Ordinary Time 17th week Thursday Cycle II All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Jeremiah 18:1-6

The word that was addressed to Jeremiah by the Lord, ‘Get up and make your way down to the potter’s house; there I shall let you hear what I have to say.’ So I went down to the potter’s house; and there he was, working at the wheel. And whenever the vessel he was making came out wrong, as happens with the clay handled by potters, he would start afresh and work it into another vessel, as potters do. Then this word of the Lord was addressed to me, ‘House of Israel, can not I do to you what this potter does? – it is the Lord who speaks. Yes, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so you are in mine, House of Israel.’

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 145(146):2-6

He is happy who is helped by Jacob’s God.

My soul, give praise to the Lord.
  I will praise the Lord all my days,
  make music to my God while I live.

He is happy who is helped by Jacob’s God.

Put no trust in princes,
  In mortal men in whom there is no help.
Take their breath, they return to clay
  and their plans that day come to nothing.

He is happy who is helped by Jacob’s God.

He is happy who is helped by Jacob’s God,
  whose hope is in the Lord his God,
who alone made heaven and earth,
  the seas and all they contain.

He is happy who is helped by Jacob’s God.
