    Ez 47:1-2, 8-9, 12

    The angel brought me
    back to the entrance of the temple,
    and I saw water flowing out
    from beneath the threshold of the temple toward the east,
    for the façade of the temple was toward the east;
    the water flowed down from the southern side of the temple,
    south of the altar.
    He led me outside by the north gate,
    and around to the outer gate facing the east,
    where I saw water trickling from the southern side.
    He said to me,
    "This water flows into the eastern district down upon the Arabah,
    and empties into the sea, the salt waters, which it makes fresh.
    Wherever the river flows,
    every sort of living creature that can multiply shall live,
    and there shall be abundant fish,
    for wherever this water comes the sea shall be made fresh.
    Along both banks of the river, fruit trees of every kind shall grow;
    their leaves shall not fade, nor their fruit fail.
    Every month they shall bear fresh fruit,
    for they shall be watered by the flow from the sanctuary.
    Their fruit shall serve for food, and their leaves for medicine."


    Ps 46:2-3, 5-6, 8-9

    R. (5) The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!
    God is our refuge and our strength,
    an ever-present help in distress.
    Therefore, we fear not, though the earth be shaken
    and mountains plunge into the depths of the sea.
    R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!
    There is a stream whose runlets gladden the city of God,
    the holy dwelling of the Most High.
    God is in its midst; it shall not be disturbed;
    God will help it at the break of dawn.
    R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!
    The LORD of hosts is with us;
    our stronghold is the God of Jacob.
    Come! behold the deeds of the LORD,
    the astounding things he has wrought on earth.
    R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!


    1 Cor 3:9c-11, 16-17

    Brothers and sisters:
    You are God's building.
    According to the grace of God given to me,
    like a wise master builder I laid a foundation,
    and another is building upon it.
    But each one must be careful how he builds upon it,
    for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there,
    namely, Jesus Christ.

    Do you not know that you are the temple of God,
    and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
    If anyone destroys God's temple,
    God will destroy that person;
    for the temple of God, which you are, is holy.


    Jn 2:13-22

    Since the Passover of the Jews was near,
    Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
    He found in the temple area those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves,
    as well as the money-changers seated there.
    He made a whip out of cords
    and drove them all out of the temple area, with the sheep and oxen,
    and spilled the coins of the money-changers
    and overturned their tables,
    and to those who sold doves he said,
    "Take these out of here,
    and stop making my Father's house a marketplace."
    His disciples recalled the words of Scripture,
    Zeal for your house will consume me.
    At this the Jews answered and said to him,
    "What sign can you show us for doing this?"
    Jesus answered and said to them,
    "Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up."
    The Jews said,
    "This temple has been under construction for forty-six years,
    and you will raise it up in three days?"
    But he was speaking about the temple of his Body.
    Therefore, when he was raised from the dead,
    his disciples remembered that he had said this,
    and they came to believe the Scripture
    and the word Jesus had spoken.


    Ordinary Time.


    phil 3:17-4:1

    Join with others in being imitators of me, brothers and sisters,
    and observe those who thus conduct themselves
    according to the model you have in us.
    For many, as I have often told you
    and now tell you even in tears,
    conduct themselves as enemies of the cross of Christ.
    Their end is destruction.
    Their God is their stomach;
    their glory is in their “shame.”
    Their minds are occupied with earthly things.
    But our citizenship is in heaven,
    and from it we also await a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
    He will change our lowly body
    to conform with his glorified Body
    by the power that enables him also
    to bring all things into subjection to himself.

    Therefore, my brothers and sisters,
    whom I love and long for, my joy and crown,
    in this way stand firm in the Lord, beloved.


    ps 122:1-2, 3-4ab, 4cd-5

    R. (1) Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
    I rejoiced because they said to me,
    “We will go up to the house of the LORD.”
    And now we have set foot
    within your gates, O Jerusalem.
    R. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
    Jerusalem, built as a city
    with compact unity.
    To it the tribes go up,
    the tribes of the LORD.
    R. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
    According to the decree for Israel,
    to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
    In it are set up judgment seats,
    seats for the house of David.
    R. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.


    lk 16:1-8

    Jesus said to his disciples, “A rich man had a steward
    who was reported to him for squandering his property.
    He summoned him and said,
    ‘What is this I hear about you?
    Prepare a full account of your stewardship,
    because you can no longer be my steward.’
    The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do,
    now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me?
    I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg.
    I know what I shall do so that,
    when I am removed from the stewardship,
    they may welcome me into their homes.’
    He called in his master’s debtors one by one.
    To the first he said, ‘How much do you owe my master?’
    He replied, ‘One hundred measures of olive oil.’
    He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note.
    Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.’
    Then to another he said, ‘And you, how much do you owe?’
    He replied, ‘One hundred measures of wheat.’
    He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note;
    write one for eighty.’
    And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.
    For the children of this world
    are more prudent in dealing with their own generation
    than the children of light.”
