Reading 1 and// ROM 6:12-18 Brothers and sistersandSin must not reign over your mortal bodiesso that you obey their desires.And do not present the parts of your bodies to sinas weapons for wickedness,but present yourselves to God as raised from the dead to lifeand the parts of your bodies to Godas weapons for righteousness.For sin is not to have any power over you,since you are not under the law but under grace.What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the lawbut under grace?Of course not!Do you not know that if you present yourselvesto someone as obedient slaves,you are slaves of the one you obey,either of sin, which leads to death,or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?But thanks be to God that, although you were once slaves of sin,you have become obedient from the heartto the pattern of teaching to which you were entrusted.Freed from sin, you have become slaves of righteousness. Responsorial Psalm and// PS 124and1B-3, 4-6, 7-8 R. Our help is in the name of the Lord. Had not the LORD been with us,let Israel say, had not the LORD been with us–When men rose up against us,then would they have swallowed us aliveWhen their fury was inflamed against us. R.Our help is in the name of the Lord. Then would the waters have overwhelmed usThe torrent would have swept over usover us then would have swept the raging waters.Blessed be the LORD, who did not leave usa prey to their teeth. R.Our help is in the name of the Lord. We were rescued like a birdfrom the fowlers’ snareBroken was the snare,and we were freed.Our help is in the name of the LORD,who made heaven and earth. R.Our help is in the name of the Lord. Alleluia and// MT 24:42A, 44 R.Alleluia, alleluia.Stay awake!For you do not know when the Son of Man will come.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and// LK 12:39-48 Jesus said to his disciplesand Be sure of thisandif the master of the house had known the hourwhen the thief was coming,he would not have let his house be broken into.You also must be prepared,for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.”Then Peter said, Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?”And the Lord replied, Who, then, is the faithful and prudent stewardwhom the master will put in charge of his servantsto distribute the food allowance at the proper time?Blessed is that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so.Truly, I say to you, he will put himin charge of all his property.But if that servant says to himself,‘My master is delayed in coming,’and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants,to eat and drink and get drunk,then that servant’s master will comeon an unexpected day and at an unknown hourand will punish the servant severelyand assign him a place with the unfaithful.That servant who knew his master’s willbut did not make preparations nor act in accord with his willshall be beaten severelyand the servant who was ignorant of his master’s willbut acted in a way deserving of a severe beatingshall be beaten only lightly.Much will be required of the person entrusted with much,and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more.”
