Reading 1 – Genesis 18:1-15

1 The LORD appeared to Abraham in the steep valley of Mamre, when he was sitting at the door of his tent, in the very heat of the day.

2 And when he had lifted up his eyes, there appeared to him three men, standing near him. When he had seen them, he ran to meet them from the door of his tent, and he reverenced them on the ground.

3 he said: “If I, O lord, have found grace in your eyes, do not pass by your servant.

4 But I will bring a little water, and you may wash your feet and rest under the tree.

5 And I will set out a meal of bread, so that you may strengthen your heart; after this you will pass on. It is for this reason that you have turned aside to your servant.” And they said, “Do as you have spoken.”

6 Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah, and he said to her, “Quickly, mix together three measures of the finest wheat flour and make loaves baked under the ashes.”

7 In truth, he himself ran to the herd, and he took a calf from there, very tender and very good, and he gave it to a servant, who hurried and boiled it.

8 Likewise, he took butter and milk, and the calf which he had boiled, and he placed it before them. Yet truly, he himself stood near them under the tree.

9 And when they had eaten, they said to him, “Where is Sarah your wife?” He answered, “Behold, she is in the tent.”

10 And he said to him, “When returning, I will come to you at this time, with life as a companion, and your wife Sarah will have a son.” Hearing this, Sarah laughed behind the door of the tent.

11 Now they were both old, and in an advanced state of life, and it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

12 And she laughed secretly, saying, “After I have grown old, and my lord is elderly, shall I give myself to the work of delight?”

13 Then the Lord said to Abraham: “Why did Sarah laugh, saying: ‘How can I, an old woman, actually give birth?’

14 Is anything difficult for God? According to the announcement, he will return to you at this same time, with life as a companion, and Sarah will have a son.”

15 Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh.” For she was terribly afraid. But the Lord said, “It is not so; for you did laugh.”

Responsorial Psalm – Luke 1:46-47, 48-49, 50 AND 53, 54-55

R. (see 54b) The Lord has remembered his mercy.

46 “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
47 my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”
R. The Lord has remembered his mercy.

48 “For he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
49 the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.”
R. The Lord has remembered his mercy.

50 “He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.”
R. The Lord has remembered his mercy.

54 “He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
55 The promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.”
R. The Lord has remembered his mercy.

Alleluia – Matthew 8:17

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
17 Christ took away our infirmities
and bore our diseases.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 8:5-17

5 When Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion approached him and appealed to him,

6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, suffering dreadfully.”

7 He said to him, “I will come and cure him.”

8 The centurion said in reply, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed.

9 For I too am a man subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come here,’ and he comes; and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him,
“Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith.

11 I say to you, many will come from the east and the west, and will recline with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the banquet in the Kingdom of heaven,

12 but the children of the Kingdom will be driven out into the outer darkness, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.”

13 And Jesus said to the centurion, “You may go; as you have believed, let it be done for you.” And at that very hour his servant was healed.

14 Jesus entered the house of Peter, and saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.

15 He touched her hand, the fever left her, and she rose and waited on him.

16 When it was evening, they brought him many who were possessed by demons, and he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick,

17 to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet:
