    Wisdom 6:1-11
    1 Listen therefore, O kings, and understand; learn, O judges of the ends of the earth.
    2 Give ear, you that rule over multitudes, and boast of many nations.
    3 For your dominion was given you from the Lord, and your sovereignty from the Most High, who will search out your works and inquire into your plans.
    4 Because as servants of his kingdom you did not rule rightly, nor keep the law, nor walk according to the purpose of God,
    5 he will come upon you terribly and swiftly, because severe judgment falls on those in high places.
    6 For the lowliest man may be pardoned in mercy, but mighty men will be mightily tested.
    7 For the Lord of all will not stand in awe of any one, nor show deference to greatness; because he himself made both small and great, and he takes thought for all alike.
    8 But a strict inquiry is in store for the mighty.
    9 To you then, O monarchs, my words are directed, that you may learn wisdom and not transgress.
    10 For they will be made holy who observe holy things in holiness, and those who have been taught them will find a defense.
    11 Therefore set your desire on my words; long for them, and you will be instructed.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 82:3-4, 6-7
    3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
    4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
    6 I say, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;
    7 nevertheless, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince."

  • 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."

    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."
