  • First Reading: Amos 8:4-7

    4 Hear this, you that crush the poor, and make the needy of the land to fail,
    5 Saying: When will the month be over, and we shall sell our wares: and the sabbath, and we shall open the corn: that we may lessen the measure, and increase the sicle, and may convey in deceitful balances,
    6 That we may possess the needy for money, and the poor for a pair of shoes, and may sell the refuse of the corn?
    7 The Lord hath sworn against the pride of Jacob: surely I will never forget all their works.

  • Psalm: Psalms 113:1-2, 4-6, 7-8

    1 Praise the Lord, ye children: praise ye the name of the Lord.
    2 Blessed be the name of the Lord, from henceforth now and for ever.
    4 The Lord is high above all nations; and his glory above the heavens.
    5 Who is as the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high:
    6 And looketh down on the low things in heaven and in earth?
    7 Raising up the needy from the earth, and lifting up the poor out of the dunghill:
    8 That he may place him with princes, with the princes of his people.

  • Second Reading: 1 Timonty 2:1-8

    1 I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men:
    2 For kings, and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity.
    3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour,
    4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
    5 For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus:
    6 Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times.
    7 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher and an apostle, (I say the truth, I lie not,) a doctor of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
    8 I will therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up pure hands, without anger and contention.

  • Gospel: Luke 16:1-13

    1 And he said also to his disciples: There was a certain rich man who had a steward: and the same was accused unto him, that he had wasted his goods.
    2 And he called him, and said to him: How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship: for now thou canst be steward no longer.
    3 And the steward said within himself: What shall I do, because my lord taketh away from me the stewardship? To dig I am not able; to beg I am ashamed.
    4 I know what I will do, that when I shall be removed from the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
    5 Therefore calling together every one of his lord's debtors, he said to the first: How much dost thou owe my lord?
    6 But he said: An hundred barrels of oil. And he said to him: Take thy bill and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
    7 Then he said to another: And how much dost thou owe? Who said: An hundred quarters of wheat. He said to him: Take thy bill, and write eighty.
    8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, forasmuch as he had done wisely: for the children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light.
    9 And I say to you: Make unto you friends of the mammon of iniquity; that when you shall fail, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings.
    10 He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in that which is greater: and he that is unjust in that which is little, is unjust also in that which is greater.
    11 If then you have not been faithful in the unjust mammon; who will trust you with that which is the true?
    12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's; who will give you that which is your own?
    13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
