Jun 27

Monday 27 June 2022 Monday of week 13 in Ordinary Time  or Saint Cyril of Alexandria, Bishop, Doctor  Liturgical Colour: Green.


Entrance Antiphon:
Psalm 46: 2

All peoples, clap your hands.
Cry to God with shouts of joy!


Collect:

O God, who through the grace of adoption
chose us to be children of light,
grant, we pray,
that we may not be wrapped in the darkness of error
but always be seen to stand in the bright light of truth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.


First Reading:
Amos 2:6-10,13-16
Because of your crimes I will crush you into the ground

The Lord says this:

For the three crimes, the four crimes, of Israel
I have made my decree and will not relent:
because they have sold the virtuous man for silver
and the poor man for a pair of sandals,
because they trample on the heads of ordinary people
and push the poor out of their path,
because father and son have both resorted to the same girl,
profaning my holy name,
because they stretch themselves out by the side of every altar
on clothes acquired as pledges,
and drink the wine of the people they have fined
in the house of their god…
Yet it was I who overthrew the Amorites when they attacked,
men tall as cedars and strong as oaks,
I who destroyed them,
both fruit above ground
and root below.
It was I who brought you out of the land of Egypt
and for forty years led you through the wilderness
to take possession of the Amorite’s country.

See then how I am going to crush you into the ground
as the threshing-sledge crushes when clogged by straw;
flight will not save even the swift,
the strong man will find his strength useless,
the mighty man will be powerless to save himself.
The bowman will not stand his ground,
the fast runner will not escape,
the horseman will not save himself,
the bravest warriors will run away naked that day.
It is the Lord who speaks.


Responsorial Psalm:
Psalm 49(50):16-23

Mark this, you who never think of God.

‘How can you recite my commandments
and take my covenant on your lips,
you who despise my law
and throw my words to the winds?

Mark this, you who never think of God.

‘You who see a thief and go with him;
who throw in your lot with adulterers,
who unbridle your mouth for evil
and whose tongue is plotting crime.

Mark this, you who never think of God.

‘You who sit and malign your brother
and slander your own mother’s son.
You do this, and should I keep silence?
Do you think that I am like you?

Mark this, you who never think of God.

‘Mark this, you who never think of God,
lest I seize you and you cannot escape;
a sacrifice of thanksgiving honours me
and I will show God’s salvation to the upright.

Mark this, you who never think of God.


Gospel Acclamation:
John 8:12

Alleluia, Alleluia!
I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
anyone who follows me will have the light of life.
Alleluia!

Or:
Psalm 94:8

Alleluia, Alleluia!
Harden not your hearts today,
but listen to the voice of the Lord.
Alleluia!


Gospel:
Matthew 8:18-22
The Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head

When Jesus saw the great crowds all about him he gave orders to leave for the other side. One of the scribes then came up and said to him, ‘Master, I will follow you wherever you go.’ Jesus replied, ‘Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’

Another man, one of his disciples, said to him, ‘Sir, let me go and bury my father first.’ But Jesus replied, ‘Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.’


Prayer over the Offerings:

O God, who graciously accomplish
the effects of your mysteries,
grant, we pray,
that the deeds by which we serve you
may be worthy of these sacred gifts.
Through Christ our Lord.


Communion Antiphon:
cf. Psalm 102: 1

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all within me, his holy name.

Or:
John 17: 20-21

O Father, I pray for them, that they may be one in us,
that the world may believe that you have sent me, says the Lord.


Prayer after Communion:

May this divine sacrifice we have offered and received
fill us with life, O Lord, we pray,
so that, bound to you in lasting charity,
we may bear fruit that lasts for ever.
Through Christ our Lord.
