  • First Reading: Romans 6:12-18

    12 Let no sin therefore reign in your mortal body, so as to obey the lusts thereof.
    13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of iniquity unto sin; but present yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of justice unto God.
    14 For sin shall not have dominion over you; for you are not under the law, but under grace.
    15 What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
    16 Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are whom you obey, whether it be of sin unto death, or of obedience unto justice.
    17 But thanks be to God, that you were the servants of sin, but have obeyed from the heart, unto that form of doctrine, into which you have been delivered.
    18 Being then freed from sin, we have been made servants of justice.

  • Psalm: Psalms 124:1b-3, 4-6, 7-8

    1 If it had not been that the Lord was with us, let Israel now say:
    2 If it had not been that the Lord was with us, When men rose up against us,
    3 Perhaps they had swallowed us up alive. When their fury was enkindled against us,
    4 Perhaps the waters had swallowed us up.
    5 Our soul hath passed through a torrent: perhaps our soul had passed through a water insupportable.
    6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us to be a prey to their teeth.
    7 Our soul hath been delivered as a sparrow out of the snare of the fowlers. The snare is broken, and we are delivered.
    8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

  • Gospel: Luke 12:39-48

    39 But this know ye, that if the householder did know at what hour the thief would come, he would surely watch, and would not suffer his house to be broken open.
    40 Be you then also ready: for at what hour you think not, the Son of man will come.
    41 And Peter said to him: Lord, dost thou speak this parable to us, or likewise to all?
    42 And the Lord said: Who (thinkest thou) is the faithful and wise steward, whom his lord setteth over his family, to give them their measure of wheat in due season?
    43 Blessed is that servant, whom when his lord shall come, he shall find so doing.
    44 Verily I say to you, he will set him over all that he possesseth.
    45 But if that servant shall say in his heart: My lord is long a coming; and shall begin to strike the menservants and maidservants, and to eat and to drink and be drunk:
    46 The lord of that servant will come in the day that he hopeth not, and at the hour that he knoweth not, and shall separate him, and shall appoint him his portion with unbelievers.
    47 And that servant who knew the will of his lord, and prepared not himself, and did not according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
    48 But he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. And unto whomsoever much is given, of him much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will demand the more.
