1st Reading – Zechariah 8:1-8

1 And the word of the Lord of hosts came, saying:

2 Thus says the Lord of hosts: I have been zealous for Zion with a great zeal, and with a great indignation have I been zealous for her.

3 Thus says the Lord of hosts: I have been turned back towards Zion, and I will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And Jerusalem will be called: “The City of Truth,” and “The Mountain of the Lord of Hosts, the Sanctified Mountain.”

4 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Then elderly men and elderly women will dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man will be with his walking stick in his hand, because of the multitude of days.

5 And the streets of the city will be filled with toddlers and children, playing in its streets.

6 Thus says the Lord of hosts: If it seems difficult in the eyes of the remnant of this people in those days, could it indeed be difficult in my eyes, says the Lord of hosts?

7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will save my people from the land of the East, and from the land of the setting of the sun.

8 And I will lead them, and they will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And they will be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in justice.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 102:16-18, 19-21, 29 AND 22-23

R. (17) The Lord will build up Zion again, and appear in all his glory.

16 The nations shall revere your name, O LORD,
and all the kings of the earth your glory,
17 When the LORD has rebuilt Zion
and appeared in his glory;
18 When he has regarded the prayer of the destitute,
and not despised their prayer.
R. The Lord will build up Zion again, and appear in all his glory.

19 Let this be written for the generation to come,
and let his future creatures praise the LORD:
20 “The LORD looked down from his holy height,
from heaven he beheld the earth,
21 To hear the groaning of the prisoners,
to release those doomed to die.”
R. The Lord will build up Zion again, and appear in all his glory.

29 The children of your servants shall abide,
and their posterity shall continue in your presence.
22 That the name of the LORD may be declared in Zion;
and his praise, in Jerusalem,
23 When the peoples gather together,
and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
R. The Lord will build up Zion again, and appear in all his glory.

Alleluia – Psalms 103:21

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
21 Bless the LORD, all you angels, you ministers, who do his will.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 18:1-5, 10

1 The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?”

2 He called a child over, placed it in their midst,

3 and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven.

4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.

10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”
