  • First Reading: Ezekial 24:15-23

    15 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
    16 Son of man, behold I take from thee the desire of thy eyes with a stroke: and thou shalt not lament, nor weep: neither shall thy tears run down.
    17 Sigh in silence, make no mourning for the dead: let the tire of thy head be upon thee, and thy shoes on thy feet, and cover not thy face, nor eat the meat of mourners.
    18 So I spoke to the people in the morning, and my wife died in the evening: and I did in the morning as he had commanded me.
    19 And the people said to me: Why dost thou not tell us what these things mean that thou doest?
    20 And I said to them: The word of the Lord came to me, saying:
    21 Speak to the house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord God: Behold I will profane my sanctuary, the glory of your realm, and the thing that your eyes desire, and for which your soul feareth: your sons, and your daughters, whom you have left, shall fall by the sword.
    22 And you shall do as I have done: you shall not cover your faces, nor shall you eat the meat of mourners.
    23 You shall have crowns on your heads, and shoes on your feet: you shall not lament nor weep, but you shall pine away for your iniquities, and every one shall sigh with his brother.

  • Psalm: Deuteronomy 32:18-19, 20, 21

    18 Thou hast forsaken the God that beget thee, and hast forgotten the Lord that created thee.
    19 The Lord saw, and was moved to wrath: because his own sons and daughters provoked him.
    20 And he said: I will hide my face from them, and will consider what their last end shall be: for it is a perverse generation, and unfaithful children.
    21 They have provoked me with that which was no god, and have angered me with their vanities: and I will provoke them with that which is no people, and will vex them with a foolish nation.

  • Gospel: Matthew 19:16-22

    16 And behold one came and said to him: Good master, what good shall I do that I may have life everlasting?
    17 Who said to him: Why asketh thou me concerning good? One is good, God. But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
    18 He said to him: Which? And Jesus said: Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness.
    19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    20 The young man saith to him: All these I have kept from my youth, what is yet wanting to me?
    21 Jesus saith to him: If thou wilt be perfect, go sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come follow me.
    22 And when the young man had heard this word, he went away sad: for he had great possessions.
