1st Reading – Leviticus 23:1, 4-11, 15-16, 27, 34B-37

1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:

4 “These are the feasts of the Lord, which you must celebrate in their times.

5 The first month, the fourteenth day of the month, at evening, is the Passover of the Lord.

6 And the fifteenth day of this month is the solemnity of the unleavened bread of the Lord. For seven days shall you eat unleavened bread.

7 The first day shall be greatly honored and holy to you; you shall do no servile work in it.

8 But you shall offer a sacrifice with fire, for seven days, to the Lord. Then the seventh day shall be more honored and more holy; and you shall do no servile work in it.

9 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:

10 Speak to the sons of Israel, and you shall say to them: When you will have entered into the land which I will give to you, and you will have harvested your grain fields, you shall carry the sheaves of grain, the first-fruits of your harvest, to the priest.

11 He shall lift up a sheaf before the Lord, on the day after the Sabbath, so that it may be acceptable for you, and he shall sanctify it.

15 Therefore, you shall number from the day after the Sabbath, in which you offered a sheaf of the first-fruits, seven full weeks,

16 all the way to the day after the completion of the seventh week, that is, fifty days, and then you shall offer a new sacrifice to the Lord.

27 The tenth day of this seventh month shall be the day of atonement; it shall be most honored, and it shall be called holy. And you shall afflict your souls on that day, and you shall offer a holocaust to the Lord.

34B From the fifteenth day of this seventh month, there shall be the Feast of Tabernacles: seven days for the Lord.

35 The first day shall be called most honored and most holy; you shall do no servile work in it.

36 And for seven days you shall offer holocausts to the Lord. Likewise, the eighth day shall be most honored and most holy, and you shall offer holocausts to the Lord. For it is the day of assembly and gathering. You shall do no servile work in it.

37 These are the feasts of the Lord, which you shall call most honored and most holy, and in them you shall offer oblations to the Lord: holocausts and libations according to the rite of each particular day.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 81:3-4, 5-6, 10-11AB

R. (2a) Sing with joy to God our help.

3 Take up a melody, and sound the timbrel,
the pleasant harp and the lyre.
4 Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
at the full moon, on our solemn feast.
R. Sing with joy to God our help.

5 For it is a statute in Israel,
an ordinance of the God of Jacob,
6 Who made it a decree for Joseph
when he came forth from the land of Egypt.
R. Sing with joy to God our help.

10 There shall be no strange god among you
nor shall you worship any alien god.
11AB I, the LORD, am your God
who led you forth from the land of Egypt.
R. Sing with joy to God our help.

Alleluia – 1 Peter 1:25

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
25 The word of the Lord remains forever;
This is the word that has been proclaimed to you.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 13:54-58

54 Jesus came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue.
They were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds?

55 Is he not the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother named Mary and his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas?

56 Are not his sisters all with us? Where did this man get all this?”

57 And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and in his own house.”

58 And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith.
