Readings and Antiphons on p. 798 of the Daily Missal and p 324 of the Sunday Missal.


Entrance Antiphon.

O come, let us worship God and bow low before the God who made us, for he is the Lord our God.


First Reading: Isaiah 58:7-10

A reading from the Book of Isaiah.

Thus says the Lord:
“Share your bread with the hungry,
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover him,
and not to hide yourself from your own flesh.
Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you,
the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
you shall cry, and he will say, Here I am.

“If you take away from the midst of you the yoke,
the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
if you pour yourself out for the hungry
and satisfy the desire of the afflicted,
then shall your light rise in the darkness
and your gloom be as the noonday.”

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 112:4-5.6-7.8a & 9 (R. 4a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. A light rises in the darkness for the upright.

A light rises in the darkness for the upright;
he is generous, merciful, and just.
It goes well for the man who deals generously and lends,
who conducts his affairs with justice.

He will never be moved;
forever shall the just be remembered.
He has no fear of evil news;
with a firm heart, he trusts in the Lord.

With a steadfast heart, he will not fear;
Open-handed, he gives to the poor;
his justice stands firm forever.
His might shall be exalted in glory.

R/. A light rises in the darkness for the upright.

Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

When I came to you, brothers and sisters,
I did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God
in lofty words or wisdom.
For I decided to know nothing among you
except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
And I was with you in weakness and in much fear and trembling,
and my speech and my message
were not in plausible words of wisdom,
but in demonstration of the Spirit and power,
that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of people
but in the power of God.

The Word of the Lord.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
I am the light of the world, says the Lord; he who follows me will have the light of life.


Gospel: Matthew 5:13-16

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“You are the salt of the earth;
but if salt has lost its taste,
how shall its saltness be restored?
It is no longer good for anything
except to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by people.

“You are the light of the world.
A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a bushel,
but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
Let your light so shine before people,
that they may see your good works
and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

The Gospel of the Lord.


Communion Antiphon.

Let them thank the Lord for his mercy, his wonders for the children of men; for he satisfies the thirsty soul, and the hungry he fills with good things.
