    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 12:1, 5-15, 20

    Tobit called his son Tobiah and said to him,
    “Son, see to it that you give what is due to the man
    who made the journey with you;give him a bonus too.”
    So he called Raphael and said,
    “Take as your wages half of all that you have brought back,
    and go in peace.”

    Raphael called the two men aside privately and said to them:
    “Thank God! Give him the praise and the glory.
    Before all the living,
    acknowledge the many good things he has done for you,
    by blessing and extolling his name in song.
    Honor and proclaim God’s deeds,
    and do not be slack in praising him.
    A king’s secret it is prudent to keep,
    but the works of God are to be declared and made known.
    Praise them with due honor.
    Do good, and evil will not find its way to you.
    Prayer and fasting are good,
    but better than either is almsgiving accompanied by righteousness.
    A little with righteousness is better than abundance with wickedness.
    It is better to give alms than to store up gold;
    for almsgiving saves one from death and expiates every sin.
    Those who regularly give alms shall enjoy a full life;
    but those habitually guilty of sin are their own worst enemies.

    “I will now tell you the whole truth;
    I will conceal nothing at all from you.
    I have already said to you,
    ‘A king’s secret it is prudent to keep,
    but the works of God are to be made known with due honor.’
    I can now tell you that when you, Tobit, and Sarah prayed,
    it was I who presented and read the record of your prayer
    before the Glory of the Lord;
    and I did the same thing when you used to bury the dead.
    When you did not hesitate to get up
    and leave your dinner in order to go and bury the dead,
    I was sent to put you to the test.
    At the same time, however,
    God commissioned me to heal you and your daughter-in-law Sarah.
    I am Raphael, one of the seven angels
    who enter and serve before the Glory of the Lord.”

    “So now get up from the ground and praise God.
    Behold, I am about to ascend to him who sent me;
    write down all these things that have happened to you.”


    Tb 13:2, 6efgh, 7, 8

    R. (1b) Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    He scourges and then has mercy;
    he casts down to the depths of the nether world,
    and he brings up from the great abyss.
    No one can escape his hand.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    So now consider what he has done for you,
    and praise him with full voice.
    Bless the Lord of righteousness,
    and exalt the King of ages.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    In the land of my exile I praise him
    and show his power and majesty to a sinful nation.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    Bless the Lord, all you his chosen ones,
    and may all of you praise his majesty.
    Celebrate days of gladness, and give him praise.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.

    Alleluia Mt 5:3

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Blessed are the poor in spirit;
    for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Mark 12:38-44

    38And in his teaching he said, "Beware of the scribes, who like to go about in long robes, and to have salutations in the market places 39and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 40who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation." 41And he sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the multitude putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. 42And a poor widow came, and put in two copper coins, which make a penny. 43And he called his disciples to him, and said to them, "Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. 44For they all contributed out of their abundance;but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living."
