==============================================
A reading from the book of Leviticus
Lv 25: 1. 8-17
==============================================

[1] The LORD said to Moses on Mount Sinai,
[8] "And you shall count seven weeks of years, seven times seven years, so that the time of the seven weeks of years shall be to you forty-nine years.
[9] Then you shall send abroad the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of atonement you shall send abroad the trumpet throughout all your land.
[10] And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants; it shall be a jubilee for you, when each of you shall return to his property and each of you shall return to his family.
[11] A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be to you; in it you shall neither sow, nor reap what grows of itself, nor gather the grapes from the undressed vines.
[12] For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat what it yields out of the field.
[13] "In this year of jubilee each of you shall return to his property.
[14] And if you sell to your neighbor or buy from your neighbor, you shall not wrong one another.
[15] According to the number of years after the jubilee, you shall buy from your neighbor, and according to the number of years for crops he shall sell to you.
[16] If the years are many you shall increase the price, and if the years are few you shall diminish the price, for it is the number of the crops that he is selling to you.
[17] You shall not wrong one another, but you shall fear your God; for I am the LORD your God.

The Word of the Lord

==============================================
From Psalm 67
Ps 67: 2-3. 5. 7-8
==============================================

Let the peoples praise thee, O God

[2] May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face to shine upon us, [Selah]
[3] that thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving power among all nations.

Let the peoples praise thee, O God

[5] Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for thou dost judge the peoples with equity
and guide the nations upon earth. [Selah]

Let the peoples praise thee, O God

[7] The earth has yielded its increase;
God, our God, has blessed us.
[8] God has blessed us;
let all the ends of the earth fear him!

Let the peoples praise thee, O God


==============================================
A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew
Mt 14: 1-12
==============================================

[1] Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of Jesus;
[2] and he said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist, he has been raised from the dead; that is why these powers are at work in him."
[3] For Herod had seized John and bound him and put him in prison, for the sake of Hero'di-as, his brother Philip's wife;
[4] because John said to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her."
[5] And though he wanted to put him to death, he feared the people, because they held him to be a prophet.
[6] But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Hero'di-as danced before the company, and pleased Herod,
[7] so that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask.
[8] Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter."
[9] And the king was sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given;
[10] he sent and had John beheaded in the prison,
[11] and his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother.
[12] And his disciples came and took the body and buried it; and they went and told Jesus.

==============================================
A reading from the book of Leviticus
Lv 23: 1. 4-11. 15-16. 27. 34b-37
==============================================

[1] The LORD said to Moses,
[4] "These are the appointed feasts of the LORD, the holy convocations, which you shall proclaim at the time appointed for them.
[5] In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, is the LORD's passover.
[6] And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread to the LORD; seven days you shall eat unleavened bread.
[7] On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work.
[8] But you shall present an offering by fire to the LORD seven days; on the seventh day is a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work."
[9] And the LORD said to Moses,
[10] "Say to the people of Israel, When you come into the land which I give you and reap its harvest, you shall bring the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest;
[11] and he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, that you may find acceptance; on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.
[15] "And you shall count from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven full weeks shall they be,
[16] counting fifty days to the morrow after the seventh sabbath; then you shall present a cereal offering of new grain to the LORD.
[27] "On the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be for you a time of holy convocation, and you shall afflict yourselves and present an offering by fire to the LORD.
[34] "Say to the people of Israel, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month and for seven days is the feast of booths to the LORD.
[35] On the first day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work.
[36] Seven days you shall present offerings by fire to the LORD; on the eighth day you shall hold a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to the LORD; it is a solemn assembly; you shall do no laborious work.
[37] "These are the appointed feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim as times of holy convocation, for presenting to the LORD offerings by fire, burnt offerings and cereal offerings, sacrifices and drink offerings, each on its proper day.

The Word of the Lord

==============================================
From Psalm 81
Ps 81: 3-4. 5-6. 10-11ab
==============================================

Sing aloud to God our strength

[3] Raise a song, sound the timbrel,
the sweet lyre with the harp.
[4] Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
at the full moon, on our feast day.

Sing aloud to God our strength

[5] For it is a statute for Israel,
an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
[6] He made it a decree in Joseph,
when he went out over the land of Egypt.
I hear a voice I had not known:

Sing aloud to God our strength

[10] There shall be no strange god among you;
you shall not bow down to a foreign god.
[11] I am the LORD your God,
who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.

