Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

November 21, 2006
Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Wednesday 33rd Week in Ordinary Time - Year II

REVELATION 3:1-6, 14-22
I, John, heard the Lord saying to me: "To the angel of the Church in
Sardis, write this: "'The one who has the seven spirits of God and
the seven stars says this: "I know your works, that you have the
reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Be watchful and strengthen
what is left, which is going to die, for I have not found your works
complete in the sight of my God. Remember then how you accepted and
heard; keep it, and repent. If you are not watchful, I will come like a
thief, and you will never know at what hour I will come upon you.
However, you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their
garments; they will walk with me dressed in white, because they are
worthy. "'The victor will thus be dressed in white, and I will never
erase his name from the book of life but will acknowledge his name in
the presence of my Father and of his angels. "'Whoever has ears ought
to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'" "To the angel of the
Church in Laodicea, write this: "'The Amen, the faithful and true
witness, the source of God's creation, says this: "I know your works; I
know that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or
hot. So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit
you out of my mouth. For you say, 'I am rich and affluent and have no
need of anything,' and yet do not realize that you are wretched,
pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I advise you to buy from me gold
refined by fire so that you may be rich, and white garments to put on
so that your shameful nakedness may not be exposed, and buy ointment to
smear on your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove
and chastise. Be earnest, therefore, and repent. "'Behold, I stand at
the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, then I
will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me. I will give the
victor the right to sit with me on my throne, as I myself first won the
victory and sit with my Father on his throne. "'Whoever has ears
ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'"

LUKE 19:1-10
At that time Jesus came to Jericho and intended to pass through the
town. Now a man there named Zacchaeus, who was a chief tax collector
and also a wealthy man, was seeking to see who Jesus was; but he could
not see him because of the crowd, for he was short in stature. So he
ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus, who was
about to pass that way. When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and
said, "Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your
house." And he came down quickly and received him with joy. When they
saw this, they began to grumble, saying, "He has gone to stay at the
house of a sinner." But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord,
"Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor, and if
I have extorted anything from anyone I shall repay it four times over."
And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house because
this man too is a descendant of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to
seek and to save what was lost."
