Official Translation

Reading 1 – Hosea 2.16, 17c-18, 21-22

Thus says the LORD:
I will allure her,
and bring her into the desert,
and speak tenderly to her.
and she will respond there,
as in the days of her youth,
and as in the day when she
came up out of the land of Egypt.

On that day,” says the Lord,
“you will call me ‘my husband,’
and no longer call me ‘my baal.’

I will betroth you to me forever.
Yes, I will betroth you to me
in righteousness, in justice,
in loving kindness, and in compassion.
I will even betroth you to me in faithfulness;
and you shall know the Lord.

Responsorial – Psalm 145:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9 Resp. 8a

R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

Every day I will bless you,
and I will praise your name forever; yea, forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and of his greatness there is no end.

R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

Generation upon generation will praise your works
and declare your power.
They will speak of the magnificence of your glorious holiness:
and tell of your wondrous works.

R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

Men will speak of the might of your awesome acts.
I will declare your greatness.
They will utter the memory of your great goodness,
and will sing of your righteousness.

R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

The Lord is gracious, merciful,
slow to anger, and of great loving kindness.
The Lord is good to all.
His tender mercies are upon all his works.

R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

Gospel – Matthew 9.18-26

While Jesus told these things to them,
behold, a ruler came
and knelt down before him, saying,
“My daughter has just died,
but come and lay your hand on her,
and she will live.”

Jesus got up and followed him,
as did his disciples.
Behold, a woman who had
an issue of blood for twelve years
came behind him, and touched
the fringe of his garment;
for she said within herself,
“If I just touch his garment,
I will be made well.”
But Jesus, turning around and seeing her, said,
“Daughter, take courage!
Your faith has made you well.”
And the woman was made well from that hour.

When Jesus came into the ruler’s house,
and saw the flute players,
and the crowd in noisy disorder,
he said to them,
“Leave, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping.”
They were ridiculing him.
But when the crowd had been put out,
he entered in, took her by the hand,
and the girl arose.

The report of this went out into all that land.
