Catholic Daily Readings for 1st September 2019, Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C – Daily Homily

September 1 2019: Today’s Mass Readings and Gospel – Audio – Lectionary: 126

1st Reading – Sirach 3:17-18, 21, 29-30

17 My child, conduct your affairs with humility,
and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts.

18 Humble yourself the more, the greater you are,
and you will find favor with God.

21 What is too sublime for you, seek not,
into things beyond your strength search not.

29 The mind of a sage appreciates proverbs,
and an attentive ear is the joy of the wise.

30 Water quenches a flaming fire,
and alms atone for sins.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 68:4-5, 6-7, 10-11

R. (cf. 11b) God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.

4 The just rejoice and exult before God;
they are glad and rejoice.
5 Sing to God, chant praise to his name;
whose name is the LORD.
R. God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.

6 The father of orphans and the defender of widows
is God in his holy dwelling.
7 God gives a home to the forsaken;
he leads forth prisoners to prosperity.
R. God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.

10 A bountiful rain you showered down, O God, upon your inheritance;
you restored the land when it languished;
11 your flock settled in it;
in your goodness, O God, you provided it for the needy.
R. God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.

2nd Reading – Hebrews 12:18-19, 22-24A

Brothers and sisters:
18 You have not approached that which could be touched and a blazing fire and gloomy darkness

19 and storm and a trumpet blast and a voice speaking words such that those who heard begged that no message be further addressed to them.

22 No, you have approached Mount Zion and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and countless angels in festal gathering,

23 and the assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven, and God the judge of all, and the spirits of the just made perfect,

24 and Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and the sprinkled blood that speaks more eloquently than that of Abel.

Alleluia – Matthew 11:29AB

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
29 Take my yoke upon you, says the Lord,
and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Luke 14:1, 7-14

1 On a sabbath Jesus went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees, and the people there were observing him carefully.

7 He told a parable to those who had been invited, noticing how they were choosing the places of honor at the table.

8 “When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not recline at table in the place of honor. A more distinguished guest than you may have been invited by him,

9 and the host who invited both of you may approach you and say, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then you would proceed with embarrassment to take the lowest place.

10 Rather, when you are invited, go and take the lowest place so that when the host comes to you he may say, ‘My friend, move up to a higher position.’ Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table.

11 For every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

12 Then he said to the host who invited him, “When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment.

13 Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame,  the blind;

14 Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
