    Philippians 4:10-19

    10I rejoice in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me;you were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11Not that I complain of want;for I have learned, in whatever state I am, to be content. 12I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound;in any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and want. 13I can do all things in him who strengthens me. 14Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. 15And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedo'nia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving except you only;16for even in Thessaloni'ca you sent me help once and again. 17Not that I seek the gift;but I seek the fruit which increases to your credit. 18I have received full payment, and more;I am filled, having received from Epaphrodi'tus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. 19And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.


    Psalms 112:1-2, 5-6, 8-9

    1Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! 2His descendants will be mighty in the land;the generation of the upright will be blessed. 5It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. 6For the righteous will never be moved;he will be remembered for ever. 8His heart is steady, he will not be afraid, until he sees his desire on his adversaries. 9He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor;his righteousness endures for ever;his horn is exalted in honor.


    Luke 16:9-15

    9And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal habitations. 10"He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much;and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. 11If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own? 13No servant can serve two masters;for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." 14The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they scoffed at him. 15But he said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts;for what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

    Phil 3:3-8a

    Brothers and sisters:
    We are the circumcision,
    we who worship through the Spirit of God,
    who boast in Christ Jesus and do not put our confidence in flesh,
    although I myself have grounds for confidence even in the flesh.

    If anyone else thinks he can be confident in flesh, all the more can I.
    Circumcised on the eighth day,
    of the race of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin,
    a Hebrew of Hebrew parentage,
    in observance of the law a Pharisee,
    in zeal I persecuted the Church,
    in righteousness based on the law I was blameless.

    But whatever gains I had,
    these I have come to consider a loss because of Christ.
    More than that, I even consider everything as a loss
    because of the supreme good of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.


    Ps 105:2-3, 4-5, 6-7

    R. (3b) Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Sing to him, sing his praise,
    proclaim all his wondrous deeds.
    Glory in his holy name;
    rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD!
    R. Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Look to the LORD in his strength;
    seek to serve him constantly.
    Recall the wondrous deeds that he has wrought,
    his portents, and the judgments he has uttered.
    R. Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    You descendants of Abraham, his servants,
    sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
    He, the LORD, is our God;
    throughout the earth his judgments prevail.
    R. Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.


    Lk 15:1-10

    The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus,
    but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying,
    "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them."
    So Jesus addressed this parable to them.
    "What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them
    would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert
    and go after the lost one until he finds it?
    And when he does find it,
    he sets it on his shoulders with great joy
    and, upon his arrival home,
    he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them,
    'Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.'
    I tell you, in just the same way
    there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents
    than over ninety-nine righteous people
    who have no need of repentance.

    "Or what woman having ten coins and losing one
    would not light a lamp and sweep the house,
    searching carefully until she finds it?
    And when she does find it,
    she calls together her friends and neighbors
    and says to them,
    'Rejoice with me because I have found the coin that I lost.'
    In just the same way, I tell you,
    there will be rejoicing among the angels of God
    over one sinner who repents."
