First Reading 1 Kings 18:41-46
ResponsePraise is due to you in Sion, O God.
GospelMatthew 5:20-26

R/. Praise is due to you in Sion, O God.

You visit the earth, give it water;
you fill it with riches.
God’s ever-flowing river brims over
to prepare the grain. R/.

And thus you provide for the earth:
you drench its furrows;
you level it, soften it with showers;
you bless its growth. R/.

You crown the year with your bounty.
Abundance flows in your pathways;
in pastures of the desert it flows.
The hills are girded with joy. R/.

V/. Alleluia

R/. Alleluia

V/. A new commandment I give to you, says the Lord, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.

R/.Alleluia.

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples, “For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison. Truly, I say to you, you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.
