    Reading 1 Am 8:4-7

    Hear this, you who trample upon the needy
     and destroy the poor of the land!
     “When will the new moon be over,” you ask,
     “that we may sell our grain,
     and the sabbath, that we may display the wheat?
     We will diminish the ephah,
     add to the shekel,
     and fix our scales for cheating!
     We will buy the lowly for silver,
     and the poor for a pair of sandals;
     even the refuse of the wheat we will sell!”
     The LORD has sworn by the pride of Jacob:
     Never will I forget a thing they have done!

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 113:1-2, 4-6, 7-8

    R. (cf. 1a, 7b) Praise the Lord who lifts up the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Praise, you servants of the LORD,
     praise the name of the LORD.
    Blessed be the name of the LORD
     both now and forever.
    R. Praise the Lord who lifts up the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    High above all nations is the LORD;
     above the heavens is his glory.
    Who is like the LORD, our God, who is enthroned on high
     and looks upon the heavens and the earth below?
    R. Praise the Lord who lifts up the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    He raises up the lowly from the dust;
     from the dunghill he lifts up the poor
    to seat them with princes,
     with the princes of his own people.
    R. Praise the Lord who lifts up the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    Reading 2 1 Tm 2:1-8

    Beloved:
    First of all, I ask that supplications, prayers,
    petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone,
    for kings and for all in authority,
    that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life
    in all devotion and dignity.
    This is good and pleasing to God our savior,
    who wills everyone to be saved
    and to come to knowledge of the truth.
    For there is one God.
    There is also one mediator between God and men,
         the man Christ Jesus,
    who gave himself as ransom for all.
    This was the testimony at the proper time.
    For this I was appointed preacher and apostle
    — I am speaking the truth, I am not lying —,
    teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

    It is my wish, then, that in every place the men should pray,
    lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument.

    Alleluia Cf. 2 Cor 8:9

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Though our Lord Jesus Christ was rich, he became poor,
    so that by his poverty you might become rich.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Lk 16:1-13

    Jesus said to his disciples,
    “A rich man had a steward
    who was reported to him for squandering his property.
    He summoned him and said,
    ‘What is this I hear about you?
    Prepare a full account of your stewardship,
    because you can no longer be my steward.’
    The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do,
    now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me?
    I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg.
    I know what I shall do so that,
    when I am removed from the stewardship,
    they may welcome me into their homes.’
    He called in his master’s debtors one by one.
    To the first he said,
    ‘How much do you owe my master?’
    He replied, ‘One hundred measures of olive oil.’
    He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note.
    Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.’
    Then to another the steward said, ‘And you, how much do you owe?’
    He replied, ‘One hundred kors of wheat.’
    The steward said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note;
    write one for eighty.’
    And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.
    “For the children of this world
    are more prudent in dealing with their own generation
    than are the children of light.
    I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth,
    so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
    The person who is trustworthy in very small matters
    is also trustworthy in great ones;
    and the person who is dishonest in very small matters
    is also dishonest in great ones.
    If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth,
    who will trust you with true wealth?
    If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another,
    who will give you what is yours?
    No servant can serve two masters.
    He will either hate one and love the other,
    or be devoted to one and despise the other.
    You cannot serve both God and mammon.”

    Or Lk 16:10-13

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “The person who is trustworthy in very small matters
    is also trustworthy in great ones;
    and the person who is dishonest in very small matters
    is also dishonest in great ones.
    If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth,
    who will trust you with true wealth?
    If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another,
    who will give you what is yours?
    No servant can serve two masters.
    He will either hate one and love the other,
    or be devoted to one and despise the other.
    You cannot serve both God and mammon.”