Sing aloud to God our strength


==============================================
A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew
Mt 13: 54-58
==============================================

[54] Coming to his own country Jesus taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works?
[55] Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
[56] And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?"
[57] And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."
[58] And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.

==============================================
A reading from the book of Exodus
Ex 40: 16-21. 34-38
==============================================

[16] Thus did Moses; according to all that the LORD commanded him, so he did.
[17] And in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, the tabernacle was erected.
[18] Moses erected the tabernacle; he laid its bases, and set up its frames, and put in its poles, and raised up its pillars;
[19] and he spread the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent over it, as the LORD had commanded Moses.
[20] And he took the testimony and put it into the ark, and put the poles on the ark, and set the mercy seat above on the ark;
[21] and he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the screen, and screened the ark of the testimony; as the LORD had commanded Moses.
[34] Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
[35] And Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting, because the cloud abode upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
[36] Throughout all their journeys, whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the people of Israel would go onward;
[37] but if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not go onward till the day that it was taken up.
[38] For throughout all their journeys the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel.

The Word of the Lord

==============================================
From Psalm 84
Ps 84: 3. 4. 5-6a and 8a. 11
==============================================

How lovely is thy dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!

[3] My soul longs, yea, faints
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God.

How lovely is thy dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!

[4] Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at thy altars, O LORD of hosts,
my King and my God.

How lovely is thy dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!

[5] Blessed are those who dwell in thy house,
ever singing thy praise! [Selah]
[6] Blessed are the men whose strength is in thee,
[8] They go from strength to strength;

How lovely is thy dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!

[11] For a day in thy courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

How lovely is thy dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!


==============================================
A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew
Mt 13: 47-53
==============================================

Jesus said to his disciples:
[47] "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind;
[48] when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad.
[49] So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous,
[50] and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.
[51] "Have you understood all this?" They said to him, "Yes."
[52] And he said to them, "Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old."
[53] And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there.

==============================================
A reading from the book of Exodus
Ex 34: 29-35
==============================================

[29] When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tables of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God.
[30] And when Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
[31] But Moses called to them; and Aaron and all the leaders of the congregation returned to him, and Moses talked with them.
[32] And afterward all the people of Israel came near, and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in Mount Sinai.
[33] And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil on his face;
[34] but whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and when he came out, and told the people of Israel what he was commanded,
[35] the people of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone; and Moses would put the veil upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

[6] Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
Samuel also was among those who called on his name.
They cried to the LORD, and he answered them.

The LORD our God is holy

[7] He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
they kept his testimonies,
and the statutes that he gave them.

The LORD our God is holy

[9] Extol the LORD our God,
and worship at his holy mountain;
for the LORD our God is holy!

The LORD our God is holy

[19] Many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother (Lazarus, who had died).
[20] When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary sat in the house.
[21] Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
[22] And even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you."
[23] Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."
[24] Martha said to him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
[25] Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,
[26] and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?"
[27] She said to him, "Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world."

2015 Jul 28 Tue: 17th week in Ordinary Time

==============================================
A reading from the book of Exodus
Ex 33: 7-11; 34: 5b-9. 28
==============================================

[7] Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, far off from the camp; and he called it the tent of meeting. And every one who sought the LORD would go out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp.
[8] Whenever Moses went out to the tent, all the people rose up, and every man stood at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he had gone into the tent.
[9] When Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the door of the tent, and the LORD would speak with Moses.
[10] And when all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the door of the tent, all the people would rise up and worship, every man at his tent door.
[11] Thus the LORD used to speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. When Moses turned again into the camp, his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tent.
[5] And the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
[6] The LORD passed before him, and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,
[7] keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children, to the third and the fourth generation."
[8] And Moses made haste to bow his head toward the earth, and worshiped.
[9] And he said, "If now I have found favor in thy sight, O Lord, let the Lord, I pray thee, go in the midst of us, although it is a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thy inheritance."
[28] And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

The Word of the Lord


==============================================
From Psalm 103
Ps 103:6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13
==============================================

The LORD is merciful and gracious

[6] The LORD works vindication
and justice for all who are oppressed.
[7] He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.

The LORD is merciful and gracious

[8] The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
[9] He will not always chide,
nor will he keep his anger for ever.

The LORD is merciful and gracious

[10] He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor requite us according to our iniquities.
[11] For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

The LORD is merciful and gracious

[12] as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
[13] As a father pities his children,
so the LORD pities those who fear him.

