Tuesday in the Fourteenth Week of OT – Year II

Readings on p. 1026 and Antiphons on p. 1015 of the Daily Missal.

First Reading: Hosea 8:4-7.11-13

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Hosea.

Thus says the Lord: 
Israel made kings, but not through me. 
They set up princes, but without my knowledge. 
With their silver and gold, they made idols 
for their own destruction. 
I have spurned your calf, O Samaria. 
My anger burns against them. 
How long will it be 
till they are pure in Israel?

A workman made it; 
it is not God. 
The calf of Samaria 
shall be broken to pieces.
For they sow the wind, 
and they shall reap the whirlwind. 
The standing grain has no heads, 
it shall yield no meal; 
if it were to yield, 
aliens would devour it.

Because Ephraim has multiplied altars for sinning, 
they have become to him altars for sinning. 
Were I to write for him my laws by ten thousands, 
they would be regarded as a strange thing. 
They love sacrifice; 
they sacrifice flesh and eat it, 
but the Lord has no delight in them. 
Now he will remember their iniquity, 
and punish their sins; 
they shall return to Egypt.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 115:3-4.5-6.7ab & 8.9-10 (R. 9a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. House of Israel, trust in the Lord.

But our God is in the heavens;
he does whatever he wills.
Their idols are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
They have mouths but they cannot speak;
they have eyes but they cannot see.
They have ears but they cannot hear;
they have nostrils but they cannot smell.

They have hands but they cannot feel;
they have feet but they cannot walk.
Their makers will come to be like them,
as will all who trust in them. House of Israel, trust in the Lord;
he is their help and their shield.
House of Aaron, trust in the Lord;
he is their help and their shield.

R/. House of Israel, trust in the Lord.

Alleluia, Alleluia. 
I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; 
I know my own, and my own know me.

Gospel: Matthew 9:32-38

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time: 
Behold, a mute demoniac was brought to Jesus. 
And when the demon had been cast out, 
the mute man spoke; 
and the crowds marvelled, saying, 
“Never was anything like this seen in Israel.”
But the Pharisees said, 
“He casts out demons by the prince of demons.”

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, 
teaching in their synagogues 
and preaching the gospel of the kingdom,
and healing every disease and every infirmity. 
When he 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.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
