First Reading: Philippians 3:17 – 4:1

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Philippians.

Brothers and sisters, join in imitating me,
and mark those who so walk
as you have an example in us.
For many, of whom I have often told you
and now I tell you even with tears,
walk as enemies of the cross of Christ.
Their end is destruction;
their god is the belly,
and they glory is in their shame;
with minds set on earthly things.
But our commonwealth is in heaven,
and from it we await a Saviour,
the Lord Jesus Christ,
who will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body,
by the power which enables him
even to subject all things to himself.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters,
whom I love and long for,
my joy and crown,
stand firm in  this way in the Lord in this way, my beloved.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 122:1-2.3-4ab.4cd-5 (R. see 1)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.

I rejoiced when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
And now our feet are standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city
bonded as one together.
It is there that the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord.

For Israel’s witness it is
to praise the name of the Lord.
There were set the thrones for judgment,
the thrones of the house of David.

R/. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
Whoever keeps Christ’s word, in him truly love for God is perfected.


Gospel: Luke 16:1-8

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to the disciples,
“There was a rich man who had a steward,
and charges were brought to him
that this man was wasting his goods.
And he called him and said to him,
‘What is this that I hear about you?
Turn in the account of your stewardship,
for you can no longer be steward.’

‘And the steward said to himself,
what shall I do,
since my master is taking the stewardship away from me?
I am not strong enough to dig,
and I am ashamed to beg.
I have decided what to do
so that people may receive me into their houses,
when I am put out of the stewardship.’

So, summoning his master’s debtors one by one,
he asked the first,
‘How much do you owe my master?’

He said, ‘A hundred measures of oil.’
And he said to him,
‘Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’

Then he said to another,
‘And how much do you owe?’

He said, ‘A hundred measures of wheat.’

He said to him,
‘Take your bill, and write eighty.’

The master commended the dishonest steward
for his prudence;
for the children of this world are wiser in their own generation
than the children of light.’

The Gospel of the Lord.