The LORD is merciful and gracious

==============================================
A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew
Mt 13: 36-43
==============================================

[36] Jesus left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field."
[37] He answered, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of man;
[38] the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one,
[39] and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels.
[40] Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age.
[41] The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers,
[42] and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.
[43] Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

2015 Jul 27 Mon: 17th week in Ordinary Time

==============================================
A reading from the book of Exodus
Ex 32: 15-24. 30-34
==============================================

[15] Moses turned, and went down from the mountain with the two tables of the testimony in his hands, tables that were written on both sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.
[16] And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.
[17] When Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, "There is a noise of war in the camp."
[18] But he said, "It is not the sound of shouting for victory, or the sound of the cry of defeat, but the sound of singing that I hear."
[19] And as soon as he came near the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, Moses' anger burned hot, and he threw the tables out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain.
[20] And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it with fire, and ground it to powder, and scattered it upon the water, and made the people of Israel drink it.
[21] And Moses said to Aaron, "What did this people do to you that you have brought a great sin upon them?"
[22] And Aaron said, "Let not the anger of my lord burn hot; you know the people, that they are set on evil.
[23] For they said to me, `Make us gods, who shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.'
[24] And I said to them, `Let any who have gold take it off'; so they gave it to me, and I threw it into the fire, and there came out this calf."
[30] On the morrow Moses said to the people, "You have sinned a great sin. And now I will go up to the LORD; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin."
[31] So Moses returned to the LORD and said, "Alas, this people have sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold.
[32] But now, if thou wilt forgive their sin -- and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written."
[33] But the LORD said to Moses, "Whoever has sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
[34] But now go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you; behold, my angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit, I will visit their sin upon them."

The Word of the Lord

==============================================
From Psalm 106
Ps 106: 19-20. 21-22. 23
==============================================

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good

[19] They made a calf in Horeb
and worshiped a molten image.
[20] They exchanged the glory of God
for the image of an ox that eats grass.

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good

[21] They forgot God, their Savior,
who had done great things in Egypt,
[22] wondrous works in the land of Ham,
and terrible things by the Red Sea.

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good

[23] Therefore he said he would destroy them --
had not Moses, his chosen one,
stood in the breach before him,
to turn away his wrath from destroying them.

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good


==============================================
A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew
Mt 13: 31-35
==============================================

[31] Another parable Jesus put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field;
[32] it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches."
[33] He told them another parable. "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened."
[34] All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable.
[35] This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: "I will open my mouth in parables,
I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the
world."

==============================================

[42] A man came from Ba'al-shal'ishah, bringing Eli'sha, the man of God, bread of the first fruits, twenty loaves of barley, and fresh ears of grain in his sack. And Eli'sha said, "Give to the men, that they may eat."
[43] But his servant said, "How am I to set this before a hundred men?" So he repeated, "Give them to the men, that they may eat, for thus says the LORD, `They shall eat and have some left.'"
[44] So he set it before them. And they ate, and had some left, according to the word of the LORD.

==============================================
From Psalm 145
Ps 145: 10-11. 15-16. 17-18

The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs

and thou givest them their food in due season.
[16] Thou openest thy hand,
thou satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs
 
[17] The LORD is just in all his ways,
and kind in all his doings.
[18] The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
to all who call upon him in truth.

The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs

A reading from the letter to the Ephesians
Eph 4: 1-6
===================================================
Brothers and sisters:
[1] I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called,
[2] with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love,
[3] eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
[4] There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call,
[5] one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
[6] one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all.

The Word of the Lord

==============================================
A reading from the holy gospel according to John
Jn 6: 1-15
==============================================

[1] Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiber'i-as.
[2] And a multitude followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on those who were diseased.
[3] Jesus went up on the mountain, and there sat down with his disciples.
[4] Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand.
[5] Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a multitude was coming to him, Jesus said to Philip, "How are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?"
[6] This he said to test him, for he himself knew what he would do.
[7] Philip answered him, "Two hundred denarii would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little."
[8] One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him,
[9] "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are they among so many?"
[10] Jesus said, "Make the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place; so the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
[11] Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted.
[12] And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, "Gather up the fragments left over, that nothing may be lost."
[13] So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten.
[14] When the people saw the sign which he had done, they said, "This is indeed the prophet who is to come into the world!"
[15] Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.

A Reading from the Book of Genesis GN 18:1-15

And the LORD appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat at the door of his tent in the heat of the day.
[2] He lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, three men stood in front of him.
When he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the earth,
[3] and said, "My lord, if I have found favor in your sight, do not pass by your servant.

