First Reading 2 Chronicles 24:17-25
ResponseI will keep my faithful love for him always.
Gospel Matthew 6:24-34

R/. I will keep my faithful love for him always.

“With my chosen one I have made a covenant
I have sworn to David my servant;
I will establish your descendants forever
And set up your throne through all ages. R/.

I will keep my faithful love for him always
With him my covenant shall last.
I will establish his descendants forever
And his throne as lasting as the days of heaven. R/.

If his descendents forsake my law
And refuse to walk as I decree,
And if ever they violate my statues,
Failing to keep my commands. R/.

Then I will punish their offences with the rod
Then I will scourge them on account of their guilt
But I will never take back my mercy;
My fidelity will never fail. R/.

V/. Alleluia

R/. Alleluia

V/. Though Jesus Christ was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich

R/. Alleluia.

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
