Memorial of Saint Benedict – Year II

Readings on p. 1048 and Antiphons on p. 1676 of the Daily Missal.

First Reading: Isaiah 1:10-17
A reading from the Book of Isaiah

Hear the word of the Lord, 
you rulers of Sodom! 
Give ear to the teaching of our God, 
you people of Gomorrah! 
“What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? 
says the Lord; 
I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams 
and the fat of fed beasts; 
I do not delight in the blood of bulls, 
or of lambs, or of he-goats.

“When you come to appear before me, 
who requires of you 
this trampling of my courts? 
Bring no more vain offerings; 
incense is an abomination to me. 
New moon and sabbath and the calling of assemblies—
I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly. 
Your new moons and your appointed feasts 
my soul hates; 
they have become a burden to me, 
I am weary of bearing them.

When you spread forth your hands, 
I will hide my eyes from you; 
even though you make many prayers, 
I will not listen; 
your hands are full of blood. 
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; 
remove the evil of your doings 
from before my eyes; 
cease to do evil, 
learn to do good; 
seek justice, 
correct oppression; 
defend the fatherless, 
plead for the widow.

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 50:8-9.16bc-17.21 & 23 (R. 23bc)
Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. To one whose way is blameless, I will show the salvation of God.
I do not rebuke you for your sacrifices;
your offerings are always before me.
I do not take more bullocks from your farms,
nor goats from among your herds.

“How can you recite my commandments,
and take my covenant on your lips,
you who despise correction,
and cast my words behind you, You do this, and should I keep silence?
Do you think that I am like you?
I accuse you, lay the charge before you.
A sacrifice of praise gives me honour,
and to one whose way is blameless,
I will show the salvation of God.”

R/. To one whose way is blameless,
 I will show the salvation of God.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, 
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


Gospel: Matthew 10:34-11:1
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time: Jesus said to his apostles, 
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; 
I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 
For I have come to set a man against his father, 
and a daughter against her mother, 
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 
and a man’s foes will be those of his own household. 
He who loves father or mother more than me 
is not worthy of me, 
and he who loves son or daughter more than me 
is not worthy of me, 
and he who does not take his cross and follow me 
is not worthy of me.

The one who finds his life will lose it, 
and the one who loses his life for my sake will find it.
“The who receives you receives me, 
and the one who receives me receives him who sent me. 
The who receives a prophet because he is a prophet 
shall receive a prophet’s reward, 
and the one who receives a righteous person
because he is a righteous person 
shall receive a righteous man’s reward.

And whoever gives to one of these little ones 
even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, 
truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.” And when Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, 
he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.

The Gospel of the Lord.