[4] Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree,
[5] while I fetch a morsel of bread, that you may refresh yourselves, and after that you may pass on --
since you have come to your servant." So they said, "Do as you have said."
[6] And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, "Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes."

[7] And Abraham ran to the herd, and took a calf, tender and good, and gave it to the servant, who hastened to prepare it.
[8] Then he took curds, and milk, and the calf which he had prepared, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree while they ate.
They said to him, "Where is Sarah your wife?" And he said, "She is in the tent."

[10] The LORD said, "I will surely return to you in the spring, and Sarah your wife shall have a son."
And Sarah was listening at the tent door behind him.
[11] Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in age; it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
[12] So Sarah laughed to herself, saying, "After I have grown old,
and my husband is old, shall I have pleasure?"

[13] The LORD said to Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh, and say, `Shall I indeed bear a child, now that I am old?'
[14] Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, in the spring, and Sarah shall have a son."
[15] But Sarah denied, saying, "I did not laugh"; for she was afraid. He said, "No, but you did laugh."

The Word of the Lord.

R. The Lord has remembered his mercy.

"My soul magnifies the Lord,
[47] and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,

For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;
[49] for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.

R. The Lord has remembered his mercy.

And his mercy is on those who fear him
from generation to generation.

in remembrance of his mercy,
[55] as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his posterity for ever."

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to  Matthew    MT 8:5-17

As he entered Caper'na-um, a centurion came forward to him, beseeching him
[6] and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, in terrible distress."
[7] And he said to him, "I will come and heal him."
[8] But the centurion answered him, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof;
but only say the word, and my servant will be healed.

[9] For I am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, `Go,' and he goes, and to another,
`Come,' and he comes, and to my slave, `Do this,' and he does it."
[10] When Jesus heard him, he marveled, and said to those who followed him,
"Truly, I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.

[11] I tell you, many will come from east and west and sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob in the kingdom of heaven,
[12] while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness;
there men will weep and gnash their teeth."
[13] And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; be it done for you as you have believed."
And the servant was healed at that very moment.
[14]

And when Jesus entered Peter's house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever;
[15] he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and served him.
[16] That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons;
and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick.
[17] This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, "He took our infirmities and bore our diseases."

A Reading from the Book of Genesis GN 17:1, 9-10, 15-22

[1] When Abram was ninety-nine years old the LORD appeared to Abram, and said to him, "I am God Almighty;
walk before me, and be blameless.

And God said to Abraham, "As for you, you shall keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.
[10] This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your descendants after you:
Every male among you shall be circumcised.

And God said to Abraham, "As for Sar'ai your wife, you shall not call her name Sar'ai, but Sarah shall be her name.

[16] I will bless her, and moreover I will give you a son by her; I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations;
kings of peoples shall come from her."
[17] Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said to himself,
"Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?"
[18] And Abraham said to God, "O that Ish'mael might live in thy sight!"
[19] God said, "No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac.
I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
[20] As for Ish'mael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him and make him fruitful and multiply him exceedingly;
he shall be the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
[21] But I will establish my covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this season next year."
[22]
When he had finished talking with him, God went up from Abraham.

The Word of the Lord.
============================

From Psalm 128 PS 128:1-2, 3, 4-5

R. See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

1] Blessed is every one who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
[2] You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;
you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.

R. See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

[3] Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.

who fears the LORD.
[5] The LORD bless you from Zion!
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life!

R. See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew   MT 8:1-4
When Jesus came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him;
[2] and behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying,
"Lord, if you will, you can make me clean."
[3] And he stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, "I will; be clean.
" And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

[4] And Jesus said to him, "See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest,
and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a proof to the people."

A Reading from the Book of Genesis   GN 16:1-12, 15-16

1]
Now Sar'ai, Abram's wife, bore him no children. She had an Egyptian maid whose name was Hagar;


[2] and Sar'ai said to Abram, "Behold now, the LORD has prevented me from bearing children;
go in to my maid; it may be that I shall obtain children by her." And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sar'ai.
[3] So, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, Sar'ai, Abram's wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her maid,
and gave her to Abram her husband as a wife.
[4] And he went in to Hagar, and she conceived; and when she saw that she had conceived, she looked with contempt on her mistress.
[5] And Sar'ai said to Abram, "May the wrong done to me be on you! I gave my maid to your embrace,
and when she saw that she had conceived, she looked on me with contempt. May the LORD judge between you and me!"
[6] But Abram said to Sar'ai, "Behold, your maid is in your power; do to her as you please."
Then Sar'ai dealt harshly with her, and she fled from her.
[7]
The angel of the LORD found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, the spring on the way to Shur.

