Catholic Sunday Readings for August 27 2023, Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A

1st Reading – Isaiah 22:19-23

Thus says the LORD to Shebna, master of the palace:
19 “I will expel you from your station, and I will depose you from your ministry.

20 And this shall be in that day: I will call my servant Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah.

21 And I will clothe him with your vestment, and I will strengthen him with your belt, and I will give your authority to his hand. And he shall be like a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah.

22 And I will place the key of the house of David upon his shoulder. And when he opens, no one will close. And when he closes, no one will open.

23 And I will fasten him like a peg in a trustworthy place. And he will be upon a throne of glory in the house of his father.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 138:1-2, 2-3, 6, 8

R. (8bc) Lord, your love is eternal; do not forsake the work of your hands.

1 I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
for you have heard the words of my mouth;
in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
2A I will worship at your holy temple.
R. Lord, your love is eternal; do not forsake the work of your hands.

2B I will give thanks to your name,
because of your kindness and your truth:
3 When I called, you answered me;
you built up strength within me.
R. Lord, your love is eternal; do not forsake the work of your hands.

6 The LORD is exalted, yet the lowly he sees,
and the proud he knows from afar.
8 Your kindness, O LORD, endures forever;
forsake not the work of your hands.
R. Lord, your love is eternal; do not forsake the work of your hands.

2nd Reading – Romans 11:33-36

33 Oh, the depths of the richness of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are his judgments, and how unsearchable are his ways!

34 For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?

35 Or who first gave to him, so that repayment would be owed?

36 For from him, and through him, and in him are all things. To him is glory, for all eternity. Amen.

Alleluia – Matthew 16:18

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
18 You are Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church
and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 16:13-20

13 Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi and he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”

14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

16 Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father.

18 And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.

19 I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

20 Then he strictly ordered his disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.
