First Reading - Sir Sir 3:2-6, 12-14

2. Sons, listen to the judgment of your father, and act accordingly, so that you may be saved.
3. For God has honored the father in the sons, and, when seeking the judgment of the mother, he has confirmed it in the children.
4. He who loves God will plead with him on behalf of sins, and will keep himself away from sin, and will be heeded in the prayers of his days.
5. And, like one who stores up treasure, so also is he who honors his mother.
6. He who honors his father will find happiness in his own children, and he will be heeded in the day of his prayer.
7. He who honors his father will live a long life. And he who obeys his father will be a refreshment to his mother.12. Do not boast in the disgrace of your father; for his shame is not your glory.
13. For the glory of a man is from the honor of his father, and a father without honor is a discredit to the son.
14. Son, support your father in his old age, and do not grieve him in his life.
