  • First Reading: 2 Thessalonians 1:1-5, 11-12

    1 Paul, and Sylvanus, and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    2 Grace unto you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
    3 We are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you towards each other, aboundeth:
    4 So that we ourselves also glory in you in the churches of God, for your patience and faith, and in all your persecutions and tribulations, which you endure,
    5 For an example of the just judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which also you suffer.
    11 Wherefore also we pray always for you; that our God would make you worthy of his vocation, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness and the work of faith in power;
    12 That the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Psalm: Psalms 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 4-5

    1 Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: sing to the Lord, all the earth.
    2 Sing ye to the Lord and bless his name: shew forth his salvation from day to day.
    3 Declare his glory among the Gentiles: his wonders among all people.
    4 For the Lord is great, and exceedingly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
    5 For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.

  • Gospel: Matthew 23:13-22

    13 But woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men, for you yourselves do not enter in; and those that are going in, you suffer not to enter.
    14 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: because you devour the houses of widows, praying long prayers. For this you shall receive the greater judgment.
    15 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves.
    16 Woe to you blind guides, that say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but he that shall swear by the gold of the temple, is a debtor.
    17 Ye foolish and blind; for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
    18 And whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it, is a debtor.
    19 Ye blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
    20 He therefore that sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things that are upon it:
    21 And whosoever shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth in it:
    22 And he that sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
