Readings for the Memorial of Saint Ambrose, bishop and doctor of the ChurchReading 1 Is 40:25-31 To whom can you liken me as an equal?says the Holy One.Lift up your eyes on highand see who has created these things:He leads out their army and numbers them,calling them all by name.By his great might and the strength of his powernot one of them is missing!Why, O Jacob, do you say,and declare, O Israel,“My way is hidden from the LORD,and my right is disregarded by my God”?Do you not knowor have you not heard?The LORD is the eternal God,creator of the ends of the earth.He does not faint nor grow weary,and his knowledge is beyond scrutiny.He gives strength to the fainting;for the weak he makes vigor abound.Though young men faint and grow weary,and youths stagger and fall,They that hope in the LORD will renew their strength,they will soar as with eagles’ wings;They will run and not grow weary,walk and not grow faint. Responsorial Psalm 103:1-2, 3-4, 8 and 10 R.    (1)  O bless the Lord, my soul!Bless the LORD, O my soul;and all my being, bless his holy name.Bless the LORD, O my soul,and forget not all his benefits.R.    O bless the Lord, my soul!He pardons all your iniquities,he heals all your ills.He redeems your life from destruction,he crowns you with kindness and compassion.R.    O bless the Lord, my soul!Merciful and gracious is the LORD,slow to anger and abounding in kindness.Not according to our sins does he deal with us,nor does he requite us according to our crimes.R.    O bless the Lord, my soul!   Alleluia R. Alleluia, alleluia.Behold, the Lord comes to save his people;blessed are those prepared to meet him.R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel Mt 11:28-30 Jesus said to the crowds: “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.” - - -Lectionary for Mass for Use in the Dioceses of the United States, second typical edition, Copyright © 2001, 1998, 1997, 1986, 1970 Confraternity of Christian Doctrine; Psalm refrain © 1968, 1981, 1997, International Committee on English in the Liturgy, Inc.

Reading 1 Is 40:1-11 Comfort, give comfort to my people,says your God.Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to herthat her service is at an end,her guilt is expiated;Indeed, she has received from the hand of the LORDdouble for all her sins.A voice cries out:In the desert prepare the way of the LORD!Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God!Every valley shall be filled in,every mountain and hill shall be made low;The rugged land shall be made a plain,the rough country, a broad valley.Then the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,and all people shall see it together;for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.A voice says, "Cry out!"I answer, "What shall I cry out?""All flesh is grass,and all their glory like the flower of the field.The grass withers, the flower wilts,when the breath of the LORD blows upon it.So then, the people is the grass.Though the grass withers and the flower wilts,the word of our God stands forever."Go up onto a high mountain,Zion, herald of glad tidings;Cry out at the top of your voice,Jerusalem, herald of good news!Fear not to cry outand say to the cities of Judah:Here is your God!Here comes with powerthe Lord GOD,who rules by his strong arm;Here is his reward with him,his recompense before him.Like a shepherd he feeds his flock;in his arms he gathers the lambs,Carrying them in his bosom,and leading the ewes with care. Responsorial Psalm Ps 96:1-2, 3 and 10ac, 11-12, 13 R.(see Isaiah 40:10ab)  The Lord our God comes with power.Sing to the LORD a new song;sing to the LORD, all you lands.Sing to the LORD; bless his name;announce his salvation, day after day.R. The Lord our God comes with power.Tell his glory among the nations;among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.Say among the nations: The LORD is king;he governs the peoples with equity.R. The Lord our God comes with power.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice;let the sea and what fills it resound;let the plains be joyful and all that is in them!Then let all the trees of the forest rejoice.R.

Gospel Mt 18:12-14 Jesus said to his disciples: "What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost." Readings for the Optional Memorial of Saint Nicholas, bishop - - -Lectionary for Mass for

