    Zechariah 2:5-9, 14-15
    1 And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand!
    2 Then I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its breadth and what is its length."
    3 And behold, the angel who talked with me came forward, and another angel came forward to meet him,
    4 and said to him, "Run, say to that young man, `Jerusalem shall be inhabited as villages without walls, because of the multitude of men and cattle in it.
    5 For I will be to her a wall of fire round about, says the LORD, and I will be the glory within her.'"
    10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for lo, I come and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the LORD.
    11 And many nations shall join themselves to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people; and I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you.

    Jeremiah 31:10-13
    10 "Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, and declare it in the coastlands afar off; say, `He who scattered Israel will gather him, and will keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.'
    11 For the LORD has ransomed Jacob, and has redeemed him from hands too strong for him.
    12 They shall come and sing aloud on the height of Zion, and they shall be radiant over the goodness of the LORD, over the grain, the wine, and the oil, and over the young of the flock and the herd; their life shall be like a watered garden, and they shall languish no more.
    13 Then shall the maidens rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy, I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow.

  • Gospel

    Luke 9:43-45
    43 And all were astonished at the majesty of God. But while they were all marveling at everything he did, he said to his disciples,
    44 "Let these words sink into your ears; for the Son of man is to be delivered into the hands of men."
    45 But they did not understand this saying, and it was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.

    2 Timothy 3:14-17
    14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it
    15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
    16 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
    17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 119:9-14
    9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word.
    10 With my whole heart I seek thee; let me not wander from thy commandments!
    11 I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    12 Blessed be thou, O LORD; teach me thy statutes!
    13 With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth.
    14 In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 13:47-52
    47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind;
    48 when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad.
    49 So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous,
    50 and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.
    51 "Have you understood all this?" They said to him, "Yes."
    52 And he said to them, "Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old."
