First Reading: Exodus 12:37-42

A reading from the Book of Exodus

In those days:
The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth,
about six hundred thousand men on foot,
besides women and children.
A mixed multitude also went up with them,
and very many cattle, both flocks and herds.
And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough
which they had brought out of Egypt,
for it was not leavened,
because they were thrust out of Egypt and could not tarry,
neither had they prepared for themselves any provisions.

The time that the people of Israel dwelt in Egypt
was four hundred and thirty years.
And at the end of four hundred and thirty years,
on that very day,
all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.
It was a night of watching by the Lord,
to bring them out of the land of Egypt;
so this same night is a night of watching kept to the Lord
by all the people of Israel throughout their generations.

The Word of the Lord



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 136:1&23-24.10-12.13-15 (R. 1b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. For his mercy endures forever.

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his mercy endures forever.
He remembered us in our distress,
for his mercy endures forever.
And he snatched us away from our foes,
for his mercy endures forever.

The firstborn of the Egyptians he smote,
for his mercy endures forever.
He brought Israel out from their midst,
for his mercy endures forever;
with mighty hand and outstretched arm,
for his mercy endures forever.

The Red Sea he divided in two,
for his mercy endures forever;
he made Israel pass through the midst,
for his mercy endures forever;
he flung Pharaoh and his force in the Red Sea,
for his mercy endures forever.

R/. For his mercy endures forever.

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself,
and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.



Gospel: Matthew 12:14-21

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

At that time:
The Pharisees went out and took counsel against Jesus,
how to destroy him.
Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there.
And many followed him, and he healed them all,
and ordered them not to make him known.
This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:
“Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
I will put my Spirit upon him,
and he shall proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
He will not wrangle or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
he will not break a bruised reed
or quench a smouldering wick,
till he brings justice to victory;
and in his name will the Gentiles hope.”

The Gospel of the Lord


Communion Antiphon
He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
