    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.

    Ex 17:8-13

    In those days, Amalek came and waged war against Israel.
    Moses, therefore, said to Joshua,
    "Pick out certain men,
    and tomorrow go out and engage Amalek in battle.
    I will be standing on top of the hill
    with the staff of God in my hand."
    So Joshua did as Moses told him:
    he engaged Amalek in battle
    after Moses had climbed to the top of the hill with Aaron and Hur.
    As long as Moses kept his hands raised up,
    Israel had the better of the fight,
    but when he let his hands rest,
    Amalek had the better of the fight.
    Moses’hands, however, grew tired;
    so they put a rock in place for him to sit on.
    Meanwhile Aaron and Hur supported his hands,
    one on one side and one on the other,
    so that his hands remained steady till sunset.
    And Joshua mowed down Amalek and his people
    with the edge of the sword.


    Ps 121:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8

    R. (cf. 2)
    Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
    I lift up my eyes toward the mountains;
    whence shall help come to me?
    My help is from the LORD,
    who made heaven and earth.
    R.Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
    May he not suffer your foot to slip;
    may he slumber not who guards you:
    indeed he neither slumbers nor sleeps,
    the guardian of Israel.
    R.Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
    The LORD is your guardian;the LORD is your shade;
    he is beside you at your right hand.
    The sun shall not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
    R.Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
    The LORD will guard you from all evil;
    he will guard your life.
    The LORD will guard your coming and your going,
    both now and forever.
    R.Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.


    2 Tm 3:14-4:2

    Remain faithful to what you have learned and believed,
    because you know from whom you learned it,
    and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures,
    which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation
    through faith in Christ Jesus.
    All Scripture is inspired by God
    and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction,
    and for training in righteousness,
    so that one who belongs to God may be competent,
    equipped for every good work.
    I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus,
    who will judge the living and the dead,
    and by his appearing and his kingly power:
    proclaim the word;
    be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient;
    convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching.


    Lk 18:1-8

    Jesus told his disciples a parable
    about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
    He said, "There was a judge in a certain town
    who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
    And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
    'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.'
    For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
    'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
    because this widow keeps bothering me
    I shall deliver a just decision for her
    lest she finally come and strike me.'"
    The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
    Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
    who call out to him day and night?
    Will he be slow to answer them?
    I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
    But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"
