  • First Reading: 3 John 5-8

    5 Dearly beloved, thou dost faithfully whatever thou dost for the brethren, and that for strangers,
    6 Who have given testimony to thy charity in the sight of the church: whom thou shalt do well to bring forward on their way in a manner worthy of God.
    7 Because, for his name they went out, taking nothing of the Gentiles.
    8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we may be fellow helpers of the truth.

  • Psalm: Psalms 112:1-2, 3-4, 5-6

    1 Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: he shall delight exceedingly in his commandments.
    2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.
    3 Glory and wealth shall be in his house: and his justice remaineth for ever and ever.
    4 To the righteous a light is risen up in darkness: he is merciful, and compassionate and just.
    5 Acceptable is the man that sheweth mercy and lendeth: he shall order his words with judgment:
    6 Because he shall not be moved for ever.

  • Gospel: Luke 18:1-8

    1 And he spoke also a parable to them, that we ought always to pray, and not to faint,
    2 Saying: There was a judge in a certain city, who feared not God, nor regarded man.
    3 And there was a certain widow in that city, and she came to him, saying: Avenge me of my adversary.
    4 And he would not for a long time. But afterwards he said within himself: Although I fear not God, nor regard man,
    5 Yet because this widow is troublesome to me, I will avenge her, lest continually coming she weary me.
    6 And the Lord said: Hear what the unjust judge saith.
    7 And will not God revenge his elect who cry to him day and night: and will he have patience in their regard?
    8 I say to you, that he will quickly revenge them. But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?
