“Like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand.”
JEREMIAH 18: 1 – 6
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. Then the word of the Lord came to me: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? Says the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.”
The Word of the Lord.
Psalm 146: 1b – 6ab (R.) 5a
R/. Blessed is he who is helped by Jacob’s God.
My soul, give praise to the Lord;
I will praise the Lord all my life,
sing praise to my God while I live. R/.
Put no trust in princes,
in mortal man who cannot save.
Take their breath, they return to the earth,
and their plans that day come to nothing. R/.
Blessed is he who is helped by Jacob’s God;
whose hope is in the Lord his God,
who made the heavens and the earth,
the seas and all they contain. R/.
Acts 16: 14b
Open our hearts, O Lord, that we may give heed to the words of your Son. Alleluia
“They sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad.”
MATTHEW 13: 47 – 53
At that time: Jesus said to the crowds, “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind; when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad. So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous, and throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and quashing of teeth. “Have you understood all this?” They said to him, “Yes.” And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.” And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there.
