    • Second Option – Gospel: Matthew 10:28-33
      November 14, 2018

      28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
      29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s will.
      30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
      31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
      32 So every one who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven;
      33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

    • Second Option – Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 31:3-4, 6-8, 17, 21
      November 14, 2018

      2 Incline thy ear to me, rescue me speedily! Be thou a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!
      3 Yea, thou art my rock and my fortress; for thy name’s sake lead me and guide me,
      5 Into thy hand I commit my spirit; thou hast redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.
      6 Thou hatest those who pay regard to vain idols; but I trust in the LORD.
      7 I will rejoice and be glad for thy steadfast love, because thou hast seen my affliction, thou hast taken heed of my adversities,
      16 Let thy face shine on thy servant; save me in thy steadfast love!
      20 In the covert of thy presence thou hidest them from the plots of men; thou holdest them safe under thy shelter from the strife of tongues.

    • Second Option – First Reading: Romans 8:31-39
      November 14, 2018

      31 What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who is against us?
      32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, will he not also give us all things with him?
      33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies;
      34 who is to condemn? Is it Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us?
      35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
      36 As it is written, “For thy sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
      37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
      38 For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
      39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    • First Option – Gospel: Luke 17:11-19
      November 14, 2018

      11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Sama’ria and Galilee.
      12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance
      13 and lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.”
      14 When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed.
      15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice;
      16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan.
      17 Then said Jesus, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine?
      18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”
      19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”

    • First Option – Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 23:1-6
      November 14, 2018

      1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want;
      2 he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters;
      3 he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
      4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
      5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows.
      6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
