First Reading

Wisdom 12, 13.16-19

For there is no god, other than you, who cares for every one, to whom you have to prove that your sentences have been just.

For your strength is the basis of your saving justice, and your sovereignty over all makes you lenient to all.

You show your strength when people will not believe in your absolute power, and you confound any insolence in those who do know it.

But you, controlling your strength, are mild in judgement, and govern us with great lenience, for you have only to will, and your power is there.

By acting thus, you have taught your people that the upright must be kindly to his fellows, and you have given your children the good hope that after sins you will grant repentance.
