First Reading: Isaiah 2:1-5
1: The word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2: It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it,
3: and many peoples shall come, and say: "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4: He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5: O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the LORD.
Psalm: Psalms Ps 122:1-2, 3-4, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9
1: I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD!"
2: Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3: Jerusalem, built as a city which is bound firmly together,
4: to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5: There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they prosper who love you!
7: Peace be within your walls, and security within your towers!"
8: For my brethren and companions' sake I will say, "Peace be within you!"
9: For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.
Gospel: Matthew 8:5-11
5 And when he had entered into Capharnaum, there came to him a centurion, beseeching him,
6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, and is grievously tormented.
7 And Jesus saith to him: I will come and heal him.
8 And the centurion, making answer, said: Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
9 For I also am a man subject to authority, having under me soldiers; and I say to this, Go, and he goeth, and to another Come, and he cometh, and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
10 And Jesus hearing this, marvelled; and said to them that followed him. Amen I say to you, I have not found so great faith in Israel.
11 And I say to you that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
