Tuesday of the Thirty-second Week in Ordinary Time (II)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Titus 2.1-8, 11-14

Say what is consistent with sound doctrine:
that older men should be temperate, sensible, sober minded,
sound in faith, in love, and in patience,
and that older women likewise be reverent in behavior,
not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of what is good,
that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
to be sober minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their husbands,
so that God’s word may not be blasphemed.
Likewise, exhort the younger men to be sober minded;
in all things showing yourself an example of good works;
in your teaching showing integrity, seriousness, incorruptibility,
and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned,
so that he who opposes you may be ashamed, having nothing evil thing to say about us.

The grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all humans,
instructing us for the purpose that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we shall live soberly, righteously, and godly in this age;
looking for the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity,
and purify for himself a people for his own possession,
zealous to do good.

Responsorial – Psalm 37.3-4, 18+23, 27-29 Resp. 39a

R. The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord.

Trust in the Lord, and do good.
Dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

R. The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord.

Commit your way to the Lord.
Trust also in him, and he will do this:
he will make your righteousness come out as the light,
and your justice as the noon day sun.

R. The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord.

Depart from evil, and do good.
Live securely forever.
For the Lord loves justice,
and does not forsake his saints, preserving them forever.
The unjust are punished,
and the children of the wicked shall be cut off.

R. The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord.

The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord.
He is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
The Lord helps them, and rescues them.
He rescues them from the wicked, and saves them,
Because they have taken refuge in him.

R. The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord.

Gospel - Luke 17:7-10

Jesus said to the Apostles:
Which one of you having a slave plowing, or feeding cattle,
when he comes in from the field, says to him, “Come here right now and sit down”?
Do you not say to him, “Prepare the meal, and put on your apron,
and serve me, while I eat and drink and afterward you may eat and drink”?
And you do not thank the slave because he did what you commanded, do you?

So you also, when you have done all that you are commanded, say,
“We are unprofitable slaves; what we have done, we were obligated to do.”
