Matthew 10:1-7

Wednesday, 6 July 2022


Wednesday in the Fourteenth Week of OT – Year II

Readings on p. 1028 and Antiphons on p. 1015 of the Daily Missal.

First Reading: Hosea 10:1-3.7-8.12

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Hosea.
Israel is a luxuriant vine 
that yields its fruit. 
The more his fruit increased 
the more altars he built; 
as his country improved 
he improved his pillars. 
Their heart is false; 
now they must bear their guilt. 
The Lord will break down their altars 
and destroy their pillars.

For now, they will say: 
“We have no king, 
for we fear not the Lord, 
and a king, what could he do for us?”
Samaria’s king shall perish, 
like a chip on the face of the waters. 
The high places of Aven, the sin of Israel, 
shall be destroyed.

Thorn and thistle shall grow up 
on their altars; 
and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us, 
and to the hills, Fall upon us.
Sow for yourselves righteousness, 
reap the fruit of mercy; 
break up your fallow ground, 
for it is the time to seek the Lord, 
that he may come and rain salvation upon you.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 105:2-3.4-5.6-7 (R. 4b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Constantly seek the Lord’s face.
O sing to him, sing his praise;
tell all his wonderful works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.
Turn to the Lord and his strength;
constantly seek his face.

Remember the wonders he has done,
his marvels and his words of judgment. O children of Abraham, his servant,
O descendants of the Jacob he chose,
he, the Lord, is our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.

R/. Constantly seek the Lord’s face.


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

Gospel: Matthew 10:1-7

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
At that time: 
Jesus 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.’

The Gospel of the Lord.
