The 16th of June, 2022 is Thursday in the Eleventh Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2022 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: SIR 48:1-14

The first reading from The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach or Ecclesiasticus.

Then Elijah arose, the prophet like fire. His word burned like a torch.

He brought a famine upon them, and by his zeal made them few in number.

By the word of the Lord he shut up the heavens. He brought down fire three times.

How you were glorified, O Elijah, in your wondrous deeds! Whose glory is like yours?

You raised up a dead man from death, from Hades, by the word of the Most High.

You brought down kings to destruction, and honorable men from their sickbeds.

You heard rebuke in Sinai, and judgments of vengeance in Horeb.

You anointed kings for retribution, and prophets to succeed after you.

You were taken up in a tempest of fire, in a chariot of fiery horses.

You were recorded for reproofs in their seasons, to pacify anger, before it broke out into wrath, to turn the heart of the father to the son, and to restore the tribes of Jacob.

Blessed are those who saw you, and those who have been beautified with love; for we also shall surely live.

Elijah was wrapped in a whirlwind. Elisha was filled with his spirit. In his days he was not moved by the fear of any ruler, and no one brought him into subjection.

Nothing was too hard for him. When he was buried, his body prophesied.

As in his life he did wonders, so his works were also marvelous in death.

Gospel of the Day: MT 6:7-15

From the gospel verse according to Matthew.

“In praying, don’t use vain repetitions as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking.

Therefore don’t be like them, for your Father knows what things you need before you ask him.

Pray like this: “‘Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.

Let your Kingdom come. Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors.

Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.’_”

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you don’t forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”_”
