TWENTY-EIGHTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year A

First Reading: Isaiah 25:6-10

A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

On this mountain,

the God of Hosts will prepare for all peoples

a banquet of rich food, a banquet of fine wines,

food rich and juicy, and fine, aged wines.

On this mountain, the Most High will remove

the mourning veil covering all peoples,

and the shroud covering all nations,

destroying Death forever.

God will wipe away

the tears from every cheek,

and take away the people’s shame everywhere on earth,

for Our God has said so.

On that day it will be said,

“This is Our God,

this is the One for whose salvation we waited,

Adonai is the One in whom we hoped.

We exalt and we rejoice

for we have been saved,

for the hand of the Most High

rests on this mountain.”

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

TWENTY-EIGHTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year A

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 23

R: I will dwell in Your house for years to come.

Adonai, You are my shepherd; I have no wants.

In verdant pastures You give me repose;

Beside restful waters You lead me;

You refresh my soul.

R: I will dwell in Your house for years to come.

You guide me in right paths

for Your Name’s sake.

Even though I walk in the dark valley

I fear no evil; for You are at my side

With Your rod and Your staff

that give me courage.

R: I will dwell in Your house for years to come.

You spread the table before me

in the sight of my foes;

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

R: I will dwell in Your house for years to come.

Only goodness and kindness follow me

all the days of my life;

And I will dwell in Your house

for years to come.

R: I will dwell in Your house for years to come.
