First Reading Isaiah 58:1-9a
ResponseA broken and humbled heart, O God, you will not spurn.
GospelMatthew 9:14-15

R/. A broken and humbled heart, O God, you will not spurn.

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your merciful love;
according to your great compassion,
blot out my transgressions.
Wash me completely from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin. R/.

My transgressions, truly I know them;
my sin is always before me.
Against you, you alone, have I sinned;
what is evil in your sight I have done. R/.

For in sacrifice you take no delight;
burnt offering from me would not please you.
My sacrifice to God, a broken spirit:
a broken and humbled heart,
O God, you will not spurn. R/.

V/. Glory and praise to you, O Christ

R/. Glory and praise to you, O Christ

V/. Seek good, and not evil, that you may live; and the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you.

R/.Glory and praise to you, O Christ.

The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.
