A reading from the prophecy of Isaiah

O Lord, you are my God;   I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things,   plans formed of old, faithful and sure. For you have made the city a heap,   the fortified city a ruin; the palace of aliens is a city no more,   it will never be rebuilt. Therefore strong peoples will glorify you;   cities of ruthless nations will fear you. For you have been a refuge to the poor,   a refuge to the needy in their distress,   a shelter from the rainstorm and a shade from the heat. When the blast of the ruthless was like a winter rainstorm, the noise of aliens like heat in a dry place, you subdued the heat with the shade of clouds;   the song of the ruthless was stilled.

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples   a feast of rich food, a feast of well-matured wines,   of rich food filled with marrow, of well-matured wines strained clear. And he will destroy on this mountain   the shroud that is cast over all peoples,   the sheet that is spread over all nations; he will swallow up death for ever. Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces,   and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth,   for the Lord has spoken. It will be said on that day,   Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us.   This is the Lord for whom we have waited;   let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Isaiah 25.1–9

A reading from the Gospel of Matthew

Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying: ‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. Again he sent other slaves, saying, “Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet.” But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his slaves, maltreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged. He sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then he said to his slaves, “The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.” Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests.

‘But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding robe, and he said to him, “Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?” And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, “Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” For many are called, but few are chosen.’
