First Reading: Deuteronomy 6: 4-13

A reading from the Book of Deuteronomy

Moses spoke to the people, saying,
“Hear, O Israel:
The Lord our God is one Lord;
and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your might.
And these words which I command you this day
shall be upon your heart,
and you shall teach them diligently to your children,
and shall talk of them when you sit in your house,
and when you walk by the way,
and when you lie down, and when you rise.
And you shall bind them as a sign upon your hand,
and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house
and on your gates.

“And when the Lord your God
brings you into the land which he swore to your fathers,
to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob,
to give you,
with great and excellent cities, which you did not build,
and houses full of all good things, which you did not fill,
and cisterns hewn out, which you did not hew,
and vineyards and olive trees, which you did not plant,
and when you eat and are full,
then take heed lest you forget the Lord,
who brought you out of the land of Egypt,
out of the house of bondage.
You shall fear the Lord your God;
you shall serve him, and swear by his name.

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 18:2-3a.3bc-4.47 & 51ab (R. 2)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. I love you, Lord, my strength.

I love you, Lord, my strength;
O Lord, my rock, my fortress, my Saviour.

My God, my rock where I take refuge;
my shield, my saving strength, my stronghold.
I cry out, “Praised be the Lord!”
and see, I am saved from my foes.

The Lord lives, and blest be my Rock!
May the God of my salvation be exalted,
The Lord gives great victories to his king,
and shows merciful love for his anointed.

R/. I love you, Lord, my strength.

Gospel: Matthew 17:14-20

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

At that time:
A man came up to Jesus
and kneeling before him said,
“Lord, have mercy on my son,
for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly;
for often he falls into the fire,
and often into the water.
And I brought him to your disciples,
and they could not heal him.”

And Jesus answered,
“O faithless and perverse generation,
how long am I to be with you?
How long am I to bear with you?
Bring him here to me.”
And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him,
and the boy was cured instantly.

Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said,
“Why could we not cast it out?”

He said to them, “Because of your little faith.
For truly, I say to you,
if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed,
you will say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move,
and nothing will be impossible to you.”

The Gospel of the Lord

Communion Antiphon
