    Titus 3:1-7
    1 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for any honest work,
    2 to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all men.
    3 For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by men and hating one another;
    4 but when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,
    5 he saved us, not because of deeds done by us in righteousness, but in virtue of his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit,
    6 which he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
    7 so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 23:1-6
    1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want;
    2 he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters;
    3 he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
    4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
    5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows.
    6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

  • Gospel

    Luke 17:11-19
    11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Sama'ria and Galilee.
    12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance
    13 and lifted up their voices and said, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us."
    14 When he saw them he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went they were cleansed.
    15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice;
    16 and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan.
    17 Then said Jesus, "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine?
    18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?"
    19 And he said to him, "Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well."

    Isaiah 61:1-3
    1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
    2 to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
    3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 89:2-5, 21-22, 25, 27
    1 I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever; with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations.
    2 For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens.
    3 Thou hast said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant:
    4 `I will establish your descendants for ever, and build your throne for all generations.'" [Selah]
    20 I have found David, my servant; with my holy oil I have anointed him;
    21 so that my hand shall ever abide with him, my arm also shall strengthen him.
    24 My faithfulness and my steadfast love shall be with him, and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
    26 He shall cry to me, `Thou art my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.'

  • Gospel

    Matthew 25:31-40
    31 "When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.
    32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,
    33 and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.
    34 Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;
    35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
    36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'
    37 Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink?
    38 And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee?
    39 And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?'
    40 And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'
