  • First Reading: Jeremiah 7: 1-11

    1 The word that came to Jeremias from the Lord, saying:
    2 Stand in the gate of the house of the Lord, and proclaim there this word, and say: Hear ye the word of the Lord, all ye men of Juda, that enter in at these gates, to adore the Lord.
    3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Make your ways and your doings good: and I will dwell with you in this place.
    4 Trust not in lying words, saying: The temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, it is the temple of the Lord.
    5 For if you will order well your ways, and your doings: if you will execute judgement between a man and his neighbour,
    6 If you oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, and walk not after strange gods to your own hurt,
    7 I will dwell with you in this place: in the land, which I gave to your fathers from the beginning and for evermore.
    8 Behold you put your trust in lying words, which shall not profit you:
    9 To steal, to murder, to commit adultery, to swear falsely, to offer to Baalim, and to go after strange gods, which you know not.
    10 And you have come, and stood before me in this house, in which my name is called upon, and have said: We are delivered, because we have done all these abominations.
    11 Is this house then, in which my name hath been called upon, in your eyes become a den of robbers? I, I am he: I have seen it, saith the Lord. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 84: 3, 4, 5-6A, 8A, 11

    3 My soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord. My heart and my flesh have rejoiced in the living God.

    4 For the sparrow hath found herself a house, and the turtle a nest for herself where she may lay her young ones: Thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my king and my God.

    5 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house, O Lord: they shall praise thee for ever and ever.
    6 Blessed is the man whose help is from thee:

    8 For the lawgiver shall give a blessing, they shall go from virtue to virtue:

    11 For better is one day in thy courts above thousands. I have chosen to be an abject in the house of my God, rather than to dwell in the tabernacles of sinners. 

  • Gospel: Matthew 13: 24-30

    24 Another parable he proposed to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seeds in his field.
    25 But while men were asleep, his enemy came and oversowed cockle among the wheat and went his way.
    26 And when the blade was sprung up, and had brought forth fruit, then appeared also the cockle.
    27 And the servants of the goodman of the house coming said to him: Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? whence then hath it cockle?
    28 And he said to them: An enemy hath done this. And the servants said to him: Wilt thou that we go and gather it up?
    29 And he said: No, lest perhaps gathering up the cockle, you root up the wheat also together with it.
    30 Suffer both to grow until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather up first the cockle, and bind it into bundles to burn, but the wheat gather ye into my barn.
