First Reading: Genesis 12:1-9

A reading from the Book of Genesis

In those days:
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.
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.
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.”

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.
And Abram took Sarai 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,
Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem,
to the oak of Moreh.
At that time the Canaanites were in the land.
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.
Thence he moved 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.
And Abram journeyed on, still going toward the Negeb.

The Word of the Lord


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 33:12-13, 18-22 (R/12b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/.  Blessed the people the Lord has chosen as his heritage

 Blessed the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his heritage.
From the heavens the Lord looks forth
he sees all the children of men.

Yes, the Lord’s eyes are on those who fear him,
who hope n his merciful love.
to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
He is our help and our shield.
May your merciful love be upon us,
as we hope in you, O Lord.

R/.  Blessed the people the Lord has chosen as his heritage


Please stand for the Gospel

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



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 or sister’s eye,
but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
Or how can you say to your brother or sister,
‘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 or sister’s eye.
