    Ephesians 3:2-12

    2assuming that you have heard of the stewardship of God's grace that was given to me for you, 3how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly. 4When you read this you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;6that is, how the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 7Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God's grace which was given me by the working of his power. 8To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9and to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things;10that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. 11This was according to the eternal purpose which he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have boldness and confidence of access through our faith in him.


    Isaiah 12:2-6

    2"Behold, God is my salvation;I will trust, and will not be afraid;for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation." 3With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. 4And you will say in that day: "Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name;make known his deeds among the nations, proclaim that his name is exalted. 5"Sing praises to the LORD, for he has done gloriously;let this be known in all the earth. 6Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel."


    Luke 12:39-48

    39But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40You also must be ready;for the Son of man is coming at an unexpected hour." 41Peter said, "Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?" 42And the Lord said, "Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? 43Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 44Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 45But if that servant says to himself, `My master is delayed in coming,' and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish him, and put him with the unfaithful. 47And that servant who knew his master's will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating. 48But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required;and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.


    Ordinary Time.


    Eph 2:1-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    You were dead in your transgressions and sins
    in which you once lived following the age of this world,
    following the ruler of the power of the air,
    the spirit that is now at work in the disobedient.
    All of us once lived among them in the desires of our flesh,
    following the wishes of the flesh and the impulses,
    and we were by nature children of wrath, like the rest.
    But God, who is rich in mercy,
    because of the great love he had for us,
    even when we were dead in our transgressions,
    brought us to life with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
    raised us up with him,
    and seated us with him in the heavens in Christ Jesus,
    that in the ages to come
    he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace
    in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
    For by grace you have been saved through faith,
    and this is not from you;it is the gift of God;
    it is not from works, so no one may boast.
    For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for good works
    that God has prepared in advance,
    that we should live in them.


    Ps 100:1b-2, 3, 4ab, 4c-5

    R. (3b) The Lord made us, we belong to him.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD all you lands;
    serve the LORD with gladness;
    come before him with joyful song.
    R. The Lord made us, we belong to him.
    Know that the LORD is God;
    he made us, his we are;
    his people, the flock he tends.
    R. The Lord made us, we belong to him.
    Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
    his courts with praise.
    R. The Lord made us, we belong to him.
    Give thanks to him;bless his name, for he is good:
    the LORD, whose kindness endures forever,
    and his faithfulness, to all generations.
    R. The Lord made us, we belong to him.


    Lk 12:13-21

    Someone in the crowd said to Jesus,
    "Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me."
    He replied to him,
    "Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator?"
    Then he said to the crowd,
    "Take care to guard against all greed,
    for though one may be rich,
    one's life does not consist of possessions."

    Then he told them a parable.
    "There was a rich man whose land produced a bountiful harvest.
    He asked himself, 'What shall I do,
    for I do not have space to store my harvest?'
    And he said, 'This is what I shall do:
    I shall tear down my barns and build larger ones.
    There I shall store all my grain and other goods
    and I shall say to myself, 'Now as for you,
    you have so many good things stored up for many years,
    rest, eat, drink, be merry!'"
    But God said to him,
    'You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you;
    and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?'
    Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself
    but is not rich in what matters to God."
