  • First Reading: Ezekial 36:23-28

    23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the Gentiles, which you have profaned in the midst of them: that the Gentiles may know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord of hosts, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
    24 For I will take you from among the Gentiles, and will gather you together out of all the countries, and will bring you into your own land.
    25 And I will pour upon you clean water, and you shall be cleansed from all your filthiness, and I will cleanse you from all your idols.
    26 And I will give you a new heart, and put a new spirit within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and will give you a heart of flesh.
    27 And I will put my spirit in the midst of you: and I will cause you to walk in my commandments, and to keep my judgments, and do them.
    28 And you shall dwell in the land which I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.

  • Psalm: Psalms 51:12-13, 14-15, 18-19

    12 Create a clean heart in me, O God: and renew a right spirit within my bowels.
    13 Cast me not away from thy face; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
    14 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, and strengthen me with a perfect spirit.
    15 I will teach the unjust thy ways: and the wicked shall be converted to thee.
    18 For if thou hadst desired sacrifice, I would indeed have given it: with burnt offerings thou wilt not be delighted.
    19 A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: a contrite and humbled heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

  • Gospel: Matthew 22:1-14

    1 And Jesus answering, spoke again in parables to them, saying:
    2 The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son.
    3 And he sent his servants, to call them that were invited to the marriage; and they would not come.
    4 Again he sent other servants, saying: Tell them that were invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my calves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come ye to the marriage.
    5 But they neglected, and went their own ways, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise.
    6 And the rest laid hands on his servants, and having treated them contumeliously, put them to death.
    7 But when the king had heard of it, he was angry, and sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers, and burnt their city.
    8 Then he saith to his servants: The marriage indeed is ready; but they that were invited were not worthy.
    9 Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage.
    10 And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests.
    11 And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment.
    12 And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? But he was silent.
    13 Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
