First reading
Ecclesiasticus 44:1,10-15 ©
Let us praise illustrious men,
  our ancestors in their successive generations.
Here is a list of generous men
  whose good works have not been forgotten.
In their descendants there remains
  a rich inheritance born of them.
Their descendants stand by the covenants
  and, thanks to them, so do their children’s children.
Their offspring will last for ever,
  their glory will not fade.
Their bodies have been buried in peace,
  and their name lives on for all generations.
The peoples will proclaim their wisdom,
  the assembly will celebrate their praises.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 131:11,13-14,17-18 ©
The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David.
The Lord swore an oath to David;
  he will not go back on this word:
‘A son, the fruit of your body,
  will I set upon your throne.’
The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David.
For the Lord has chosen Zion;
  he has desired it for his dwelling:
‘This is my resting-place for ever;
  here have I chosen to live.
The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David.
‘There David’s stock will flower;
  I will prepare a lamp for my anointed.
I will cover his enemies with shame
  but on him my crown shall shine.’
The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David.

Gospel
Matthew 13:16-17 ©
Happy are your eyes because they see, your ears because they hear! I tell you solemnly, many prophets and holy men longed to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.
