1st Reading – Exodus 1:8-14, 22

8 Meanwhile, there arose a new king over Egypt, who was ignorant of Joseph.

9 And he said to his people: “Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are many, and they are stronger than we are.

10 Come, let us wisely oppress them, lest they multiply; and if any war should advance against us, they may be added to our enemies, and having fought against us, they might depart from the land.”

11 And so he set over them masters of the works, in order to afflict them with burdens. And they built for Pharaoh the cities of the tabernacles: Pithom and Raamses.

12 And the more they oppressed them, so much more did they multiply and increase.

13 And the Egyptians hated the sons of Israel, and they afflicted them and mocked them.

14 And they led their life directly into bitterness, with hard work in clay and brick, and with all kinds of servitude, so that they were being overwhelmed with the works of the land.

22 Therefore, Pharaoh instructed all his people, saying: “Whatever will be born of the Hebrews of the male sex, cast it into the river; whatever will be born of the female sex, retain it.”

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 124:1B-3, 4-6, 7-8

R. (8a) Our help is in the name of the Lord.

1B Had not the LORD been with us – let Israel say,
2 had not the LORD been with us–
When men rose up against us,
3 then would they have swallowed us alive,
When their fury was inflamed against us.
R. Our help is in the name of the Lord.

4 Then would the waters have overwhelmed us;
The torrent would have swept over us;
5 over us then would have swept
the raging waters.
6 Blessed be the LORD, who did not leave us
a prey to their teeth.
R. Our help is in the name of the Lord.

7 We were rescued like a bird
from the fowlers’ snare;
Broken was the snare,
and we were freed.
8 Our help is in the name of the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
R. Our help is in the name of the Lord.

Alleluia – Matthew 5:10

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
10 Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 10:34-11:1

34 Jesus said to his Apostles: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth. I have come to bring not peace but the sword.

35 For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;

36 and one’s enemies will be those of his household.

37 “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;

38 and whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me.

39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

40 “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.

41 Whoever receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever receives a righteous man because he is righteous will receive a righteous man’s reward.

42 And whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink because he is a disciple, amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward.”

1 When Jesus finished giving these commands to his Twelve disciples, he went away from that place to teach and to preach in their towns.
