  • Saint Matthew the Evangelist, Apostle, Evangelist 2020:


    Eph 4:1-7, 11-13

    Brothers and sisters:
    I, a prisoner for the Lord,
    urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,
    with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
    bearing with one another through love,
    striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit
    through the bond of peace:
    one Body and one Spirit,
    as you were also called to the one hope of your call;
    one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
    one God and Father of all,
    who is over all and through all and in all.

    But grace was given to each of us
    according to the measure of Christ's gift.

    And he gave some as Apostles, others as prophets,
    others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers,
    to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry,
    for building up the Body of Christ,
    until we all attain to the unity of faith
    and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood,
    to the extent of the full stature of Christ.


    Ps 19:2-3, 4-5

    R. (5) Their message goes out through all the earth.
    The heavens declare the glory of God;
    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    Day pours out the word to day,
    and night to night imparts knowledge.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
    Not a word nor a discourse
    whose voice is not heard;
    Through all the earth their voice resounds,
    and to the ends of the world, their message.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.


    Mt 9:9-13

    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 came
    and 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."


    Ordinary Time.


    Prv 3:27-34

    Refuse no one the good on which he has a claim
    when it is in your power to do it for him.
    Say not to your neighbor, "Go, and come again,
    tomorrow I will give," when you can give at once.

    Plot no evil against your neighbor,
    against one who lives at peace with you.
    Quarrel not with a man without cause,
    with one who has done you no harm.

    Envy not the lawless man
    and choose none of his ways:
    To the LORD the perverse one is an abomination,
    but with the upright is his friendship.

    The curse of the LORD is on the house of the wicked,
    but the dwelling of the just he blesses;
    When dealing with the arrogant, he is stern,
    but to the humble he shows kindness.


    Ps 15:2-3a, 3bc-4ab, 5

    R. (1) The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
    He who walks blamelessly and does justice;
    who thinks the truth in his heart
    and slanders not with his tongue.
    R. The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
    Who harms not his fellow man,
    nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
    By whom the reprobate is despised,
    while he honors those who fear the LORD.
    R. The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
    Who lends not his money at usury
    and accepts no bribe against the innocent.
    He who does these things
    shall never be disturbed.
    R. The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.


    Lk 8:16-18

    Jesus said to the crowd:
    "No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel
    or sets it under a bed;
    rather, he places it on a lampstand
    so that those who enter may see the light.
    For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible,
    and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.
    Take care, then, how you hear.
    To anyone who has, more will be given,
    and from the one who has not,
    even what he seems to have will be taken away."
