  • First Reading: Isaiah 41:13-20

    13 For I am the Lord thy God, who take thee by the hand, and say to thee: Fear not, I have helped thee.
    14 Fear not, thou worm of Jacob, you that are dead of Israel: I have helped thee, saith the Lord: and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel.
    15 I have made thee as a new thrashing wain, with teeth like a saw: thou shall thrash the mountains, and break them in pieces: and shalt make the hills as chaff.
    16 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the Lord, in the Holy One of Israel thou shalt be joyful.
    17 The needy and the poor seek for waters, and there are none: their tongue hath been dry with thirst. I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
    18 I will open rivers in the high bills, and fountains in the midst of the plains: I will turn the desert into pools of waters, and the impassable land into streams of waters.
    19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, and the thorn, and the myrtle, and the olive tree: I will set in the desert the fir tree, the elm, and the box tree together:
    20 That they may see and know, and consider, and understand together that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.

  • Psalm: Psalms 145:1 and 9, 10-11, 12-13ab

    1 I will extol thee, O God my king: and I will bless thy name for ever; yea, for ever and ever.
    9 The Lord is sweet to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
    10 Let all thy works, O lord, praise thee: and let thy saints bless thee.
    11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom: and shall tell of thy power:
    12 To make thy might known to the sons of men: and the glory of the magnificence of thy kingdom.
    13 Thy kingdom is a kingdom of all ages: and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

  • Gospel: Matthew 11:11-15

    11 Amen I say to you, there hath not risen among them that are born of women a greater than John the Baptist: yet he that is the lesser in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
    12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent bear it away.
    13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John:
    14 And if you will receive it, he is Elias that is to come.
    15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
