Reading 1 and//usccb.org/bible/isaiah/35and1 IS 35and1-10 The desert and the parched land will exultthe steppe will rejoice and bloom.They will bloom with abundant flowers,and rejoice with joyful song.The glory of Lebanon will be given to them,the splendor of Carmel and SharonThey will see the glory of the LORD,the splendor of our God.Strengthen the hands that are feeble,make firm the knees that are weak,Say to those whose hearts are frightenedandBe strong, fear not!Here is your God,he comes with vindicationWith divine recompensehe comes to save you.Then will the eyes of the blind be opened,the ears of the deaf be clearedThen will the lame leap like a stag,then the tongue of the mute will sing.Streams will burst forth in the desert,and rivers in the steppe.The burning sands will become pools,and the thirsty ground, springs of waterThe abode where jackals lurkwill be a marsh for the reed and papyrus.A highway will be there,called the holy wayNo one unclean may pass over it,nor fools go astray on it.No lion will be there,nor beast of prey go up to be met upon it.It is for those with a journey to make,and on it the redeemed will walk.Those whom the LORD has ransomed will returnand enter Zion singing,crowned with everlasting joyThey will meet with joy and gladness,sorrow and mourning will flee. Responsorial Psalm and//usccb.org/bible/psalms/85and9 PS 85and9AB AND 10, 11-12, 13-14 R. Our God will come to save us! I will hear what God proclaimsthe LORD –for he proclaims peace to his people.Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,glory dwelling in our land. R.Our God will come to save us! Kindness and truth shall meetjustice and peace shall kiss.Truth shall spring out of the earth,and justice shall look down from heaven. R.Our God will come to save us! The LORD himself will give his benefitsour land shall yield its increase.Justice shall walk before him,and salvation, along the way of his steps. R.Our God will come to save us! Alleluia R.Alleluia, alleluia.Behold the king will come, the Lord of the earth,and he himself will lift the yoke of our captivity.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and//usccb.org/bible/luke/5:17 LK 5:17-26 One day as Jesus was teaching,Pharisees and teachers of the law,who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem,were sitting there,and the power of the Lord was with him for healing.And some men brought on a stretcher a man who was paralyzedthey were trying to bring him in and set him in his presence.But not finding a way to bring him in because of the crowd,they went up on the roofand lowered him on the stretcher through the tilesinto the middle in front of Jesus.When Jesus saw their faith, he said, As for you, your sins are forgiven.”Then the scribes and Pharisees began to ask themselves, Who is this who speaks blasphemies?Who but God alone can forgive sins?”Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them in reply, What are you thinking in your hearts?Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’or to say, ‘Rise and walk’?But that you may knowthat the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”–he said to the one who was paralyzed, I say to you, rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home.”He stood up immediately before them,picked up what he had been lying on,and went home, glorifying God.Then astonishment seized them all and they glorified God,and, struck with awe, they said, We have seen incredible things today.”
