The 16th of August, 2022 is Tuesday in the Twentieth Week of Ordinary Time. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar of the Year 2022.

Reading 1: EZ 28:1-10

The first reading from the Book of Ezekiel.

Yahweh’s word came again to me, saying, “Son of man, tell the prince of Tyre, ‘The Lord Yahweh says: “Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, ‘I am a god, I sit in the seat of God, in the middle of the seas;’ yet you are man, and no god, though you set your heart as the heart of a god-behold, you are wiser than Daniel. There is no secret that is hidden from you.

By your wisdom and by your understanding you have gotten yourself riches, and have gotten gold and silver into your treasuries.

By your great wisdom and by your trading you have increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches-_”_’_” “‘therefore the Lord Yahweh says: “Because you have set your heart as the heart of God, therefore, behold, I will bring strangers on you, the terrible of the nations. They will draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom. They will defile your brightness.

They will bring you down to the pit. You will die the death of those who are slain in the heart of the seas.

Will you yet say before him who kills you, ‘I am God’? But you are man, and not God, in the hand of him who wounds you.

You will die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers; for I have spoken it,” says the Lord Yahweh.’_”

Responsorial Psalm: DT 32:26-27AB, 27CD-28, 30, 35CD-36AB

Response: “I kill and I make alive.”

“I said that I would scatter them afar. I would make their memory to cease from among men; were it not that I feared the provocation of the enemy, lest their adversaries should judge wrongly.”

R: “I kill and I make alive.”

“Lest they should say, ‘Our hand is exalted; Yahweh has not done all this.’_”

For they are a nation void of counsel. There is no understanding in them.

R: “I kill and I make alive.”

How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and Yahweh had delivered them up?

R: “I kill and I make alive.”

“For the day of their calamity is at hand. Their doom rushes at them.”

For Yahweh will judge his people, and have compassion on his servants.

R: “I kill and I make alive.”

Gospel of the Day: MT 19:23-30

From the gospel scripture according to Matthew.

Jesus said to his disciples, “Most certainly I say to you, a rich man will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven with difficulty.

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to enter into God’s Kingdom.”

When the disciples heard it, they were exceedingly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”

Looking at them, Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Then Peter answered, “Behold, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?”

Jesus said to them, “Most certainly I tell you that you who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on the throne of his glory, you also will sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Everyone who has left houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive one hundred times, and will inherit eternal life.

But many will be last who are first, and first who are last.”
