First Reading: Sirach 27: 4-7
When a sieve is shaken, the refuse appears; so do a person’s faults when he speaks. (4)
These are precious words for us today, even as we hear different voices around us! Our sieves are shaken today and what are the words that we speak? This scripture is a framework not only for us to recognize others, but to correct ourselves too! May God put a guard on our lips. Amen!
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 92: 2-3, 13-14, 15-16
It is good to declare the Lord’s steadfast love in the morning, and his faithfulness by night. (2)

Therefore, my beloved, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, because you know that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. (58)
When we work for the Lord, we do not work in vain. Therefore we should remind ourselves, for example, the bad boss; isn’t our provider! Our Provider is God Almighty himself! Amen!
Gospel: Luke 6: 39-45
You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye. (42)
If only we could take a really good, long look at our own selves; we would get busy improving ourselves daily! May we concentrate on producing good fruit!
