    Titus 1, 1-5

    1Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to further the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth which accords with godliness, 2in hope of eternal life which God, who never lies, promised ages ago 3and at the proper time manifested in his word through the preaching with which I have been entrusted by command of God our Savior;4To Titus, my true child in a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior. 5This is why I left you in Crete, that you might amend what was defective, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you,


    Psalms 96:1-3, 7-8, 10

    1O sing to the LORD a new song;sing to the LORD, all the earth! 2Sing to the LORD, bless his name;tell of his salvation from day to day. 3Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples! 7Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! 8Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;bring an offering, and come into his courts! 10Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns! Yea, the world is established, it shall never be moved;he will judge the peoples with equity."


    Luke 10, 1-9

    1After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way;behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals;and salute no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!' 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him;but if not, it shall return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages;do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you;9heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.'

    2 sm 11:1-4a, 5-10a, 13-17

    At the turn of the year, when kings go out on campaign,
    David sent out Joab along with his officers
    and the army of Israel,
    and they ravaged the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah.
    David, however, remained in Jerusalem.
    One evening David rose from his siesta
    and strolled about on the roof of the palace.
    From the roof he saw a woman bathing, who was very beautiful.
    David had inquiries made about the woman and was told,
    “She is Bathsheba, daughter of Eliam,
    and wife of Joab’s armor bearer Uriah the Hittite.”
    Then David sent messengers and took her.
    When she came to him, he had relations with her.
    She then returned to her house.
    But the woman had conceived,
    and sent the information to David, “I am with child.”

    David therefore sent a message to Joab,
    “Send me Uriah the Hittite.”
    So Joab sent Uriah to David.
    When he came, David questioned him about Joab, the soldiers,
    and how the war was going, and Uriah answered that all was well.
    David then said to Uriah, “Go down to your house and bathe your feet.”
    Uriah left the palace,
    and a portion was sent out after him from the king’s table.
    But Uriah slept at the entrance of the royal palace
    with the other officers of his lord, and did not go down
    to his own house.
    David was told that Uriah had not gone home.
    On the day following, David summoned him,
    and he ate and drank with David, who made him drunk.
    But in the evening Uriah went out to sleep on his bed
    among his lord’s servants, and did not go down to his home.
    The next morning David wrote a letter to Joab
    which he sent by Uriah.
    In it he directed:
    “Place Uriah up front, where the fighting is fierce.
    Then pull back and leave him to be struck down dead.”
    So while Joab was besieging the city, he assigned Uriah
    to a place where he knew the defenders were strong.
    When the men of the city made a sortie against Joab,
    some officers of David’s army fell,
    and among them Uriah the Hittite died.


    ps 51:3-4, 5-6a, 6bcd-7, 10-11

    R. (see 3a) Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
    in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
    Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
    and of my sin cleanse me.
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    For I acknowledge my offense,
    and my sin is before me always:
    “Against you only have I sinned,
    and done what is evil in your sight.”
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    I have done such evil in your sight
    that you are just in your sentence,
    blameless when you condemn.
    True, I was born guilty,
    a sinner, even as my mother conceived me.
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    Let me hear the sounds of joy and gladness;
    the bones you have crushed shall rejoice.
    Turn away your face from my sins,
    and blot out all my guilt.
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.


    mk 4:26-34

    Jesus said to the crowds:
    “This is how it is with the Kingdom of God;
    it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
    and would sleep and rise night and day
    and the seed would sprout and grow,
    he knows not how.
    Of its own accord the land yields fruit,
    first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
    And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once,
    for the harvest has come.”

    He said,
    “To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God,
    or what parable can we use for it?
    It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,
    is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
    But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants
    and puts forth large branches,
    so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.”
    With many such parables
    he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it.
    Without parables he did not speak to them,
    but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.
