Readings on p. 925 and Antiphons on p. 915 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; whom shall I dread? When those who do evil draw near, they stumble and fall.


First Reading: 1 Kings 17:7-16

A reading from the First Book of Kings.

In those days:
The brook, where Elijah was hiding, dried up
because there was no rain in the land.

Then the word of the Lord came to him,
“Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon,
and dwell there.
Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you.”

So he arose and went to Zarephath;
and when he came to the gate of the city,
behold, a widow was there gathering sticks;
and he called to her and said,
“Bring me a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.”
And as she was going to bring it,
he called to her and said,
“Bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.”

And she said, “As the Lord your God lives,
I have nothing baked,
only a handful of meal in a jar,
and a little oil in a pitcher;
and now, I am gathering a couple of sticks,
that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son,
that we may eat it, and die.”

And Elijah said to her, “Fear not;
go and do as you have said,
but first make me a little cake of it and bring it to me,
and afterwards make for yourself and your son.
For thus says the Lord the God of Israel,
‘The jar of meal shall not be spent,
and the pitcher of oil shall not fail,
until the day that the Lord sends rain upon the earth.’”

And she went and did as Elijah said,
and she, and he, and her household ate for many days.
The jar of meal was not spent,
neither did the pitcher of oil fail,
according to the word of the Lord
which he spoke by Elijah.

The Word of the Lord.






Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 4:2-3,4-5,7a and 8 (R.7b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Lift up the light of your face on us, O Lord

I called, the God of justice gave me answer,
from anguish you released me, have mercy and hear me!
Children of man, how long will my glory be dishonoured,
will you love what is futile and seek what is false?

Know that the Lord works wonders for his faithful one;
the Lord will hear me whenever I call him.
Tremble, do not sin; ponder on your bed and be still.

“What can bring us happiness?” many say.
You have put into my heart a greater joy
than abundance of grain and new wine can provide.

R/. Lift up the light of your face on us, O Lord


Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Let your light so shine before men
that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father.




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 saltiness 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.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God is my saving strength.
