First Reading: Genesis 17:1.9-10.15-22

A reading from the Book of Genesis

When Abram was ninety-nine years old
the Lord appeared to Abram, and said to him,
“I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless.

And God said to Abraham,
“As for you, you shall keep my covenant,
you and your descendants after you
throughout their generations.
This is my covenant, which you shall keep,
between me and you and your descendants after you:
Every male among you shall be circumcised.

And God said to Abraham,
“As for Sarai your wife,
you shall not call her name Sarai,
but Sarah shall be her name.
I will bless her,
and moreover I will give you a son by her;
I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations;
kings of peoples shall come from her.”

Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed,
and said to himself,
“Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old?
Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?”
And Abraham said to God,
“O that Ishmael might live in your sight!”

God said, “No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son,
and you shall call his name Isaac.
I will establish my covenant with him
as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
As for Ishmael, I have heard you;
behold, I will bless him and make him fruitful
and multiply him exceedingly;
he shall be the father of twelve princes,
and I will make him a great nation.
But I will establish my covenant with Isaac,
whom Sarah shall bear to you at this season next year.”

When he had finished talking with him,
God went up from Abraham.

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 128:1-2.3.4-5 (R. 4)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Indeed thus shall be blessed the man who fears the Lord.

Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
and walk in his ways!
By the labour of your hands you shall eat.
You will be blessed and prosper.

Your wife like a fruitful vine
in the heart of your house;
your children like shoots of the olive
around your table.

Indeed thus shall be blessed the man who fears the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Sion.
May you see Jerusalem prosper
all the days of your life!

R/. Indeed thus shall be blessed the man who fears the Lord.

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
Christ took our infirmities and bore our diseases.


Gospel: Matthew 8:1-4

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

When Jesus came down from the mountain,
great crowds followed him;
and behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying,
“Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.”

And he stretched out his hand and touched him, saying,
“I will; be clean.”
And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
And Jesus said to him,
“See that you say nothing to anyone;
but go, show yourself to the priest,
and offer the gift that Moses commanded,
for a proof to the people.”
