    Ephesians 1:11-14

    11In him, according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will, 12we who first hoped in Christ have been destined and appointed to live for the praise of his glory. 13In him you also, who have heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and have believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14which is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.


    Psalms 33:1-2, 4-5, 12-13

    1Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. 2Praise the LORD with the lyre, make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! 4For the word of the LORD is upright;and all his work is done in faithfulness. 5He loves righteousness and justice;the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD. 12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! 13The LORD looks down from heaven, he sees all the sons of men;


    Luke 12:1-7

    1In the meantime, when so many thousands of the multitude had gathered together that they trod upon one another, he began to say to his disciples first, "Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 3Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. 4"I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell;yes, I tell you, fear him! 6Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not;you are of more value than many sparrows.


    Ordinary Time.


    Gal 5:18-25

    Brothers and sisters:
    If you are guided by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
    Now the works of the flesh are obvious:
    immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry,
    sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy,
    outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness,
    dissensions, factions, occasions of envy,
    drinking bouts, orgies, and the like.
    I warn you, as I warned you before,
    that those who do such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
    In contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
    patience, kindness, generosity,
    faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
    Against such there is no law.
    Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their flesh
    with its passions and desires.
    If we live in the Spirit, let us also follow the Spirit.


    Ps 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6

    R. (see Jn 8:12) Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.
    Blessed the man who follows not
    the counsel of the wicked
    Nor walks in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the company of the insolent,
    But delights in the law of the LORD
    and meditates on his law day and night.
    R. Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.
    He is like a tree
    planted near running water,
    That yields its fruit in due season,
    and whose leaves never fade.
    Whatever he does, prospers.
    R. Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.
    Not so the wicked, not so;
    they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
    For the LORD watches over the way of the just,
    but the way of the wicked vanishes.
    R. Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.


    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."
