    Titus 2:1-8, 11-14

    1But as for you, teach what befits sound doctrine. 2Bid the older men be temperate, serious, sensible, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. 3Bid the older women likewise to be reverent in behavior, not to be slanderers or slaves to drink; they are to teach what is good, 4and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5to be sensible, chaste, domestic, kind, and submissive to their husbands, that the word of God may not be discredited. 6Likewise urge the younger men to control themselves. 7Show yourself in all respects a model of good deeds, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity, 8and sound speech that cannot be censured, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of us. 11For the grace of God has appeared for the salvation of all men, 12training us to renounce irreligion and worldly passions, and to live sober, upright, and godly lives in this world, 13awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all iniquity and to purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds.


    Psalms 37:3-4, 18, 23, 27, 29

    3Trust in the LORD, and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 18The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will abide for ever; 23The steps of a man are from the LORD, and he establishes him in whose way he delights; 27Depart from evil, and do good; so shall you abide for ever. 29The righteous shall possess the land, and dwell upon it for ever.


    Luke 17:7-10

    7"Will any one of you, who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep, say to him when he has come in from the field, `Come at once and sit down at table'? 8Will he not rather say to him, `Prepare supper for me, and gird yourself and serve me, till I eat and drink; and afterward you shall eat and drink'? 9Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? 10So you also, when you have done all that is commanded you, say, `We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.'"


    Ordinary Time.


    Wis 13:1-9

    All men were by nature foolish who were in ignorance of God,
    and who from the good things seen did not succeed in knowing him who is,
    and from studying the works did not discern the artisan;
    But either fire, or wind, or the swift air,
    or the circuit of the stars, or the mighty water,
    or the luminaries of heaven, the governors of the world, they considered gods.
    Now if out of joy in their beauty they thought them gods,
    let them know how far more excellent is the Lord than these;
    for the original source of beauty fashioned them.
    Or if they were struck by their might and energy,
    let them from these things realize how much more powerful is he who made them.
    For from the greatness and the beauty of created things
    their original author, by analogy, is seen.
    But yet, for these the blame is less;
    For they indeed have gone astray perhaps,
    though they seek God and wish to find him.
    For they search busily among his works,
    but are distracted by what they see, because the things seen are fair.
    But again, not even these are pardonable.
    For if they so far succeeded in knowledge
    that they could speculate about the world,
    how did they not more quickly find its Lord?


    PS 19:2-3, 4-5ab

    R. (2a) The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
    The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    Day pours out the word to day,
    and night to night imparts knowledge.
    R. The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
    Not a word nor a discourse
    whose voice is not heard;
    Through all the earth their voice resounds,
    and to the ends of the world, their message.
    R. The heavens proclaim the glory of God.


    Lk 17:26-37

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "As it was in the days of Noah,
    so it will be in the days of the Son of Man;
    they were eating and drinking,
    marrying and giving in marriage up to the day
    that Noah entered the ark,
    and the flood came and destroyed them all.
    Similarly, as it was in the days of Lot:
    they were eating, drinking, buying,
    selling, planting, building;
    on the day when Lot left Sodom,
    fire and brimstone rained from the sky to destroy them all.
    So it will be on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
    On that day, someone who is on the housetop
    and whose belongings are in the house
    must not go down to get them,
    and likewise one in the field
    must not return to what was left behind.
    Remember the wife of Lot.
    Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it,
    but whoever loses it will save it.
    I tell you, on that night there will be two people in one bed;
    one will be taken, the other left.
    And there will be two women grinding meal together;
    one will be taken, the other left."
    They said to him in reply, "Where, Lord?"
    He said to them, "Where the body is,
    there also the vultures will gather."
