    Genesis 12:1-9
    1 Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you.
    2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.
    3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse; and by you all the families of the earth shall bless themselves."
    4 So Abram went, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.
    5 And Abram took Sar'ai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions which they had gathered, and the persons that they had gotten in Haran; and they set forth to go to the land of Canaan. When they had come to the land of Canaan,
    6 Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land.
    7 Then the LORD appeared to Abram, and said, "To your descendants I will give this land." So he built there an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.
    8 Thence he removed to the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the LORD and called on the name of the LORD.
    9 And Abram journeyed on, still going toward the Negeb.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 33:12-13, 18-20, 22
    12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!
    13 The LORD looks down from heaven, he sees all the sons of men;
    18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love,
    19 that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine.
    20 Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and shield.
    22 Let thy steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in thee.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 7:1-5
    1 "Judge not, that you be not judged.
    2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.
    3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
    4 Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye?
    5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

    1 John 5:1-5
    1 Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God, and every one who loves the parent loves the child.
    2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments.
    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.
    4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith.
    5 Who is it that overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 11
    1 Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge.
    2 I say to the LORD, "Thou art my Lord; I have no good apart from thee."
    5 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; thou holdest my lot.
    7 I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.
    8 I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
    11 Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 22:34-40
    34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sad'ducees, they came together.
    35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, to test him.
    36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"
    37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
    38 This is the great and first commandment.
    39 And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    40 On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets."
