Liturgical day: Monday 25th in Ordinary Time

Gospel text (Lk 8,16-18): Jesus said to his disciples, «No one, after lighting a lamp covers it with a bowl (...). Whoever produces will be given more, but from those who do not produce, even what they seem to have will be taken away from them». Jesus said to his disciples, «No one, after lighting a lamp covers it with a bowl or puts it under the bed; rather he puts it on a lamp-stand so that people coming in may see the light. In the same way, there is nothing hidden that shall not be uncovered; nothing kept secret that shall not be known clearly. Now, take care how well you listen, for whoever produces will be given more, but from those who do not produce, even what they seem to have will be taken away from them».
