Entrance Antiphon
The Lord led her and taught her, and kept her as the apple of his eye. Like an eagle spreading its wings he took her up and bore her on his shoulders. The Lord alone was her guide.

First Reading: Baruch 1:15-21

A reading from the Book of Baruch.

“Righteousness belongs to the Lord our God,
but confusion of face, as at this day, to us,
to the people of Judah,
to the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
and to our kings and our princes
and our priests and our prophets and our ancestors,
because we have sinned before the Lord,
and have disobeyed him,
and have not heeded the voice of the Lord our God,
to walk in the statutes of the Lord which he set before us.

From the day when the Lord brought our ancestors
out of the land of Egypt until today,
we have been disobedient to the Lord our God,
and we have been negligent,
in not heeding his voice.

So to this day there have clung to us
the calamities and the curse
which the Lord declared through Moses his servant
at the time when he brought our ancestors
out of the land of Egypt
to give to us a land flowing with milk and honey.

We did not heed the voice of the Lord our God
in all the words of the prophets whom he sent to us,
but we each followed the intent of his own wicked heart
by serving other gods
and doing what is evil in the sight of the Lord our God.”

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 79:1-2.3-5.8-9 (R. See 9bc)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. For the sake of the glory of your name,
free us O Lord.

O God, the nations have invaded your heritage;
they have profaned your holy temple.
They have made Jerusalem a heap of ruins.
They have handed over the bodies of your servants
as food to feed the birds of heaven,
and the flesh of your faithful to the beasts of the earth.

They have poured out their blood like water round Jerusalem;
no one is left to bury the dead.
We have become the taunt of our neighbours,
the mockery and scorn of those around us.
How long, O Lord? Will you be angry forever?
Will your jealous anger burn like fire?

Do not remember against us
the guilt of former times.
Let your compassion hasten to meet us;
for we have been brought very low.

Help us, O God our saviour,
for the sake of the glory of your name.
Free us and forgive us our sins,
because of your name.

R/. For the sake of the glory of your name,
free us O Lord.

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
Today, harden not your hearts, but listen to the voice of the Lord.


Gospel: Luke 10:13-16

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said, “Woe to you, Chorazin!
woe to you, Bethsaida!
for if the mighty works done in you
had been done in Tyre and Sidon,
they would have repented long ago,
sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
But it shall be more tolerable in the judgment
for Tyre and Sidon than for you.
And you, Capernaum,
will you be exalted to heaven?
You shall be brought down to Hades.

“The one who hears you hears me,
and the one who rejects you rejects me,
and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon
Thus says the Lord: Unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
