Isaiah 6: 1- 8
6:1 In the year in which king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, sublime and exalted, and the things that were under him filled the temple.
6:2 The Seraphims were standing above the throne. One had six wings, and the other had six wings: with two they were covering his face, and with two they were covering his feet, and with two they were flying.
6:3 And they were crying out to one another, and saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God of hosts! All the earth is filled with his glory!”
6:4 And the lintels above the hinges were shaken at the voice of the one crying out. And the house was filled with smoke.
6:5 And I said: “Woe to me! For I have remained silent. For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live in the midst of a people having unclean lips, and I have seen with my eyes the King, the Lord of hosts!”
6:6 And one of the Seraphims flew to me, and in his hand was a burning coal, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.
6:7 And he touched my mouth, and he said, “Behold, this has touched your lips, and so your iniquities will be taken away, and your sin will be cleansed.”
6:8 And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send?” and, “Who will go for us?” And I said: “Here I am. Send me.”
The Holy Gospel According to Matthew 10: 24- 33
10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus, answering again, said to them: “Little sons, how difficult it is for those who trust in money to enter into the kingdom of God!
10:25 It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for the rich to enter into the kingdom of God.”
10:26 And they wondered even more, saying among themselves, “Who, then, can be saved?”
10:27 And Jesus, gazing at them, said: “With men it is impossible; but not with God. For with God all things are possible.”
10:28 And Peter began to say to him, “Behold, we have left all things and have followed you.”
10:29 In response, Jesus said: “Amen I say to you, There is no one who has left behind house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or land, for my sake and for the Gospel,
10:30 who will not receive one hundred times as much, now in this time: houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and land, with persecutions, and in the future age eternal life.
10:31 But many of the first shall be last, and the last shall be first.”
