    Sirach 50:1, 3-4, 6-7

    1The leader of his brethren and the pride of his people was Simon the high priest, son of Onias, who in his life repaired the house, and in his time fortified the temple. 3In his days a cistern for water was quarried out, a reservoir like the sea in circumference. 4He considered how to save his people from ruin, and fortified the city to withstand a seige. 6Like the morning star among the clouds, like the moon when it is full;7like the sun shining upon the temple of the Most High, and like the rainbow gleaming in glorious clouds;


    Psalms 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 11

    1Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge. 2I say to the LORD, "Thou art my Lord;I have no good apart from thee." 5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;thou holdest my lot. 7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;in the night also my heart instructs me. 8I keep the LORD always before me;because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 11Thou dost show me the path of life;in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.


    Galatians 6:14-18

    14But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule, upon the Israel of God. 17Henceforth let no man trouble me;for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. 18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen.


    Matthew 11:25-30

    25At that time Jesus declared, "I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes;26yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will. 27All things have been delivered to me by my Father;and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."


    Ordinary Time.


    Jb 42:1-3, 5-6, 12-17

    Job answered the LORD and said:

    I know that you can do all things,
    and that no purpose of yours can be hindered.
    I have dealt with great things that I do not understand;
    things too wonderful for me, which I cannot know.
    I had heard of you by word of mouth,
    but now my eye has seen you.
    Therefore I disown what I have said,
    and repent in dust and ashes.

    Thus the LORD blessed the latter days of Job
    more than his earlier ones.
    For he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels,
    a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-asses.
    And he had seven sons and three daughters,
    of whom he called the first Jemimah,
    the second Keziah, and the third Kerenhappuch.
    In all the land no other women were as beautiful
    as the daughters of Job;
    and their father gave them an inheritance
    along with their brothers.
    After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years;
    and he saw his children, his grandchildren,
    and even his great-grandchildren.
    Then Job died, old and full of years.


    Ps 119:66, 71, 75, 91, 125, 130

    R. (135) Lord, let your face shine on me.
    Teach me wisdom and knowledge,
    for in your commands I trust.
    R. Lord, let your face shine on me.
    It is good for me that I have been afflicted,
    that I may learn your statutes.
    R. Lord, let your face shine on me.
    I know, O LORD, that your ordinances are just,
    and in your faithfulness you have afflicted me.
    R. Lord, let your face shine on me.
    According to your ordinances they still stand firm:
    all things serve you.
    R. Lord, let your face shine on me.
    I am your servant;give me discernment
    that I may know your decrees.
    R. Lord, let your face shine on me.
    The revelation of your words sheds light,
    giving understanding to the simple.
    R. Lord, let your face shine on me.


    Lk 10:17-24

    The seventy-two disciples returned rejoicing and said to Jesus,
    "Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name."
    Jesus said, "I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky.
    Behold, I have given you the power
    'to tread upon serpents' and scorpions
    and upon the full force of the enemy
    and nothing will harm you.
    Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you,
    but rejoice because your names are written in heaven."

    At that very moment he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
    "I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
    for although you have hidden these things
    from the wise and the learned
    you have revealed them to the childlike.
    Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
    All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
    No one knows who the Son is except the Father,
    and who the Father is except the Son
    and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him."

    Turning to the disciples in private he said,
    "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
    For I say to you,
    many prophets and kings desired to see what you see,
    but did not see it,
    and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it."
