    Acts 26:19-23

    19"Wherefore, O King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision, 20but declared first to those at Damascus, then at Jerusalem and throughout all the country of Judea, and also to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God and perform deeds worthy of their repentance. 21For this reason the Jews seized me in the temple and tried to kill me. 22To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass: 23that the Christ must suffer, and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to the people and to the Gentiles."


    Psalms 117:1-2

    1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us;and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!


    John 10:11-16

    11I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees;and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep. 14I am the good shepherd;I know my own and my own know me, 15as the Father knows me and I know the Father;and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold;I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.


    Ordinary Time.


    Tb 1:3;2:1a-8

    I, Tobit, have walked all the days of my life
    on the paths of truth and righteousness.
    I performed many charitable works for my kinsmen and my people
    who had been deported with me to Nineveh, in Assyria.

    On our festival of Pentecost, the feast of Weeks,
    a fine dinner was prepared for me, and I reclined to eat.
    The table was set for me,
    and when many different dishes were placed before me,
    I said to my son Tobiah: “My son,
    go out and try to find a poor man
    from among our kinsmen exiled here in Nineveh.
    If he is a sincere worshiper of God, bring him back with you,
    so that he can share this meal with me.
    Indeed, son, I shall wait for you to come back.”

    Tobiah went out to look for some poor kinsman of ours.
    When he returned he exclaimed, “Father!”
    I said to him, “What is it, son?”
    He answered, “Father, one of our people has been murdered!
    His body lies in the market place where he was just strangled!”
    I sprang to my feet, leaving the dinner untouched;
    and I carried the dead man from the street
    and put him in one of the rooms,
    so that I might bury him after sunset.
    Returning to my own quarters, I washed myself
    and ate my food in sorrow.
    I was reminded of the oracle
    pronounced by the prophet Amos against Bethel:

    “All your festivals shall be turned into mourning,
    and all your songs into lamentation.”

    And I wept.
    Then at sunset I went out, dug a grave, and buried him.

    The neighbors mocked me, saying to one another:
    “He is still not afraid!
    Once before he was hunted down for execution
    because of this very thing;
    yet now that he has scarcely escaped,
    here he is again burying the dead!”


    PS 112:1b-2, 3b-4, 5-6

    R. (1b) Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Blessed the man who fears the LORD,
    who greatly delights in his commands.
    His posterity shall be mighty upon the earth;
    the upright generation shall be blessed.
    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    His generosity shall endure forever.
    Light shines through the darkness for the upright;
    he is gracious and merciful and just.
    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Well for the man who is gracious and lends,
    who conducts his affairs with justice;
    He shall never be moved;
    the just man shall be in everlasting remembrance.
    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.


    Mk 12:1-12

    Jesus began to speak to the chief priests, the scribes,
    and the elders in parables.
    "A man planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it,
    dug a wine press, and built a tower.
    Then he leased it to tenant farmers and left on a journey.
    At the proper time he sent a servant to the tenants
    to obtain from them some of the produce of the vineyard.
    But they seized him, beat him,
    and sent him away empty-handed.
    Again he sent them another servant.
    And that one they beat over the head and treated shamefully.
    He sent yet another whom they killed.
    So, too, many others;some they beat, others they killed.
    He had one other to send, a beloved son.
    He sent him to them last of all, thinking, 'They will respect my son.'
    But those tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir.
    Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.'
    So they seized him and killed him,
    and threw him out of the vineyard.
    What then will the owner of the vineyard do?
    He will come, put the tenants to death,
    and give the vineyard to others.
    Have you not read this Scripture passage:

    The stone that the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone;
    by the Lord has this been done,
    and it is wonderful in our eyes?"

    They were seeking to arrest him, but they feared the crowd,
    for they realized that he had addressed the parable to them.
    So they left him and went away.
