Reading 1: IS 30:19-21, 23-26

The first reading from the Book of Isaiah.

For the people will dwell in Zion at Jerusalem. You will weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the voice of your cry. When he hears you, he will answer you.

Though the Lord may give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your teachers won’t be hidden any more, but your eyes will see your teachers; and when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way. Walk in it.”

He will give the rain for your seed, with which you will sow the ground; and bread of the increase of the ground will be rich and plentiful. In that day, your livestock will feed in large pastures.

The oxen likewise and the young donkeys that till the ground will eat savory feed, which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fork.

There will be brooks and streams of water on every lofty mountain and on every high hill in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.

Moreover the light of the moon will be like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, in the day that Yahweh binds up the fracture of his people, and heals the wound they were struck with.

Gospel of the Day: MT 9:35-10:1, 5A, 6-8

From the gospel verse according to Matthew.

Jesus went about all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the Good News of the Kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people.

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them because they were harassed and scattered, like sheep without a shepherd.

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest indeed is plentiful, but the laborers are few.

Pray therefore that the Lord of the harvest will send out laborers into his harvest.”

He called to himself his twelve disciples, and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every sickness.

Jesus sent these twelve out and commanded them, saying, “Go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

As you go, preach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!’

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, and cast out demons. Freely you received, so freely give.”
