  • First Reading: Isaiah 56:1-3a, 6-8

    1 Thus saith the Lord: Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my justice to be revealed.
    2 Blessed is the man that doth this, and the son of man that shall lay hold on this: that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, that keepeth his hands from doing any evil.
    3 a And let not the son of the stranger, that adhereth to the Lord, speak, saying: The Lord will divide and separate me from his people. And let not the eunuch say: Behold I am a dry tree.
    6 And the children of the stranger that adhere to the Lord, to worship him, and to love his name, to be his servants: every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and that holdeth fast my covenant:
    7 I will bring them into my holy mount, and will make them joyful in my house of prayer: their holocausts, and their victims shall please me upon my altar: for my house shall be called the house of prayer, for all nations.
    8 The Lord God, who gathereth the scattered of Israel, saith: I will still gather unto him his congregation.

  • Psalm: Psalms 66:2-3,5,7-8

    2 May God have mercy on us, and bless us: may he cause the light of his countenance to shine upon us, and may he have mercy on us.
    3 That we may know thy way upon earth: thy salvation in all nations.
    5 Let the nations be glad and rejoice: for thou judgest the people with justice, and directest the nations upon earth.
    7 The earth hath yielded her fruit. May God, our God bless us,
    8 May God bless us: and all the ends of the earth fear him.

  • Gospel: John 5:33-36

    33 You sent to John, and he gave testimony to the truth.
    34 But I receive not testimony from man: but I say these things, that you may be saved.
    35 He was a burning and a shining light: and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light.
    36 But I have a greater testimony than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to perfect; the works themselves, which I do, give testimony of me, that the Father hath sent me.
