  • First Reading: Isaiah 4:2-6

    2 In that day the bud of the Lord shall be in magnificence and glory, and the fruit of the earth shall be high, and a great joy to them that shall have escaped of Israel.
    3 And it shall come to pass, that every one that shall be left in Sion, and that shall remain in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, every one that is written in life in Jerusalem.
    4 If the Lord shall wash away the filth of the daughters of Sion, and shall wash away the blood of Jerusalem out of the midst thereof, by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
    5 And the Lord will create upon every place of mount Sion, and where he is called upon, a cloud by day, and a smoke and the brightness of a flaming fire in the night: for over all the glory shall be a protection.
    6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a security and covert from the whirlwind, and from rain. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 122:1-2, 3-4b, 4cd-5, 6-7, 8-9

    1 I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: We shall go into the house of the Lord.
    2 Our feet were standing in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
    3 Jerusalem, which is built as a city, which is compact together.
    4 ab For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord:
    4 cd The testimony of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord.
    5 Because their seats have sat in judgment, seats upon the house of David.
    6 Pray ye for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem: and abundance for them that love thee.
    7 Let peace be in thy strength: and abundance in thy towers.
    8 For the sake of my brethren, and of my neighbours, I spoke peace of thee.
    9 Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.

  • Gospel: Matthew 8:5-11

    5 And when he had entered into Capharnaum, there came to him a centurion, beseeching him,
    6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, and is grieviously tormented.
    7 And Jesus saith to him: I will come and heal him.
    8 And the centurion making answer, said: Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof: but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
    9 For I also am a man subject to authority, having under me soldiers; and I say to this, Go, and he goeth, and to another, Come, and he cometh, and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
    10 And Jesus hearing this, marvelled; and said to them that followed him: Amen I say to you, I have not found so great faith in Israel.
    11 And I say to you that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
