  • Gospel

    Luke 16:9-15
    9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal habitations.
    10 "He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much.
    11 If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust to you the true riches?
    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 be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."
    14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they scoffed at him.
    15 But he said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts; for what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

    Isaiah 61:1-3
    1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
    2 to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
    3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 89:2-5, 21-22, 25, 27
    1 I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever; with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations.
    2 For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens.
    3 Thou hast said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant:
    4 `I will establish your descendants for ever, and build your throne for all generations.'" [Selah]
    20 I have found David, my servant; with my holy oil I have anointed him;
    21 so that my hand shall ever abide with him, my arm also shall strengthen him.
    24 My faithfulness and my steadfast love shall be with him, and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
    26 He shall cry to me, `Thou art my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.'

  • Gospel

    Matthew 25:31-40
    31 "When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.
    32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,
    33 and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.
    34 Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;
    35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
    36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'
    37 Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink?
    38 And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee?
    39 And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?'
    40 And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'
