Último domingo del Tiempo ordinario
Solemnidad de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, Rey del Universo

Primera lectura 

Ez 34, 11-12. 15-17
Esto dice el Señor Dios: "Yo mismo iré a buscar a mis ovejas y velaré por ellas. Así como un pastor vela por su rebaño cuando las ovejas se encuentran dispersas, así velaré yo por mis ovejas e iré por ellas a todos los lugares por donde se dispersaron un día de niebla y oscuridad.

Yo mismo apacentaré a mis ovejas, yo mismo las haré reposar, dice el Señor Dios. Buscaré a la oveja perdida y haré volver a la descarriada; curaré a la herida, robusteceré a la débil, y a la que está gorda y fuerte, la cuidaré. Yo las apacentaré con justicia.

En cuanto a ti, rebaño mío, he aquí que yo voy a juzgar entre oveja y oveja, entre carneros y machos cabríos".


Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 22, 1-2a. 2b-3. 5-6
R. (1) El Señor es mi pastor, nada me faltará.
El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta:
en verdes praderas me hace reposar. 
y hacia fuentes tranquilas me conduce
para reparar mis fuerzas. 
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me faltará.
Tu mismo me preparas la mesa,
a despecho de mis adversarios; 
me unges la cabeza con perfume,
y llenas mi copa hasta los bordes. 
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me faltará.
Tu bondad y tu misericordia me acompañaran
todos los días de mi vida;
y viviré en la casa del Señor
por años sin término. 
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me faltará.

Segunda lectura

1 Co 15, 20-26. 28
Hermanos: Cristo resucitó, y resucitó como la primicia de todos los muertos. Porque si por un hombre vino la muerte, también por un hombre vendrá la resurrección de los muertos.

En efecto, así como en Adán todos mueren, así en Cristo todos volverán a la vida; pero cada uno en su orden: primero Cristo, como primicia; después, a la hora de su advenimiento, los que son de Cristo.

Enseguida será la consumación, cuando, después de haber aniquilado todos los poderes del mal, Cristo entregue el Reino a su Padre. Porque él tiene que reinar hasta que el Padre ponga bajo sus pies a todos sus enemigos. El último de los enemigos en ser aniquilado, será la muerte. Al final, cuando todo se le haya sometido, Cristo mismo se someterá al Padre, y así Dios será todo en todas las cosas.


Aclamación antes del Evangelio

Mc 11, 9. 10
R. Aleluya, aleluya.
¡Bendito el que viene en el nombre del Señor!
¡Bendito el reino que llega, el reino de nuestro padre David!
R. Aleluya.


Evangelio

Mt 25, 31-46
En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a sus discípulos: "Cuando venga el Hijo del hombre, rodeado de su gloria, acompañado de todos sus ángeles, se sentará en su trono de gloria. Entonces serán congregadas ante él todas las naciones, y él apartará a los unos de los otros, como aparta el pastor a las ovejas de los cabritos, y pondrá a las ovejas a su derecha y a los cabritos a su izquierda.

Entonces dirá el rey a los de su derecha: 'Vengan, benditos de mi Padre; tomen posesión del Reino preparado para ustedes desde la creación del mundo; porque estuve hambriento y me dieron de comer, sediento y me dieron de beber, era forastero y me hospedaron, estuve desnudo y me vistieron, enfermo y me visitaron, encarcelado y fueron a verme'. Los justos le contestarán entonces: 'Señor, ¿cuándo te vimos hambriento y te dimos de comer, sediento y te dimos de beber? ¿Cuándo te vimos de forastero y te hospedamos, o desnudo y te vestimos? ¿Cuándo te vimos enfermo o encarcelado y te fuimos a ver?' Y el rey les dirá: 'Yo les aseguro que, cuando lo hicieron con el más insignificante de mis hermanos, conmigo lo hicieron'.

Entonces dirá también a los de su izquierda: 'Apártense de mí, malditos; vayan al fuego eterno, preparado para el diablo y sus ángeles; porque estuve hambriento y no me dieron de comer, sediento y no me dieron de beber, era forastero y no me hospedaron, estuve desnudo y no me vistieron, enfermo y encarcelado y no me visitaron'.

Entonces ellos le responderán: 'Señor, ¿cuándo te vimos hambriento o sediento, de forastero o desnudo, enfermo o encarcelado y no te asistimos?' Y él les replicará: 'Yo les aseguro que, cuando no lo hicieron con uno de aquellos más insignificantes, tampoco lo hicieron conmigo'. Entonces irán éstos al castigo eterno y los justos a la vida eterna".

