  • First Reading: Jeremiah 1:1, 4-10

    1 The words of Jeremias the son of Helcias, of the priests that were in Anathoth, in the land of Benjamin.

    4 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
    5 Before I formed thee in the bowels of thy mother, I knew thee: and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee, and made thee a prophet unto the nations.
    6 And I said: Ah, ah, ah, Lord God: behold, I cannot speak, for I am a child.
    7 And the Lord said to me: Say not: I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee: and whatsoever I shall command thee, thou shalt speak.
    8 Be not afraid at their presence: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
    9 And the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth: and the Lord said to me: Behold I have given my words in thy mouth:
    10 Lo, I have set thee this day over the nations, and over the kingdoms, to root up, and pull down, and to waste, and to destroy, and to build, and to plant. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 71: 1-2, 3-4A, 5-6AB, 15, 17

    1 In thee, O Lord, I have hoped, let me never be put to confusion:
    2 Deliver me in thy justice, and rescue me. Incline thy ear unto me, and save me.

    3 Be thou unto me a God, a protector, and a place of strength: that thou mayst make me safe. For thou art my firmament and my refuge.
    4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the sinner, and out of the hand of the transgressor of the law and of the unjust.

    5 For thou art my patience, O Lord: my hope, O Lord, from my youth;
    6 By thee have I been confirmed from the womb: from my mother' s womb thou art my protector. Of thee shall I continually sing:

    15 Learning: As much as to say, I build not upon human learning, but only on the power and justice of God.

    17 Thou hast taught me, O God, from my youth: and till now I will declare thy wonderful works.

  • Gospel: Matthew 13: 1-9

    1 The same day Jesus going out of the house, sat by the sea side.
    2 And great multitudes were gathered unto him, so that he went up into a boat and sat: and all the multitude stood on the shore.
    3 And he spoke to them many things in parables, saying: Behold the sower went forth to sow.
    4 And whilst he soweth some fell by the way side, and the birds of the air came and ate them up.
    5 And other some fell upon stony ground, where they had not much earth: and they sprung up immediately, because they had no deepness of earth.
    6 And when the sun was up they were scorched: and because they had not root, they withered away.
    7 And others fell among thorns: and the thorns grew up and choked them.
    8 And others fell upon good ground: and they brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, and some thirtyfold.
    9 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
