Reading 1, Sirach 35:12-14, 16-18
12 for the Lord is a judge who is utterly impartial.
13 He never shows partiality to the detriment of the poor, he listens to the plea of the injured party.
14 He does not ignore the orphan's supplication, nor the widow's as she pours out her complaint.
17 The prayer of the humble pierces the clouds: and until it does, he is not to be consoled,
18 nor will he desist until the Most High takes notice of him, acquits the upright and delivers judgement.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 34:2-3, 17-18, 19, 23
3 Proclaim with me the greatness of Yahweh, let us acclaim his name together.
17 They cry in anguish and Yahweh hears, and rescues them from all their troubles.
18 Yahweh is near to the broken-hearted, he helps those whose spirit is crushed.
19 Though hardships without number beset the upright, Yahweh brings rescue from them all.
Gospel, Luke 18:9-14
9 He spoke the following parable to some people who prided themselves on being upright and despised everyone else,
10 'Two men went up to the Temple to pray, one a Pharisee, the other a tax collector.
11 The Pharisee stood there and said this prayer to himself, "I thank you, God, that I am not grasping, unjust, adulterous like everyone else, and particularly that I am not like this tax collector here.
13 The tax collector stood some distance away, not daring even to raise his eyes to heaven; but he beat his breast and said, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner."
Reading 2, Second Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18
7 I have fought the good fight to the end; I have run the race to the finish; I have kept the faith;
8 all there is to come for me now is the crown of uprightness which the Lord, the upright judge, will give to me on that Day; and not only to me but to all those who have longed for his appearing.
16 The first time I had to present my defence, no one came into court to support me. Every one of them deserted me -- may they not be held accountable for it.
