    Ephesians 2:1-10
    1 And you he made alive, when you were dead through the trespasses and sins
    2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience.
    3 Among these we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of body and mind, and so we were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.
    4 But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us,
    5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
    6 and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
    7 that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
    8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God --
    9 not because of works, lest any man should boast.
    10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 100:2-5
    2 Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!
    3 Know that the LORD is God! It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
    4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him, bless his name!
    5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures for ever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

  • Gospel

    Luke 12:13-21
    13 One of the multitude said to him, "Teacher, bid my brother divide the inheritance with me."
    14 But he said to him, "Man, who made me a judge or divider over you?"
    15 And he said to them, "Take heed, and beware of all covetousness; for a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."
    16 And he told them a parable, saying, "The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully;
    17 and he thought to himself, `What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?'
    18 And he said, `I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
    19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.'
    20 But God said to him, `Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?'
    21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."

    2 Corinthians 4:7-15
    7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, to show that the transcendent power belongs to God and not to us.
    8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
    9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
    10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
    11 For while we live we are always being given up to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
    12 So death is at work in us, but life in you.
    13 Since we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, "I believed, and so I spoke," we too believe, and so we speak,
    14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence.
    15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 126:1-6
    1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.
    2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
    3 The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad.
    4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb!
    5 May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy!
    6 He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 28:16-20
    16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.
    17 And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted.
    18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
    19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
    20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."
