    Acts 28:11-16, 30-31

    11After three months we set sail in a ship which had wintered in the island, a ship of Alexandria, with the Twin Brothers as figurehead. 12Putting in at Syracuse, we stayed there for three days. 13And from there we made a circuit and arrived at Rhe'gium;and after one day a south wind sprang up, and on the second day we came to Pute'oli. 14There we found brethren, and were invited to stay with them for seven days. And so we came to Rome. 15And the brethren there, when they heard of us, came as far as the Forum of Ap'pius and Three Taverns to meet us. On seeing them Paul thanked God and took courage. 16And when we came into Rome, Paul was allowed to stay by himself, with the soldier that guarded him. 30And he lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, 31preaching the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ quite openly and unhindered.


    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!


    Matthew 14:22-33

    22Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24but the boat by this time was many furlongs distant from the land, beaten by the waves;for the wind was against them. 25And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. 26But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear. 27But immediately he spoke to them, saying, "Take heart, it is I;have no fear." 28And Peter answered him, "Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water." 29He said, "Come." So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus;30but when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me." 31Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, "O man of little faith, why did you doubt?" 32And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."

    Rv 3:1-6, 14-22

    I, John, heard the Lord saying to me:
    "To the angel of the Church in Sardis, write this:

    "'The one who has the seven spirits of God
    and the seven stars says this: "I know your works,
    that you have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead.
    Be watchful and strengthen what is left, which is going to die,
    for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God.
    Remember then how you accepted and heard;keep it, and repent.
    If you are not watchful, I will come like a thief,
    and you will never know at what hour I will come upon you.
    However, you have a few people in Sardis
    who have not soiled their garments;
    they will walk with me dressed in white,
    because they are worthy.

    "'The victor will thus be dressed in white,
    and I will never erase his name from the book of life
    but will acknowledge his name in the presence of my Father
    and of his angels.

    "'Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'"

    "To the angel of the Church in Laodicea, write this:

    "'The Amen, the faithful and true witness,
    the source of God's creation, says this:
    "I know your works;
    I know that you are neither cold nor hot.
    I wish you were either cold or hot.
    So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold,
    I will spit you out of my mouth.
    For you say, 'I am rich and affluent and have no need of anything,'
    and yet do not realize that you are wretched,
    pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.
    I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich,
    and white garments to put on
    so that your shameful nakedness may not be exposed,
    and buy ointment to smear on your eyes so that you may see.
    Those whom I love, I reprove and chastise.
    Be earnest, therefore, and repent.

    "'Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
    If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,
    then I will enter his house and dine with him,
    and he with me.
    I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne,
    as I myself first won the victory
    and sit with my Father on his throne.

    "'Whoever has ears ought to hear
    what the Spirit says to the churches.'"


    Ps 15:2-3a, 3bc-4ab, 5

    R. (Rev. 3: 21) I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.
    He who walks blamelessly and does justice;
    who thinks the truth in his heart
    and slanders not with his tongue.
    R. I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.
    Who harms not his fellow man,
    nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
    By whom the reprobate is despised,
    while he honors those who fear the LORD.
    R. I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.
    Who lends not his money at usury
    and accepts no bribe against the innocent.
    He who does these things
    shall never be disturbed.
    R. I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.


    Lk 19:1-10

    At that time Jesus came to Jericho and intended to pass through the town.
    Now a man there named Zacchaeus,
    who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man,
    was seeking to see who Jesus was;
    but he could not see him because of the crowd,
    for he was short in stature.
    So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus,
    who was about to pass that way.
    When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and said,
    "Zacchaeus, come down quickly,
    for today I must stay at your house."
    And he came down quickly and received him with joy.
    When they saw this, they began to grumble, saying,
    "He has gone to stay at the house of a sinner."
    But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord,
    "Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor,
    and if I have extorted anything from anyone
    I shall repay it four times over."
    And Jesus said to him,
    "Today salvation has come to this house
    because this man too is a descendant of Abraham.
    For the Son of Man has come to seek
    and to save what was lost."
