MALACHI 1:14B -2: 2B, 8-10
A great King am I, says the LORD of
hosts, and my name will be feared among the
nations.
And now, O priests, this commandment is for you:
If you do not listen, if you do not lay it to heart,
to give glory to my name, says the LORD of hosts,
I will send a curse upon you and of your blessing I will make a
curse.
You have turned aside from the way, and have caused many to falter by your
instruction; you have made void the covenant of
Levi, says the LORD of hosts.
I, therefore, have made you contemptible
and base before all the people,
since you do not keep my ways,
but show partiality in your decisions.
Have we not all the one father?
Has not the one God created us?
Why then do we break faith with one
another, violating the covenant of our fathers?

Responsorial Psalm
PS 131:1, 2, 3
R. In you, Lord, I have found my
peace.

O LORD, my heart is not proud, nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things, nor with things too sublime for me.

R. In you, Lord, I have found my
peace.

Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted
my soul like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother's
lap, so is my soul within me.

R. In you, Lord, I have found my
peace.

O Israel, hope in the LORD, both now and forever.

R. In you, Lord, I have found my
peace.

! Thessalonians 2: 7B to 9, 13
Brothers and sisters:
We were gentle among you, as a nursing mother cares for her children.
With such affection for you, we were determined to share with you
not only the gospel of God, but our very selves as well,
so dearly beloved had you become to us.
You recall, brothers and sisters, our
toil and drudgery. Working night and day in order not to
burden any of you, we proclaimed to you the gospel of
God.
And for this reason we too give thanks
to God unceasingly, that, in receiving the word of God from
hearing us, you received not a human word but, as
it truly is, the word of God, which is now at work in you who
believe.

Gospel -- Matthew 23:1-12
Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his
disciples, saying, "The scribes and the Pharisees
have taken their seat on the chair of
Moses. Therefore, do and observe all things
whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example.
For they preach but they do not
practice.
They tie up heavy burdens hard to
carry and lay them on people's shoulders,
but they will not lift a finger to move
them. All their works are performed to be
seen. They widen their phylacteries and
lengthen their tassels.
They love places of honor at banquets,
seats of honor in synagogues, greetings in marketplaces, and the
salutation 'Rabbi.'
As for you, do not be called 'Rabbi.'
You have but one teacher, and you are
all brothers.
Call no one on earth your father; you have but one Father in heaven.
Do not be called 'Master'; you have but one master, the Christ.
The greatest among you must be your servant.
Whoever exalts himself will be
humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be
exalted.
