FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT — Year C

First Reading: Joshua 5:9, 10-12

A reading from the book of the prophet Joshua.

God said to Joshua, “Today I have removed the reproach of Egypt from you.”

While the Israelites were encamped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, they celebrated the Passover on the evening of the fourteenth of the month.  On the day after the Passover they ate of the produce of the land, in the form of unleavened cakes and parched grain.  On that same day after the Passover on which they ate of the produce of the land, the manna ceased.  No longer was there manna for the Israelites, who that year ate of the yield of the land of Canaan.

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

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 34

R: O taste and see that God is good!

I will bless God at all times,

I praise will continually be in my mouth.

My soul will rejoice in Our God,

let the humble hear it and be glad.

R: O taste and see that God is good!

Glorify Our God with me

and let us exalt God’s Name together.

I sought Our God who answered me

and freed me from all my fears.

R: O taste and see that God is good!

Those who look to Our God are radiant,

their faces are never put to shame.

The poor called; Our God heard

and saved them out of all their troubles.

R: O taste and see that God is good!
