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

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Revelation 3.1-6, 14-22

“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write:
“He who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars says these things:
“I know your works, that you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.
Wake up, and keep the things that remain, which you were about to throw away,
for I have found no works of yours perfected before my God.
Remember therefore how you have received and heard. Keep it, and repent.
If therefore you will not watch, I will come as a thief,
and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.
Nevertheless you have a few names in Sardis that did not defile their garments.
They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy.
He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments,
and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life,
and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
The Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Head of God’s creation, says these things:
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot.
So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of my mouth.
Because you say, ‘I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing;’
and do not know that you are the wretched one, miserable, poor, blind, and naked;
I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich; and white garments,
that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed;
and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.
As many as I love, I reprove and chasten. Be zealous therefore, and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,
I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me.
He who overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with me on my throne,
as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father on his throne.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Responsorial – Psalm 15.2-3a, 3bc-4ab, 5 Resp. Revelation 3.21

R. I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.

He who walks blamelessly and does what is right,
and speaks truth in his heart;
and does not slander with his tongue,

R. I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.

He who does no evil to his friend,
nor casts slurs against his fellow human;
in whose eyes a vile man is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord.

R. I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.

He who does not lend out his money for usury,
nor takes a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things
shall never be shaken.

R. I will seat the victor beside me on my throne.

Gospel – Luke 19.1-10

Jesus entered Jericho to pass through.
And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus,who was the chief tax collector, and he was rich.
And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was short.
So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was going to pass that way.
And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and saw him,
and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”
And he made haste and came down and received him joyfully.

But when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, “He went to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.”
But Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, half of my goods I give to the poor,
and if I have taken anything from anyone falsely, I will give it back fourfold.
And Jesus said to him, “This day salvation has come to this house, for he also is a son of Abraham.”
For the Son of Human has come to seek and to save what was lost.
