Today’s Mass Readings for October 2 2019 and Gospel – Audio – Lectionary: 457/650 

1st Reading – Nehemiah 2:1-8

1 In the month Nisan of the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when the wine was in my charge, I took some and offered it to the king. As I had never before been sad in his presence,

2 the king asked me, “Why do you look sad? If you are not sick, you must be sad at heart.” Though I was seized with great fear,

3 I answered the king: “May the king live forever! How could I not look sad
when the city where my ancestors are buried lies in ruins, and its gates have been eaten out by fire?”

4 The king asked me, “What is it, then, that you wish?” I prayed to the God of heaven

5 and then answered the king: “If it please the king, and if your servant is deserving of your favor, send me to Judah, to the city of my ancestors’ graves, to rebuild it.”

6 Then the king, and the queen seated beside him, asked me how long my journey would take and when I would return. I set a date that was acceptable to him, and the king agreed that I might go.

7 I asked the king further: “If it please the king, let letters be given to me for the governors of West-of-Euphrates, that they may afford me safe-conduct until I arrive in Judah;

8 also a letter for Asaph, the keeper of the royal park, that he may give me wood for timbering the gates of the temple-citadel and for the city wall and the house that I shall occupy.” The king granted my requests, for the favoring hand of my God was upon me.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 137:1-2, 3, 4-5, 6

R. (6ab) Let my tongue be silenced if I ever forget you!

1 By the streams of Babylon
we sat and wept
when we remembered Zion.
2 On the aspens of that land
we hung up our harps.
R. Let my tongue be silenced if I ever forget you!

3 Though there our captors asked of us
the lyrics of our songs,
And our despoilers urged us to be joyous:
“Sing for us the songs of Zion!”
R. Let my tongue be silenced if I ever forget you!

4 How could we sing a song of the LORD
in a foreign land?
5 If I forget you, Jerusalem,
may my right hand be forgotten!
R. Let my tongue be silenced if I ever forget you!

6 May my tongue cleave to my palate
if I remember you not,
If I place not Jerusalem
ahead of my joy.
R. Let my tongue be silenced if I ever forget you!

Alleluia – Psalms 103:21

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
103 Bless the LORD, all you angels,
you ministers, who do his will.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 18:1-5, 10

1 The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?”

2 He called a child over, placed it in their midst,

3 and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven.

4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.

10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”
