Daily Gospel Reading for July 16, 2022 – Saturday in the Fifteenth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

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

Reading 1: MI 2:1-5

The first reading from the Book of Micah.

Woe to those who devise iniquity and work evil on their beds! When the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand.

They covet fields and seize them, and houses, then take them away. They oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

Therefore Yahweh says: “Behold, I am planning against these people a disaster, from which you will not remove your necks, neither will you walk haughtily, for it is an evil time.

In that day they will take up a parable against you, and lament with a doleful lamentation, saying, ‘We are utterly ruined! My people’s possession is divided up. Indeed he takes it from me and assigns our fields to traitors!’_”

Therefore you will have no one who divides the land by lot in Yahweh’s assembly.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 10:1-2, 3-4, 7-8, 14

Response: Don’t forget the helpless.

Why do you stand far off, Yahweh? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In arrogance, the wicked hunt down the weak. They are caught in the schemes that they devise.

R: Don’t forget the helpless.

For the wicked boasts of his heart’s cravings. He blesses the greedy and condemns Yahweh.

The wicked, in the pride of his face, has no room in his thoughts for God.

R: Don’t forget the helpless.

His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and oppression. Under his tongue is mischief and iniquity.

He lies in wait near the villages. From ambushes, he murders the innocent. His eyes are secretly set against the helpless.

R: Don’t forget the helpless.

But you do see trouble and grief. You consider it to take it into your hand. You help the victim and the fatherless.

R: Don’t forget the helpless.

Gospel of the Day: MT 12:14-21

From the gospel verse according to Matthew.

But the Pharisees went out and conspired against him, how they might destroy him.

Jesus, perceiving that, withdrew from there. Great multitudes followed him; and he healed them all, and commanded them that they should not make him known, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, “Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my Spirit on him. He will proclaim justice to the nations.

He will not strive, nor shout, neither will anyone hear his voice in the streets.

He won’t break a bruised reed. He won’t quench a smoking flax, until he leads justice to victory.

In his name, the nations will hope.”

An optional celebration on this day is the Memorial of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
