Daily Mass Reading – 18 July 2015 – Saturday

Saturday in the 15th Week
First Reading: Exodus 12:37-42

37 The Israelites set out from Rameses for Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, not counting the children.

38 A crowd of mixed ancestry also went up with them, besides their livestock, very numerous flocks and herds.

39 Since the dough they had brought out of Egypt was not leavened, they baked it into unleavened loaves. They had been rushed out of Egypt and had no opportunity even to prepare food for the journey.

40 The time the Israelites had stayed in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years.

41 At the end of four hundred and thirty years, all the hosts of the LORD left the land of Egypt on this very date.

42 This was a night of vigil for the LORD, as he led them out of the land of Egypt; so on this same night all the Israelites must keep a vigil for the LORD throughout their generations.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 136: 1, 23-24, 10-15

1 Praise the LORD, who is so good; God’s love endures forever;

23 The LORD remembered us in our misery, God’s love endures forever;

24 Freed us from our foes, God’s love endures forever;

10 Who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, God’s love endures forever;

11 And led Israel from their midst, God’s love endures forever;

12 With mighty hand and outstretched arm, God’s love endures forever;

13 Who split in two the Red Sea, God’s love endures forever;

14 And led Israel through, God’s love endures forever;

15 But swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea, God’s love endures forever;

Gospel: Matthew 12:14-21

14 But the Pharisees went out and took counsel against him to put him to death.

15 When Jesus realized this, he withdrew from that place. Many (people) followed him, and he cured them all,

16 but he warned them not to make him known.

17 This was to fulfill what had been spoken through Isaiah the prophet:

18 “Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom I delight; I shall place my spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.

19 He will not contend or cry out, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.

20 A bruised reed he will not break, a smoldering wick he will not quench, until he brings justice to victory.

21 And in his name the Gentiles will hope.”
