Readings and Antiphons on p. 938 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon

Hear my voice, O Lord, for I have called to you; be my help. Do not abandon or forsake me, O God, my Saviour.

First Reading: Exodus 19:2-6a.

A reading from the Book of Exodus.

In those days:
When the people of Israel came into the wilderness of Sinai,
they encamped in the wilderness;
and there Israel encamped before the mountain.
And Moses went up to God,
and the Lord called to him out of the mountain, saying,
“Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob,
and tell the people of Israel:
You have seen what I did to the Egyptians,
and how I bore you on eagles’ wings
and brought you to myself.
Now therefore,
if you will obey my voice and keep my covenant,
you shall be my own possession among all peoples;
for all the earth is mine,
and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 100:1-2.3.5 (R. 3c)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. We are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us; we belong to him.
We are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age.

R/. We are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Second Reading: Romans 5:6-11

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans.

Brothers and sisters:
While we were yet helpless,
at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
Why, one will hardly die for a righteous man—
though perhaps for a good man one will dare even to die.
But God shows his love for us
in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
Since, therefore, we are now justified by his blood,
much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
For if while we were enemies
we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son,
much more, now that we are reconciled,
shall we be saved by his life.
Not only so,
but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have now received our reconciliation.

The Word of the Lord.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
The kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the Gospel.

Gospel: Matthew 9:36-10:8

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time:
When Jesus saw the crowds,
he had compassion for them,
because they were harassed and helpless,
like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples,
“The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few;
pray therefore the Lord of the harvest
to send out labourers into his harvest.”
And he called to him his twelve disciples
and gave them authority over unclean spirits,
to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every infirmity.
The names of the twelve apostles are these:
first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother;
James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
Philip and Bartholomew;
Thomas and Matthew the tax collector;
James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus;
Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
These twelve Jesus sent out, charging them,
“Go nowhere among the Gentiles,
and enter no town of the Samaritans,
but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
And preach as you go, saying,
‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
Heal the sick, raise the dead,
cleanse lepers, cast out demons.
You received without pay, give without pay.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon

There is one thing I ask of the Lord, only this do I seek: to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.
