    Ephesians 1:1-10

    1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints who are also faithful in Christ Jesus: 2Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. 5He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. 7In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace 8which he lavished upon us. 9For he has made known to us in all wisdom and insight the mystery of his will, according to his purpose which he set forth in Christ 10as a plan for the fulness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.


    Psalms 98:1-6

    1O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory. 2The LORD has made known his victory, he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations. 3He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God. 4Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;break forth into joyous song and sing praises! 5Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! 6With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!


    Luke 11:47-54

    47Woe to you! for you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. 48So you are witnesses and consent to the deeds of your fathers;for they killed them, and you build their tombs. 49Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, `I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,' 50that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation, 51from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechari'ah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it shall be required of this generation. 52Woe to you lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge;you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering." 53As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard, and to provoke him to speak of many things, 54lying in wait for him, to catch at something he might say.

    Gal 5:1-6

    Brothers and sisters:
    For freedom Christ set us free;
    so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.

    It is I, Paul, who am telling you
    that if you have yourselves circumcised,
    Christ will be of no benefit to you.
    Once again I declare to every man who has himself circumcised
    that he is bound to observe the entire law.
    You are separated from Christ,
    you who are trying to be justified by law;
    you have fallen from grace.
    For through the Spirit, by faith, we await the hope of righteousness.
    For in Christ Jesus,
    neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything,
    but only faith working through love.


    Ps 119:41, 43, 44, 45, 47, 48

    R. (41a) Let your mercy come to me, O Lord.
    Let your mercy come to me, O LORD,
    your salvation according to your promise.
    R. Let your mercy come to me, O Lord.
    Take not the word of truth from my mouth,
    for in your ordinances is my hope.
    R. Let your mercy come to me, O Lord.
    And I will keep your law continually,
    forever and ever.
    R. Let your mercy come to me, O Lord.
    And I will walk at liberty,
    because I seek your precepts.
    R. Let your mercy come to me, O Lord.
    And I will delight in your commands,
    which I love.
    R. Let your mercy come to me, O Lord.
    And I will lift up my hands to your commands
    and meditate on your statutes.
    R. Let your mercy come to me, O Lord.


    Lk 11:37-41

    After Jesus had spoken,
    a Pharisee invited him to dine at his home.
    He entered and reclined at table to eat.
    The Pharisee was amazed to see
    that he did not observe the prescribed washing before the meal.
    The Lord said to him, "Oh you Pharisees!
    Although you cleanse the outside of the cup and the dish,
    inside you are filled with plunder and evil.
    You fools!
    Did not the maker of the outside also make the inside?
    But as to what is within, give alms,
    and behold, everything will be clean for you."
