The 9th of August, 2022 is Tuesday in the Nineteenth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2022 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: EZ 2:8-3:4

The first reading from the Book of Ezekiel.

“But you, son of man, hear what I tell you. Don’t be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth, and eat that which I give you.”

When I looked, behold, a hand was stretched out to me; and behold, a scroll of a book was in it.

He spread it before me. It was written within and without; and lamentations, mourning, and woe were written in it.

He said to me, “Son of man, eat what you find. Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.”

So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat the scroll.

He said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your belly and your bowels with it.” Then I ate it. It was as sweet as honey in my mouth.

He said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Israel, and speak my words to them.”

Gospel of the Day: MT 18:1-5, 10, 12-14

From the gospel verse according to Matthew.

In that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?”

Jesus called a little child to himself, and set him in the middle of them and said, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you turn and become as little children, you will in no way enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Whoever therefore humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Whoever receives one such little child in my name receives me.”

“See that you don’t despise one of these little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.”

“What do you think? If a man has one hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine, go to the mountains, and seek that which has gone astray? 13If he finds it, most certainly I tell you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine which have not gone astray.

Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”

Other Celebration

An optional celebration on this day is the Memorial of Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Virgin and Martyr.
