    Eph 3:2-12

    Brothers and sisters:
    You have heard of the stewardship of God's grace
    that was given to me for your benefit,
    namely, that the mystery was made known to me by revelation,
    as I have written briefly earlier.
    When you read this
    you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ,
    which was not made known to human beings in other generations
    as it has now been revealed
    to his holy Apostles and prophets by the Spirit,
    that the Gentiles are coheirs, members of the same Body,
    and copartners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the Gospel.

    Of this I became a minister by the gift of God's grace
    that was granted me in accord with the exercise of his power.
    To me, the very least of all the holy ones, this grace was given,
    to preach to the Gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ,
    and to bring to light for all what is the plan of the mystery
    hidden from ages past in God who created all things,
    so that the manifold wisdom of God
    might now be made known through the Church
    to the principalities and authorities in the heavens.
    This was according to the eternal purpose
    that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord,
    in whom we have boldness of speech
    and confidence of access through faith in him.


    Is 12:2-3, 4bcd, 5-6

    R. (see 3) You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.
    God indeed is my savior;
    I am confident and unafraid.
    My strength and my courage is the LORD,
    and he has been my savior.
    With joy you will draw water
    at the fountain of salvation.
    R. You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.
    Give thanks to the LORD, acclaim his name;
    among the nations make known his deeds,
    proclaim how exalted is his name.
    R. You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.
    Sing praise to the LORD for his glorious achievement;
    let this be known throughout all the earth.
    Shout with exultation, O city of Zion,
    for great in your midst
    is the Holy One of Israel!
    R. You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.


    Lk 12:39-48

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Be sure of this:
    if the master of the house had known the hour
    when the thief was coming,
    he would not have let his house be broken into.
    You also must be prepared,
    for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come."

    Then Peter said,
    "Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?"
    And the Lord replied,
    "Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward
    whom the master will put in charge of his servants
    to distribute the food allowance at the proper time?
    Blessed is that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so.
    Truly, I say to you, he will put him
    in charge of all his property.
    But if that servant says to himself,
    'My master is delayed in coming,'
    and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants,
    to eat and drink and get drunk,
    then that servant's master will come
    on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour
    and will punish the servant severely
    and assign him a place with the unfaithful.
    That servant who knew his master's will
    but did not make preparations nor act in accord with his will
    shall be beaten severely;
    and the servant who was ignorant of his master's will
    but acted in a way deserving of a severe beating
    shall be beaten only lightly.
    Much will be required of the person entrusted with much,
    and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more."
