  • Saint Matthew the Evangelist, Apostle, Evangelist 2022:


    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 30:5-9

    Every word of God is tested;
    he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
    Add nothing to his words,
    lest he reprove you, and you will be exposed as a deceiver.

    Two things I ask of you,
    deny them not to me before I die:
    Put falsehood and lying far from me,
    give me neither poverty nor riches;
    provide me only with the food I need;
    Lest, being full, I deny you,
    saying, "Who is the LORD?"
    Or, being in want, I steal,
    and profane the name of my God.


    Ps 119:29, 72, 89, 101, 104, 163

    R. (105) Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Remove from me the way of falsehood,
    and favor me with your law.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    The law of your mouth is to me more precious
    than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Your word, O LORD, endures forever;
    it is firm as the heavens.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    From every evil way I withhold my feet,
    that I may keep your words.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Through your precepts I gain discernment;
    therefore I hate every false way.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Falsehood I hate and abhor;
    your law I love.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.


    Lk 9:1-6

    Jesus summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority
    over all demons and to cure diseases,
    and he sent them to proclaim the Kingdom of God
    and to heal the sick.
    He said to them, "Take nothing for the journey,
    neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money,
    and let no one take a second tunic.
    Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.
    And as for those who do not welcome you,
    when you leave that town,
    shake the dust from your feet in testimony against them."
    Then they set out and went from village to village
    proclaiming the Good News and curing diseases everywhere.
