15th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 65:10, 11, 12-13, 14)

The seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest.

You have visited the land and watered it;
greatly have You enriched it.
God's watercourses are filled;
You have prepared the grain.

Thus have You prepared the land:
drenching its furrows, breaking up its clods,
softening it with showers, blessing its yield.

You have crowned the year with Your bounty,
and Your paths overflow with a rich harvest;
the untilled meadows overflow with it,
and rejoicing clothes the hills.

The fields are garmented with flocks
and the valleys blanketed with grain.
They shout and sing for joy.



Gospel Verse

The seed is the word of God. Christ is the sower. All who come to Him will have life forever.
