    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.


    Rom 3:21-30

    Brothers and sisters:
    Now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law,
    though testified to by the law and the prophets,
    the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ
    for all who believe.
    For there is no distinction;
    all have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God.
    They are justified freely by his grace
    through the redemption in Christ Jesus,
    whom God set forth as an expiation,
    through faith, by his Blood, to prove his righteousness
    because of the forgiveness of sins previously committed,
    through the forbearance of God–
    to prove his righteousness in the present time,
    that he might be righteous
    and justify the one who has faith in Jesus.

    What occasion is there then for boasting? It is ruled out.
    On what principle, that of works?
    No, rather on the principle of faith.
    For we consider that a person is justified by faith
    apart from works of the law.
    Does God belong to Jews alone?
    Does he not belong to Gentiles, too?
    Yes, also to Gentiles, for God is one
    and will justify the circumcised on the basis of faith
    and the uncircumcised through faith.


    PS 130:1b-2, 3-4, 5-6ab

    R. (7) With the Lord there is mercy, and fullness of redemption.
    Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD;
    LORD, hear my voice!
    Let your ears be attentive
    to my voice in supplication.
    R. With the Lord there is mercy, and fullness of redemption.
    If you, O LORD, mark iniquities,
    Lord, who can stand?
    But with you is forgiveness,
    that you may be revered.
    R. With the Lord there is mercy, and fullness of redemption.
    I trust in the LORD;
    my soul trusts in his word.
    My soul waits for the LORD
    more than sentinels wait for the dawn.
    R. With the Lord there is mercy, and fullness of redemption.

    Alleluia Jn 14:6

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord;
    no one comes to the Father except through me.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    lk 11:47-54

    The Lord said:
    “Woe to you who build the memorials of the prophets
    whom your fathers killed.
    Consequently, you bear witness and give consent
    to the deeds of your ancestors,
    for they killed them and you do the building.
    Therefore, the wisdom of God said,
    ‘I will send to them prophets and Apostles;
    some of them they will kill and persecute’
    in order that this generation might be charged
    with the blood of all the prophets
    shed since the foundation of the world,
    from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah
    who died between the altar and the temple building.
    Yes, I tell you, this generation will be charged with their blood!
    Woe to you, scholars of the law!
    You have taken away the key of knowledge.
    You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter.”
    When Jesus left, the scribes and Pharisees
    began to act with hostility toward him
    and to interrogate him about many things,
    for they were plotting to catch him at something he might say.