The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

Reading 1EZ 34:11-12, 15-17

Thus says the Lord GOD:
I myself will look after and tend my sheep. 
As a shepherd tends his flock
when he finds himself among his scattered sheep,
so will I tend my sheep.
I will rescue them from every place where they were scattered
when it was cloudy and dark. 
I myself will pasture my sheep;
I myself will give them rest, says the Lord GOD. 
The lost I will seek out,
the strayed I will bring back,
the injured I will bind up,
the sick I will heal,
but the sleek and the strong I will destroy,
shepherding them rightly.

As for you, my sheep, says the Lord GOD,
I will judge between one sheep and another,
between rams and goats.

Responsorial PsalmPS 23:1-2, 2-3, 5-6

R. (1) The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
Beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths
for his name's sake.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
Only goodness and kindness follow me
all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
for years to come.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

Reading 21 COR 15:20-26, 28

Brothers and sisters:
Christ has been raised from the dead,
the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 
For since death came through man,
the resurrection of the dead came also through man.
For just as in Adam all die,
so too in Christ shall all be brought to life,
but each one in proper order:
Christ the firstfruits;
then, at his coming, those who belong to Christ;
then comes the end,
when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father,
when he has destroyed every sovereignty
and every authority and power. 
For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 
The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
When everything is subjected to him,
then the Son himself will also be subjected
to the one who subjected everything to him,
so that God may be all in all.

AlleluiaMK 11:9, 10

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come!
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelMT 25:31-46

Jesus said to his disciples:
"When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
and all the angels with him,
he will sit upon his glorious throne,
and all the nations will be assembled before him. 
And he will separate them one from another,
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 
He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 
Then the king will say to those on his right,
'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. 
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me,
ill and you cared for me,
in prison and you visited me.'
Then the righteous will answer him and say,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,
or thirsty and give you drink? 
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you,
or naked and clothe you? 
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?'
And the king will say to them in reply,
'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.'
Then he will say to those on his left,
'Depart from me, you accursed,
into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me no food,
I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
a stranger and you gave me no welcome,
naked and you gave me no clothing,
ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.'
Then they will answer and say,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty
or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison,
and not minister to your needs?'
He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you,
what you did not do for one of these least ones,
you did not do for me.'
And these will go off to eternal punishment,
but the righteous to eternal life."

Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reading 1WIS 6:12-16

Resplendent and unfading is wisdom,
and she is readily perceived by those who love her,
and found by those who seek her.
She hastens to make herself known in anticipation of their desire;
Whoever watches for her at dawn shall not be disappointed,
for he shall find her sitting by his gate.
For taking thought of wisdom is the perfection of prudence,
and whoever for her sake keeps vigil
shall quickly be free from care;
because she makes her own rounds, seeking those worthy of her,
and graciously appears to them in the ways,
and meets them with all solicitude.

Responsorial PsalmPS 63:2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8

R. (2b) My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
O God, you are my God whom I seek;
for you my flesh pines and my soul thirsts
like the earth, parched, lifeless and without water.
R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
Thus have I gazed toward you in the sanctuary
to see your power and your glory,
For your kindness is a greater good than life;
my lips shall glorify you.
R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
Thus will I bless you while I live;
lifting up my hands, I will call upon your name.
As with the riches of a banquet shall my soul be satisfied,
and with exultant lips my mouth shall praise you.
R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
I will remember you upon my couch,
and through the night-watches I will meditate on you:
You are my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I shout for joy.
R. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.

Reading 21 THES 4:13-18

We do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters,
about those who have fallen asleep,
so that you may not grieve like the rest, who have no hope. 
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose,
so too will God, through Jesus,
bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 
Indeed, we tell you this, on the word of the Lord,
that we who are alive,
who are left until the coming of the Lord,
will surely not precede those who have fallen asleep.
For the Lord himself, with a word of command,
with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God,
will come down from heaven,
and the dead in Christ will rise first. 
Then we who are alive, who are left,
will be caught up together with them in the clouds
to meet the Lord in the air. 
Thus we shall always be with the Lord. 
Therefore, console one another with these words.

Or1 THES 4:13-14

We do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters,
about those who have fallen asleep,
so that you may not grieve like the rest, who have no hope. 
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose,
so too will God, through Jesus,
bring with him those who have fallen asleep.

AlleluiaMT 24:42A, 44

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Stay awake and be ready!
For you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelMT 25:1-13

Jesus told his disciples this parable:
"The kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins
who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 
Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 
The foolish ones, when taking their lamps,
brought no oil with them,
but the wise brought flasks of oil with their lamps. 
Since the bridegroom was long delayed,
they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
At midnight, there was a cry,
'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'
Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. 
The foolish ones said to the wise,
'Give us some of your oil,
for our lamps are going out.'
But the wise ones replied,
'No, for there may not be enough for us and you.
Go instead to the merchants and buy some for yourselves.'
While they went off to buy it,
the bridegroom came
and those who were ready went into the wedding feast with him. 
Then the door was locked.
Afterwards the other virgins came and said,
'Lord, Lord, open the door for us!'
But he said in reply,
'Amen, I say to you, I do not know you.'
Therefore, stay awake,
for you know neither the day nor the hour."

Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reading 1MAL 1:14B-2:2B, 8-10

A great King am I, says the LORD of hosts,
and my name will be feared among the nations.
And now, O priests, this commandment is for you:
If you do not listen,
if you do not lay it to heart,
to give glory to my name, says the LORD of hosts,
I will send a curse upon you
and of your blessing I will make a curse.
You have turned aside from the way,
and have caused many to falter by your instruction;
you have made void the covenant of Levi,
says the LORD of hosts.
I, therefore, have made you contemptible
and base before all the people,
since you do not keep my ways,
but show partiality in your decisions.
Have we not all the one father?
Has not the one God created us?
Why then do we break faith with one another,
violating the covenant of our fathers?

Responsorial PsalmPS 131:1, 2, 3

R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
O LORD, my heart is not proud,
nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things,
nor with things too sublime for me.
R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted
my soul like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother's lap,
so is my soul within me.
R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
O Israel, hope in the LORD,
both now and forever.
R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.

Reading 21 THES 2:7B-9, 13

Brothers and sisters:
We were gentle among you, as a nursing mother cares for her children. 
With such affection for you, we were determined to share with you
not only the gospel of God, but our very selves as well,
so dearly beloved had you become to us. 
You recall, brothers and sisters, our toil and drudgery. 
Working night and day in order not to burden any of you,
we proclaimed to you the gospel of God.

And for this reason we too give thanks to God unceasingly,
that, in receiving the word of God from hearing us,
you received not a human word but, as it truly is, the word of God,
which is now at work in you who believe.

AlleluiaMT 23:9B, 10B

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
You have but one Father in heaven
and one master, the Christ.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelMT 23:1-12

Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying,
"The scribes and the Pharisees
have taken their seat on the chair of Moses. 
Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you,
but do not follow their example. 
For they preach but they do not practice. 
They tie up heavy burdens hard to carry
and lay them on people's shoulders, 
but they will not lift a finger to move them. 
All their works are performed to be seen. 
They widen their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels. 
They love places of honor at banquets, seats of honor in synagogues,
greetings in marketplaces, and the salutation 'Rabbi.'
As for you, do not be called 'Rabbi.'
You have but one teacher, and you are all brothers. 
Call no one on earth your father;
you have but one Father in heaven.
Do not be called 'Master';
you have but one master, the Christ. 
The greatest among you must be your servant.
Whoever exalts himself will be humbled;
but whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
Nov 22, 2017

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reading 1EX 22:20-26

Thus says the LORD:
"You shall not molest or oppress an alien,
for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt. 
You shall not wrong any widow or orphan. 
If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me,
I will surely hear their cry. 
My wrath will flare up, and I will kill you with the sword;
then your own wives will be widows, and your children orphans.

"If you lend money to one of your poor neighbors among my people,
you shall not act like an extortioner toward him
by demanding interest from him. 
If you take your neighbor's cloak as a pledge,
you shall return it to him before sunset;
for this cloak of his is the only covering he has for his body. 
What else has he to sleep in?
If he cries out to me, I will hear him; for I am compassionate."

Responsorial PsalmPS 18:2-3, 3-4, 47, 51

R. (2) I love you, Lord, my strength.
I love you, O LORD, my strength,
O LORD, my rock, my fortress, my deliverer.
R. I love you, Lord, my strength.
My God, my rock of refuge,
my shield, the horn of my salvation, my stronghold!
Praised be the LORD, I exclaim,
and I am safe from my enemies.
R. I love you, Lord, my strength.
The LORD lives and blessed be my rock!
Extolled be God my savior.
You who gave great victories to your king
and showed kindness to your anointed.
R. I love you, Lord, my strength.

Reading 21 THES 1:5C-10

Brothers and sisters:
You know what sort of people we were among you for your sake. 
And you became imitators of us and of the Lord,
receiving the word in great affliction, with joy from the Holy Spirit,
so that you became a model for all the believers
in Macedonia and in Achaia.
For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth
not only in Macedonia and in Achaia,
but in every place your faith in God has gone forth,
so that we have no need to say anything. 
For they themselves openly declare about us
what sort of reception we had among you,
and how you turned to God from idols
to serve the living and true God
and to await his Son from heaven,
whom he raised from the dead,
Jesus, who delivers us from the coming wrath.

AlleluiaJN 14:23

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Whoever loves me will keep my word, says the Lord,
and my Father will love him and we will come to him.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelMT 22:34-40

When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees,
they gathered together, and one of them,
a scholar of the law tested him by asking,
"Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" 
He said to him,
"You shall love the Lord, your God,
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
and with all your mind.
This is the greatest and the first commandment.
The second is like it:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 
The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."

