Forsake me not, O Lord, my God; be not far from me! Make haste and come to my help, O Lord, my strong salvation!


First Reading: Romans 15:14-21

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

I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers and sisters,
that you yourselves are full of goodness,
filled with all knowledge,
and able to instruct one another.

But on some points I have written to you very boldly
by way of reminder,
because of the grace given me by God
to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles
in the priestly service of the gospel of God,
so that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable,
sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

In Christ Jesus, then,
I have reason to be proud of my work for God.

For I will not venture to speak of anything
except what Christ has wrought through me
to win obedience from the Gentiles,
by word and deed,
by the power of signs and wonders,
by the power of the Holy Spirit,
so that from Jerusalem and as far round as Illyricum
I have fully preached the gospel of Christ,
thus making it my ambition to preach the gospel,
not where Christ has already been named,
lest I build on another man’s foundation,
but as it is written,
“They shall see who have never been told of him,
and they shall understand who have never heard of him.”

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 98:1.2-3ab.3cd-4 (R. see 2b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord has shown his deliverance to the nations.

O sing a new song to the Lord,
for he has worked wonders.
His right hand and his holy arm
have brought salvation.

The Lord has made known his salvation
has shown his deliverance to the nations.
He has remembered his merciful love
and his truth for the house of Israel.

All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.
Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song,
and sing out your praise.

R/. The Lord has shown his deliverance to the nations.


Please stand for the Gospel.

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 said to 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.


Communion Antiphon.
You will show me the path of life, the fullness of joy in your presence, O Lord.