[8] And he said, "Hagar, maid of Sar'ai, where have you come from and where are you going?"
She said, "I am fleeing from my mistress Sar'ai."
[9] The angel of the LORD said to her, "Return to your mistress, and submit to her."
[10] The angel of the LORD also said to her, "I will so greatly multiply your descendants that
they cannot be numbered for multitude."
[11] And the angel of the LORD said to her, "Behold, you are with child, and shall bear a son;
you shall call his name Ish'mael; because the LORD has given heed to your affliction.
[12] He shall be a wild ass of a man, his hand against every man and every man's hand against him;
and he shall dwell over against all his kinsmen."

[15]And Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ish'mael.
[16] Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ish'mael to Abram.

The Word of the Lord.

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to  Matthew   MT 7:21-29

Jesus said to his Disciples:
"Not every one who says to me, `Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

[22] On that day many will say to me, `Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name,
and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?'
[23] And then will I declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.'
[24]
"Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock;


[25] and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house,
but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
[26] And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man
who built his house upon the sand;
[27] and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house,
and it fell; and great was the fall of it."
[28]
And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching,
[29] for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.

Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist

A Reading from the Prophet Isaiah   IS 49:1-6

Listen to me, O coastlands,

and hearken, you peoples from afar.
The LORD called me from the womb,
from the body of my mother he named my name.
[2] He made my mouth like a sharp sword,
in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
he made me a polished arrow,
in his quiver he hid me away.
[3] And he said to me, "You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will be glorified."
[4] But I said, "I have labored in vain,
I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;
yet surely my right is with the LORD,
and my recompense with my God."
[5] And now the LORD says,
who formed me from the womb to be his servant,
to bring Jacob back to him,
and that Israel might be gathered to him,
for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD,
and my God has become my strength --
[6] he says:
"It is too light a thing that you should be my servant
to raise up the tribes of Jacob
and to restore the preserved of Israel;
I will give you as a light to the nations,
that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth."

The Word of the Lord.
============================

From Psalm 139    PS 139:1B-3, 13-14AB, 14C-15

[2] Thou knowest when I sit down and when I rise up;
thou discernest my thoughts from afar.
[3] Thou searchest out my path and my lying down,
and art acquainted with all my ways.

R. I praise you for I am wonderfully made.

For thou didst form my inward parts,
thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb.
[14] I praise thee, for thou art fearful and wonderful.
Wonderful are thy works!

R. I praise you for I am wonderfully made.

Thou knowest me right well;
[15] my frame was not hidden from thee,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately wrought in the depths of the earth.

R. I praise you for I am wonderfully made.

A Reading from Acts of the Apostles    Acts 13:22-26

In those days, Paul said:
God raised up David to be their king; of whom he testified and said,
`I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.'
[23] Of this man's posterity God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, as he promised.
[24] Before his coming John had preached a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
[25] And as John was finishing his course, he said, `What do you suppose that I am? I am not he.
No, but after me one is coming, the sandals of whose feet I am not worthy to untie.'
[26]
"Brethren, sons of the family of Abraham, and those among you that fear God, to us has been sent the message of this salvation.

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to  Luke     LK 1:57-66, 80

Now the time came for Elizabeth to be delivered, and she gave birth to a son.

[58] And her neighbors and kinsfolk heard that the Lord had shown great mercy to her, and they rejoiced with her.
[59] And on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they would have named him Zechari'ah after his father,
[60] but his mother said, "Not so; he shall be called John."
[61] And they said to her, "None of your kindred is called by this name."
[62] And they made signs to his father, inquiring what he would have him called.
[63] And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote, "His name is John." And they all marveled.
[64] And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, blessing God.
[65] And fear came on all their neighbors. And all these things were talked about through all the hill country of Judea;
[66] and all who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, "What then will this child be?"
For the hand of the Lord was with him.


And the child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the wilderness till the day of his manifestation to Israel.

A Reading from the Book of Genesis GN 13:2, 5-18

Now Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
And Lot, who went with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents,
[6] so that the land could not support both of them dwelling together;
for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together,
[7] and there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram's cattle and the herdsmen of Lot's cattle.
At that time the Canaanites and the Per'izzites dwelt in the land.
[8]
Then Abram said to Lot, "Let there be no strife between you and me, a
nd between your herdsmen and my herdsmen; for we are kinsmen.


