If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?  But with you is found forgiveness, O God of Israel.

First Reading: Ephesians 1:11-14

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Ephesians

Brothers and sisters: In Christ, according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will, we who first hoped in Christ have been destined and appointed to live for the praise of his glory. In him you also, who have heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and have believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Psalm 33:1-2.4-5.12-13

R/. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen as his heritage.

Ring out your joy to the Lord, O you just;
for praise is fitting for the upright.
Give thanks to the Lord upon the harp;
with a ten-stringed lute sing him songs.

For the word of the Lord is faithful,
and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord loves justice and right,
and his merciful love fills the earth.

Blessed the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his heritage.
From the heavens the Lord looms forth;
he sees all the children of men.

R/. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen as his heritage.

Gospel acclamation:
Alleluia. Alleluia
May your merciful love be upon us, as we hope in you, O Lord. Alleluia.

Gospel: Luke 12:1-7

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time: When so many thousands of the multitude had gathered together that they trod upon one another, he began to say to his disciples first, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. “I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear him! Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon
The rich suffer want and go hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no blessing.