Reading I Is 35:1-10     The desert and the parched land will exult;         the steppe will rejoice and bloom.     They will bloom with abundant flowers,         and rejoice with joyful song.     The glory of Lebanon will be given to them,         the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;     They will see the glory of the LORD,         the splendor of our God.     Strengthen the hands that are feeble,         make firm the knees that are weak,     Say to those whose hearts are frightened:         Be strong, fear not!     Here is your God,         he comes with vindication;     With divine recompense         he comes to save you.     Then will the eyes of the blind be opened,         the ears of the deaf be cleared;     Then will the lame leap like a stag,         then the tongue of the mute will sing.     Streams will burst forth in the desert,         and rivers in the steppe.     The burning sands will become pools,         and the thirsty ground, springs of water;     The abode where jackals lurk         will be a marsh for the reed and papyrus.     A highway will be there,         called the holy way;     No one unclean may pass over it,         nor fools go astray on it.     No lion will be there,         nor beast of prey go up to be met upon it.     It is for those with a journey to make,         and on it the redeemed will walk.     Those whom the LORD has ransomed will return         and enter Zion singing,         crowned with everlasting joy;     They will meet with joy and gladness,         sorrow and mourning will flee. Responsorial Psalm 85:9ab and 10, 11-12, 13-14 R.    (Isaiah 35:4f)  Our God will come to save us! I will hear what God proclaims;     the LORD –for he proclaims peace to his people. Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,     glory dwelling in our land. R.    Our God will come to save us! Kindness and truth shall meet;     justice and peace shall kiss. Truth shall spring out of the earth,     and justice shall look down from heaven. R.    Our God will come to save us! The LORD himself will give his benefits;     our land shall yield its increase. Justice shall walk before him,     and salvation, along the way of his steps. R.    Our God will come to save us! Alleluia R. Alleluia, alleluia. Behold the king will come, the Lord of the earth, and he himself will lift the yoke of our captivity. R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Reading 1 Is 11:1-10 On that day, a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse,and from his roots a bud shall blossom.The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him:a spirit of wisdom and of understanding,a spirit of counsel and of strength,a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD,and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD.Not by appearance shall he judge,nor by hearsay shall he decide,but he shall judge the poor with justice,and decide aright for the land's afflicted.He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth,and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.Justice shall be the band around his waist,and faithfulness a belt upon his hips.Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb,and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;the calf and the young lion shall browse together,with a little child to guide them.The cow and the bear shall be neighbors,together their young shall rest;the lion shall eat hay like the ox.The baby shall play by the cobra's den,and the child lay his hand on the adder's lair.There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain;for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD,as water covers the sea.On that day, the root of Jesse,set up as a signal for the nations,the Gentiles shall seek out,for his dwelling shall be glorious. Responsorial Psalm Ps 72:1-2, 7-8, 12-13, 17 R. (cf. 7)  Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.O God, with your judgment endow the king,and with your justice, the king's son;he shall govern your people with justiceand your afflicted ones with judgment.R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.Justice shall flower in his days,and profound peace, till the moon be no more.May he rule from sea to sea,and from the River to the ends of the earth.R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.For he shall rescue the poor when he cries out,and the afflicted when he has no one to help him.He shall have pity for the lowly and the poor;the lives of the poor he shall save.R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.May his name be blessed forever;as long as the sun his name shall remain.In him shall all the tribes of the earth be blessed;all the nations shall proclaim his happiness.R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever. Reading 2 Rom 15:4-9 Brothers and sisters:Whatever was written previously was written for our instruction, that by endurance and by the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to think in harmony with one another, in keeping with Christ Jesus, that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed you, for the glory of God.For I say that Christ

Readings for the Memorial of Saint Francis Xavier, priestReading 1 IS 30:19-21, 23-26 Thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: O people of Zion, who dwell in Jerusalem, no more will you weep; He will be gracious to you when you cry out, as soon as he hears he will answer you. The Lord will give you the bread you need and the water for which you thirst. No longer will your Teacher hide himself, but with your own eyes you shall see your Teacher, While from behind, a voice shall sound in your ears: “This is the way; walk in it,” when you would turn to the right or to the left. He will give rain for the seed that you sow in the ground, And the wheat that the soil produces will be rich and abundant. On that day your flock will be given pasture and the lamb will graze in spacious meadows; The oxen and the asses that till the ground will eat silage tossed to them with shovel and pitchfork. Upon every high mountain and lofty hill there will be streams of running water. On the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall, The light of the moon will be like that of the sun and the light of the sun will be seven times greater like the light of seven days. On the day the LORD binds up the wounds of his people, he will heal the bruises left by his blows. Responsorial Psalm PS 147:1-2, 3-4, 5-6 R. (see Isaiah 30:18d)  Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.Praise the LORD, for he is good;sing praise to our God, for he is gracious;it is fitting to praise him.The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem;the dispersed of Israel he gathers. R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.He heals the brokenheartedand binds up their wounds.He tells the number of the stars;he calls each by name.R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.Great is our LORD and mighty in power:to his wisdom there is no limit.The LORD sustains the lowly;the wicked he casts to the ground.R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.   Alleluia IS 33:22 R. Alleluia, alleluia.The LORD is our Judge, our Lawgiver, our King;he it is who will save us.R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MT 9:35–10:1, 5A, 6-8 Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom, and curing every disease and illness.  At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”  Then he summoned his Twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure every disease and every illness.  Jesus sent out these Twelve after instructing them thus,

