Entrance Antiphon

All the richest of the people long to see your face: behind her, her maiden companions are escorted to the King: her attendants are escorted to you amid gladness and joy.

First Reading: Philippians 4:10-19

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Philippians

Brothers and sisters:
I rejoice in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me;
you were indeed concerned for me,
but you had no opportunity.
Not that I complain of want;
for I have learnt, in whatever state I am, to be content.
I know how to be abased,
and I know how to abound;
in any and all circumstances I have learnt the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and want.
I can do all things in him who strengthens me.
Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble.
And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia,
no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving
except you only;
for even in Thessalonica you sent me help
once and again.
Not that I seek the gift;
but I seek the fruit which increases to your credit.
I have received full payment, and more;
I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent,
a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God.
And my God will supply every need of yours
according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Ps 112:1b-2.5-6.8a and 9 (R. 1a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm beginning and ending with the response

R/. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.

Blessed the man who fears the Lord,
who takes great delight in his commandments.
His descendants shall be powerful on earth;
the generation of the upright will be blest.

It goes well for the man who deals generously and lends,
who conducts his affairs with justice.
He will never be moved;
forever shall the just be remembered.

With a steadfast heart he will not fear.
Open-handed, he gives to the poor;
his justice stands firm forever.
His might shall be exalted in glory.

R/. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.

Gospel acclamation:
Alleluia. Alleluia.
Though Jesus Christ was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. Alleluia.

Gospel: Luke 16:9-15

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples,
“Make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon,
so that when it fails
they may receive you into the eternal habitations.
“He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much;
and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much.
If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon,
who will entrust to you the true riches?
And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s,
who will give you that which is your own?
No servant can serve two masters;
for either he will hate the one and love the other,
or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve God and mammon.”
The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this,
and they scoffed at him.
But he said to them,
“You are those who justify yourselves before people,
but God knows your hearts;
for what is exalted among people is an abomination in the sight of God

The Gospel of the Lord.
