First Reading for the 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Isaiah 58:7-10

Summary: By sharing with the hungry, sheltering the oppressed, and clothing the naked, one finds healing and God's presence. Helping others brings light in darkness.

The Call to Compassion

Thus says the LORD: Share your bread with the hungry, shelter the oppressed and the homeless; clothe the naked when you see them, and do not turn your back on your own.

Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your wound shall quickly be healed; your vindication shall go before you, and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.

Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer, you shall cry for help, and he will say: Here I am!

If you remove from your midst oppression, false accusation and malicious speech; if you bestow your bread on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; then light shall rise for you in the darkness, and the gloom shall become for you like midday.
