    1 Kgs 19:19-21

    Elijah set out, and came upon Elisha, son of Shaphat,
    as he was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen;
    he was following the twelfth.
    Elijah went over to him and threw his cloak over him.
    Elisha left the oxen, ran after Elijah, and said,
    "Please, let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,
    and I will follow you."
    Elijah answered, "Go back!
    Have I done anything to you?"
    Elisha left him and, taking the yoke of oxen, slaughtered them;
    he used the plowing equipment for fuel to boil their flesh,
    and gave it to his people to eat.
    Then he left and followed Elijah as his attendant.


    Psalms 96:10, 11-12, 13

    R. (see 5a) You are my inheritance, O Lord.
    Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;
    I say to the LORD, "My Lord are you."
    O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
    you it is who hold fast my lot.
    R. You are my inheritance, O Lord.
    I bless the LORD who counsels me;
    even in the night my heart exhorts me.
    I set the LORD ever before me;
    with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
    R. You are my inheritance, O Lord.
    Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
    my body, too, abides in confidence;
    Because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
    nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.
    R. You are my inheritance, O Lord.


    Luke 2:41-51

    Each year Jesus' parents went to Jerusalem for the feast of Passover,
    and when he was twelve years old,
    they went up according to festival custom.
    After they had completed its days, as they were returning,
    the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem,
    but his parents did not know it.
    Thinking that he was in the caravan,
    they journeyed for a day
    and looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances,
    but not finding him,
    they returned to Jerusalem to look for him.
    After three days they found him in the temple,
    sitting in the midst of the teachers,
    listening to them and asking them questions,
    and all who heard him were astounded
    at his understanding and his answers.
    When his parents saw him,
    they were astonished,
    and his mother said to him,
    "Son, why have you done this to us?
    Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety."
    And he said to them,
    "Why were you looking for me?
    Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?"
    But they did not understand what he said to them.
    He went down with them and came to Nazareth,
    and was obedient to them;
    and his mother kept all these things in her heart.


    Ordinary Time.


    Lam 2:2, 10-14, 18-19

    The Lord has consumed without pity
    all the dwellings of Jacob;
    He has torn down in his anger
    the fortresses of daughter Judah;
    He has brought to the ground in dishonor
    her king and her princes.

    On the ground in silence sit
    the old men of daughter Zion;
    They strew dust on their heads
    and gird themselves with sackcloth;
    The maidens of Jerusalem
    bow their heads to the ground.

    Worn out from weeping are my eyes,
    within me all is in ferment;
    My gall is poured out on the ground
    because of the downfall of the daughter of my people,
    As child and infant faint away
    in the open spaces of the town.

    In vain they ask their mothers,
    "Where is the grain?"
    As they faint away like the wounded
    in the streets of the city,
    And breathe their last
    in their mothers' arms.

    To what can I liken or compare you,
    O daughter Jerusalem?
    What example can I show you for your comfort,
    virgin daughter Zion?
    For great as the sea is your downfall;
    who can heal you?

    Your prophets had for you
    false and specious visions;
    They did not lay bare your guilt,
    to avert your fate;
    They beheld for you in vision
    false and misleading portents.

    Cry out to the Lord;
    moan, O daughter Zion!
    Let your tears flow like a torrent
    day and night;
    Let there be no respite for you,
    no repose for your eyes.

    Rise up, shrill in the night,
    at the beginning of every watch;
    Pour out your heart like water
    in the presence of the Lord;
    Lift up your hands to him
    for the lives of your little ones
    Who faint from hunger
    at the corner of every street.


    Ps 74:1b-2, 3-5, 6-7, 20-21

    R. (19b) Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.
    Why, O God, have you cast us off forever?
    Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?
    Remember your flock which you built up of old,
    the tribe you redeemed as your inheritance,
    Mount Zion, where you took up your abode.
    R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.
    Turn your steps toward the utter ruins;
    toward all the damage the enemy has done in the sanctuary.
    Your foes roar triumphantly in your shrine;
    they have set up their tokens of victory.
    They are like men coming up with axes to a clump of trees.
    R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.
    With chisel and hammer they hack at all the paneling of the sanctuary.
    They set your sanctuary on fire;
    the place where your name abides they have razed and profaned.
    R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.
    Look to your covenant,
    for the hiding places in the land and the plains are full of violence.
    May the humble not retire in confusion;
    may the afflicted and the poor praise your name.
    R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.


    Mt 8:5-17

    When Jesus entered Capernaum,
    a centurion approached him and appealed to him, saying,
    "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, suffering dreadfully."
    He said to him, "I will come and cure him."
    The centurion said in reply,
    "Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof;
    only say the word and my servant will be healed.
    For I too am a man subject to authority,
    with soldiers subject to me.
    And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes;
    and to another, 'Come here,' and he comes;
    and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it."
    When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him,
    "Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith.
    I say to you, many will come from the east and the west,
    and will recline with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
    at the banquet in the Kingdom of heaven,
    but the children of the Kingdom
    will be driven out into the outer darkness,
    where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth."
    And Jesus said to the centurion,
    "You may go;as you have believed, let it be done for you."
    And at that very hour his servant was healed.

    Jesus entered the house of Peter,
    and saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.
    He touched her hand, the fever left her,
    and she rose and waited on him.

    When it was evening, they brought him many
    who were possessed by demons,
    and he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick,
    to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet:

    He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.