[9] Is not the whole land before you? Separate yourself from me. If you take the left hand,
then I will go to the right; or if you take the right hand, then I will go to the left."
[10] And Lot lifted up his eyes, and saw that the Jordan valley was well watered everywhere
like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of Zo'ar;
this was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomor'rah.
[11] So Lot chose for himself all the Jordan valley, and Lot journeyed east; thus they separated from each other.
[12] Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, while Lot dwelt among the cities of the valley
and moved his tent as far as Sodom.
[13] Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.
[14]
The LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, "Lift up your eyes, and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward;


[15] for all the land which you see I will give to you and to your descendants for ever.
[16] I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if one can count the dust of the earth,
your descendants also can be counted.
[17] Arise, walk through the length and the breadth of the land, for I will give it to you."
[18] So Abram moved his tent, and came and dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, which are at Hebron;
and there he built an altar to the LORD.

The Word of the Lord.
============================

From Psalm 15  PS 15:2-3A, 3BC-4AB, 5

R. He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.

He who walks blamelessly, and does what is right,
and speaks truth from his heart;
[3] who does not slander with his tongue,

R. He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.

He who does no evil to his friend,
nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
[4] in whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
but who honors those who fear the LORD;

R. He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.

Who does not put out his money at interest,
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.

R. He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.

A Reading from The Holy Gospel according to Matthew    MT 7:6, 12-14

Jesus said to his disciples:
Do not give dogs what is holy; and do not throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under foot and turn to attack you.

So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.
"Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction,
and those who enter by it are many.

[14] For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

A Reading from the Book of Genesis Gen 12:1-9

Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you.


[2] And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.
[3] I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse; and by you all the families of the earth shall bless themselves."
[4]
So Abram went, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.


[5] And Abram took Sar'ai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions which they had gathered,
and the persons that they had gotten in Haran; and they set forth to go to the land of Canaan.
When they had come to the land of Canaan,
[6] Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land.

[7] Then the LORD appeared to Abram, and said, "To your descendants I will give this land."
So he built there an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.
[8] Thence he removed to the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent,
with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the LORD and called on the name of the LORD.
[9] And Abram journeyed on, still going toward the Negeb.

[13] The LORD looks down from heaven,
he sees all the sons of men;

R. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.

[18] Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
[19] that he may deliver their soul from death,
and keep them alive in famine.

R. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.

[20] Our soul waits for the LORD;

even as we hope in thee.

R. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.

Jesus said to his disciples:

Judge not, that you be not judged.
[2] For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.
[3] Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye,
but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
[4] Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye?
[5] You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye,
and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

A Reading from the Book of Job Jb 38:1, 8-11

Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind:
who shut in the sea with doors,
 when it burst forth from the womb;
when I made clouds its garment,
 and thick darkness its swaddling band,
 and prescribed bounds for it,
 and set bars and doors,
 and said, `Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
 and here shall your proud waves be stayed'?


The Word of the Lord.
============================

From Psalm 107     Ps 107:23-24, 25-26, 28-29, 30-31

R: Give thanks to the Lord, his love is everlasting.

Some went down to the sea in ships,
 doing business on the great waters;
they saw the deeds of the LORD,
his wondrous works in the deep.

R: Give thanks to the Lord, his love is everlasting.

For he commanded, and raised the stormy wind,
 which lifted up the waves of the sea.
They mounted up to heaven, they went down to the depths;
 their courage melted away in their evil plight;

R: Give thanks to the Lord, his love is everlasting.

Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
 and he delivered them from their distress;
he made the storm be still,
 and the waves of the sea were hushed.

R: Give thanks to the Lord, his love is everlasting.

Then they were glad because they had quiet,
 and he brought them to their desired haven.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
 for his wonderful works to the sons of men!

==============================

A Reading from Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians    2 Cor 5:14-17

For the love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died.
[15] And he died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves
but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
[16]
From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view;
even though we once regarded Christ from a human point of view, we regard him thus no longer.

[17] Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.


The Word of the Lord.
==============================

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark   Mk 4:35-41

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side."

[36] And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him.
[37] And a great storm of wind arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already filling.
[38] But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him and said to him, "Teacher, do you not care if we perish?"
[39] And he awoke and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
[40] He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?"
[41] And they were filled with awe, and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?"
