Daily Mass Reading – 30 July 2015 – Thursday

Thursday in the 17th Week
Saint Peter Chrysologus
First Reading: Exodus 40:16-21, 34-38

16 Moses did exactly as the LORD had commanded him.

17 On the first day of the first month of the second year the Dwelling was erected.

18 It was Moses who erected the Dwelling. He placed its pedestals, set up its boards, put in its bars, and set up its columns.

19 He spread the tent over the Dwelling and put the covering on top of the tent, as the LORD had commanded him.

20 He took the commandments and put them in the ark; he placed poles alongside the ark and set the propitiatory upon it.

21 He brought the ark into the Dwelling and hung the curtain veil, thus screening off the ark of the commandments, as the LORD had commanded him.

34 Then the cloud covered the meeting tent, and the glory of the LORD filled the Dwelling.

35 Moses could not enter the meeting tent, because the cloud settled down upon it and the glory of the LORD filled the Dwelling.

36 Whenever the cloud rose from the Dwelling, the Israelites would set out on their journey.

37 But if the cloud did not lift, they would not go forward; only when it lifted did they go forward.

38 In the daytime the cloud of the LORD was seen over the Dwelling; whereas at night, fire was seen in the cloud by the whole house of Israel in all the stages of their journey.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 84: 3-6, 8

3 My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the LORD. My heart and flesh cry out for the living God.

4 As the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest to settle her young, My home is by your altars, LORD of hosts, my king and my God!

5 Happy are those who dwell in your house! They never cease to praise you. Selah

6 Happy are those who find refuge in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrim roads.

8 They pass through outer and inner wall and see the God of gods on Zion.

Gospel: Matthew 13:47-53

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind.

48 When it is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away.

49 Thus it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous

50 and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.

51 “Do you understand all these things?” They answered, “Yes.”

52 And he replied, “Then every scribe who has been instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his storeroom both the new and the old.”

53 When Jesus finished these parables, he went away from there.
