    Hosea 2:16-17, 21-22

    16"And in that day, says the LORD, you will call me, `My husband,' and no longer will you call me, `My Ba'al.' 17For I will remove the names of the Ba'als from her mouth, and they shall be mentioned by name no more. 21"And in that day, says the LORD, I will answer the heavens and they shall answer the earth;22and the earth shall answer the grain, the wine, and the oil, and they shall answer Jezreel;


    Psalms 45:11-12, 14-17

    10Hear, O daughter, consider, and incline your ear;forget your people and your father's house;11and the king will desire your beauty. Since he is your lord, bow to him;13with all kinds of wealth. The princess is decked in her chamber with gold-woven robes;14in many-colored robes she is led to the king, with her virgin companions, her escort, in her train. 15With joy and gladness they are led along as they enter the palace of the king. 16Instead of your fathers shall be your sons;you will make them princes in all the earth.


    Matthew 25:1-13

    1"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them;4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 7Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you;go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.' 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast;and the door was shut. 11Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.' 12But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.' 13Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

    1 Mc 4:36-37, 52-59

    Judas and his brothers said,
    “Now that our enemies have been crushed,
    let us go up to purify the sanctuary and rededicate it.”
    So the whole army assembled, and went up to Mount Zion.

    Early in the morning on the twenty-fifth day of the ninth month,
    that is, the month of Chislev,
    in the year one hundred and forty-eight,
    they arose and offered sacrifice according to the law
    on the new altar of burnt offerings that they had made.
    On the anniversary of the day on which the Gentiles had defiled it,
    on that very day it was reconsecrated
    with songs, harps, flutes, and cymbals.
    All the people prostrated themselves and adored and praised Heaven,
    who had given them success.

    For eight days they celebrated the dedication of the altar
    and joyfully offered burnt offerings and sacrifices
    of deliverance and praise.
    They ornamented the facade of the temple with gold crowns and shields;
    they repaired the gates and the priests’ chambers
    and furnished them with doors.
    There was great joy among the people
    now that the disgrace of the Gentiles was removed.
    Then Judas and his brothers and the entire congregation of Israel
    decreed that the days of the dedication of the altar
    should be observed with joy and gladness
    on the anniversary every year for eight days,
    from the twenty-fifth day of the month Chislev.


    1 Chr 29:10bcd, 11abc, 11d-12a, 12bcd

    R. (13b) We praise your glorious name, O mighty God.
    “Blessed may you be, O LORD,
    God of Israel our father,
    from eternity to eternity.”
    R. We praise your glorious name, O mighty God.
    “Yours, O LORD, are grandeur and power,
    majesty, splendor, and glory.
    For all in heaven and on earth is yours.”
    R. We praise your glorious name, O mighty God.
    “Yours, O LORD, is the sovereignty;
    you are exalted as head over all.
    Riches and honor are from you.”
    R. We praise your glorious name, O mighty God.
    “You have dominion over all,
    In your hand are power and might;
    it is yours to give grandeur and strength to all.”
    R. We praise your glorious name, O mighty God.


    Lk 19:45-48

    Jesus entered the temple area and proceeded to drive out
    those who were selling things, saying to them,
    "It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer,
    but you have made it a den of thieves.
    And every day he was teaching in the temple area.
    The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people, meanwhile,
    were seeking to put him to death,
    but they could find no way to accomplish their purpose
    because all the people were hanging on his words.
