First Reading Sirach 48:1-14
ResponseRejoice in the Lord, you just.
Gospel Matthew 6:7-15

R/. Rejoice in the Lord, you just.

The Lord is king, let earth rejoice;
let the many islands be glad.
Cloud and darkness surround him;
justice and right are the foundation of his throne. R/.

A fire prepares his path;
it burns up his foes on every side.
His lightnings light up the world;
the earth looks on and trembles. R/.

The mountains melt like wax before the face of the Lord,
before the face of the Lord of all the earth.
The skies proclaim his justice; all peoples see his glory. R/.

Let those who serve idols be ashamed,
those who boast of their worthless gods.
All you angels, worship him. R/.

V/. Alleluia

R/. Alleluia

V/. You have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

R/. Alleluia.

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples, “When you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
