1 Corinthians 1:1-9

You have been enriched in many ways in Christ

I, Paul,

appointed by God to be an apostle, together with brother Sosthenes,

send greetings to You

the church of God in Corinth,

to the holy people of

Jesus Christ,

who are called to take

their place among all

the saints everywhere

who pray to

our Lord

Jesus Christ;

for he

is their Lord

no less than

ours.

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ

send you

grace and

peace.

I never stop thanking God for

all the graces

you

have received through Jesus Christ.

I thank him that you

have been enriched in

so many ways, especially

in your teachers and

preachers; the witness to

Christ has indeed been

strong among you so that you will

not be

without any of the gifts of

the Spirit while you

are waiting

for our Lord

Jesus Christ to

be revealed;

and he will

keep you steady and

without blame

until the last day,

the day of our Lord

Jesus Christ,

because God by

calling you has joined you

to his Son,

Jesus Christ; and

God is faithful.

Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 144(145):2-7

I will bless your name for ever,

O Lord.

I will bless you day after day

and praise your name for ever.

The Lord is great,

highly to be praised,

his greatness cannot be measured.

I will bless your name for ever,

O Lord.

Age to age shall proclaim

your works,

shall declare your mighty deeds,

shall speak of your splendour

and glory,

tell the tale of your

wonderful works.

I will bless your name for ever,

O Lord.

They will speak of your terrible

deeds,

recount your greatness and

might….

They will recall your

abundant goodness;

age to age shall ring out

your justice.

I will bless your name for ever,

O Lord.

Gospel Acclamation

Jn15:15

Alleluia, alleluia!

I call you

friends,

says the Lord,

because I

have made known

to you

everything

I have learnt

from my Father.

Alleluia!

Or:

Mt24:42,44

Alleluia, alleluia!

Stay awake and stand

ready,

because you do not

know the hour

when the Son of Man

is coming.

Alleluia!

Gospel

Matthew 24:42-51

He is coming at an hour you do not expect

Jesus said to his disciples:

‘STAY AWAKE!!!!!,

because you

do not

know the day

when your master

is coming.

You

may be quite sure of this, …

that if

the householder

had known at what time of

the night

the burglar

would come,

he would have

STAYED AWAKE!!!!!!!

and would not

have allowed anyone

to break through

the wall

of his

house.

Therefore,

you too

MUST!!!!!

stand ready

because the Son of Man

is coming

at an hour

you

do not

expect.

‘What sort of servant,

then,

is faithful

and

wise enough

for the master

to

place him

over

his

household

to give them

their food

at the

proper time?

Happy that servant

if his master’s

arrival finds

him at this

employment.

I tell you solemnly,

he will

place him over everything

he owns.

But as for the dishonest servant

who says to himself,

“My master is taking his time,”

and sets about

beating his fellow servants

and

eating and drinking

with drunkards,

his master

will come

on a day

he does not expect and

at an hour

he does

not know.

The master will

cut him

off

and send

him

to the same fate as

the hypocrites,

where there

will

be weeping

and grinding

of teeth.
