A reading from the prophet Amos
You who give yourself to licentiousness and revelry will be exiled.
The almighty Lord says this: Woe to those ensconced so snugly in Zion and to those who feel so
safe on the mountain of Samaria. Lying on ivory beds and sprawling on their divans, they dine
on lambs from the flock, and stall-fattened veal; they bawl to the sound of the harp, they invent
new instruments of music like David, they drink wine by the bowlful, and use the finest oil for
anointing themselves, but about the ruin of Joseph they do not care at all. That is why they will
be the first to be exiled; the sprawlers‟ revelry is over.
A reading from the first letter of St Paul to Timothy
Obey the commandments until the coming of the Lord.
As a man dedicated to God, you must aim to be saintly and religious, filled with faith and love,
patient and gentle. Fight the good fight of the faith and win for yourself the eternal life to which
you were called when you made your profession and spoke up for the truth in front of many wit-
nesses. Now, before God the source of all life and before Jesus Christ, who spoke up as a wit-
ness for the truth in front of Pontius Pilate, I put to you the duty of doing all that you have been
told, with no faults or failures, until the Appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who at the due time
will be revealed by God, the blessed and only Ruler of all, the King of kings and the Lord of
lords, who alone is immortal, whose home is in inaccessible light, whom no man has seen and
no man is able to see: to him be honour and everlasting power. Amen.

GOSPEL LK 16:19-31
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke
During your life good things came your way just as bad things came the way of Laza-
rus. Now he is being comforted while you are in agony.
Jesus said to the Pharisees: „There was a rich man who used to dress in purple and
fine linen and feast magnificently every day. And at his gate there lay a poor man
called Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to fill himself with the scraps that fell
from the rich man‟s table. Dogs even came and licked his sores. Now the poor man
died and was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also
died and was buried.
„In his torment in Hades he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off with Lazarus in
his bosom. So he cried out, “Father Abraham, pity me and send Lazarus to dip the tip
of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in agony in these flames.” “My son,”
Abraham replied “remember that during your life good things come your way, just as
bad things came the way of Lazarus. Now he is being comforted here while you are in
agony. But that is not all: between us and you a great gulf has been fixed, to stop any-
one, if he wanted to, crossing from our side to yours, and to stop any crossing from
your side to ours.”
„The rich man replied, “Father, I beg you then to send Lazarus to my father‟s house,
since I have five brothers, to give them warning, so that they do not come to this place
of torment too.” “They have Moses and the prophets,” said Abraham “let them listen to
them.” “Ah no, father Abraham,” said the rich man “but if someone comes to them from
the dead, they will repent.” Then Abraham said to him, “If they will not listen either to
Moses or to the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone should rise from                  Bulletin – 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time   September 26, 2010
