    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.


    Rom 16:3-9, 16, 22-27

    Brothers and sisters:
    Greet Prisca and Aquila, my co-workers in Christ Jesus,
    who risked their necks for my life,
    to whom not only I am grateful but also all the churches of the Gentiles;
    greet also the Church at their house.
    Greet my beloved Epaenetus,
    who was the firstfruits in Asia for Christ.
    Greet Mary, who has worked hard for you.
    Greet Andronicus and Junia,
    my relatives and my fellow prisoners;
    they are prominent among the Apostles
    and they were in Christ before me.
    Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord.
    Greet Urbanus, our co-worker in Christ,
    and my beloved Stachys.
    Greet one another with a holy kiss.
    All the churches of Christ greet you.

    I, Tertius, the writer of this letter, greet you in the Lord.
    Gaius, who is host to me and to the whole Church, greets you.
    Erastus, the city treasurer,
    and our brother Quartus greet you.

    Now to him who can strengthen you,
    according to my Gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ,
    according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret for long ages
    but now manifested through the prophetic writings and,
    according to the command of the eternal God,
    made known to all nations to bring about the obedience of faith,
    to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ
    be glory forever and ever. Amen.


    PS 145:2-3, 4-5, 10-11

    R. (1b) I will praise your name for ever, Lord.
    Every day will I bless you,
    and I will praise your name forever and ever.
    Great is the LORD and highly to be praised;
    his greatness is unsearchable.
    R. I will praise your name for ever, Lord.
    Generation after generation praises your works
    and proclaims your might.
    They speak of the splendor of your glorious majesty
    and tell of your wondrous works.
    R. I will praise your name for ever, Lord.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. I will praise your name for ever, Lord.

    Alleluia 2 Cor 8:9

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Jesus Christ became poor although he was rich,
    so that by his poverty you might become rich.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    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."
