    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.'"

    Wis 7:22b–8:1

    In Wisdom is a spirit
    intelligent, holy, unique,
    Manifold, subtle, agile,
    clear, unstained, certain,
    Not baneful, loving the good, keen,
    unhampered, beneficent, kindly,
    Firm, secure, tranquil,
    all-powerful, all-seeing,
    And pervading all spirits,
    though they be intelligent, pure and very subtle.
    For Wisdom is mobile beyond all motion,
    and she penetrates and pervades all things by reason of her purity.
    For she is an aura of the might of God
    and a pure effusion of the glory of the Almighty;
    therefore nought that is sullied enters into her.
    For she is the refulgence of eternal light,
    the spotless mirror of the power of God,
    the image of his goodness.
    And she, who is one, can do all things,
    and renews everything while herself perduring;
    And passing into holy souls from age to age,
    she produces friends of God and prophets.
    For there is nought God loves, be it not one who dwells with Wisdom.
    For she is fairer than the sun
    and surpasses every constellation of the stars.
    Compared to light, she takes precedence;
    for that, indeed, night supplants,
    but wickedness prevails not over Wisdom.

    Indeed, she reaches from end to end mightily
    and governs all things well.


    PS 119:89, 90, 91, 130, 135, 175

    R. (89a) Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Your word, O LORD, endures forever;
    it is firm as the heavens.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Through all generations your truth endures;
    you have established the earth, and it stands firm.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    According to your ordinances they still stand firm:
    all things serve you.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    The revelation of your words sheds light,
    giving understanding to the simple.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Let your countenance shine upon your servant,
    and teach me your statutes.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.
    Let my soul live to praise you,
    and may your ordinances help me.
    R. Your word is for ever, O Lord.


    Lk 17:20-25

    Asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come,
    Jesus said in reply,
    "The coming of the Kingdom of God cannot be observed,
    and no one will announce, 'Look, here it is,' or, 'There it is.'
    For behold, the Kingdom of God is among you."

    Then he said to his disciples,
    "The days will come when you will long to see
    one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.
    There will be those who will say to you,
    'Look, there he is,' or 'Look, here he is.'
    Do not go off, do not run in pursuit.
    For just as lightning flashes
    and lights up the sky from one side to the other,
    so will the Son of Man be in his day.
    But first he must suffer greatly and be rejected by this generation."
