  • St. Luke, Evangelist 2020:


    2 Tm 4:10-17b

    Demas, enamored of the present world,
    deserted me and went to Thessalonica,
    Crescens to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia.
    Luke is the only one with me.
    Get Mark and bring him with you,
    for he is helpful to me in the ministry.
    I have sent Tychicus to Ephesus.
    When you come, bring the cloak I left with Carpus in Troas,
    the papyrus rolls, and especially the parchments.

    Alexander the coppersmith did me a great deal of harm;
    the Lord will repay him according to his deeds.
    You too be on guard against him,
    for he has strongly resisted our preaching.

    At my first defense no one appeared on my behalf,
    but everyone deserted me.
    May it not be held against them!
    But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength,
    so that through me the proclamation might be completed
    and all the Gentiles might hear it.


    Ps 145:10-11, 12-13, 17-18

    R. (12) Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Making known to men your might
    and the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Your Kingdom is a Kingdom for all ages,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    The LORD is just in all his ways
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
    to all who call upon him in truth.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.


    Lk 10:1-9

    The Lord Jesus appointed seventy-two disciples
    whom he sent ahead of him in pairs
    to every town and place he intended to visit.
    He said to them,
    "The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
    so ask the master of the harvest
    to send out laborers for his harvest.
    Go on your way;
    behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves.
    Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals;
    and greet no one along the way.
    Into whatever house you enter,
    first say, 'Peace to this household.'
    If a peaceful person lives there,
    your peace will rest on him;
    but if not, it will return to you.
    Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you,
    for the laborer deserves payment.
    Do not move about from one house to another.
    Whatever town you enter and they welcome you,
    eat what is set before you,
    cure the sick in it and say to them,
    'The Kingdom of God is at hand for you.'"


    Ordinary Time.


    is 45:1, 4-6

    Thus says the LORD to his anointed, Cyrus,
    whose right hand I grasp,
    subduing nations before him,
    and making kings run in his service,
    opening doors before him
    and leaving the gates unbarred:
    For the sake of Jacob, my servant,
    of Israel, my chosen one,
    I have called you by your name,
    giving you a title, though you knew me not.
    I am the LORD and there is no other,
    there is no God besides me.
    It is I who arm you, though you know me not,
    so that toward the rising and the setting of the sun
    people may know that there is none besides me.
    I am the LORD, there is no other.


    ps 96:1, 3, 4-5, 7-8, 9-10

    R/ (7b)
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    Sing to the LORD a new song;
    sing to the LORD, all you lands.
    Tell his glory among the nations;
    among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    For great is the LORD and highly to be praised;
    awesome is he, beyond all gods.
    For all the gods of the nations are things of nought,
    but the LORD made the heavens.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    Give to the LORD, you families of nations,
    give to the LORD glory and praise;
    give to the LORD the glory due his name!
    Bring gifts, and enter his courts.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.
    Worship the LORD, in holy attire;
    tremble before him, all the earth;
    say among the nations: The LORD is king,
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    Give the Lord glory and honor.


    1 thes 1:1-5b

    Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians
    in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
    grace to you and peace.
    We give thanks to God always for all of you,
    remembering you in our prayers,
    unceasingly calling to mind your work of faith and labor of love
    and endurance in hope of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    before our God and Father,
    knowing, brothers and sisters loved by God,
    how you were chosen.
    For our gospel did not come to you in word alone,
    but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with much conviction.


    mt 22:15-21

    The Pharisees went off
    and plotted how they might entrap Jesus in speech.
    They sent their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying,
    "Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man
    and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
    And you are not concerned with anyone's opinion,
    for you do not regard a person's status.
    Tell us, then, what is your opinion:
    Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?"
    Knowing their malice, Jesus said,
    "Why are you testing me, you hypocrites?
    Show me the coin that pays the census tax."
    Then they handed him the Roman coin.
    He said to them, "Whose image is this and whose inscription?"
    They replied, "Caesar's."
    At that he said to them,
    "Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar
    and to God what belongs to God."
