1st Reading – Leviticus 25:1, 8-17

1 The Lord spoke to Moses on mount Sinai, saying:

8 You shall also number for yourselves seven weeks of years, that is, seven times seven, which together makes forty-nine years.

9 And you shall sound the trumpet in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, at the time of the atonement, throughout all your land.

10 And you shall sanctify the fiftieth year, and you shall proclaim a remission for all the inhabitants of your land: for the same is the Jubilee. A man shall return to his possession, and each one shall go back to his original family,

11 for it is the Jubilee and the fiftieth year. You shall not sow, and you shall not reap what grows in the field of its own accord, and you shall not gather the first-fruits of the crop,

12 due to the sanctification of the Jubilee. But you shall eat them as they present themselves.

13 In the year of the Jubilee, all shall return to their possessions.

14 When you will sell anything to your fellow citizen, or buy anything from him, do not cause your brother grief, but buy from him according to the number of years from the Jubilee,

15 and he shall sell to you according to the computation of the produce.

16 The more years that will remain after the Jubilee, the more the price shall increase, and the less the time is numbered, so much less shall the purchase price be. For he will sell to you the time for the produce.

17 Do be willing to afflict your countrymen, but let each one fear his God. For I am the Lord your God.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 67:2-3, 5, 7-8

R. (4) O God, let all the nations praise you!

2 May God have pity on us and bless us;
may he let his face shine upon us.
3 So may your way be known upon earth;
among all nations, your salvation.
R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

5 May the nations be glad and exult
because you rule the peoples in equity;
the nations on the earth you guide.
R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

7 The earth has yielded its fruits;
God, our God, has blessed us.
8 May God bless us,
and may all the ends of the earth fear him!
R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

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 14:1-12

1 Herod the tetrarch heard of the reputation of Jesus

2 and said to his servants, “This man is John the Baptist. He has been raised from the dead; that is why mighty powers are at work in him.”

3 Now Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip,

4 for John had said to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.”

5 Although he wanted to kill him, he feared the people, for they regarded him as a prophet.

6 But at a birthday celebration for Herod, the daughter of Herodias performed a dance before the guests and delighted Herod

7 so much that he swore to give her whatever she might ask for.

8 Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.”

9 The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and the guests who were present, he ordered that it be given,

10 and he had John beheaded in the prison.

11 His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who took it to her mother.

12 His disciples came and took away the corpse and buried him; and they went and told Jesus.
