    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.


    is 5:1-7

    Let me now sing of my friend,
    my friend's song concerning his vineyard.
    My friend had a vineyard
    on a fertile hillside;
    he spaded it, cleared it of stones,
    and planted the choicest vines;
    within it he built a watchtower,
    and hewed out a wine press.
    Then he looked for the crop of grapes,
    but what it yielded was wild grapes.
    Now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and people of Judah,
    judge between me and my vineyard:
    What more was there to do for my vineyard
    that I had not done?
    Why, when I looked for the crop of grapes,
    did it bring forth wild grapes?
    Now, I will let you know
    what I mean to do with my vineyard:
    take away its hedge, give it to grazing,
    break through its wall, let it be trampled!
    Yes, I will make it a ruin:
    it shall not be pruned or hoed,
    but overgrown with thorns and briers;
    I will command the clouds
    not to send rain upon it.
    The vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel,
    and the people of Judah are his cherished plant;
    he looked for judgment, but see, bloodshed!
    for justice, but hark, the outcry!


    ps 80:9, 12, 13-14, 15-16, 19-20

    R/ (Is 5:7a)
    The vineyard of the Lord is the house of Israel.
    A vine from Egypt you transplanted;
    you drove away the nations and planted it.
    It put forth its foliage to the Sea,
    its shoots as far as the River.
    The vineyard of the Lord is the house of Israel.
    Why have you broken down its walls,
    so that every passer-by plucks its fruit,
    The boar from the forest lays it waste,
    and the beasts of the field feed upon it?
    The vineyard of the Lord is the house of Israel.
    Once again, O LORD of hosts,
    look down from heaven, and see;
    take care of this vine,
    and protect what your right hand has planted
    the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
    The vineyard of the Lord is the house of Israel.
    Then we will no more withdraw from you;
    give us new life, and we will call upon your name.
    O LORD, God of hosts, restore us;
    if your face shine upon us, then we shall be saved.
    The vineyard of the Lord is the house of Israel.


    phil 4:6-9

    Brothers and sisters:
    Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
    by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
    make your requests known to God.
    Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
    will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
    Finally, brothers and sisters,
    whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
    whatever is just, whatever is pure,
    whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,
    if there is any excellence
    and if there is anything worthy of praise,
    think about these things.
    Keep on doing what you have learned and received
    and heard and seen in me.
    Then the God of peace will be with you.


    mt 21:33-43

    Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people:
    "Hear another parable.
    There was a landowner who planted a vineyard,
    put a hedge around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a tower.
    Then he leased it to tenants and went on a journey.
    When vintage time drew near,
    he sent his servants to the tenants to obtain his produce.
    But the tenants seized the servants and one they beat,
    another they killed, and a third they stoned.
    Again he sent other servants, more numerous than the first ones,
    but they treated them in the same way.
    Finally, he sent his son to them, thinking,
    'They will respect my son.'
    But when the tenants saw the son, they said to one another,
    'This is the heir.
    Come, let us kill him and acquire his inheritance.’
    They seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.
    What will the owner of the vineyard do to those tenants when he comes?"
    They answered him,
    "He will put those wretched men to a wretched death
    and lease his vineyard to other tenants
    who will give him the produce at the proper times."
    Jesus said to them, "Did you never read in the Scriptures:
    The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;by the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes?
    Therefore, I say to you,
    the kingdom of God will be taken away from you
    and given to a people that will produce its fruit."
