1st Reading – Isaiah 35:1-10

1 The desolate and impassable land will rejoice, and the place of solitude will exult, and it will flourish like the lily.

2 It will spring up and blossom, and it will exult with rejoicing and praising. The glory of Lebanon has been given to it, with the beauty of Carmel and Sharon. These will see the glory of the Lord and the beauty of our God.

3 Strengthen the lax hands, and confirm the weak knees!

4 Say to the fainthearted: “Take courage and fear not! Behold, your God will bring the vindication of retribution. God himself will arrive to save you.”

5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf will be cleared.

6 Then the disabled will leap like a buck, and the tongue of the mute will be untied. For the waters have burst forth in the desert, and torrents in solitary places.

7 And the land that was dry will have a pond, and the thirsty land will have fountains of water. In the hollows where the serpents lived before, there will rise up the greenery of reed and bulrush.

8 And there shall be a path and a road in that place. And it will be called the Holy Way. The defiled will not pass through it. For this will be an upright path for you, so much so that the foolish will not wander along it.

9 There will be no lions in that place, and harmful wild animals will neither climb up to it, nor be found there. Only those who have been freed will walk in that place.

10 And the redeemed of the Lord will be converted, and they will return to Zion with praising. And everlasting joy will be upon their heads. They will obtain gladness and rejoicing. For pain and sorrow will flee away.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 85:9AB AND 10, 11-12, 13-14

R. (Isaiah 35:4f) Our God will come to save us!

9AB I will hear what the Lord God will speak in me:
for he will speak peace unto his people:
10 Surely his salvation is near to them that fear him:
that glory may dwell in our land.
R. Our God will come to save us!

11 Mercy and truth have met each other:
justice and peace have kissed.
12 Truth shall spring out of the earth:
and justice has looked down from heaven.
R. Our God will come to save us!

13 For the Lord will give goodness:
and our earth shall yield her fruit.
14 Justice shall walk before him:
and shall set his steps in the way.
R. Our God will come to save us!


R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Behold the king will come, the Lord of the earth,
and he himself will lift the yoke of our captivity.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Luke 5:17-26

17 One day as Jesus was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was with him for healing.

18 And some men brought on a stretcher a man who was paralyzed; they were trying to bring him in and set him in his presence.

19 But not finding a way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on the stretcher through the tiles into the middle in front of Jesus.

20 When he saw their faith, he said, “As for you, your sins are forgiven.”

21 Then the scribes and Pharisees began to ask themselves, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who but God alone can forgive sins?”

22 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them in reply, “What are you thinking in your hearts?

23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’?

24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” – he said to the man who was paralyzed, “I say to you, rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home.”

25 He stood up immediately before them, picked up what he had been lying on, and went home, glorifying God.

26 Then astonishment seized them all and they glorified God, and, struck with awe, they said, “We have seen incredible things today.”
