  • First Reading: Zephaniah 3:1-2, 9-13

    1 Woe to the provoking, and redeemed city, the dove.
    2 She hath not hearkened to the voice, neither hath she received discipline: she hath not trusted in the Lord, she drew not near to her God.
    9 Because then I will restore to the people a chosen lip, that all may call upon the name of the Lord, and may serve him with one shoulder.
    10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, shall my suppliants the children of my dispersed people bring me an offering.
    11 In that day thou shalt not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee thy proud boasters, and thou shalt no more be lifted up because of my holy mountain.
    12 And I will leave in the midst of thee a poor and needy people: and they shall hope in the name of the Lord.
    13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed, and shall lie down, and there shall be none to make them afraid.

  • Psalm: Psalms 33:2-3,6-7,17-18,19,23

    2 I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall be always in my mouth.
    3 In the Lord shall my soul be praised: let the meek hear and rejoice.
    6 Come ye to him and be enlightened: and your faces shall not be confounded.
    7 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him: and saved him out of all his troubles.
    17 But the countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil things: to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
    18 The just cried, and the Lord heard them: and delivered them out of all their troubles.
    19 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit.
    23 The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall offend.

  • Gospel: Matthew 21:28-32

    28 But what think you? A certain man had two sons; and coming to the first, he said: Son, go work today in my vineyard.
    29 And he answering, said: I will not. But afterwards, being moved with repentance, he went.
    30 And coming to the other, he said in like manner. And he answering, said: I go, Sir; and he went not.
    31 Which of the two did the father' s will? They say to him: The first. Jesus saith to them: Amen I say to you, that the publicans and the harlots shall go into the kingdom of God before you.
    32 For John came to you in the way of justice, and you did not believe him. But the publicans and the harlots believed him: but you, seeing it, did not even afterwards repent, that you might believe him.