Talk 9 AUDEE VILLARAZA: The luxuries of life vary from season to season. Whatever season you are in will dictate what kind of luxury you enjoy.We have two kids at home and I’ve noticed that the luxury of a mom, especially a new mom, is very different from a mom who has kids all grown up already.What do I mean by that?If you’re a new mom, you can probably relate to this. The luxury of my wife is not being able to shop for whatever it is that she needs; it’s not being able to travel to any destination that she dreams of. No. That’s not her luxury.Would you like to know the luxury of new moms? It’s being able to pee in peace— that precious 20 seconds that your son and your daughter are not looking for you. That’s the luxury for the new mom.I remember our five-year-old was so clingy that when my wife would disappear, for a while, he would start behaving as if the world would crumble.But you know that’s a pattern that happens in life— not just when you have kids.Pattern of Lost IdentityLet’s paint the picture so you can understand it better.Let’s call this person Princess. She’s two years old, she’s clingy to Mommy. When Mommy disappears, she starts crying and acting out. You know, that’s understandable. Kids feel like their parents are part of them. So, when the parents disappear, the kids feel like they’re nothing— their identity is gone.But you know what? One day will comewhen Princess will grow up. And eventually, she will also outgrow Mommy. But in reality, she’s not outgrowing Mommy. You know what’s happening? She’s replacing Mommy with something else— whether it’s a barkada at the age of 15, whether it’s a job at the age of 21, whether it’s a boyfriend at the age of 25, whether it’s a spouse at the age of 32.But here’s one thing: I’ll show you the pattern. Eventually, Princess grows up. She replaces Mommy. She takes control of her life. And for Princess,15 years old, the same pattern happens. How? Through her barkada.One day, her barkada forgets to invite her to their special party. So, she starts crying, “They are not really my friend.”So, she starts looking for other friends. Eventually, life becomes good because they text her again.But at the age of 21, eventually, she outgrows her barkada because of her job — she now has a career.But one day will come and the company will downsize and then she gets retrenched and now she’s asking, “Who am I without my job?”So, she tries to look for another job to control things.But then eventually, her job is replaced by a boyfriend or a girlfriend. And then one day, that boyfriend dumps her, or that girlfriend breaks up with her.Now, she doesn’t know her identity.And then a day will come, at the age of 32, when she will see all of her friends now married, each with two babies.Now she’s struggling,

Reading 1 IS 29:17-24 Thus says the Lord GOD:But a very little while,and Lebanon shall be changed into an orchard,and the orchard be regarded as a forest!On that day the deaf shall hearthe words of a book;And out of gloom and darkness,the eyes of the blind shall see.The lowly will ever find joy in the LORD,and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.For the tyrant will be no moreand the arrogant will have gone;All who are alert to do evil will be cut off,those whose mere word condemns a man,Who ensnare his defender at the gate,and leave the just man with an empty claim.Therefore thus says the LORD,the God of the house of Jacob,who redeemed Abraham:Now Jacob shall have nothing to be ashamed of,nor shall his face grow pale.When his children seethe work of my hands in his midst,They shall keep my name holy;they shall reverence the Holy One of Jacob,and be in awe of the God of Israel.Those who err in spirit shall acquire understanding,and those who find fault shall receive instruction. Responsorial Psalm PS 27:1, 4, 13-14 R. (1a)  The Lord is my light and my salvation.The LORD is my light and my salvation;whom should I fear?The LORD is my life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid?R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.One thing I ask of the LORD;this I seek:To dwell in the house of the LORDall the days of my life,That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORDand contemplate his temple.R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORDin the land of the living.Wait for the LORD with courage;be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.   Alleluia  R. Alleluia, alleluia.Behold, our Lord shall come with power;he will enlighten the eyes of his servants.R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MT 9:27-31 As Jesus passed by, two blind men followed him, crying out, “Son of David, have pity on us!”  When he entered the house, the blind men approached him and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?”  “Yes, Lord,” they said to him.  Then he touched their eyes and said, “Let it be done for you according to your faith.”  And their eyes were opened.  Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.”  But they went out and spread word of him through all that land. - - -Lectionary for Mass for Use in the Dioceses of the United States, second typical edition, Copyright © 2001, 1998, 1997, 1986, 1970 Confraternity of Christian Doctrine; Psalm refrain © 1968, 1981, 1997, International Committee on English in the Liturgy, Inc.

Reading I Is 26:1-6 On that day they will sing this song in the land of Judah:     “A strong city have we;         he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us.     Open up the gates         to let in a nation that is just,         one that keeps faith.     A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace;         in peace, for its trust in you.”     Trust in the LORD forever!         For the LORD is an eternal Rock.     He humbles those in high places,         and the lofty city he brings down;     He tumbles it to the ground,         levels it with the dust.     It is trampled underfoot by the needy,         by the footsteps of the poor. Responsorial Psalm 118:1 and 8-9, 19-21, 25-27a R.    (26a)  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. or: R.    Alleluia.

Reading I Rom 10:9-18 Brothers and sisters: If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. The Scripture says,No one who believes in him will be put to shame. There is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all, enriching all who call upon him.For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach unless they are sent? As it is written,How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news! But not everyone has heeded the good news; for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed what was heard from us? Thus faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ. But I ask, did they not hear? Certainly they did; for     Their voice has gone forth to all the earth,         and their words to the ends of the world. Responsorial Psalm 19:8, 9, 10, 11 R.    (10)  The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just. or: R.    (John 6:63)  Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life. The law of the LORD is perfect,     refreshing the soul; The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,     giving wisdom to the simple. R.    The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just. or: R.    Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life. The precepts of the LORD are right,     rejoicing the heart; The command of the LORD is clear,     enlightening the eye. R.    The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just. or: R.    Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life. The fear of the LORD is pure,     enduring forever; The ordinances of the LORD are true,     all of them just. R.    The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just. or: R.    Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life. They are more precious than gold,     than a heap of purest gold; Sweeter also than syrup     or honey from the comb. R.    The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just. or: R.    Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life. Alleluia Mt 4:19 R. Alleluia, alleluia.
