  • First Reading: Exodus 3:1-8a, 13-15

    1 Now Moses fed the sheep of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Madian: and he drove the flock to the inner parts of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, Horeb.
    2 And the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he saw that the bush was on fire and was not burnt.
    3 And Moses said: I will go and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
    4 And when the Lord saw that he went forward to see, he called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said: Moses, Moses. And he answered: Here I am.
    5 And he said: Come not nigh hither, put off the shoes from thy feet: for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
    6 And he said: I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Moses hid his face: for he durst not look at God.
    7 And the Lord said to him: I have seen the affliction of my people in Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of the rigour of them that are over the works:
    8 a And knowing their sorrow, I am come down to deliver them out of the hands of the Egyptians, and to bring them out of that land into a good and spacious land, into a land that floweth with milk and honey
    13 Moses said to God: Lo, I shall go to the children of Israel, and say to them: The God of your fathers hath sent me to you. If they should say to me: What is his name? what shall I say to them?
    14 God said to Moses: I AM WHO AM. He said: Thus shalt thou say to the children of Israel: HE WHO IS, hath sent me to you.
    15 And God said again to Moses: Thus shalt thou say to the children of Israel: The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me to you: This is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

  • Psalm: Psalms 103: 1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8, 11

    1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and let all that is within me bless his holy name.
    2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and never forget all he hath done for thee.
    3 Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases.
    4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion.
    6 The Lord doth mercies, and judgment for all that suffer wrong.
    7 He hath made his ways known to Moses: his wills to the children of Israel.
    8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy.
    11 For according to the height of the heaven above the earth: he hath strengthened his mercy towards them that fear him.

  • Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:1-6, 10-12

    1 For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea.
    2 And all in Moses were baptized, in the cloud, and in the sea:
    3 did all eat the same spiritual food,
    4 And all drank the same spiritual drink; (and they drank of the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ.)
    5 But with most of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the desert.
    6 Now these things were done in a figure of us, that we should not covet evil things as they also coveted.
    10 Neither do you murmur: as some of them murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
    11 Now all these things happened to them in figure: and they are written for our correction, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
    12 Wherefore he that thinketh himself to stand, let him take heed lest he fall.

  • Gospel: Luke 13:1-9

    1 And there were present, at that very time, some that told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
    2 And he answering, said to them: Think you that these Galileans were sinners above all the men of Galilee, because they suffered such things?
    3 No, I say to you: but unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish.
    4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower fell in Siloe, and slew them: think you, that they also were debtors above all the men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
    5 No, I say to you; but except you do penance, you shall all likewise perish.
    6 He spoke also this parable: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it, and found none.
    7 And he said to the dresser of the vineyard: Behold, for these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it done therefore: why cumbereth it the ground?
    8 But he answering, said to him: Lord, let it alone this year also, until I dig about it, and dung it.
    9 And if happily it bear fruit: but if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
