    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.'"

    1 Kgs 17:10-16

    In those days, Elijah the prophet went to Zarephath.
    As he arrived at the entrance of the city,
    a widow was gathering sticks there; he called out to her,
    "Please bring me a small cupful of water to drink."
    She left to get it, and he called out after her,
    "Please bring along a bit of bread."
    She answered, "As the LORD, your God, lives,
    I have nothing baked; there is only a handful of flour in my jar
    and a little oil in my jug.
    Just now I was collecting a couple of sticks,
    to go in and prepare something for myself and my son;
    when we have eaten it, we shall die."
    Elijah said to her, "Do not be afraid.
    Go and do as you propose.
    But first make me a little cake and bring it to me.
    Then you can prepare something for yourself and your son.
    For the LORD, the God of Israel, says,
    'The jar of flour shall not go empty,
    nor the jug of oil run dry,
    until the day when the LORD sends rain upon the earth.'"
    She left and did as Elijah had said.
    She was able to eat for a year, and he and her son as well;
    the jar of flour did not go empty,
    nor the jug of oil run dry,
    as the LORD had foretold through Elijah.


    Ps 146:7, 8-9, 9-10

    R. (1b)
    Praise the Lord, my soul!
    The LORD keeps faith forever,
    secures justice for the oppressed,
    gives food to the hungry.
    The LORD sets captives free.
    R.Praise the Lord, my soul!
    The LORD gives sight to the blind.
    The LORD raises up those who were bowed down;
    the LORD loves the just.
    The LORD protects strangers.
    R.Praise the Lord, my soul!
    The fatherless and the widow he sustains,
    but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
    The LORD shall reign forever;
    your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia.
    R.Praise the Lord, my soul!


    Heb 9:24-28

    Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands,
    a copy of the true one, but heaven itself,
    that he might now appear before God on our behalf.
    Not that he might offer himself repeatedly,
    as the high priest enters each year into the sanctuary
    with blood that is not his own;
    if that were so, he would have had to suffer repeatedly
    from the foundation of the world.
    But now once for all he has appeared at the end of the ages
    to take away sin by his sacrifice.
    Just as it is appointed that human beings die once,
    and after this the judgment, so also Christ,
    offered once to take away the sins of many,
    will appear a second time, not to take away sin
    but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him.


    Mk 12:38-44

    In the course of his teaching Jesus said to the crowds,
    "Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes
    and accept greetings in the marketplaces,
    seats of honor in synagogues,
    and places of honor at banquets.
    They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext
    recite lengthy prayers.
    They will receive a very severe condemnation."
    He sat down opposite the treasury
    and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury.
    Many rich people put in large sums.
    A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents.
    Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them,
    "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more
    than all the other contributors to the treasury.
    For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth,
    but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had,
    her whole livelihood."
