Scripture Readings at Mass Sunday, August 16, 2020

What to listen for in today’s Bible readings

Today’s readings speak of Jesus’ mission to gather all nations to Himself. In the first reading, Isaiah predicts a day when even the “foreigners who join themselves to the LORD” will serve as priests at the Altar of the Lord. The Responsorial Psalm picks up this theme, as the response is “O God, let all the nations praise you!” In the Gospel, Jesus is in the pagan territory of Tyre and Sidon, formerly lands occupied by the ten lost tribes of Israel. A pagan woman acknowledges Jesus as the Messiah, as a sign that one day even the pagans will worship Jesus as the true God.
