First Reading – Sirach 35:15BC-17, 20-22AB

15BC The LORD is a God of justice, who knows no favorites.

16 Though not unduly partial toward the weak, yet he hears the cry of the oppressed.

17 The Lord is not deaf to the wail of the orphan, nor to the widow when she pours out her complaint.

20 The one who serves God willingly is heard; his petition reaches the heavens.

21 The prayer of the lowly pierces the clouds; it does not rest till it reaches its goal, nor will it withdraw till the Most High responds,

Second Reading – 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18

Beloved:

6 I am already being poured out like a libation, and the time of my departure is at hand.

7 I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.

8 From now on the crown of righteousness awaits me, which the Lord, the just judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me, but to all who have longed for his appearance.

16 At my first defense no one appeared on my behalf, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them!

17 But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength, so that through me the proclamation might be completed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.

18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat and will bring me safe to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Alleluia – 2 Corinthians 5:19

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

19 God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ,

and entrusting to us the message of salvation.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Reading for October 26 2025 – Luke 18:9-14

9 Jesus addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else.

10 “Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.

11 The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity — greedy, dishonest, adulterous — or even like this tax collector.

12 I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’

13 But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’

14 I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
