Reading 1 and// GN 46and1-7, 28-30 Israel set out with all that was his.When he arrived at Beer-sheba,he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac.There God, speaking to Israel in a vision by night, called, Jacob! Jacob!”He answered, Here I am.”Then he saidand I am God, the God of your father.Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt,for there I will make you a great nation.Not only will I go down to Egypt with youI will also bring you back here, after Joseph has closed your eyes.”So Jacob departed from Beer-sheba,and the sons of Israelput their father and their wives and childrenon the wagons that Pharaoh had sent for his transport.They took with them their livestockand the possessions they had acquired in the land of Canaan.Thus Jacob and all his descendants migrated to Egypt.His sons and his grandsons, his daughters and his granddaughters—all his descendants—he took with him to Egypt.Israel had sent Judah ahead to Joseph,so that he might meet him in Goshen.On his arrival in the region of Goshen,Joseph hitched the horses to his chariotand rode to meet his father Israel in Goshen.As soon as Joseph saw him, he flung himself on his neckand wept a long time in his arms.And Israel said to Joseph, At last I can die,now that I have seen for myself that Joseph is still alive.” Responsorial Psalm and// PS 37and3-4, 18-19, 27-28, 39-40 R. (39a)The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.Trust in the LORD and do good,that you may dwell in the land and be fed in security.Take delight in the LORD,and he will grant you your heart’s requests.R.The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.The LORD watches over the lives of the wholeheartedtheir inheritance lasts forever.They are not put to shame in an evil timein days of famine they have plenty.R.The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.Turn from evil and do good,that you may abide foreverFor the LORD loves what is right,and forsakes not his faithful ones.R.The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.The salvation of the just is from the LORDhe is their refuge in time of distress.And the LORD helps them and delivers themhe delivers them from the wicked and saves them,because they take refuge in him.R.The salvation of the just comes from the Lord. Alleluia and// JN 16:13A 14:26D R.Alleluia, alleluia.When the Spirit of truth comes,he will guide you to all truthand remind you of all I told you.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and// MT 10:16-23 Jesus said to his Apostlesand Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolvesso be shrewd as serpents and simple as doves.But beware of men,for they will hand you over to courtsand scourge you in their synagogues,and you will be led before governors and kings for my sakeas a witness before them and the pagans.When they hand you over,do not worry about how you are to speakor what you are to say.You will be given at that moment what you are to say.For it will not be you who speakbut the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.Brother will hand over brother to death,and the father his childchildren will rise up against parents and have them put to death.You will be hated by all because of my name,but whoever endures to the end will be saved.When they persecute you in one town, flee to another.Amen, I say to you, you will not finish the towns of Israelbefore the Son of Man comes.”
