  • First Reading: Wisdom 2:23–3:9

    23 For God created man incorruptible, and to the image of his own likeness he made him.
    24 But by the envy of the devil, death came into the world:
    25 And they follow him that are of his side.

    1 But the souls of the just are in the hand of God, and the torment of death shall not touch them.
    2 In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure was taken for misery:
    3 And their going away from us, for utter destruction: but they are in peace.
    4 And though in the sight of men they suffered torments, their hope is full of immortality.
    5 Afflicted in few things, in many they shall be well rewarded: because God hath tried them, and found them worthy of himself.
    6 As gold in the furnace he hath proved them, and as a victim of a holocaust he hath received them, and in time there shall be respect had to them.
    7 The just shall shine, and shall run to and fro like sparks among the reeds.
    8 They shall judge nations, and rule over people, and their Lord shall reign for ever.
    9 They that trust in him, shall understand the truth: and they that are faithful in love shall rest in him: for grace and peace is to his elect.

  • Psalm: Psalms 34:2-3, 16-17, 18-19

    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.
    16 The eyes of the Lord are upon the just: and his ears unto their prayers.
    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 The 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.

  • Gospel: Luke 17:7-10

    7 But which of you having a servant ploughing, or feeding cattle, will say to him, when he is come from the field: Immediately go, sit down to meat:
    8 And will not rather say to him: Make ready my supper, and gird thyself, and serve me, whilst I eat and drink, and afterwards thou shalt eat and drink?
    9 Doth he thank that servant, for doing the things which he commanded him?
    10 I think not. So you also, when you shall have done all these things that are commanded you, say: We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which we ought to do.
