EIGHTEENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR C.

FIRST READING
Because your sins are flagrant, I have done these things to you. I will restore the tents of Jacob.
JEREMIAH 30: 1 – 2, 12 – 15, 18 – 22

The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Write in a book all the words that I have spoken to you. “For thus says the Lord: Your hurt is incurable, and your wound is grievous. There is none to uphold your cause, no medicine for your wound, no healing for you. All your lovers have forgotten you; they care nothing for you; for I have dealt you the blow of an enemy, the punishment of a merciless foe, because your guilt is great, because your sins are flagrant. Why do you cry out over your hurt? Your pain is incurable. Because your guilt is great, because your sins are flagrant, I have done these things to you. Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob, and have compassion on his dwellings; the city shall be rebuilt upon its mound, and the palace shall stand where it used to be. Out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving, and the voices of those who make merry. I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will make them honoured, and they shall not be small. Their children shall be as they were of old, and their congregation shall be established before me; and I will punish all who oppress them. Their prince shall be one of themselves, their ruler shall come forth from their midst; I will make him draw near, and he shall approach me, for who would dare of himself to approach me? Says the Lord. And you shall be my people, and I will be your God.”

The Word of the Lord

RESPONSORIAL PSALM
Psalm 102: 16 – 18, 19 – 21, 22 – 23 (R.) 17

R/. The Lord shall build up Sion, He will appear in all his glory

The nation shall fear the name of the Lord,
And all the earth’s kings your glory.
When the Lord shall build up Sion,
He will turn to the prayers of the helpless;
He will not despise their prayers. R/.

Let this be written for ages to come,
that a people yet unborn may praise the Lord;
the Lord looked down from heaven to the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners,
and free those condemned to die. R/.

The children of your servants shall dwell untroubled,
And their descendants established before you.
May the name of the Lord be proclaimed in Sion,
And his praise in Jerusalem,
When peoples and kingdoms are gathered as one
To offer their worship to the Lord. R/.

GOSPEL
MATTHEW 14: 22 – 36

[After the crowd ate and were satisfied,] Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.” And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshipped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret. And when the men of that place recognised him, they sent word around to all that region and brought to him all who were sick and implored him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.
