FIRST READING:
Prov. 31: 10-13, 19-20, 30-31 "Give her a share in what she has worked for."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 128 "Happy are those who fear the Lord."

SECOND READING:
1 Thess. 5: 1-6 "The Day of the Lord is going to come like a thief in the night."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Jn. 15: 4-5 "Live in me and let me live in you, says the Lord; my branches bear much fruit."

GOSPEL: Mt. 25: 14-30 "Since you were dependable in a small matter I will put you in charge of larger affairs."


FOCUS: The gifts God gives us are not to be squandered, but to be used for the benefit of all.

REFLECTION: "Do as the storekeeper does with his merchandise: make a profit on every article. Suffer not the loss of the tiniest fragment of the true cross. It may only be the sting of a fly or the point of a pin that annoys you; it may be the little eccentricities of a neighbor, some unintentional slight, the insignificant loss of a penny, some little restlessness of soul, a slight physical weakness, a light pain in your limbs. Make a profit on every article as the grocer does, and you will soon be wealthy in God."
St. Louis de Montfort

"To be sober means not to let the heart cling to anything except God. Cleaving to other things makes the soul drunk, and it begins to do quite unaccountable things. To be vigilant means to watch carefully,

lest something evil spring up in the heart." Theophane the Recluse

"Live in me and let me live in you, says the Lord; my branches bear much fruit."

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduce the liturgy by saying there can be no delay in the practising of our faith. We are not to worry about when the end times will be. Rather, we are to live up to God's gifts by obeying his commandments. Now.

Sprinkling rite or
Penitential rite: Third form with second set of sample invocations

General Intercessions
Introduction: My brothers and sisters, when he comes, let us not be asleep but awake and sober, and obeying his commandments. May God find favor with our use of the gifts he has given us:
For the holy Church of God: May its guardianship of the teachings of the Divine Christ find favor with God;
For all peoples of the world: May we all love one another in peace;
For all our sisters and brothers in need: May our answer to their call find favor with God;
May we all, each of us, be awake and sober, and attending to the Lord's business at all times, for the glory of God.

Preface: Sixth preface in Ordinary Time
The Lord's Prayer: See fourth sample invitation
Prayers over the people: First or sixteenth or
Solemn Blessing in Ordinary time: Fourth or fifth.
Faith Formation
How can we know what God wants of us? We must listen. How do we know we are seeing and hearing God, and not deluding ourselves? If God tells you to be kind and loving, that's God. If he tells you anything else, you've got the wrong number. Try again.
Even though Jesus warns us against greed and avarice many times, he doesn't want us to be stupid with our riches, including money and spiritual wisdom. We will be held to account for the grace and gifts God has given us.
Share God's love with everyone. Nothing he gives us is for just one person, let everyone share in the love. If God answers your prayers that you not die today, use the time you have left to love God and those around you.
Make a copy of the First Reading for today and nail it up at the city gates. Well, at least post it on your web site. Praising worthy wives is bound to help everyone.

Children's Liturgy of the Word
Today I'm going to tell you a secret: Happiness comes not from things but from our hearts, from loving each other. If you can be happy when others are happy, then you are going to be happy a lot more of the time than if you can only be happy when things are going good for you. Be happy when your sister gets a lot of presents for her birthday: It makes her happy, so it should make you happy, too, because you love her, don't you? God does.