XXXIII Domingo ordinario
Leccionario: 157

Primera lectura 

Prov 31, 10-13. 19-20. 30-31
Dichoso el hombre que encuentra una mujer hacendosa:
Muy superior a las perlas es su valor.

Su marido confía en ella
y, con su ayuda, él se enriquecerá;
todos los días de su vida
le procurará bienes y no males.

Adquiere lana y lino
y los trabaja con sus hábiles manos.

Sabe manejar la rueca y con sus dedos mueve el huso;
abre sus manos al pobre y las tiende al desvalido.

Son engañosos los encantos y vana la hermosura;
merece alabanza la mujer que teme al Señor.

Es digna de gozar del fruto de sus trabajos
y de ser alabada por todos.


Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 127, 1-2. 3. 4-5
R. (cf. 1a) Dichoso el que teme al Señor.
Dichoso el que teme al Señor
y sigue sus caminos:
comerá del fruto de su trabajo,
será dichoso, le irá bien. 
R. Dichoso el que teme al Señor.
Su mujer como vida fecunda,
en medio de su casa;
sus hijos, como renuevos de olivo,
alrededor de su mesa. 
R. Dichoso el que teme al Señor.
Ésta es la bendición del hombre que teme al Señor:
"Que el Señor te bendiga desde Sión,
que veas la prosperidad de Jerusalén
todos los días de tu vida". 
R. Dichoso el que teme al Señor.

Segunda lectura

1 Tes 5, 1-6
Hermanos: Por lo que se refiere al tiempo y a las circunstancias de la venida del Señor, no necesitan que les escribamos nada, puesto que ustedes saben perfectamente que el día del Señor llegará como un ladrón en la noche. Cuando la gente esté diciendo: "¡Qué paz y qué seguridad tenemos!", de repente vendrá sobre ellos la catástrofe, como de repente le vienen a la mujer encinta los dolores del parto, y no podrán escapar.

Pero a ustedes, hermanos, ese día no los tomará por sorpresa, como un ladrón, porque ustedes no viven en tinieblas, sino que son hijos de la luz y del día, no de la noche y las tinieblas.

Por lo tanto, no vivamos dormidos, como los malos; antes bien, mantengámonos despiertos y vivamos sobriamente.


Aclamación antes del Evangelio

Jn 15, 4. 5
R. Aleluya, aleluya.
Permanezcan en mí y yo en ustedes, dice el Señor;
el que permanece en mí da fruto abundante.
R. Aleluya.


Evangelio

Mt 25, 14-30
En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a sus discípulos esta parábola: "El Reino de los cielos se parece también a un hombre que iba a salir de viaje a tierras lejanas; llamó a sus servidores de confianza y les encargó sus bienes. A uno le dio cinco talentos; a otro, dos; y a un tercero, uno, según la capacidad de cada uno, y luego se fue.

El que recibió cinco talentos fue enseguida a negociar con ellos y ganó otros cinco. El que recibió dos hizo lo mismo y ganó otros dos. En cambio, el que recibió un talento hizo un hoyo en la tierra y allí escondió el dinero de su señor.

Después de mucho tiempo regresó aquel hombre y llamó a cuentas a sus servidores.

Se acercó el que había recibido cinco talentos y le presentó otros cinco, diciendo: 'Señor, cinco talentos me dejaste; aquí tienes otros cinco, que con ellos he ganado'. Su señor le dijo: 'Te felicito, siervo bueno y fiel. Puesto que has sido fiel en cosas de poco valor, te confiaré cosas de mucho valor. Entra a tomar parte en la alegría de tu señor'.

Se acercó luego el que había recibido dos talentos y le dijo: 'Señor, dos talentos me dejaste; aquí tienes otros dos, que con ellos he ganado'. Su señor le dijo: 'Te felicito, siervo bueno y fiel. Puesto que has sido fiel en cosas de poco valor, te confiaré cosas de mucho valor. Entra a tomar parte en la alegría de tu señor'.

Finalmente, se acercó el que había recibido un talento y le dijo: 'Señor, yo sabía que eres un hombre duro, que quieres cosechar lo que no has plantado y recoger lo que no has sembrado. Por eso tuve miedo y fui a esconder tu talento bajo tierra. Aquí tienes lo tuyo'.

El señor le respondió: 'Siervo malo y perezoso. Sabías que cosecho lo que no he plantado y recojo lo que no he sembrado. ¿Por qué, entonces, no pusiste mi dinero en el banco, para que a mi regreso lo recibiera yo con intereses? Quítenle el talento y dénselo al que tiene diez. Pues al que tiene se le dará y le sobrará; pero al que tiene poco, se le quitará aun eso poco que tiene.

Y a este hombre inútil, échenlo fuera, a las tinieblas. Allí será el llanto y la desesperación' ".
