Readings of the Day: Memorial of Saint Benedict, Abbot

Reading for the Day
Isaiah 6:1-8

  • 1 In the year that King Uzzi'ah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.
  • 2 Above him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.
  • 3 And one called to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory."
  • 4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.
  • 5 And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!"
  • 6 Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having in his hand a burning coal which he had taken with tongs from the altar.
  • 7 And he touched my mouth, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven."
  • 8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 93:1-2, 5

Response: The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty.

  • 1 The LORD reigns; he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed, he is girded with strength. Yea, the world is established; it shall never be moved; R
  • 2 thy throne is established from of old; thou art from everlasting.
  • 5 Thy decrees are very sure; holiness befits thy house, O LORD, for evermore. R

Gospel for the Day
Matthew 10:24-33

  • 24 "A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master;
  • 25 it is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Be-el'zebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.
  • 26 "So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.
  • 27 What I tell you in the dark, utter in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim upon the housetops.
  • 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
  • 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will.
  • 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
  • 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
  • 32 So every one who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven;
  • 33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.
