Reading 1: SIR 35:12CD-14, 16-18A

The first reading from The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach or Ecclesiasticus.

For the Lord is the judge, and with him is no respect of persons.

He won’t accept any person against a poor man. He will listen to the prayer of him who is wronged.

He will in no way despise the supplication of the fatherless or the widow, when she pours out her tale.

He who serves God according to his good pleasure will be accepted. His supplication will reach to the clouds.

The prayer of the humble pierces the clouds. until it comes near, he will not be comforted. He won’t depart until the Most High visits and he judges righteously and executes judgment.

And the Lord will not be slack.

Reading 2: 2 TM 4:6-8, 16-18

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to Timothy.

For I am already being offered, and the time of my departure has come.

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith.

From now on, the crown of righteousness is stored up for me, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing.

At my first defense, no one came to help me, but all left me. May it not be held against them.

But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, that through me the message might be fully proclaimed, and that all the Gentiles might hear. So I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and will preserve me for his heavenly Kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Gospel of the Day: LK 18:9-14

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

Jesus also spoke this parable to certain people who were convinced of their own righteousness, and who despised all others: “Two men went up into the temple to pray; one was a Pharisee, and the other was a tax collector.

The Pharisee stood and prayed by himself like this: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of men: extortionists, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.

I fast twice a week. I give tithes of all that I get.’

But the tax collector, standing far away, wouldn’t even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
