Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st book of Kings


The LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream at night. God said, "Ask something of me and I will give it to you."
O LORD, my God, you have made me, your servant, king to succeed my father David; but I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act.
I serve you in the midst of the people whom you have chosen, a people so vast that it cannot be numbered or counted.
Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong. For who is able to govern this vast people of yours?"
The LORD was pleased that Solomon made this request.
So God said to him: "Because you have asked for this--not for a long life for yourself, nor for riches, nor for the life of your enemies, but for understanding so that you may know what is right--
I do as you requested. I give you a heart so wise and understanding that there has never been anyone like you up to now, and after you there will come no one to equal you.



I have said to the LORD, that my part;
is to keep your words.
The law of your mouth is to me more precious
than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
Let your kindness comfort me
in accord with your promise to your servant.
Let your compassion come to me that I may live,
for your law is my delight.
For I love your commands
more than the finest gold.
For in all your precepts I go forward;
every false way I hate.
Wonderful are your decrees;
therefore I observe them.
The revelation of your words sheds light,
giving understanding to the simple.

Letter to the Romans


Brothers and sisters: We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.
For those he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, so that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
And those he predestined he also called; and those he called he also justified; and those he justified he also glorified.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Jesus said to his disciples: “The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls.
When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it".
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind.
When it is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away.
Thus it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous
and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.
Do you understand all these things? They answered, "Yes."
And he replied, "Then every scribe who has been instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his storeroom both the new and the old."

St. Peter Chrysologus(Bishop and Doctor of the Church (406-450))

SAINT PETER CHRYSOLOGUSBishop and Doctor of the Church(406-450) Born about 400 AD, St. Peter Chrysologus was the bishop of Ravenna. As a powerful preacher, he was named Chrysologus, which means, "golden-worded." More than 180 of his sermons have survived, mainly on scripture and the liturgical year.

St. Germanus(Bishop († 448))

ST. GERMANUS Bishop ( 448) In his youth, St. Germanus showed few signs of sanctity. He was of noble birth, and at first practiced law at Rome. After a time, the Emperor awarded him a high rank in the army. His singular passion was hunting, and he retained the superstitions of the pagan huntsmen. Yet, it was revealed to the Bishop of Auxerre that Germanus would be his successor; and he gave Germanus the tonsure almost by main force. Afterward, Germanus became another man, giving his lands to the Church and taking up a life of humble penance. At the time, the Pelagian heresy in England was usurping the founding truths of the Faith. St. Germanus and St. Lupus were hence chosen by the Pontiff to direct their apostolate in the conversion of the Angles. When they were near Verulam, they encountered and converted a group of heretics. St. Germanus credited this act to the intercession of Mama Mary, with St. Alban offering thanks at the latter's shrine. Once a brave soldier, St. Germanus won over the Picts and Scots to complete conversion in a bloodless victory. Crying Alleluia, the newly-baptized Britons, with St. Germanus' leadership, routed their enemies and spared them. No massacre or killing took place. Afterward, St. Germanus visited England a second time with St. Severus. St. Germanus passed away in 448 AD while interceding before the emperor on behalf of the people of Brittany. He continues interceding in heaven, where he hears prayers and reigns with Jesus forever.
