    1 Timothy 2:1-8
    1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men,
    2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way.
    3 This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
    4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
    5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
    6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to which was borne at the proper time.
    7 For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
    8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 28:2, 7-9
    2 Hear the voice of my supplication, as I cry to thee for help, as I lift up my hands toward thy most holy sanctuary.
    7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
    8 The LORD is the strength of his people, he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
    9 O save thy people, and bless thy heritage; be thou their shepherd, and carry them for ever.

  • Gospel

    Luke 7:1-10
    1 After he had ended all his sayings in the hearing of the people he entered Caper'na-um.
    2 Now a centurion had a slave who was dear to him, who was sick and at the point of death.
    3 When he heard of Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his slave.
    4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy to have you do this for him,
    5 for he loves our nation, and he built us our synagogue."
    6 And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, "Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof;
    7 therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed.
    8 For I am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, `Go,' and he goes; and to another, `Come,' and he comes; and to my slave, `Do this,' and he does it."
    9 When Jesus heard this he marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude that followed him, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith."
    10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave well.
