First Reading – Jeremiah 1:1, 4-10

1 The words of Jeremiah, son of Hilkiah, of a priestly family in Anathoth, in the land of Benjamin.

4 The word of the LORD came to me thus:

5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.

6 “Ah, Lord GOD!” I said, “I know not how to speak; I am too young.”

7 But the LORD answered me, Say not, “I am too young.” To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you, you shall speak.

8 Have no fear before them, because I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.

9 Then the LORD extended his hand and touched my mouth, saying, See, I place my words in your mouth!

10 This day I set you over nations and over kingdoms, To root up and to tear down, to destroy and to demolish, to build and to plant.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 71:1-2, 3-4A, 5-6AB, 15 AND 17

R. (see 15ab) I will sing of your salvation.

1 In you, O LORD, I take refuge;

let me never be put to shame.

2 In your justice rescue me, and deliver me;

incline your ear to me, and save me.

R. I will sing of your salvation.

3 Be my rock of refuge,

a stronghold to give me safety,

for you are my rock and my fortress.

4A O my God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked.

R. I will sing of your salvation.

5 For you are my hope, O Lord;

my trust, O God, from my youth.

6AB On you I depend from birth;

from my mother’s womb you are my strength.

R. I will sing of your salvation.

15 My mouth shall declare your justice,

day by day your salvation.

17 O God, you have taught me from my youth,

and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds.

R. I will sing of your salvation.

Alleluia

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower;

all who come to him will live for ever.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Reading for July 24 2024 – Matthew 13:1-9

1 On that day, Jesus went out of the house and sat down by the sea.

2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd stood along the shore.

3 And he spoke to them at length in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow.

4 And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and birds came and ate it up.

5 Some fell on rocky ground, where it had little soil. It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep,

6 and when the sun rose it was scorched, and it withered for lack of roots.

7 Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it.

8 But some seed fell on rich soil, and produced fruit, a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.

9 Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
