Reading 1 and// IS 1:10-17 Hear the word of the LORD,princes of Sodom!Listen to the instruction of our God,people of Gomorrah!What care I for the number of your sacrifices?says the LORD.I have had enough of whole-burnt ramsand fat of fatlingsIn the blood of calves, lambs and goatsI find no pleasure.When you come in to visit me,who asks these things of you?Trample my courts no more!Bring no more worthless offeringsyour incense is loathsome to me.New moon and sabbath, calling of assemblies,octaves with wickednessand these I cannot bear.Your new moons and festivals I detestthey weigh me down, I tire of the load.When you spread out your hands,I close my eyes to youThough you pray the more,I will not listen.Your hands are full of blood!Wash yourselves clean!Put away your misdeeds from before my eyescease doing evil learn to do good.Make justice your aimand redress the wronged,hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow. Responsorial Psalm and// PS 50and8-9, 16BC-17, 21 AND 23 R. (23b)To the upright I will show the saving power of God. Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you,for your burnt offerings are before me always.I take from your house no bullock,no goats out of your fold.”R.To the upright I will show the saving power of God. Why do you recite my statutes,and profess my covenant with your mouth,Though you hate disciplineand cast my words behind you?”R.To the upright I will show the saving power of God. When you do these things, shall I be deaf to it?Or do you think you that I am like yourself?I will correct you by drawing them up before your eyes.He that offers praise as a sacrifice glorifies meand to him that goes the right way I will show the salvation of God.”R.To the upright I will show the saving power of God. Alleluia and// MT 5:10 R.Alleluia, alleluia.Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and// MT 10:34-11:1 Jesus said to his Apostlesand Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth.I have come to bring not peace but the sword.For I have come to seta man against his father,a daughter against her mother,and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-lawand one’s enemies will be those of his household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me,and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of meand whoever does not take up his crossand follow after me is not worthy of me.Whoever finds his life will lose it,and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. Whoever receives you receives me,and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.Whoever receives a prophet because he is a prophetwill receive a prophet’s reward,and whoever receives a righteous manbecause he is righteouswill receive a righteous man’s reward.And whoever gives only a cup of cold waterto one of these little ones to drinkbecause he is a disciple–amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward.”When Jesus finished giving these commands to his Twelve disciples,he went away from that place to teach and to preach in their towns.
