    1 Corinthians 1:1-9
    1 Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and our brother Sos'thenes,
    2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:
    3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    4 I give thanks to God always for you because of the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus,
    5 that in every way you were enriched in him with all speech and all knowledge --
    6 even as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you --
    7 so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ;
    8 who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 145:2-7
    2 Every day I will bless thee, and praise thy name for ever and ever.
    3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.
    4 One generation shall laud thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
    5 On the glorious splendor of thy majesty, and on thy wondrous works, I will meditate.
    6 Men shall proclaim the might of thy terrible acts, and I will declare thy greatness.
    7 They shall pour forth the fame of thy abundant goodness, and shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 24:42-51
    42 Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
    43 But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into.
    44 Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
    45 "Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time?
    46 Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing.
    47 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions.
    48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, `My master is delayed,'
    49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eats and drinks with the drunken,
    50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know,
    51 and will punish him, and put him with the hypocrites; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.

    1 John 4:7-16
    7 Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God.
    8 He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
    9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
    10 In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins.
    11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
    12 No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
    13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit.
    14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.
    15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
    16 So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 119:9-14
    9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word.
    10 With my whole heart I seek thee; let me not wander from thy commandments!
    11 I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    12 Blessed be thou, O LORD; teach me thy statutes!
    13 With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth.
    14 In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 23:8-12
    8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren.
    9 And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.
    10 Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ.
    11 He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;
    12 whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
