TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (MATTHEW 22:15-21)

The Pharisees went away to work out between them how to trap Jesus in what he said.

And they sent their disciples to him, together with the Herodians, to say, “Master, we know that you are an honest man and teach the way of God in an honest way,and and that you are not afraid of anyone, because a man’s rank means nothing to you. Tell us your opinion, then. Is it permissible to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”

But Jesus was aware of their malice and replied, “You hypocrites! Why do you set this trap for me? Let me see the money you pay the tax with.”

They handed him a denarius, and he said, “Whose head is this? Whose name?”
“Caesar’s”, they replied.

He then said to them, “Very well, give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar – and to God what belongs to God.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 12:1-7)

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 12:1-7)

Every hair on your head has been counted. 

The people had gathered in their thousands so that they were treading on one another. And Jesus began to speak, first of all to his disciples. “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees – that is, their hypocrisy. Everything that is now covered will be uncovered, and everything now hidden will be made clear. For this reason, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in hidden places will be proclaimed on the housetops.

“To you my friends I say: Do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. I will tell you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has the power to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Can you not buy five sparrows for two pennies? And yet not one is forgotten in God’s sight. Why, every hair on your head has been counted. There is no need to be afraid: you are worth more than hundreds of sparrows.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.

R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
