  • First Reading: Jonah 4:1-11

    1 And Jonas was exceedingly troubled, and was angry:
    2 And he prayed to the Lord, and said: I beseech thee, O Lord, is not this what I said, when I was yet in my own country? therefore I went before to flee into Tharsis: for I know that thou art a gracious and merciful God, patient, and of much compassion, and easy to forgive evil.
    3 And now, O Lord, I beseech thee take my life from me: for it is better for me to die than to live.
    4 And the Lord said: Dost thou think thou hast reason to be angry?
    5 Then Jonas went out of the city, and sat toward the east side of the city: and he made himself a booth there, and he sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would befall the city.
    6 And the Lord God prepared an ivy, and it came up over the head of Jonas, to be a shadow over his head, and to cover him (for he was fatigued), and Jonas was exceeding glad of the ivy.
    7 But God prepared a worm, when the morning arose on the following day: and it struck the ivy and it withered.
    8 And when the sun was risen, the Lord commanded a hot and burning wind: and the sun beat upon the head of Jonas, and he broiled with the heat: and he desired for his soul that he might die, and said: It is better for me to die than to live.
    9 And the Lord said to Jonas: Dost thou think thou hast reason to be angry, for the ivy? And he said: I am angry with reason even unto death.
    10 And the Lord said: Thou art grieved for the ivy, for which thou hast not laboured, nor made it to grow, which in one night came up, and in one night perished.
    11 And shall not I spare Ninive, that great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons that know not how to distinguish between their right hand and their left, and many beasts?

  • Psalm: Psalms 86:3-4, 5-6, 9-10

    3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I have cried to thee all the day.
    4 Give joy to the soul of thy servant, for to thee, O Lord, I have lifted up my soul.
    5 For thou, O Lord, art sweet and mild: and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon thee.
    6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer: and attend to the voice of my petition.
    9 All the nations thou hast made shall come and adore before thee, O Lord: and they shall glorify thy name.
    10 For thou art great and dost wonderful things: thou art God alone. 

  • Gospel: Luke 11:1-4

    1 And it came to pass, that as he was in a certain place praying, when he ceased, one of his disciples said to him: Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
    2 And he said to them: When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
    3 Give us this day our daily bread.
    4 And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.
