    Ephesians 3:14-21

    14For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, 17and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God. 20Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.


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

    1Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. 2Praise the LORD with the lyre, make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! 4For the word of the LORD is upright;and all his work is done in faithfulness. 5He loves righteousness and justice;the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD. 11The counsel of the LORD stands for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! 18Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, 19that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine.


    Luke 12:49-53

    49"I came to cast fire upon the earth;and would that it were already kindled! 50I have a baptism to be baptized with;and how I am constrained until it is accomplished! 51Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division;52for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three;53they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

    Rom 8:1-11

    Brothers and sisters:
    Now there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
    For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus
    has freed you from the law of sin and death.
    For what the law, weakened by the flesh, was powerless to do,
    this God has done:
    by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh
    and for the sake of sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
    so that the righteous decree of the law might be fulfilled in us,
    who live not according to the flesh but according to the spirit.
    For those who live according to the flesh
    are concerned with the things of the flesh,
    but those who live according to the spirit
    with the things of the spirit.
    The concern of the flesh is death,
    but the concern of the spirit is life and peace.
    For the concern of the flesh is hostility toward God;
    it does not submit to the law of God, nor can it;
    and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
    But you are not in the flesh;
    on the contrary, you are in the spirit,
    if only the Spirit of God dwells in you.
    Whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
    But if Christ is in you,
    although the body is dead because of sin,
    the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
    If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you,
    the one who raised Christ from the dead
    will give life to your mortal bodies also,
    through his Spirit that dwells in you.


    PS 24:1b-2, 3-4ab, 5-6

    R. (see 6) Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
    The LORD’s are the earth and its fullness;
    the world and those who dwell in it.
    For he founded it upon the seas
    and established it upon the rivers.
    R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
    Who can ascend the mountain of the LORD?
    or who may stand in his holy place?
    He whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,
    who desires not what is vain.
    R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
    He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,
    a reward from God his savior.
    Such is the race that seeks for him,
    that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
    R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.


    Lk 13:1-9

    Some people told Jesus about the Galileans
    whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices.
    He said to them in reply,
    "Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way
    they were greater sinners than all other Galileans?
    By no means!
    But I tell you, if you do not repent,
    you will all perish as they did!
    Or those eighteen people who were killed
    when the tower at Siloam fell on them?
    do you think they were more guilty
    than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem?
    By no means!
    But I tell you, if you do not repent,
    you will all perish as they did!"

    And he told them this parable:
    "There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard,
    and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none,
    he said to the gardener,
    'For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree
    but have found none.
    So cut it down.
    Why should it exhaust the soil?'
    He said to him in reply,
    'Sir, leave it for this year also,
    and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it;
    it may bear fruit in the future.
    If not you can cut it down.'"
