First Reading 2 Kings 11:1-4, 9-18, 20
ResponseThe Lord has chosen Sion; he has desired it for his dwelling.
Gospel Matthew 6:19-23

R/. The Lord has chosen Sion; he has desired it for his dwelling.

The Lord swore an oath to David;
he will not go back on his word:
“A son, the fruit of your body,
will I set upon your throne. R/.

If your sons hold fast to my covenant,
and my laws that I have taught them,
their sons, in turn, shall sit
on your throne from age to age.” R/.

For the Lord has chosen Sion;
he has desired it for his dwelling:
This is my resting place from age to age;
here have I chosen to dwell. R/.

I will make a stock sprout up for David;
I will prepare a lamp for my anointed.
I will cover his enemies with shame,
but on him my crown shall shine. R/.

V/. Alleluia

R/. Alleluia

V/. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven

R/. Alleluia.

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
