First Reading – Job 38:1, 12-21; 40:3-5

1 The LORD addressed Job out of the storm and said:

12 Have you ever in your lifetime commanded the morning and shown the dawn its place

13 For taking hold of the ends of the earth, till the wicked are shaken from its surface?

14 The earth is changed as is clay by the seal, and dyed as though it were a garment;

15 But from the wicked the light is withheld, and the arm of pride is shattered.

16 Have you entered into the sources of the sea, or walked about in the depths of the abyss?

17 Have the gates of death been shown to you, or have you seen the gates of darkness?

18 Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth? Tell me, if you know all:

19 Which is the way to the dwelling place of light, and where is the abode of darkness,

20 That you may take them to their boundaries and set them on their homeward paths?

21 You know, because you were born before them, and the number of your years is great!

1 Then Job answered the LORD and said:

2 Behold, I am of little account; what can I answer you? I put my hand over my mouth.

3 Though I have spoken once, I will not do so again; though twice, I will do so no more.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 139:1-3, 7-8, 9-10, 13-14AB

R. (24b) Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.

1 O LORD, you have probed me and you know me;

2 you know when I sit and when I stand;

you understand my thoughts from afar.

3 My journeys and my rest you scrutinize,

with all my ways you are familiar.

R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.

7 Where can I go from your spirit?

From your presence where can I flee?

8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;

if I sink to the nether world, you are present there.

R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.

9 If I take the wings of the dawn,

if I settle at the farthest limits of the sea,

10 Even there your hand shall guide me,

and your right hand hold me fast.

R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.

13 Truly you have formed my inmost being;

you knit me in my mother’s womb.

14AB I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made;

wonderful are your works.

R. Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way.

Alleluia – Psalms 103:21

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

103 Bless the LORD, all you angels,

you ministers, who do his will.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Reading for October 4 2024 – Matthew 18:1-5, 10

1 The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?”

2 He called a child over, placed it in their midst,

3 and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven.

4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.

10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”
