    Nm 21:4b-9

    With their patience worn out by the journey,
    the people complained against God and Moses,
    "Why have you brought us up from Egypt to die in this desert,
    where there is no food or water?
    We are disgusted with this wretched food!"

    In punishment the LORD sent among the people saraph serpents,
    which bit the people so that many of them died.
    Then the people came to Moses and said,
    "We have sinned in complaining against the LORD and you.
    Pray the LORD to take the serpents from us."
    So Moses prayed for the people, and the LORD said to Moses,
    "Make a saraph and mount it on a pole,
    and if any who have been bitten look at it, they will live."
    Moses accordingly made a bronze serpent and mounted it on a pole,
    and whenever anyone who had been bitten by a serpent
    looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.


    Ps 78:1bc-2, 34-35, 36-37, 38

    R. (see 7b) Do not forget the works of the Lord!
    Hearken, my people, to my teaching;
    incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
    I will open my mouth in a parable,
    I will utter mysteries from of old.
    R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!
    While he slew them they sought him
    and inquired after God again,
    Remembering that God was their rock
    and the Most High God, their redeemer.
    R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!
    But they flattered him with their mouths
    and lied to him with their tongues,
    Though their hearts were not steadfast toward him,
    nor were they faithful to his covenant.
    R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!
    But he, being merciful, forgave their sin
    and destroyed them not;
    Often he turned back his anger
    and let none of his wrath be roused.
    R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!


    Phil 2:6-11

    Brothers and sisters:
    Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God,
    did not regard equality with God something to be grasped.
    Rather, he emptied himself,
    taking the form of a slave,
    coming in human likeness;
    and found human in appearance,
    he humbled himself,
    becoming obedient to death,
    even death on a cross.
    Because of this, God greatly exalted him
    and bestowed on him the name
    that is above every name,
    that at the name of Jesus
    every knee should bend,
    of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    and every tongue confess that
    Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.


    Jn 3:13-17

    Jesus said to Nicodemus:
    "No one has gone up to heaven
    except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man.
    And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
    so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
    so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life."

    For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
    so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
    but might have eternal life.
    For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
    but that the world might be saved through him.


    Ordinary Time.


    1 Tm 1:15-17

    This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance:
    Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
    Of these I am the foremost.
    But for that reason I was mercifully treated,
    so that in me, as the foremost,
    Christ Jesus might display all his patience as an example
    for those who would come to believe in him for everlasting life.
    To the king of ages, incorruptible, invisible, the only God,
    honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.


    PS 113:1b-2, 3-4, 5 and 6-7

    R. (2) Blessed be the name of the Lord for ever.
    Praise, you servants of the LORD,
    praise the name of the LORD.
    Blessed be the name of the LORD
    both now and forever.
    R. Blessed be the name of the Lord for ever.
    From the rising to the setting of the sun
    is the name of the LORD to be praised.
    High above all nations is the LORD;
    above the heavens is his glory.
    R. Blessed be the name of the Lord for ever.
    Who is like the LORD, our God,
    and looks upon the heavens and the earth below?
    He raises up the lowly from the dust;
    from the dunghill he lifts up the poor.
    R. Blessed be the name of the Lord for ever.

    Alleluia Jn 14:23

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Whover loves me will keep my word,
    and my Father will love him,
    and we will come to him.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    lk 6:43-49

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “A good tree does not bear rotten fruit,
    nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit.
    For every tree is known by its own fruit.
    For people do not pick figs from thornbushes,
    nor do they gather grapes from brambles.
    A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good,
    but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil;
    for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.

    “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but not do what I command?
    I will show you what someone is like who comes to me,
    listens to my words, and acts on them.
    That one is like a man building a house,
    who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock;
    when the flood came, the river burst against that house
    but could not shake it because it had been well built.
    But the one who listens and does not act
    is like a person who built a house on the ground
    without a foundation.
    When the river burst against it,
    it collapsed at once and was completely destroyed.”
