Gospel: Luke 9:43b-45
And all who saw it were astonished at God’s wonderful work. But while all were amazed at everything Jesus did, he said to his disciples, “Listen,
and remember what I tell you now: The Son of Man will be betrayed into the hands of men.” But the disciples didn’t understand this saying;
something prevented them from grasping what he meant, and they were afraid to ask him about it.
Gospel: Luke 9:18-22
One day, when Jesus was praying alone, not far from his disciples, he asked them, “What do people say about me?”
And they answered, “Some say, that you are John the Baptist; others say, that you are Elijah; and still others, that you are one of the prophets of old,
risen from the dead.” Again Jesus asked them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Gospel: Luke 9:7-9
King Herod heard of all this, and did not know what to think, for people said, “This is John, raised from the dead.” Others believed that Elijah,
or one of the ancient prophets, had come back to life. As for Herod, he said, “I had John beheaded. Who is this man, about whom I hear such wonders?”
And he was anxious to see him.
Gospel: Luke 9:1-6
Then Jesus called his Twelve disciples and gave them power and authority to drive out all evil spirits and to heal diseases.
And he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. He instructed them, “Don’t take anything for the journey, neither staff,
nor bag, nor bread, nor money; and don’t even take a spare tunic. Whatever house you enter, remain there until you leave that place.
And wherever they don’t welcome you, leave the town and shake the dust from your feet: it will be as a testimony against them.”
Gospel: Luke 8:19-21
Then his mother and his relatives came to him; but they could not get to him because of the crowd. Someone told him,
“Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and wish to meet you.” Then Jesus answered,
“My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.”
Gospel: Matthew 9:9-13
As Jesus moved on from there, he saw a man named Matthew, at his seat in the custom-house; and he said to him, “Follow me!”
And Matthew got up and followed him. Now it happened, while Jesus was at table in Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners joined Jesus and his disciples.
When the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why is it, that your master eats with sinners and tax collectors?” When Jesus heard this, he said,
“Healthy people do not need a doctor, but sick people do. Go, and find out what this means: What I want is mercy, not sacrifice.
Gospel: Matthew 20:1-16a
This story throws light on the kingdom of heaven: A landowner went out early in the morning, to hire workers for his vineyard.
He agreed to pay each worker the usual daily wage, and sent them to his vineyard. He went out again, at about nine in the morning, and,
seeing others idle in the town square, he said to them, ‘You also, go to my vineyard, and I will pay you what is just.’ So they went.
Gospel: Luke 8:4-15
As a great crowd gathered, and people came to him from every town, Jesus began teaching them with a story: “The sower went out to sow the seed. And as he sowed,
some of the seed fell along the way, was trodden on, and the birds of the sky ate it up. Some seed fell on rocky ground; and no sooner had it come up than it withered,
because it had no water. Some seed fell among thorns; the thorns grew up with the seed and choked it. But some seed fell on good soil and grew,
Gospel: Luke 8:1-3
Jesus walked through towns and countryside, preaching and giving the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve followed him, and also some women,
who had been healed of evil spirits and diseases: Mary called Magdalene, who had been freed of seven demons; Joanna, wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward;
Suzanna; and others, who provided for them out of their own funds.
Gospel: Luke 7:36-50
One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to share his meal, so he went to the Pharisee’s home, and as usual reclined at the table to eat.
And it happened that, a woman of this town, who was known as a sinner, heard that he was in the Pharisee’s house. She brought an alabaster jar of perfume,
and stood behind him, at his feet, weeping. She wet his feet with tears; she dried them with her hair; she kissed his feet and poured the perfume on them.
Gospel: Luke 7:31-35
And Jesus said, “What comparison can I use for the people? What are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace,
about whom their companions complain, ‘We piped you a tune and you wouldn’t dance; we sang funeral songs and you wouldn’t cry.’
Remember John: he didn’t eat bread or drink wine, and you said, ‘He has an evil spirit.’ Next, came the Son of Man, eating and drinking;
and you say, ‘Look, a glutton for food and wine, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But the children of Wisdom always recognize her work.”
Gospel: John 19:25-27 (or Luke 2: 33-35)
Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister Mary, who was the wife of Cleophas, and Mary of Magdala. When Jesus saw the mother,
and the disciple whom he loved, he said to the mother, “Woman, this is your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “This is your mother.”
And from that moment the disciple took her to his own home.

Among the first of them was one who owed him ten thousand pieces of gold. As the man could not repay the debt,
Gospel: Luke 6:43-49
No healthy tree bears bad fruit, no poor tree bears good fruit. And each tree is known by the fruit it bears: you don’t gather figs from thorns,
or grapes from brambles. Similarly, the good person draws good things from the good stored in his heart, and an evil person draws evil things from the evil stored in his heart. For the mouth speaks from the fullness of the heart. Why do you call me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ and do not do what I say?
