Ordinary Time 13th week Tuesday Cycle II All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Amos 3:1-8,4:11-12

Listen, sons of Israel, to this oracle the Lord speaks against you, against the whole family I brought out of the land of Egypt:

You alone, of all the families of earth, have I acknowledged,
therefore it is for all your sins that I mean to punish you.
Do two men take the road together 
if they have not planned to do so?
Does the lion roar in the jungle 
if no prey has been found?
Does the young lion growl in his lair 
if he has captured nothing?
Does the bird fall to the ground 
if no trap has been set?
Does the snare spring up from the ground 
if nothing has been caught?
Does the trumpet sound in the city 
without the populace becoming alarmed?
oes misfortune come to a city 
if the Lord has not sent it?
No more does the Lord do anything
without revealing his plans to his servants the prophets.
The lion roars: who can help feeling afraid?
The Lord speaks: who can refuse to prophesy?

I overthrew you as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
and you were like a brand snatched from the blaze;
and yet you never came back to me.
It is the Lord who speaks.
This therefore, Israel, is what I plan to do to you,
and because I am going to do this to you,
Israel, prepare to meet your God!

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 5:5-8

Lead me, O Lord, in your justice.

You are no God who loves evil; 
  no sinner is your guest.
The boastful shall not stand their ground 
  before your face.

Lead me, O Lord, in your justice.

You hate all who do evil; 
  you destroy all who lie.
The deceitful and bloodthirsty man 
  the Lord detests.

Lead me, O Lord, in your justice.

But I through the greatness of your love 
  have access to your house.
I bow down before your holy temple,
  filled with awe.

Lead me, O Lord, in your justice.

Gospel Acclamation

 

Alleluia, alleluia!
O praise the Lord, Jerusalem!
He sends out his word to the earth.
Alleluia!
