
    for he thought that the one who had made the promise was
    trustworthy.
    So it was that there came forth from one man,
    himself as good as dead,
    descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky
    and as countless as the sands on the seashore.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 12:32-48

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Do not be afraid any longer, little flock,
    for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.
    Sell your belongings and give alms.
    Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out,
    an inexhaustible treasure in heaven
    that no thief can reach nor moth destroy.
    For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
    "Gird your loins and light your lamps
    and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding,
    ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
    Blessed are those servants
    whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.
    Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself,
    have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them.
    And should he come in the second or third watch
    and find them prepared in this way,
    blessed are those servants.
    Be sure of this:
    if the master of the house had known the hour
    when the thief was coming,
    he would not have let his house be broken into.
    You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect,
    the Son of Man will come."
    Then Peter said,
    "Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?"
    And the Lord replied,
    "Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward
    whom the master will put in charge of his servants
    to distribute the food allowance at the proper time?
    Blessed is that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so.
    Truly, I say to you, the master will put the servant
    in charge of all his property.
    But if that servant says to himself,
    ‘My master is delayed in coming,’
    and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants,
    to eat and drink and get drunk,
    then that servant’s master will come
    on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour
    and will punish the servant severely
    and assign him a place with the unfaithful.
    That servant who knew his master’s will
    but did not make preparations nor act in accord with his will
    shall be beaten severely;
    and the servant who was ignorant of his master’s will
    but acted in a way deserving of a severe beating
    shall be beaten only lightly.
    Much will be required of the person entrusted with much,
    and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more."
