    1 Thessalonians 4:9-11
    9 But concerning love of the brethren you have no need to have any one write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another;
    10 and indeed you do love all the brethren throughout Macedo'nia. But we exhort you, brethren, to do so more and more,
    11 to aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we charged you;

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 98:1, 7-9
    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.
    7 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it!
    8 Let the floods clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together
    9 before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 25:14-30
    14 "For it will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants and entrusted to them his property;
    15 to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.
    16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them; and he made five talents more.
    17 So also, he who had the two talents made two talents more.
    18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's money.
    19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
    20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, `Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.'
    21 His master said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'
    22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, `Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.'
    23 His master said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'
    24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, `Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow;
    25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.'
    26 But his master answered him, `You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed?
    27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.
    28 So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents.
    29 For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
    30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'

    1 John 4:7-16
    7 Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God.
    8 He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
    9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
    10 In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins.
    11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
    12 No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
    13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit.
    14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.
    15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
    16 So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 119:9-14
    9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word.
    10 With my whole heart I seek thee; let me not wander from thy commandments!
    11 I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    12 Blessed be thou, O LORD; teach me thy statutes!
    13 With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth.
    14 In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 23:8-12
    8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren.
    9 And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.
    10 Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ.
    11 He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;
    12 whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
