Tuesday 30 June 2020 Tuesday of week 13 in Ordinary Time  or The First Martyrs of the See of Rome Liturgical Colour: Green.


Entrance Antiphon:
Ps 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, one God, for ever and ever.


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

It is for all your sins that I mean to punish you

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? Does 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:
Ps147:12,15

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

Or:
Ps129:5

Alleluia, alleluia!
My soul is waiting for the Lord, I count on his word.
Alleluia!


Gospel:
Matthew 8:23-27

Jesus rebuked the winds and the seas, and all was calm

Jesus got into the boat followed by his disciples. Without warning a storm broke over the lake, so violent that the waves were breaking right over the boat. But he was asleep. So they went to him and woke him saying, ‘Save us, Lord, we are going down!’ And he said to them, ‘Why are you so frightened, you men of little faith?’ And with that he stood up and rebuked the winds and the sea; and all was calm again. The men were astounded and said, ‘Whatever kind of man is this? Even the winds and the sea obey him.’


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. Ps 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.
