  • First Reading

    Hosea 10:1-3, 7-8, 12
    1 Israel is a luxuriant vine that yields its fruit. The more his fruit increased the more altars he built; as his country improved he improved his pillars.
    2 Their heart is false; now they must bear their guilt. The LORD will break down their altars, and destroy their pillars.
    3 For now they will say: "We have no king, for we fear not the LORD, and a king, what could he do for us?"
    7 Sama'ria's king shall perish, like a chip on the face of the waters.
    8 The high places of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be destroyed. Thorn and thistle shall grow up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us, and to the hills, Fall upon us.
    12 Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and rain salvation upon you.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 105:2-7
    2 Sing to him, sing praises to him, tell of all his wonderful works!
    3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
    4 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his presence continually!
    5 Remember the wonderful works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
    6 O offspring of Abraham his servant, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
    7 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 10:1-7
    1 And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every infirmity.
    2 The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zeb'edee, and John his brother;
    3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus;
    4 Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
    5 These twelve Jesus sent out, charging them, "Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans,
    6 but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    7 And preach as you go, saying, `The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'
