First Reading – Esther C:12, 14-16, 23-25

12  Queen Esther, seized with mortal anguish, had recourse to the LORD.

14  She lay prostrate upon the ground, together with her handmaids, from morning until evening, and said: “God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, blessed are you. Help me, who am alone and have no help but you,

15  for I am taking my life in my hand.

Protect your phone line

16  As a child I used to hear from the books of my forefathers that you, O LORD, always free those who are pleasing to you.

24  Now help me, who am alone and have no one but you, O LORD, my God. “And now, come to help me, an orphan.

24  Put in my mouth persuasive words in the presence of the lion and turn his heart to hatred for our enemy, so that he and those who are in league with him may perish.

25  Save us from the hand of our enemies; turn our mourning into gladness and our sorrows into wholeness.”

Responsorial Psalm – Ps. 138:1-2AB, 2CDE-3, 7C-8

R. (3a) Lord, on the day I called for help, you answered me.

1  I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,

for you have heard the words of my mouth;

in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;

2AB  I will worship at your holy temple

and give thanks to your name.

R. Lord, on the day I called for help, you answered me.

2CDE  Because of your kindness and your truth;

for you have made great above all things

your name and your promise.

When I called, you answered me;

you built up strength within me.

R. Lord, on the day I called for help, you answered me.

7C  Your right hand saves me.

8  The LORD will complete what he has done for me;

your kindness, O LORD, endures forever;

forsake not the work of your hands.

R. Lord, on the day I called for help, you answered me.

Verse before the Gospel – Psalms 51:12A, 14A

12A  A clean heart create for me, O God;

14A  give me back the  joy of your salvation.

Gospel reading for March 2 2023 – Matthew 7:7-12

Jesus said to his disciples: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asked for a loaf of bread,

10  or a snake when he asked for a fish?

11  If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.
