1st Reading – Genesis 23:1-4, 19; 24:1-8, 62-67

1 Now Sarah lived for one hundred and twenty-seven years.

2 And she died in the city of Arba, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan. And Abraham came to mourn and weep for her.

3 And when he had risen up from the funeral duties, he spoke to the sons of Heth, saying:

4 “I am a newcomer and a sojourner among you. Give me the right of a sepulcher among you, so that I may bury my dead.”

19 After the transaction, Abraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave of the field of Machpelah, facing Mamre (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan.

1 Now Abraham was old and of many days. And the Lord had blessed him in all things.

2 And he said to the elder servant of his house, who was in charge of all that he had: “Place your hand under my thigh,

3 so that I may make you swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I live.

4 But that you will proceed to my land and kindred, and from there take a wife for my son Isaac.”

5 The servant responded, “If the woman is not willing to come with me into this land, must I lead your son back to the place from which you departed?”

6 And Abraham said: “Beware that you never lead my son back to that place.

7 The Lord God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my nativity, who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, ‘To your offspring I will give this land,’ himself will send his Angel before you, and you will take from there a wife for my son.

8 But if the woman is not willing to follow you, you will not be held by the oath. Only do not lead my son back to that place.”

62 A long time later, Isaac went to live in the region of the Negeb.

63 One day toward evening he went out . . . in the field, and as he looked around, he noticed that camels were approaching.

64 Likewise, Rebekah, having seen Isaac, descended from the camel.

65 And she said to the servant, “Who is that man who advances to meet us through the field?” And he said to her, “That is my lord.” And so, quickly taking up her cloak, she covered herself.

66 Then the servant explained to Isaac all that he had done.

67 And he led her into the tent of Sarah his mother, and he accepted her as wife. And he loved her so very much, that it tempered the sorrow which befell him at his mother’s death.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 106:1B-2, 3-4A, 4B-5

R. (1b) Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.

1B Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his mercy endures forever.
2 Who can tell the mighty deeds of the LORD,
or proclaim all his praises?
R. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.

3 Blessed are they who observe what is right,
who do always what is just.
4A Remember us, O LORD, as you favour your people.
R. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.

4B Visit me with your saving help,
5 That I may see the prosperity of your chosen ones,
rejoice in the joy of your people,
and glory with your inheritance.
R. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.

Alleluia – Matthew 11:28

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
28 Come to me, all you who labour and are burdened,
and I will give you rest, says the Lord.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 9:9-13

9 As Jesus passed by, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post. He said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him.

10 While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners came
and sat with Jesus and his disciples.

11 The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

12 He heard this and said, “Those who are well, do not need a physician, but the sick do.

13 Go and learn the meaning of the words, I desire mercy, not sacrifice. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
