    Romans 15:14-21
    14 I myself am satisfied about you, my brethren, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, and able to instruct one another.
    15 But on some points I have written to you very boldly by way of reminder, because of the grace given me by God
    16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
    17 In Christ Jesus, then, I have reason to be proud of my work for God.
    18 For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has wrought through me to win obedience from the Gentiles, by word and deed,
    19 by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Holy Spirit, so that from Jerusalem and as far round as Illyr'icum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ,
    20 thus making it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on another man's foundation,
    21 but as it is written, "They shall see who have never been told of him, and they shall understand who have never heard of him."

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 98:1-4
    1 O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory.
    2 The LORD has made known his victory, he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.
    3 He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.
    4 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!

  • Gospel

    Luke 16:1-8
    1 He also said to the disciples, "There was a rich man who had a steward, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his goods.
    2 And he called him and said to him, `What is this that I hear about you? Turn in the account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.'
    3 And the steward said to himself, `What shall I do, since my master is taking the stewardship away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg.
    4 I have decided what to do, so that people may receive me into their houses when I am put out of the stewardship.'
    5 So, summoning his master's debtors one by one, he said to the first, `How much do you owe my master?'
    6 He said, `A hundred measures of oil.' And he said to him, `Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.'
    7 Then he said to another, `And how much do you owe?' He said, `A hundred measures of wheat.' He said to him, `Take your bill, and write eighty.'
    8 The master commended the dishonest steward for his shrewdness; for the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light.

    Sirach 39:6-10
    6 If the great Lord is willing, he will be filled with the spirit of understanding; he will pour forth words of wisdom and give thanks to the Lord in prayer.
    7 He will direct his counsel and knowledge aright, and meditate on his secrets.
    8 He will reveal instruction in his teaching, and will glory in the law of the Lord's covenant.
    9 Many will praise his understanding, and it will never be blotted out; his memory will not disappear, and his name will live through all generations.
    10 Nations will declare his wisdom, and the congregation will proclaim his praise;

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 37:3-6, 30-31
    3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security.
    4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
    5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act.
    6 He will bring forth your vindication as the light, and your right as the noonday.
    30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice.
    31 The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 16:13-19
    13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesare'a Philip'pi, he asked his disciples, "Who do men say that the Son of man is?"
    14 And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Eli'jah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
    15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"
    16 Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
    17 And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
    18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.
    19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
