Mass of Our Lady (Ordinary Time, Year II)
Readings on p. 1165 and Antiphons on p. 1864 of the Daily Missal. (Common BVM#4)

 

First Reading: Ezekiel 18:1-10.13b.30-32

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Ezekiel.

The word of the Lord came to me again:
What do you mean by repeating this proverb
concerning the land of Israel,
‘The parents have eaten sour grapes,
and the children’s teeth are set on edge’?
As I live, says the Lord God,
this proverb shall no more be used by you in Israel.
Behold, all souls are mine;
the soul of the parent as well as the soul of the child is mine:
it is only the person who sins that shall die.

“If a man is righteous and does what is lawful and right—
if he does not eat upon the mountains
or lift up their eyes to the idols of the house of Israel,
does not defile his neighbour’s wife
or approach a woman during her menstrual period,
does not oppress anyone,
but restores to the debtor his pledge,
commits no robbery,
gives his bread to the hungry
and covers the naked with a garment,
does not take advance or accrued interest,
withholds his hand from iniquity,
executes true justice between contending parties,
follows my statutes
and is careful to observe my ordinances —
such a one is righteous; he shall surely live,
says the Lord God.

“If he has a son who is violent,
a shedder of blood,
he shall not live.
He has done all these abominable things;
he shall surely die;
his blood shall be upon himself.

Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel,
everyone according to your ways,
says the Lord God.
Repent and turn from all your transgressions;
otherwise, iniquity will be your ruin.
Cast away from you all the transgressions
that you have committed against me,
and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit!
Why will you die, O house of Israel?
For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone,
says the Lord God.
so turn, and live.

The Word of the Lord.

 

 

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 51:12-13.14-15.18-19 (R. 12a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Create a pure heart for me, O God.

Create a pure heart for me, O God;
renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence;
take not your holy spirit from me.

Restore in me the joy of your salvation;
sustain in me a willing spirit.
I will teach transgressors your ways,
that sinners may return to you.

For in sacrifice you take no delight;
burnt offering from me would not please you.
My sacrifice to God, a broken spirit:
a broken and humbled heart,
O God, you will not spurn.

R/. Create a pure heart for me, O God.

 

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.
Alleluia.

 

Gospel: Matthew 19:13-15

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time:
Children were brought to Jesus
that he might lay his hands on them and pray.
The disciples rebuked the people;
but Jesus said,
‘Let the little children come to me,
and do not stop them;
for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.’
And he laid his hands on them and went on his way.

The Gospel of the Lord.
