  • First Reading: Hosea 10:1-3, 7-8, 12

    1 Israel a vine full of branches, the fruit is agreeable to it: according to the multitude of his fruit he hath multiplied altars, according to the plenty of his land he hath abounded with idols.
    2 Their heart is divided: now they shall perish: he shall break down their idols, he shall destroy their altars.
    3 For now they shall say: We have no king: because we fear not the Lord: and what shall a king do to us?
    7 Samaria hath made her king to pass as froth upon the face of the water.
    8 And the high places of the idol, the sin of Israel shall be destroyed: the bur and the thistle shall grow up over their altars: and they shall say to the mountains: Cover us; and to the hills: Fall upon us.
    12 Sow for yourselves in justice, and reap in the mouth of mercy, break up your fallow ground: but the time to seek the Lord is, when he shall come that shall teach you justice.

  • Psalm: Psalms 105:2-3, 4-5, 6-7

    2 Sing to him, yea sing praises to him: relate all his wondrous works.
    3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
    4 Seek ye the Lord, and be strengthened: seek his face evermore.
    5 Remember his marvellous works which he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.
    6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant; ye sons of Jacob his chosen.
    7 He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

  • Gospel: Matthew 10:1-7

    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.
    2 And the names of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother,
    3 James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the publican, and James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddeus,
    4 Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
    5 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.
