FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year A

First Reading: Isaiah 58:7-10

A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

Share your bread with those who are hungry,

and shelter homeless poor people;

clothe those you see naked,

and do not hide from the needs of your own flesh and blood.

Then your light will shine like the dawn

and your wound will be quickly healed over.

Your integrity will go before you

and the glory of Your God behind you.

Cry, and God will answer;

call, and God will say, “I am here,”

provided you remove from your midst oppression,

finger-pointing, and vicious rumors.

If you bestow your bread on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted,

then light will rise for you in the darkness,

and the gloom will become for you like midday.

The Word of God recorded in the book of the prophet Isaiah.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 112

R: For the upright, Our God shines like a lamp in the dark.

For the upright, Our God shines like a lamp in the dark,

God is merciful, tenderhearted, virtuous.

Interest is not charged by these good people,

they are honest in all their dealings.

R: For the upright, Our God shines like a lamp in the dark.

Kept safe by virtue, they are ever steadfast,

and leave an imperishable memory behind them;

With constant heart and confidence in Our God,

they need never fear bad news.

R: For the upright, Our God shines like a lamp in the dark.

Steadfast in heart they overcome their fears;

in the end they will triumph over their enemies.

Quick to be generous,

they give to the poor,

their righteousness can never change,

People such as this will always be honored.

R: For the upright, Our God shines like a lamp in the dark.
