    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.


    Rom 7:18-25a

    Brothers and sisters:
    I know that good does not dwell in me, that is, in my flesh.
    The willing is ready at hand, but doing the good is not.
    For I do not do the good I want,
    but I do the evil I do not want.
    Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it,
    but sin that dwells in me.
    So, then, I discover the principle
    that when I want to do right, evil is at hand.
    For I take delight in the law of God, in my inner self,
    but I see in my members another principle
    at war with the law of my mind,
    taking me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
    Miserable one that I am!
    Who will deliver me from this mortal body?
    Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord.


    PS 119:66, 68, 76, 77, 93, 94

    R. (68b) Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Teach me wisdom and knowledge,
    for in your commands I trust.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    You are good and bountiful;
    teach me your statutes.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Let your kindness comfort me
    according to your promise to your servants.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Let your compassion come to me that I may live,
    for your law is my delight.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Never will I forget your precepts,
    for through them you give me life.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    I am yours;save me,
    for I have sought your precepts.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.


    Lk 12:54-59

    Jesus said to the crowds,
    "When you see a cloud rising in the west
    you say immediately that it is going to rain--and so it does;
    and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south
    you say that it is going to be hot--and so it is.
    You hypocrites!
    You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky;
    why do you not know how to interpret the present time?

    "Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?
    If you are to go with your opponent before a magistrate,
    make an effort to settle the matter on the way;
    otherwise your opponent will turn you over to the judge,
    and the judge hand you over to the constable,
    and the constable throw you into prison.
    I say to you, you will not be released
    until you have paid the last penny."
