Twenty-Fourth Week After Pentecost

November 23, 2014
Twenty-Fourth Sunday After Pentecost
Festive Day of the Entrance of the Mother of God into the Temple

Luke 12:16-21 - [Jesus] told them a parable, saying, "The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; and he thought to himself, `What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?' And he said, `I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.' But God said to him, `Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?' So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." (RSV – Gospel for the Ninth Sunday of Luke)
