1st Reading – Isaiah 25:6-10A

6 The Lord of hosts will cause all the peoples on this mountain to feast on fatness, to feast on wine, a fatness full of marrow, a purified wine.

7 And he will cast down violently, on this mountain, the face of the chains, with which all peoples had been bound, and the net, with which all nations had been covered.

8 He will violently cast down death forever. And the Lord God will take away the tears from every face, and he will take away the disgrace of his people from the entire earth. For the Lord has spoken it.

9 And they will say in that day: “Behold, this is our God! We have waited for him, and he will save us. This is the Lord! We have endured for him. We will exult and rejoice in his salvation.”

10A For the hand of the Lord will rest upon this mountain.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 23:1-3A, 3B-4, 5, 6

R. (6cd) I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
Beside restful waters he leads me;
3A he refreshes my soul.
R. I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

3B He has led me on the paths of justice,
for his own name’s sake.
4 For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evils, for you are with me.
With your rod and your staff that give me courage.
R. I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

5 You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
R. I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

6 Only goodness and kindness follow me
all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
for years to come.
R. I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

Alleluia

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Behold, the Lord comes to save his people;
blessed are those prepared to meet him.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 15:29-37

At that time:

29 Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, went up on the mountain, and sat down there.

30 Great crowds came to him, having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute, and many others. They placed them at his feet, and he cured them.

31 The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind able to see, and they glorified the God of Israel.

32 Jesus summoned his disciples and said, “My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, for they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, for fear they may collapse on the way.”

33 The disciples said to him, “Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place to satisfy such a crowd?”

34 Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” “Seven,” they replied, “and a few fish.”

35 He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground.

36 Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.

37 They all ate and were satisfied. They picked up the fragments left over–seven baskets full.
