Fr. Matthias Homework from Mass ~ weekend of July 15 & 16

 ISAIAH, Chapter 56: 1-8 (

Salvation for the Just*

1* Thus says the LORD:

Observe what is right, do what is just,

for my salvation is about to come,

my justice, about to be revealed.a

2Happy is the one who does this,

whoever holds fast to it:

Keeping the sabbath without profaning it,

keeping one’s hand from doing any evil.b

Obligations and Promises to Share in the Covenant

3* The foreigner joined to the LORD should not say,

“The LORD will surely exclude me from his people”;

Nor should the eunuch say,

“See, I am a dry tree.”c

4For thus says the LORD:

To the eunuchs who keep my sabbaths,

who choose what pleases me,

and who hold fast to my covenant,d

5I will give them, in my house

and within my walls, a monument and a name*

Better than sons and daughters;

an eternal name, which shall not be cut off, will I give them.

6And foreigners who join themselves to the LORD,

to minister to him,

To love the name of the LORD,

to become his servants—

All who keep the sabbath without profaning it

and hold fast to my covenant,

7* Them I will bring to my holy mountain

and make them joyful in my house of prayer;

Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices

will be acceptable on my altar,

For my house shall be called

a house of prayer for all peoples.e

8* Oracle of the Lord GOD,

who gathers the dispersed of Israel—

Others will I gather to them

besides those already gathered.f
