TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 6:43-49)

(Week 23 of the year: Saturday)

WHY DO YOU CALL ME, “LORD, LORD” AND NOT DO WHAT I SAY?

For there is no good tree that bringeth forth evil fruit; nor an evil tree that bringeth forth good fruit.

For every tree is known by its fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns; nor from a bramble bush do they gather the grape.

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth that which is evil. For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

And why call you me, Lord, Lord; and do not the things which I say?

Every one that cometh to me, and heareth my words, and doth them, I will shew you to whom he is like.

He is like to a man building a house, who digged deep, and layed the foundation upon a rock. And when a flood came, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and it could not shake it; for it was founded on a rock.

But he that heareth, and doth not, is like to a man building his house upon the earth without a foundation: against which the stream beat vehemently, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (MATTHEW 7:21-29)

THE HOUSE BUILT ON ROCK AND THE HOUSE BUILT ON SAND.

Jesus said to his disciples: “It is not those who say to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ who will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven. When the day comes many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, cast out demons in your name, work many miracles in your name?’ Then I shall tell them to their faces: I have never known you; away from me, you evil men!

“Therefore, everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on rock. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and hurled themselves against that house, and it did not fall: it was founded on rock. But everyone who listens to these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and struck that house, and it fell; and what a fall it had!”

Jesus had now finished what he wanted to say, and his teaching made a deep impression on the people because he taught them with authority, and not like their own scribes.

V. The word of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S RESPONSORIAL PSALM (PSALM 104)

R. Remember the wonders the Lord has done.

1. God called down a famine on the land;
he broke the staff that supported them.
He had sent a man before them,
Joseph, sold as a slave. (R.)

2. His feet were put in chains,
his neck was bound with iron,
until what he said came to pass
and the Lord’s word proved him true. (R.)

3. Then the king sent and released him;
the ruler of the peoples set him free,
making him master of his house
and ruler of all he possessed. (R.)

ACCLAMATION

God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son;
everyone who believes in him has eternal life.
