Reading 1: Is 56:1, 6-7
Thus says the Lord: Preserve judgment, and accomplish justice. For my salvation is close to its arrival, and my justice is close to being revealed.

And the sons of the new arrival, who adhere to the Lord so as to worship him and to love his name, shall be his servants: all who keep the Sabbath without profaning it, and who hold to my covenant. I will lead them to my holy mountain, and I will gladden them in my house of prayer. Their holocausts and their victims will be pleasing to me upon my altar. For my house will be called the house of prayer for all peoples.

Responsorial Psalm: Ps 67:2-3, 5, 6, 8
R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

May God have mercy on us, and bless us: may he cause the light of his face to shine upon us, and may he have mercy on us. That we may know your way upon earth: your salvation in all nations.
R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

Let the nations be glad and rejoice: for you judge the people with justice, and direct the nations upon earth.
R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

Let the people, O God, confess to you: let all the people give praise to you. May God bless us: and all the ends of the earth fear him.
R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

Reading 2: Rom 11:13-15, 29-32
For I say to you Gentiles: Certainly, as long as I am an Apostle to the Gentiles, I will honor my ministry, in such a way that I might provoke to rivalry those who are my own flesh, and so that I may save some of them. For if their loss is for the reconciliation of the world, what could their return be for, except life out of death?

For the gifts and the call of God are without regret. And just as you also, in times past, did not believe in God, but now you have obtained mercy because of their unbelief, so also have these now not believed, for your mercy, so that they might obtain mercy also. For God has enclosed everyone in unbelief, so that he may have mercy on everyone.

Alleluia: Cf. Mt 4:23
R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Jesus proclaimed the Gospel of the kingdom
and cured every disease among the people.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel: Matthew 15:21-28
And departing from there, Jesus withdrew into the areas of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a woman of Canaan, going out from those parts, cried out, saying to him: “Take pity on me, Lord, Son of David. My daughter is badly afflicted by a demon.” He did not say a word to her. And his disciples, drawing near, petitioned him, saying: “Dismiss her, for she is crying out after us.” And responding, he said, “I was not sent except to the sheep who have fallen away from the house of Israel.” But she approached and adored him, saying, “Lord, help me.” And responding, he said, “It is not good to take the bread of the children and cast it to the dogs.” But she said, “Yes, Lord, but the young dogs also eat from the crumbs that fall from the table of their masters.” Then Jesus, responding, said to her: “O woman, great is your faith. Let it be done for you just as you wish.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
