    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.


    Ordinary Time.


    Rom 2:1-11

    You, O man, are without excuse, every one of you who passes judgment.
    For by the standard by which you judge another you condemn yourself,
    since you, the judge, do the very same things.
    We know that the judgment of God on those who do such things is true.
    Do you suppose, then, you who judge those who engage in such things
    and yet do them yourself,
    that you will escape the judgment of God?
    Or do you hold his priceless kindness, forbearance, and patience
    in low esteem, unaware that the kindness of God
    would lead you to repentance?
    By your stubbornness and impenitent heart,
    you are storing up wrath for yourself
    for the day of wrath and revelation
    of the just judgment of God,
    who will repay everyone according to his works,
    eternal life to those who seek glory, honor, and immortality
    through perseverance in good works,
    but wrath and fury to those who selfishly disobey the truth
    and obey wickedness.
    Yes, affliction and distress will come upon everyone
    who does evil, Jew first and then Greek.
    But there will be glory, honor, and peace for everyone
    who does good, Jew first and then Greek.
    There is no partiality with God.


    PS 62:2-3, 6-7, 9

    R. (13b) Lord, you give back to everyone according to his works.
    Only in God is my soul at rest;
    from him comes my salvation.
    He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my stronghold;I shall not be disturbed at all.
    R. Lord, you give back to everyone according to his works.
    Only in God be at rest, my soul,
    for from him comes my hope.
    He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my stronghold;I shall not be disturbed.
    R. Lord, you give back to everyone according to his works.
    Trust in him at all times, O my people!
    Pour out your hearts before him;
    God is our refuge!
    R. Lord, you give back to everyone according to his works.

    Alleluia Jn 10:27

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
    I know them, and they follow me.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Lk 11:42-46

    The Lord said:
    "Woe to you Pharisees!
    You pay tithes of mint and of rue and of every garden herb,
    but you pay no attention to judgment and to love for God.
    These you should have done, without overlooking the others.
    Woe to you Pharisees!
    You love the seat of honor in synagogues
    and greetings in marketplaces.
    Woe to you!
    You are like unseen graves over which people unknowingly walk."

    Then one of the scholars of the law said to him in reply,
    "Teacher, by saying this you are insulting us too."
    And he said, "Woe also to you scholars of the law!
    You impose on people burdens hard to carry,
    but you yourselves do not lift one finger to touch them."
