First Reading: Amos 9:11-15

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Amos.

Thus says the Lord:
“In that day “I will raise up
the booth of David that is fallen
and repair its breaches,
and raise up its ruins,
and rebuild it as in the days of old;
that they may possess the remnant of Edom
and all the nations who are called by my name,”
says the Lord, who does this.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“when the plough man shall overtake the reaper
and the trader of grapes him who sows the seed;
the mountains shall drip sweet wine
and the hills shall flow with it.
I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,
and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;
they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,
and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.
I will plant them upon their land,
and they shall never again be plucked up
out of the land which I have given them,”
says the Lord your God.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 85:9.11-12.13-14 (R. see 9b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord speaks of peace for his people.

I will hear what the Lord God speaks;
he speaks of peace for his people and his faithful,
and those who turn their hearts to him.

Merciful love and faithfulness have met;
justice and peace have kissed.
Faithfulness shall spring from the earth,
and justice look down from heaven.

Also the Lord will bestow his bounty,
and our earth shall yield its increase.
Justice will march before him,
and guide his steps on the way.

R/. The Lord speaks of peace for his people.

 

Alleluia, Alleluia.
My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
and I know them, and they follow me.
Alleluia.

 

Gospel: Matthew 9:14-17

At that time:
The disciples of John came to Jesus, saying,
“Why do we and the Pharisees fast,
but your disciples do not fast?”
And Jesus said to them,
“Can the wedding guests mourn
as long as the bridegroom is with them?
The days will come
when the bridegroom is taken away from them,
and then they will fast.
And no one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment,
for the patch tears away from the garment,
and a worse tear is made.
Neither is new wine put into old wineskins;
if it is, the skins burst
and the wine is spilled,
and the skins are destroyed;
but new wine is put into fresh wineskins,
and so both are preserved.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
