Reading 1

Consider your own calling, brothers and sisters.
Not many of you were wise by human standards,
    not many were powerful,
    not many were of noble birth.
Rather, God chose the foolish of the world to shame the wise,
    and God chose the weak of the world to shame the strong,
    and God chose the lowly and despised of the world,
    those who count for nothing,
    to reduce to nothing those who are something,
    so that no human being might boast before God.
It is due to him that you are in Christ Jesus,
    who became for us wisdom from God,
    as well as righteousness, sanctification, and redemption,
    so that, as it is written,
    Whoever boasts, should boast in the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm

R.  In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
O LORD, my heart is not proud,
    nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things,
    nor with things too sublime for me.  
R.  In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted
    my soul like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother’s lap,
    so is my soul within me.  
R.  In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
O Israel, hope in the LORD,
    both now and forever.
R.  In you, Lord, I have found my peace.




R.  Alleluia, alleluia.

Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth;
you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.  

R.  Alleluia, alleluia.


At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
    for although you have hidden these things
    from the wise and the learned
    you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows the Son except the Father,
    and no one knows the Father except the Son
    and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
    and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
    for I am meek and humble of heart;
    and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
