    Wisdom 7:22--8:1
    22 for wisdom, the fashioner of all things, taught me. For in her there is a spirit that is intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, clear, unpolluted, distinct, invulnerable, loving the good, keen, irresistible,
    23 beneficent, humane, steadfast, sure, free from anxiety, all-powerful, overseeing all, and penetrating through all spirits that are intelligent and pure and most subtle.
    24 For wisdom is more mobile than any motion; because of her pureness she pervades and penetrates all things.
    25 For she is a breath of the power of God, and a pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty; therefore nothing defiled gains entrance into her.
    26 For she is a reflection of eternal light, a spotless mirror of the working of God, and an image of his goodness.
    27 Though she is but one, she can do all things, and while remaining in herself, she renews all things; in every generation she passes into holy souls and makes them friends of God, and prophets;
    28 for God loves nothing so much as the man who lives with wisdom.
    29 For she is more beautiful than the sun, and excels every constellation of the stars. Compared with the light she is found to be superior,
    30 for it is succeeded by the night, but against wisdom evil does not prevail.
    1 She reaches mightily from one end of the earth to the other, and she orders all things well.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 119:89-91, 130, 135, 175
    89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is firmly fixed in the heavens.
    90 Thy faithfulness endures to all generations; thou hast established the earth, and it stands fast.
    91 By thy appointment they stand this day; for all things are thy servants.
    130 The unfolding of thy words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.
    135 Make thy face shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes.
    175 Let me live, that I may praise thee, and let thy ordinances help me.

  • Gospel

    Luke 17:20-25
    20 Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, he answered them, "The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed;
    21 nor will they say, `Lo, here it is!' or `There!' for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you."
    22 And he said to the disciples, "The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you will not see it.
    23 And they will say to you, `Lo, there!' or `Lo, here!' Do not go, do not follow them.
    24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of man be in his day.
    25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.

    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.'
