  • First Reading: Sirach 3:19-20, 22, 32-33

    19 My son, do thy works in meekness, and thou shalt be beloved above the glory of men.
    20 The greater thou art, the more humble thyself in all things, and thou shalt find grace before God:
    22 Seek not the things that are too high for thee, and search not into things above thy ability: but the things that God hath commanded thee, think on them always, and in many of his works be not curious.
    32 A wise heart, and which hath understanding, will abstain from sins, and in the works of justice shall have success.
    33 Water quencheth a flaming fire, and alms resisteth sins.

  • Psalm: Psalms 68:4-5, 6-7, 10-11

    4 And let the just feast, and rejoice before God: and be delighted with gladness.
    5 Sing ye to God, sing a psalm to his name, make a way for him who ascendeth upon the west: the Lord is his name. Rejoice ye before him: but the wicked shall be troubled at his presence,
    6 Who is the father of orphans, and the judge of widows. God in his holy place:
    7 God who maketh men of one manner to dwell in a house: Who bringeth out them that were bound in strength; in like manner them that provoke, that dwell in sepulchres.
    10 Thou shalt set aside for thy inheritance a free rain, O God: and it was weakened, but thou hast made it perfect.
    11 In it shall thy animals dwell; in thy sweetness, O God, thou hast provided for the poor.

  • Second Reading: Hebrews 12:18-19, 22-24

    18 For you are not come to a mountain that might be touched, and a burning fire, and a whirlwind, and darkness, and storm,
    19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words, which they that heard excused themselves, that the word might not be spoken to them:
    22 But you are come to mount Sion, and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to the company of many thousands of angels,
    23 And to the church of the firstborn, who are written in the heavens, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of the just made perfect,
    24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new testament, and to the sprinkling of blood which speaketh better than that of Abel.

  • Gospel: Luke 14:1, 7-14

    1 And it came to pass, when Jesus went into the house of one of the chief of the Pharisees, on the sabbath day, to eat bread, that they watched him.
    7 And he spoke a parable also to them that were invited, marking how they chose the first seats at the table, saying to them:
    8 When thou art invited to a wedding, sit not down in the first place, lest perhaps one more honourable than thou be invited by him:
    9 And he that invited thee and him, come and say to thee, Give this man place: and then thou begin with shame to take the lowest place.
    10 But when thou art invited, go, sit down in the lowest place; that when he who invited thee, cometh, he may say to thee: Friend, go up higher. Then shalt thou have glory before them that sit at table with thee.
    11 Because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled; and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted.
    12 And he said to him also that had invited him: When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, nor thy kinsmen, nor thy neighbours who are rich; lest perhaps they also invite thee again, and a recompense be made to thee.
    13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, and the blind;
    14 And thou shalt be blessed, because they have not wherewith to make thee recompense: for recompense shall be made thee at the resurrection of the just.
