Lead me in your justice, Lord.

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

Reading for the Day
Amos 3:1-8; 4:11-12

  • 1 Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up out of the land of Egypt:
  • 2 "You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
  • 3 "Do two walk together, unless they have made an appointment?
  • 4 Does a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey? Does a young lion cry out from his den, if he has taken nothing?
  • 5 Does a bird fall in a snare on the earth, when there is no trap for it? Does a snare spring up from the ground, when it has taken nothing?
  • 6 Is a trumpet blown in a city, and the people are not afraid? Does evil befall a city, unless the LORD has done it?
  • 7 Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.
  • 8 The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken; who can but prophesy?"
  • 11 "I overthrew some of you, as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomor'rah, and you were as a brand plucked out of the burning; yet you did not return to me," says the LORD.
  • 12 "Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel; because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God, O Israel!"

Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 5:4-8

Response: Lead me in your justice, Lord.

  • 3 O LORD, in the morning thou dost hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for thee, and watch.
  • 4 For thou art not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not sojourn with thee. R
  • 5 The boastful may not stand before thy eyes; thou hatest all evildoers.
  • 6 Thou destroyest those who speak lies; the LORD abhors bloodthirsty and deceitful men. R
  • 7 But I through the abundance of thy steadfast love will enter thy house, I will worship toward thy holy temple in the fear of thee. R

Gospel for the Day
Matthew 8:23-27

  • 23 And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him.
  • 24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep.
  • 25 And they went and woke him, saying, "Save, Lord; we are perishing."
  • 26 And he said to them, "Why are you afraid, O men of little faith?" Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
  • 27 And the men marveled, saying, "What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?"
