  • First Reading: Sirach 35:16-18, 20-22b

    16 The Lord will not accept any person against a poor man, and he will hear the prayer of him that is wronged.
    17 He will not despise the prayers of the fatherless; nor the widow, when she poureth out her complaint.
    18 Do not the widow' s tears run down the cheek, and her cry against him that causeth them to fall?  
    20 He that adoreth God with joy, shall be accepted, and his prayer shall approach even to the clouds.
    21 The prayer of him that humbleth himself, shall pierce the clouds: and till it come nigh he will not be comforted: and he will not depart till the most High behold.
    22 b And the Lord will not be slack, but will judge for the just.

  • Psalm: Psalms 34:2-3, 17-18, 19, 23

    2 I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall be always in my mouth.
    3 In the Lord shall my soul be praised: let the meek hear and rejoice.
    17 But the countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil things: to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
    18 just cried, and the Lord heard them: and delivered them out of all their troubles.
    19 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit.
    23 The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall offend.

  • Second Reading: 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18

    6 For I am even now ready to be sacrificed: and the time of my dissolution is at hand.
    7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
    8 As to the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice, which the Lord the just judge will render to me in that day: and not only to me, but to them also that love his coming. Make haste to come to me quickly.
    16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all forsook me: may it not be laid to their charge.
    17 But the Lord stood by me, and strengthened me, that by me the preaching may be accomplished, and that all the Gentiles may hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
    18 The Lord hath delivered me from every evil work: and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

  • Gospel: Luke 18:9-14

    9 And to some who trusted in themselves as just, and despised others, he spoke also this parable:
    10 Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
    11 The Pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself: O God, I give thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican.
    12 I fast twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess.
    13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner.
    14 I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted.
