  • First Reading: Isaiah 30:19-21, 23-26

    19 For the people of Sion shall dwell in Jerusalem: weeping thou shalt not weep, he will surely have pity on thee: at the voice of thy cry, as soon as he shall hear, he will answer thee.
    20 And the Lord will give you spare bread, and short water: and will not cause thy teacher to flee away from thee any more, and thy eyes shall see thy teacher.
    21 And thy ears shall hear the word of one admonishing thee behind thy back: This is the way, walk ye in it: and go not aside neither to the right hand, nor to the left.
    23 And rain shall be given to thy seed, wheresoever thou shalt sow in the land: and the bread of the corn of the land shall be most plentiful, and fat. The lamb in that day shall feed at large in thy possession:
    24 And thy oxen, and the ass colts that till the ground, shall eat mingled provender as it was winnowed in the floor.
    25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every elevated hill rivers of running waters in the day of the slaughter of many, when the tower shall fall.
    26 And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days: in the day when the Lord shall bind up the wound of his people, and shall heal the stroke of their wound.

  • Psalm: Psalms 146:1-2,3-4,5-6

    1 Praise ye the Lord, because psalm is good: to our God be joyful and comely praise.
    2 The Lord buildeth up Jerusalem: he will gather together the dispersed of Israel.
    3 Who healeth the broken of heart, and bindeth up their bruises.
    4 Who telleth the number of the stars: and calleth them all by their names.
    5 Great is our Lord, and great is his power: and of his wisdom there is no number.
    6 The Lord lifteth up the meek, and bringeth the wicked down even to the ground.

  • Gospel: Matthew 9:35-10:1, 5a, 6-8

    35 And Jesus went about all the cities, and towns, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease, and every infirmity.
    36 And seeing the multitudes, he had compassion on them: because they were distressed, and lying like sheep that have no shepherd.
    37 Then he saith to his disciples, The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few.
    38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth labourers into his harvest.
    1 And having called his twelve disciples together, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of diseases, and all manner of infirmities.
    5 a These twelve Jesus sent: commanding them, saying: Go ye not into the way of the Gentiles, and into the city of the Samaritans enter ye not.
    6 But go ye rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    7 And going, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
    8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils: freely have you received, freely give.
