Proper Readings At Mass

First reading - Isaiah 66:10-14
 
Rejoice, Jerusalem,
be glad for her, all you who love her!
Rejoice, rejoice for her,
all you who mourned her!
That you may be suckled, filled,
from her consoling breast,
that you may savour with delight
her glorious breasts.
For thus says the Lord:
Now towards her I send flowing
peace, like a river,
and like a stream in spate
the glory of the nations.
At her breast will her nurslings be carried
and fondled in her lap.
Like a son comforted by his mother
will I comfort you.
And by Jerusalem you will be comforted.
At the sight your heart will rejoice,
and your bones flourish like the grass.
To his servants the Lord will reveal his hand.

Psalm 130:1-3
Keep my soul in peace before you, O Lord.
O Lord, my heart is not proud
  nor haughty my eyes.
I have not gone after things too great
  nor marvels beyond me.
Keep my soul in peace before you, O Lord.
Truly I have set my soul
  in silence and peace.
A weaned child on its mother’s breast,
  even so is my soul.
Keep my soul in peace before you, O Lord.
O Israel, hope in the Lord
  both now and forever.
Keep my soul in peace before you, O Lord.

for revealing the mysteries of the kingdom
to mere children.
Alleluia!

Gospel --- Matthew 18:1-4
The disciples came to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ So he called a little child to him and set the child in front of them. Then he said, ‘I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.’

Aktar ma tersaq lejn Ġesù, aktar tiċċekken, tintelaq għar-rieda qaddisa tiegħU, għal dak kollu li jippermetti f'ħajtek.
 
The closer you come to Jesus, the humbler you become, bowing down to His holy will, to all that He permits in your life.
 
 
Salm 69:9 & Ġwanni 2:17 - "Il-ħeġġa għal darek fnietni."
 
Psalm 69:9 & John 2:17 - " Zeal for your house will consume me."

 GOSPEL - October 1 -- Mt 18:1-4 -- St Therese of Lisieux -- Santa Tereża tal-Bambin Ġesù

 18. Min hu l-akbar fis-Saltna tas-Smewwiet
(Mk 9, 33-37; Lq 9, 46-48)


[Mt:18:1] F'dak il-waqt resqu d-dixxipli lejn Ġesù u staqsewh: "Mela min hu l-akbar fis-Saltna tas-Smewwiet?" [Mt:18:2] Hu sejjaħ lejh tfajjel ċkejken, qiegħdu f'nofshom [Mt:18:3] u qalilhom,"Tassew ngħidilkom, li jekk intom ma terġgħux issiru bħat-tfal iż-żgħar, żgur li ma tidħlux fis-Saltna tas-Smewwiet. [Mt:18:4] U għalhekk l-ikbar wieħed fis-Saltna tas-Smewwiet huwa dak li jċekken lilu nnifsu bħal dan it-tfajjel żgħir.
