The house of Israel trusts in the Lord.

Readings of the Day: Tuesday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time

Reading for the Day
Hosea 8:4-7, 11-13

  • 4 They have reigned, but not by me: they have been princes, and I knew not: of their silver, and their gold they have made idols to themselves, that they might perish.
  • 5 Thy calf, O Samaria, is cast off, my wrath is kindled against them. How long will they be incapable of being cleansed?
  • 6 For itself also is the invention of Israel: a workman made it, and it is no god: for the calf of Samaria shall be turned to spiders webs.
  • 7 For they shall sow wind, and reap a whirlwind, there is no standing stalk in it, the bud shall yield no meal; and if it should yield, strangers shall eat it.
  • 11 Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin: altars are become to him unto sin.
  • 12 I shall write to him my manifold laws, which have been accounted as foreign.
  • 13 They shall offer victims, they shall sacrifice flesh, and shall eat it, and the Lord will not receive them: now will he remember their iniquity, and will visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.

Gospel for the Day
Matthew 9:32-38

  • 32 As they were going away, behold, a dumb demoniac was brought to him.
  • 33 And when the demon had been cast out, the dumb man spoke; and the crowds marveled, saying, "Never was anything like this seen in Israel."
  • 34 But the Pharisees said, "He casts out demons by the prince of demons."
  • 35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every infirmity.
  • 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
  • 37 Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;
  • 38 pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."
