1st Reading – Genesis 49:29-32; 50:15-26A

29 Joseph instructed his sons, saying: “I am being gathered to my people. Bury me with my fathers in the double cave, which is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,

30 opposite Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought, along with its field, from Ephron the Hittite, as a possession for burial.

31 There Abraham and his wife Sarah are buried, and so are Isaac and his wife Rebekah, and there, too, I buried Leah

32 the field and the cave in it that had been purchased from the Hittites.”

15 Now that Jacob was dead, Joseph’s brothers were afraid, and they said to one another: “Perhaps now he may remember the injury that he suffered and requite us for all the evil that we did to him.”

16 So they sent a message to him, saying: “Your father instructed us before he died,

17 that we should say these words to you from him: ‘I beg you to forget the wickedness of your brothers, and the sin and malice that they practiced against you.’ Likewise, we petition you to release the servants of the God of your father from this iniquity.” Hearing this, Joseph wept.

18 And his brothers went to him. And reverencing prostrate on the ground, they said, “We are your servants.”

19 And he answered them: “Do not be afraid. Are we able to resist the will of God?

20 You devised evil against me. But God turned it into good, so that he might exalt me, just as you presently discern, and so that he might bring about the salvation of many peoples.

21 Do not be afraid. I will pasture you and your little ones.” And he consoled them, and he spoke mildly and leniently.

22 Joseph lived in Egypt with all his father’s house; and he survived for one hundred and ten years.

23 And he saw the sons of Ephraim to the third generation. Likewise, the sons of Machir, the son of Manasseh, were born onto Joseph’s knees.

24 Joseph said to his brothers: “God will visit you after my death, and he will make you ascend from this land into the land which he swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

25 And when he had made them swear and had said, “God will visit you; carry my bones with you from this place,”

26A Joseph died, having completed one hundred and ten years of his life.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7

R. (see Psalm 69:33) Be glad you lowly ones; may your hearts be glad!

1 Give thanks to the LORD, invoke his name;
make known among the nations his deeds.
2 Sing to him, sing his praise,
proclaim all his wondrous deeds.
R. Be glad you lowly ones; may your hearts be glad!

3 Glory in his holy name;
rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD!
4 Look to the LORD in his strength;
seek to serve him constantly.
R. Be glad you lowly ones; may your hearts be glad!

6 You descendants of Abraham, his servants,
sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
7 He, the LORD, is our God;
throughout the earth his judgments prevail.
R. Be glad you lowly ones; may your hearts be glad!

Alleluia – 1 Peter 4:14

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, blessed are you,
for the Spirit of God rests upon you.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 10:24-33

Jesus said to his Apostles:
24 “No disciple is above his teacher, no slave above his master.

25 It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, for the slave that he become like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more those of his household!

26 “Therefore do not be afraid of them. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.

27 What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.

28 And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge.

30 Even all the hairs of your head are counted.

31 So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

32 Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.

33 But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.”
