    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 3:14-21

    Brothers and sisters:
    I kneel before the Father,
    from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
    that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory
    to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self,
    and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
    that you, rooted and grounded in love,
    may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones
    what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
    and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge,
    so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

    Now to him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine,
    by the power at work within us,
    to him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus
    to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.


    Ps 33:1-2, 4-5, 11-12, 18-19

    R. (5b) The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
    Exult, you just, in the LORD;
    praise from the upright is fitting.
    Give thanks to the LORD on the harp;
    with the ten stringed lyre chant his praises.
    R. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
    For upright is the word of the LORD,
    and all his works are trustworthy.
    He loves justice and right;
    of the kindness of the LORD the earth is full.
    R. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
    But the plan of the LORD stands forever;
    the design of his heart, through all generations.
    Blessed the nation whose God is the LORD,
    the people he has chosen for his own inheritance.
    R. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
    But see, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him,
    upon those who hope for his kindness,
    To deliver them from death
    and preserve them in spite of famine.
    R. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.


    Lk 12:49-53

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "I have come to set the earth on fire,
    and how I wish it were already blazing!
    There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
    and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
    Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?
    No, I tell you, but rather division.
    From now on a household of five will be divided,
    three against two and two against three;
    a father will be divided against his son
    and a son against his father,
    a mother against her daughter
    and a daughter against her mother,
    a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
    and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."
