    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."


    Ordinary Time.


    Dn 12:1-3

    In those days, I Daniel,
    heard this word of the Lord:
    "At that time there shall arise
    Michael, the great prince,
    guardian of your people;
    it shall be a time unsurpassed in distress
    since nations began until that time.
    At that time your people shall escape,
    everyone who is found written in the book.
    "Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake;
    some shall live forever,
    others shall be an everlasting horror and disgrace.
    "But the wise shall shine brightly
    like the splendor of the firmament,
    and those who lead the many to justice
    shall be like the stars forever."


    Ps 16:5, 8, 9-10, 11

    R. (1)
    You are my inheritance, O Lord!
    O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
    you it is who hold fast my lot.
    I set the LORD ever before me;
    with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
    R.You are my inheritance, O Lord!
    Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
    my body, too, abides in confidence;
    because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
    nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.
    R.You are my inheritance, O Lord!
    You will show me the path to life,
    fullness of joys in your presence,
    the delights at your right hand forever.
    R.You are my inheritance, O Lord!


    Heb 10:11-14, 18

    Brothers and sisters:
    Every priest stands daily at his ministry,
    offering frequently those same sacrifices
    that can never take away sins.
    But this one offered one sacrifice for sins,
    and took his seat forever at the right hand of God;
    now he waits until his enemies are made his footstool.
    For by one offering
    he has made perfect forever those who are being consecrated.
    Where there is forgiveness of these,
    there is no longer offering for sin.


    Mk 13:24-32

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "In those days after that tribulation
    the sun will be darkened,
    and the moon will not give its light,
    and the stars will be falling from the sky,
    and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
    "And then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in the clouds'
    with great power and glory,
    and then he will send out the angels
    and gather his elect from the four winds,
    from the end of the earth to the end of the sky.
    "Learn a lesson from the fig tree.
    When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves,
    you know that summer is near.
    In the same way, when you see these things happening,
    know that he is near, at the gates.
    Amen, I say to you,
    this generation will not pass away
    until all these things have taken place.
    Heaven and earth will pass away,
    but my words will not pass away.
    "But of that day or hour, no one knows,
    neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
