Reading 1 Is 48:17-19
Responsorial Psalm Ps 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6
Gospel Mt 11:16-19Jesus said to the crowds:"To what shall I compare this generation? It is like children who sit in marketplaces and call to one another,'We played the flute for you, but you did not dance,we sang a dirge but you did not mourn.' For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said,'He is possessed by a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said,'Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard,a friend of tax collectors and sinners.' But wisdom is vindicated by her works."
