Our readings today

A reading from the Book of Micah

In days to come the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised up above the hills.
Peoples shall stream to it, and many nations 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 instruction,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 
He shall judge between many peoples, and shall arbitrate between strong nations far away;
they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,
   and their spears into pruning-hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more; 
but they shall all sit under their own vines and under their own fig trees,
   and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken. 

5 For all the peoples walk, each in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.

 Micah 4. 1-5

 Micah 4. 1-5

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew                        When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. 2Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:                                       ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.                              ‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.                                          ‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.                                                 ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.      ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.                                                    ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.                                                       ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.                                          ‘Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.                                               ‘Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.                           Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.                        ‘You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.                          ‘You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden.               Matthew 5 .1 - 14
