15th. August 2020

Twentieth Sunday of the Year

First Reading:

A reading from the Prophet Isaiah:

Thus says the Lord: Have a care for justice, act with integrity, for soon my salvation will come and my integrity be manifest.  Foreigners who have attached themselves to the Lord to serve him and to love his name and be his servants – all who observe the Sabbath, not profaning it, and cling to my covenant – these I will bring to my holy mountain. I will make them joyful in my house of prayer. Their holocausts and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar, for my house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm

Response:     Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you.

O God, be gracious and bless us and let your face shed its light upon us.

So will your ways be known upon earth and all nations learn your saving help.      R.

Let the nations be glad and exult  for you rule the world with justice.

With fairness you rule the peoples, you guide the nations on earth.                         R.

Let the peoples praise you, O God;  let all the peoples praise you.

May God still give us his blessing till the ends of the earth revere him.                    R.

Second Reading

A Reading from St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans.

Let me tell you pagans this: I have been sent to the pagans as their apostle, and I am proud of being sent, but the purpose of it is to make my own people envious of you, and in this way save some of them. Since their rejection meant the reconciliation of the world, do you know what their admission will mean? Nothing less than a resurrection from the dead! God never takes back his gifts or revokes his choice.

Just as you changed from being disobedient to God, and now enjoy mercy because of their disobedience, so those who are disobedient now – and only because of the mercy shown to you – will also enjoy mercy eventually. God has imprisoned all men in their own disobedience only to show mercy to all mankind.

The Word of the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation:

Alleluia, alleluia!

Jesus proclaimed the Good News of the kingdom  and cured all kinds of sickness among the people.
