First Reading: Exodus 24:3-8

A reading from the Book of Exodus

In those days:
Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord
and all the ordinances;
and all the people answered with one voice,
and said, “All the words which the Lord has spoken we will do.”

And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord.
And he rose early in the morning,
and built an altar at the foot of the mountain,
and twelve pillars,
according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
And he sent young men of the people of Israel,
who offered burnt offerings
and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen to the Lord.
And Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins,
and half of the blood he threw against the altar.

Then he took the book of the covenant,
and read it in the hearing of the people;
and they said,
“All that the Lord has spoken we will do,
and we will be obedient.”

And Moses took the blood and threw it upon the people,
and said,
“Behold the blood of the covenant
which the Lord has made with you
in accordance with all these words.”

The Word of the Lord

RResponsorial psalm: Ps. 50:1-2.5-6.14-15

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R./ Give your praise as a sacrifice to God.

“The God of gods, the Lord,
has spoken and summoned the earth,
from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Out of Sion, the perfection of beauty,
God is shining forth.”

“Gather my holy ones to me,
who made covenant with me by sacrifice.’
The heavens proclaim his justice,
for he, God, is the judge.
“Give your praise as a sacrifice to God,
and fulfill your vows to the Most High.
Then call on me in the day of distress.
I will deliver you and you shall honor me.”

R./ Give your praise as a sacrifice to God.

Gospel: Matthew 13:24-30

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

At that time:
Another parable Jesus put before the crowds, saying,
“The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man
who sowed good seed in his field;
but while all were sleeping,
his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat,
and went away.
So when the plants came up and bore grain,
then the weeds appeared also.
And the servants of the householder came and said to him,
‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?
How then has it weeds?’
He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’
The servants said to him,
‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’
But he said,
‘No; lest in gathering the weeds
you root up the wheat along with them.
Let both grow together until the harvest;
and at harvest time I will tell the reapers,
Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned,
but gather the wheat into my barn.’”

Communion Antiphon
All generations will call me blessed, for God has regarded his lowly handmaid.
