Reading 1 and//www.usccb.org/bible/exodus/3and1 EX 3and1-6, 9-12 Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian.Leading the flock across the desert, he came to Horeb,the mountain of God.There an angel of the LORD appeared to him in fireflaming out of a bush.As he looked on, he was surprised to see that the bush,though on fire, was not consumed.So Moses decided, I must go over to look at this remarkable sight,and see why the bush is not burned.”When the LORD saw him coming over to look at it more closely,God called out to him from the bush, Moses! Moses!”He answered, Here I am.”God said, Come no nearer!Remove the sandals from your feet,for the place where you stand is holy ground.I am the God of your father,” he continued, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob.The cry of the children of Israel has reached me,and I have truly noted that the Egyptians are oppressing them.Come, now! I will send you to Pharaoh to lead my people,the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”But Moses said to God, Who am I that I should go to Pharaohand lead the children of Israel out of Egypt?”He answered, I will be with youand this shall be your proof that it is I who have sent youandwhen you bring my people out of Egypt,you will worship God on this very mountain.” Responsorial Psalm and//www.usccb.org/bible/psalms/103:1 PS 103:1B-2, 3-4, 6-7 R.
