Readings and Antiphons on p. 1796 of the Daily Missal and p.1061 of the Sunday Missal.


First Reading: Revelation 7:2-4.9-14

A reading from the Book of Revelation.

I, John, saw another angel ascend from the rising of the sun,
with the seal of the living God,
and he called with a loud voice to the four angels
who had been given power to harm earth and sea
saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God
upon their foreheads.”
And I heard the number of the sealed,
a hundred and forty-four thousand sealed,
out of every tribe of the sons of Israel.

After this I looked, and behold,
a great multitude which no man could number,
from every nation,
from all tribes and peoples and tongues,
standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
and crying out with a loud voice,
“Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne,
and to the Lamb!”

And all the angels stood round the throne
and round the elders and the four living creatures,
and they fell on their faces before the throne
and worshipped God, saying, “Amen!
Blessing and glory and wisdom
and thanksgiving and honour and power and might
be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

Then one of the elders addressed me, saying,
“Who are these, clothed in white robes,
and whence have they come?”
I said to him, “Sir, you know.”
And he said to me,
“These are they who have come out of the great tribulation;
they have washed their robes
and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 24:1-2.3-4ab.5-6 (R. cf 6a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. These are the people who seek your face, O Lord.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
the world, and those who dwell in it.
It is he who set it on the seas;
on the rivers he made it firm.

Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
The clean of hands and pure of heart,
whose soul is not set on vain things.

Blessings from the Lord shall he receive,
and right reward from the God who saves him.
Such are the people who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

R/. These are the people who seek your face, O Lord.


Second Reading: 1 John 3:1-3

A reading from the First Letter of Saint John.

Brothers and sisters:

See what love the Father has given us,
that we should be called children of God;
and so we are.
The reason why the world does not know us
is that it did not know him.
Beloved, we are God’s children now;
it does not yet appear what we shall be,
but we know that when he appears we shall be like him,
for we shall see him as he is.
And everyone who thus hopes in him
purifies himself as he is pure.

The Word of the Lord.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, says the Lord.


Gospel: Matthew 5:1-12a

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time:
Seeing the crowds, Jesus went up on the mountain,
and when he sat down his disciples came to him.
And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

“Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God.

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you
and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad,
for your reward is great in heaven.”

The Gospel of the Lord.


Communion Antiphon.

Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
