"We believe that the venerable and ancient tradition of the Eastern Churches
is an integral part of the heritage of Christ's Church . . .
the first need for Catholics is to be familiar with that tradition..."
- Pope John Paul II, Orientale Lumen, "Light of the East" (1995)
"That the Eastern Catholic Churches and their
venerable traditions may be known and esteemed as a spiritual treasure for the whole Church."
- Pope Benedict XVI, Prayer Intention for November 2011

Epistle: Ephesians 5:9-19
For the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true,
and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
For it is a shame even to speak of the things that they do in secret;
but when anything is exposed by the light it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light.
Therefore it is said, "Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light."
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,
making the most of the time, because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit,
addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart.
Gospel: Luke 18:18-27
And a ruler asked Jesus, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.
You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.'"
And he said, "All these I have observed from my youth."
And when Jesus heard it, he said to him, "One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."
But when he heard this he became sad, for he was very rich.
Jesus looking at him said, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!
For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?"
But he said, "What is impossible with men is possible with God."

Epistle: Ephesians 6:10-17
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against
the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts
of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth,
and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the
equipment of the gospel of peace; besides all these, taking the shield of faith, with
which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Gospel: Luke 17:12-19
And as Jesus entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance
and lifted up their voices and said, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us."
When he saw them he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went they
were cleansed. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with
a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan.
Then said Jesus, "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and
give praise to God except this foreigner?"
And he said to him, "Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well."
