  • First Reading: 1 Peter 5:1-4

    1 The ancients therefore that are among you, I beseech, who am myself also an ancient, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ: as also a partaker of that glory which is to be revealed in time to come:
    2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking care of it, not by constraint, but willingly, according to God: not for filthy lucre' s sake, but voluntarily:
    3 Neither as lording it over the clergy, but being made a pattern of the flock from the heart.
    4 And when the prince of pastors shall appear, you shall receive a never fading crown of glory. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 23:1-3a, 4, 5, 6

    1 A psalm for David. The Lord ruleth me: and I shall want nothing.
    2 He hath set me in a place of pasture. He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment:
    3 a He hath converted my soul.

    4 For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they have comforted me.

    5 Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!

    6 And thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life. And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days. 

  • Gospel: Matthew 16:13-19

    13 And Jesus came into the quarters of Caesarea Philippi: and he asked his disciples, saying: Whom do men say that the Son of man is?
    14 But they said: Some John the Baptist, and other some Elias, and others Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
    15 Jesus saith to them: But whom do you say that I am?
    16 Simon Peter answered and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God.
    17 And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven.
    18 And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
    19 And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.
