Scripture of the Day

Reading 1 1 Cor 1:1-9
Paul, called to be an Apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,and Sosthenes our brother,to the Church of God that is in Corinth,to you who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be holy,with all those everywhere who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours.Grace to you and peace from God our Fatherand the Lord Jesus Christ.I give thanks to my God always on your accountfor the grace of God bestowed on you in Christ Jesus,that in him you were enriched in every way,with all discourse and all knowledge,as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you,so that you are not lacking in any spiritual giftas you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.He will keep you firm to the end,irreproachable on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.God is faithful,and by him you were called to fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Responsorial Psalm Ps 145:2-3, 4-5, 6-7
R. (1) I will praise your name for ever, Lord.Every day will I bless you,and I will praise your name forever and ever.Great is the LORD and highly to be praised;his greatness is unsearchable.R. I will praise your name for ever, Lord.Generation after generation praises your worksand proclaims your might.They speak of the splendor of your glorious majestyand tell of your wondrous works.R. I will praise your name for ever, Lord.They discourse of the power of your terrible deedsand declare your greatness.They publish the fame of your abundant goodnessand joyfully sing of your justice.R. I will praise your name for ever, Lord.
Alleluia 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 Mt 24:42-51

Jesus said to his disciples:“Stay awake!For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.Be sure of this: if the master of the househad known the hour of night when the thief was coming,he would have stayed awakeand not let his house be broken into.So too, you also must be prepared,for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.“Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant,whom the master has put in charge of his householdto distribute to them their food at the proper time?Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so.Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property.But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is long delayed,’and begins to beat his fellow servants,and eat and drink with drunkards,the servant’s master will come on an unexpected dayand at an unknown hour and will punish him severelyand assign him a place with the hypocrites,where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.”

August—The Month of Mary

The month of August is dedicated to The Immaculate Heart of Mary. The entire month falls within the liturgical season of Ordinary Time, which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time. The last portion of the liturgical year represents the time of our pilgrimage to heaven during which we hope for reward.
