  • First Reading: Wisdom 13:1-9

    1 But all men are vain, in whom there is not the knowledge of God: and who by these good things that are seen, could not understand him that is, neither by attending to the works have acknowledged who was the workman:
    2 But have imagined either the fire, or the wind, or the swift air, or the circle of the stars, or the great water, or the sun and moon, to be the gods that rule the world.
    3 With whose beauty, if they, being delighted, took them to be gods: let them know how much the Lord of them is more beautiful than they: for the first author of beauty made all those things.
    4 Or if they admired their power and their effects, let them understand by them, that he that made them, is mightier than they:
    5 For by the greatness of the beauty, and of the creature, the creator of them may be seen, so as to be known thereby.
    6 But yet as to these they are less to be blamed. For they perhaps err, seeking God, and desirous to find him.
    7 For being conversant among his works, they search: and they are persuaded that the things are good which are seen.
    8 But then again they are not to be pardoned.
    9 For if they were able to know so much as to make a judgment of the world: how did they not more easily find out the Lord thereof?

  • Psalm: Psalms 19:2-3, 4-5

    2 The heavens shew forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of his hands.
    3 Day to day uttereth speech, and night to night sheweth knowledge.
    4 There are no speeches nor languages, where their voices are not heard.
    5 Their sound hath gone forth into all the earth: and their words unto the ends of the world.

  • Gospel: Luke 17:26-37

    26 And as it came to pass in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
    27 They did eat and drink, they married wives, and were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark: and the flood came and destroyed them all.
    28 Likewise as it came to pass, in the days of Lot: they did eat and drink, they bought and sold, they planted and built.
    29 And in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
    30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed.
    31 In that hour, he that shall be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not go down to take them away: and he that shall be in the field, in like manner, let him not return back.
    32 Remember Lot' s wife.
    33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose it, shall preserve it.
    34 I say to you: in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
    35 Two women shall be grinding together: the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left: two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
    36 They answering, say to him: Where, Lord?
    37 Who said to them: Wheresoever the body shall be, thither will the eagles also be gathered together.
