Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 78(77):56-59, 61-62

Response: Do not forget the works of the Lord!

  • 56 Yet they tested and rebelled against the Most High God, and did not observe his testimonies,
  • 57 but turned away and acted treacherously like their fathers; they twisted like a deceitful bow. R
  • 58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places; they moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
  • 59 When God heard, he was full of wrath, and he utterly rejected Israel. R
  • 61 and delivered his power to captivity, his glory to the hand of the foe.
  • 62 He gave his people over to the sword, and vented his wrath on his heritage. R


Gospel for the Day
Matthew 18:21--19:1

  • 21 Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?"
  • 22 Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.
  • 23 "Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants.
  • 24 When he began the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents;

  • 27 And out of pity for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave him the debt.
  • 28 But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat he said, `Pay what you owe.'
  • 29 So his fellow servant fell down and besought him, `Have patience with me, and I will pay you.'
  • 30 He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt.
  • 31 When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place.

  • 33 and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?'
  • 34 And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt.
