16th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 15:2-3a, 3b-4, 5)

He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.

One who walks blamelessly and does justice;
who thinks the truth in his heart
and slanders not with his tongue.

Who harms not his fellow man,
nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
by whom the reprobate is despised,
while he honors those who fear the Lord.

Who lends not his money at usury
and accepts no bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
shall never be disturbed.



Gospel Verse (cf Lk 8:15)

Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.
