TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year B

First Reading: Isaiah 35:4-7

A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

Strengthen all weary hands, steady all trembling knees;
say to all faint hearts,

“Courage! Do not be afraid!

Look, Your God is coming,
vengeance is coming, the retribution of God;
God is coming to save you.”

Then the eyes of those who are blind will be opened,
the ears of those who are deaf will be cleared;
then those who are lame will leap like deer

and the tongues of those who are mute will sing for joy.

Streams will burst forth in the desert,
and rivers in the wasteland.

The mirages will become real pools,

and the thirsty ground, springs of water.

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

TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year B

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 146

R: Praise Our God, O my soul!

You who keep faith forever,

secures justice for the oppressed,

And gives food to the hungry.

Adonai, You set captives free.

R: Praise Our God, O my soul!

Adonai, You give sight to the blind.

You raise up those that were bowed down

and love the just.

You protect strangers.

R: Praise Our God, O my soul!

The orphan and the widow You sustain,

but the way of the wicked You thwart, Adonai.

You will reign forever;

Your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia!

R:  Praise Our God, O my soul!
