First Reading

Sirach 3,2-6.12-14

for the Lord honours the father above his children and upholds the rights of a mother over her sons. Whoever respects a father expiates sins, whoever honours a mother is like someone amassing a fortune. Whoever respects a father will in turn be happy with children, the day he prays for help, he will be heard. Long life comes to anyone who honours a father, whoever obeys the Lord makes a mother happy. My child, support your father in his old age, do not grieve him during his life. Even if his mind should fail, show him sympathy, do not despise him in your health and strength; for kindness to a father will not be forgotten but will serve as reparation for your sins.
