Reading 1 and// EX 33and7-11 34and5B-9, 28 The tent, which was called the meeting tent,Moses used to pitch at some distance away, outside the camp.Anyone who wished to consult the LORDwould go to this meeting tent outside the camp.Whenever Moses went out to the tent, the people would all riseand stand at the entrance of their own tents,watching Moses until he entered the tent.As Moses entered the tent, the column of cloud would come downand stand at its entrance while the LORD spoke with Moses.On seeing the column of cloud stand at the entrance of the tent,all the people would rise and worshipat the entrance of their own tents.The LORD used to speak to Moses face to face,as one man speaks to another.Moses would then return to the camp,but his young assistant, Joshua, son of Nun,would not move out of the tent.Moses stood there with the LORD and proclaimed his name, LORD.”Thus the LORD passed before him and cried out, The LORD, the LORD, a merciful and gracious God,slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity,continuing his kindness for a thousand generations,and forgiving wickedness and crime and sinyet not declaring the guilty guiltless,but punishing children and grandchildrento the third and fourth generation for their fathers’ wickedness!”Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship.Then he said, If I find favor with you, O LORD,do come along in our company.This is indeed a stiff-necked peopleyet pardon our wickedness and sins,and receive us as your own.”So Moses stayed there with the LORD for forty days and forty nights,without eating any food or drinking any water,and he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant,the ten commandments. Responsorial Psalm and// PS 103:6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13 R. (8a)The Lord is kind and merciful.The LORD secures justiceand the rights of all the oppressed.He has made known his ways to Moses,and his deeds to the children of Israel.R.The Lord is kind and merciful.Merciful and gracious is the LORD,slow to anger and abounding in kindness.He will not always chide,nor does he keep his wrath forever.R.The Lord is kind and merciful.Not according to our sins does he deal with us,nor does he requite us according to our crimes.For as the heavens are high above the earth,so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.R.The Lord is kind and merciful.As far as the east is from the west,so far has he put our transgressions from us.As a father has compassion on his children,so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.R.The Lord is kind and merciful. Alleluia R.Alleluia, alleluia.The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sowerall who come to him will live for ever.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and// MT 13:36-43 Jesus dismissed the crowds and went into the house.His disciples approached him and said, Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”He said in reply, He who sows good seed is the Son of Man,the field is the world, the good seed the children of the Kingdom.The weeds are the children of the Evil One,and the enemy who sows them is the Devil.The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.Just as weeds are collected and burned up with fire,so will it be at the end of the age.The Son of Man will send his angels,and they will collect out of his Kingdomall who cause others to sin and all evildoers.They will throw them into the fiery furnace,where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.Then the righteous will shine like the sunin the Kingdom of their Father.Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
