Reading 1 and//usccb.org/bible/amos/8and4 AM 8and4-6, 9-12 Hear this, you who trample upon the needyand destroy the poor of the land! When will the new moon be over,” you ask, that we may sell our grain,and the sabbath, that we may display the wheat?”We will diminish the containers for measuring,add to the weights,and fix our scales for cheating!We will buy the lowly man for silver,and the poor man for a pair of sandalseven the refuse of the wheat we will sell!”On that day, says the Lord GOD,I will make the sun set at middayand cover the earth with darkness in broad daylight.I will turn your feasts into mourningand all your songs into lamentations.I will cover the loins of all with sackclothand make every head bald.I will make them mourn as for an only son,and bring their day to a bitter end.Yes, days are coming, says the Lord GOD,when I will send famine upon the landandNot a famine of bread, or thirst for water,but for hearing the word of the LORD.Then shall they wander from sea to seaand rove from the north to the eastIn search of the word of the LORD,but they shall not find it. Responsorial Psalm and//usccb.org/bible/psalms/119:2 PS 119:2, 10, 20, 30, 40, 131 R. (Matthew 4and4)One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.Blessed are they who observe his decrees,who seek him with all their heart.R.One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.With all my heart I seek youlet me not stray from your commands.R.One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.My soul is consumed with longingfor your ordinances at all times.R.One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.The way of truth I have chosenI have set your ordinances before me.R.One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.Behold, I long for your preceptsin your justice give me life.R.One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.I gasp with open mouthin my yearning for your commands.R.One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. Alleluia and//usccb.org/bible/matthew/11:28 MT 11:28 R.Alleluia, alleluia.Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,and I will give you rest, says the Lord.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and//usccb.org/bible/matthew/9and9 MT 9and9-13 As Jesus passed by,he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post.He said to him, Follow me.”And he got up and followed him.While he was at table in his house,many tax collectors and sinners cameand sat with Jesus and his disciples.The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”He heard this and said, Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.Go and learn the meaning of the words,I desire mercy, not sacrifice.I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
