Entrance Antiphon.
The Lord is the strength of his people, a saving refuge for the one he has anointed. Save your people, Lord, and bless your heritage, and govern them for ever. 

 

First Reading: 2 Kings17:5-8.13-15a.18 

A reading from the Second Book of Kings. 

In those days:
Shalmaneser, king of Assyria,
invaded all the land and came to Samaria,
and for three years he besieged it.
In the ninth year of Hoshea,
the king of Assyria captured Samaria,
and he carried the Israelites away to Assyria
and placed them in Halah,
and on the Habor, the river of Gozan,
and in the cities of the Medes.
And this was so
because the people of Israel
had sinned against the Lord their God,
who had brought them up out of the land of Egypt
from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt,
and had feared other gods
and walked in the customs of the nations
whom the Lord drove out before the people of Israel,
and in the customs which the kings of Israel had introduced.  

Yet the Lord warned Israel and Judah
by every prophet and every seer, saying,
“Turn from your evil ways
and keep my commandments and my statutes,
in accordance with all the law which I commanded your ancestors,
and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.”
But they would not listen,
but were stubborn, as their ancestors had been,
who did not believe in the Lord their God.
They despised his statutes,
and his covenant that he made with their ancestors,
and the warnings which he gave them.  

Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel,
and removed them out of his sight;
none was left but the tribe of Judah only. 

The Word of the Lord. 

 

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 60:3.4-5.12-14 (R. 7a) 

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm: 

R/. With your right hand, Lord, grant salvation and give answer. 

O God, you have rejected us, and broken us.
You have been angry; come back to us. 

You have made the earthquake, torn it open.
Repair what is shattered, for it sways.
You have inflicted hardships on your people,
made us drink a wine that dazed us. 

Have you, O God, rejected us?
Will you march with our armies no longer?
Give us help against the foe,
for human help is vain.
With God, we shall do bravely,
and he will trample down our foes. 

R/. With your right hand, Lord, grant salvation and give answer. 

 

Alleluia, Alleluia.
The word of the Lord is living and active,
discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Alleluia. 

 

Gospel: Matthew 7:1-5 

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew. 

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Judge not, that you be not judged.
For with the judgment, you pronounce you will be judged,
and the measure you give will be the measure you get.
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?
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?
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. 

The Gospel of the Lord.
 

Communion Antiphon.
The eyes of all look to you, Lord, and you give them their food in due season.
