The immeasurable greatness of God

From the heart of the tempest the Lord gave Job his answer. He said:
Have you ever in your life given orders to the morning
  or sent the dawn to its post,
telling it to grasp the earth by its edges
  and shake the wicked out of it,
when it changes the earth to sealing clay
  and dyes it as a man dyes clothes;
stealing the light from wicked men
  and breaking the arm raised to strike?
Have you journeyed all the way to the sources of the sea,
  or walked where the Abyss is deepest?
Have you been shown the gates of Death
  or met the janitors of Shadowland?
Have you an inkling of the extent of the earth?
  Tell me all about it if you have!
Which is the way to the home of the light,
  and where does darkness live?
You could then show them the way to their proper places,
  or put them on the path to where they live!
If you know all this, you must have been born with them,
  you must be very old by now!
Job replied to the Lord:
My words have been frivolous: what can I reply?
  I had better lay my finger on my lips.
I have spoken once... I will not speak again;
  more than once... I will add nothing.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 138(139):1-3,7-10,13-14 ©
Lead me, O Lord, in the path of life eternal.
O Lord, you search me and you know me,
  you know my resting and my rising,
  you discern my purpose from afar.
You mark when I walk or lie down,
  all my ways lie open to you.
Lead me, O Lord, in the path of life eternal.
O where can I go from your spirit,
  or where can I flee from your face?
If I climb the heavens, you are there.
  If I lie in the grave, you are there.
Lead me, O Lord, in the path of life eternal.
If I take the wings of the dawn
  and dwell at the sea’s furthest end,
even there your hand would lead me,
  your right hand would hold me fast.
Lead me, O Lord, in the path of life eternal.
For it was you who created my being,
  knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I thank you for the wonder of my being,
  for the wonders of all your creation.
Lead me, O Lord, in the path of life eternal.

Anyone who rejects me rejects the one who sent me

Jesus said to his disciples:
  ‘Alas for you, Chorazin! Alas for you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. And still, it will not go as hard with Tyre and Sidon at the Judgement as with you. And as for you, Capernaum, did you want to be exalted high as heaven? You shall be thrown down to hell.
  ‘Anyone who listens to you listens to me; anyone who rejects you rejects me, and those who reject me reject the one who sent me.’

2 Timothy 3:14-17 ©

All scripture is inspired by God and can profitably be used for teaching

You must keep to what you have been taught and know to be true; remember who your teachers were, and how, ever since you were a child, you have known the holy scriptures – from these you can learn the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All scripture is inspired by God and can profitably be used for teaching, for refuting error, for guiding people’s lives and teaching them to be holy. This is how the man who is dedicated to God becomes fully equipped and ready for any good work.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 118(119):9-14 ©
Lord, teach me your statutes.
How shall the young remain sinless?
  By obeying your word.
I have sought you with all my heart;
  let me not stray from your commands.
Lord, teach me your statutes.
I treasure your promise in my heart
  lest I sin against you.
Blessed are you, O Lord;
  teach me your statutes.
Lord, teach me your statutes.
With my tongue I have recounted
  the decrees of your lips.
I rejoiced to do your will
  as though all riches were mine.
Lord, teach me your statutes.

Gospel
Matthew 13:47-52 ©

The fishermen collect the good fish and throw away those that are no use

Jesus said to the crowds: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea that brings in a haul of all kinds. When it is full, the fishermen haul it ashore; then, sitting down, they collect the good ones in a basket and throw away those that are no use. This is how it will be at the end of time: the angels will appear and separate the wicked from the just to throw them into the blazing furnace where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.
  ‘Have you understood all this?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ And he said to them, ‘Well then, every scribe who becomes a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out from his storeroom things both new and old.’
