FIRST READING

A reading of the book ofSirach (18:1-2.4-9a.10-13)

He who lives forevercreated the whole universe; the Lord alone is just. To whom has he given powerto describe his works, and who can search out his mighty deeds? Who can measurehis majestic power, or fully recount his mercies? No one can lessen, increase,or fathom the wonders of the Lord. When mortals finish, they are onlybeginning, and when they stop they are still bewildered. What are mortals? Whatare they worth? What is good in them, and what is evil? The number of theirdays seems great if it reaches a hundred years. Like a drop of water from thesea and a grain of sand, so are these few years among the days of eternity.That is why the Lord is patient with them and pours out his mercy on them. Hesees and understands that their death is wretched, and so he forgives them allthe more. Their compassion is for their neighbor, but the Lord’s compassionreaches all flesh.

The Word of God.

Thanks be to God.

 

PSALM

Psalm 135

R. Praise the Lord; his love endures forever.

Praise the God of gods;

for his mercy enduresforever;

Praise the Lord oflords;

for his mercy enduresforever;

who alone has done greatwonders,

for his mercy enduresforever. R.

 

Who skillfully made theheavens,

for his mercy enduresforever;

who spread the earthupon the waters,

for his mercy enduresforever;

who made the greatlights,

for his mercy enduresforever. R.

 

The sun to rule the day,

for his mercy enduresforever;

the moon and stars torule the night,

for his mercy enduresforever. R.

EPISTLE

Theletter of saint Paul to the Romans (8:18-25)

Brothers: I considerthat the sufferings of this present time are as nothing compared with the gloryto be revealed for us. For creation awaits with eager expectation therevelation of the children of God; for creation was made subject to futility,not of its own accord but because of the one who subjected it, in hope thatcreation itself would be set free from slavery to corruption and share in theglorious freedom of the children of God. We know that all creation is groaningin labor pains even until now; and not only that, but we ourselves, who havethe first fruits of the Spirit, we also groan within ourselves as we wait foradoption, the redemption of our bodies. For in hope we were saved. Now hopethat sees for itself is not hope. For who hopes for what one sees? But if wehope for what we do not see, we wait with endurance.

The Word of God.

Thanks be to God.

 

Hallelujah

Look at the birds in thesky, says the Lord;

they gather nothing intobarns,

yet your heavenly Fatherfeeds them.

Hallelujah

 

GOSPEL

The Lord be with you

And also with you

 

A reading of the holygospel according to Matthew (6:25-33)

Glory to you, Lord.

In that time, The Lord Jesus taught thecrowds and said: «I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat[or drink], or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than foodand the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sowor reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them.Are not you more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a singlemoment to your lifespan? Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the waythe wildflowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not evenSolomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them. If God so clothes thegrass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow,will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? So do not worryand say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we towear?' All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that youneed them all. But seek first the kingdom [of God] and his righteousness, andall these things will be given you besides.»

The word of the Lord.

Praise to you, LordJesus Christ.

 

AFTER THE GOSPEL

Lord, we have received your mercy within your temple. Your name, OGod, like your praise, reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand isfull of righteousness.

 

INTENTIONS

Whichwill be poured out for you and for many

forthe forgiveness of sins.
