Reading 1: BAR 1:15-22

The first reading from the Book of Baruch.

You shall say: To the Lord our God belongs righteousness, but to us confusion of face, as at this day-to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to our kings, to our princes, to our priests, to our prophets, and to our fathers, because we have sinned before the Lord.

We have disobeyed him and have not listened to the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in the commandments of the Lord that he has set before us.

Since the day that the Lord brought our fathers out of the land of Egypt to this present day, we have been disobedient to the Lord our God, and we have been negligent in not listening to his voice.

Therefore the plagues have clung to us, along with the curse which the Lord declared through Moses his servant in the day that he brought our fathers out of the land of Egypt to give us a land that flows with milk and honey, as at this day.

Nevertheless we didn’t listen to the voice of the Lord our God, according to all the words of the prophets whom he sent to us, but we each walked in the imagination of his own wicked heart, to serve strange gods and to do what is evil in the sight of the Lord our God.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 79:1-2, 3-5, 8, 9

Response: Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake.

God, the nations have come into your inheritance. They have defiled your holy temple. They have laid Jerusalem in heaps.

They have given the dead bodies of your servants to be food for the birds of the sky, the flesh of your saints to the animals of the earth.

R: Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake.

They have shed their blood like water around Jerusalem. There was no one to bury them.

We have become a reproach to our neighbors, a scoffing and derision to those who are around us.

How long, Yahweh? Will you be angry forever? Will your jealousy burn like fire?

R: Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake.

Don’t hold the iniquities of our forefathers against us. Let your tender mercies speedily meet us, for we are in desperate need.

R: Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake.

Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake.

R: Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake.

Gospel of the Day: LK 10:13-16

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you.

You, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades.

Whoever listens to you listens to me, and whoever rejects you rejects me. Whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
