Entrance Antiphon: Cf. Ps 16:15

As for me, in justice I shall behold your face; I shall be filled with the vision of your glory.


Collect:

O God, who show the light of your truth to those who go astray, so that they may return to the right path, give all who for the faith they profess are accounted Christians the grace to reject whatever is contrary to the name of Christ and to strive after all that does it honour. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.


First Reading: Exodus 12:37-42

!The sons of Israel leave Egypt hurriedly by night

The sons of Israel left Rameses for Succoth, about six hundred thousand on the march – all men – not counting their families. People of various sorts joined them in great numbers; there were flocks, too, and herds in immense droves. They baked cakes with the dough which they had brought from Egypt, unleavened because the dough was not leavened; they had been driven out of Egypt, with no time for dallying, and had not provided themselves with food for the journey. The time that the sons of Israel had spent in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years. And on the very day the four hundred and thirty years ended, all the array of the Lord left the land of Egypt. The night, when the Lord kept vigil to bring them out of the land of Egypt, must be kept as a vigil in honour of the Lord for all their generations.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 135(136):1,10-15,23-24

O give thanks to the Lord for he is good.

His love is everlasting!
He remembered us in our distress.
His love is everlasting!
And he snatched us away from our foes.
His love is everlasting!
The first-born of the Egyptians he smote.
His love is everlasting!
He brought Israel out from their midst.
His love is everlasting!
Arm outstretched, with power in his hand.
His love is everlasting!
He divided the Red Sea in two.
His love is everlasting!
He made Israel pass through the midst.
His love is everlasting!
He flung Pharaoh and his force in the sea.
His love is everlasting!


Gospel Acclamation: Ps118:27

Alleluia, alleluia!
Make me grasp the way of your precepts, and I will muse on your wonders.
Alleluia!


or: 2Co5:19

Alleluia, alleluia!
God in Christ was reconciling the world to himself, and he has entrusted to us the news that they are reconciled.
Alleluia!


Gospel: Matthew 12:14-21

He cured them all but warned them not to make him known

The Pharisees went out and began to plot against Jesus, discussing how to destroy him. Jesus knew this and withdrew from the district. Many followed him and he cured them all, but warned them not to make him known. This was to fulfil the prophecy of Isaiah: Here is my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved, the favourite of my soul. I will endow him with my spirit, and he will proclaim the true faith to the nations. He will not brawl or shout, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets. He will not break the crushed reed, nor put out the smouldering wick till he has led the truth to victory: in his name the nations will put their hope.


Prayer over the Offerings:

Look upon the offerings of the Church, O Lord, as she makes her prayer to you, and grant that, when consumed by those who believe, they may bring ever greater holiness. Through Christ our Lord.


Communion Antiphon: Cf. Ps 83: 4-5

The sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for her young: by your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. Blessed are they who dwell in your house, for ever singing your praise.


or: John 6: 57

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him, says the Lord.


Prayer after Communion:

Having consumed these gifts, we pray, O Lord, that, by our participation in this mystery, its saving effects upon us may grow. Through Christ our Lord.
