    Reading 1 Jos 3:7-10a, 11, 13-17

    The LORD said to Joshua,
    "Today I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel,
    that they may know I am with you, as I was with Moses.
    Now command the priests carrying the ark of the covenant
    to come to a halt in the Jordan
    when you reach the edge of the waters."

    So Joshua said to the children of Israel,
    "Come here and listen to the words of the LORD, your God.
    This is how you will know that there is a living God in your midst,
    who at your approach will dispossess the Canaanites.
    The ark of the covenant of the LORD of the whole earth
    will precede you into the Jordan.
    When the soles of the feet of the priests carrying the ark of the LORD,
    the Lord of the whole earth,
    touch the water of the Jordan, it will cease to flow;
    for the water flowing down from upstream will halt in a solid bank."

    The people struck their tents to cross the Jordan,
    with the priests carrying the ark of the covenant ahead of them.
    No sooner had these priestly bearers of the ark
    waded into the waters at the edge of the Jordan,
    which overflows all its banks
    during the entire season of the harvest,
    than the waters flowing from upstream halted,
    backing up in a solid mass for a very great distance indeed,
    from Adam, a city in the direction of Zarethan;
    while those flowing downstream toward the Salt Sea of the Arabah
    disappeared entirely.
    Thus the people crossed over opposite Jericho.
    While all Israel crossed over on dry ground,
    the priests carrying the ark of the covenant of the LORD
    remained motionless on dry ground in the bed of the Jordan
    until the whole nation had completed the passage.

    Responsorial Psalm Ps 114:1-2, 3-4, 5-6

    R. Alleluia!
    When Israel came forth from Egypt,
    the house of Jacob from a people of alien tongue,
    Judah became his sanctuary,
    Israel his domain.
    R. Alleluia!
    The sea beheld and fled;
    Jordan turned back.
    The mountains skipped like rams,
    the hills like the lambs of the flock.
    R. Alleluia!
    Why is it, O sea, that you flee?
    O Jordan, that you turn back?
    You mountains, that you skip like rams?
    You hills, like the lambs of the flock?
    R. Alleluia!

    Alleluia Ps 119:135

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Let your countenance shine upon your servant
    and teach me your statutes.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Gospel Mt 18:21–19:1

    Peter approached Jesus and asked him,
    "Lord, if my brother sins against me,
    how often must I forgive him?
    As many as seven times?"
    Jesus answered, "I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.
    That is why the Kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king
    who decided to settle accounts with his servants.
    When he began the accounting,
    a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount.
    Since he had no way of paying it back,
    his master ordered him to be sold,
    along with his wife, his children, and all his property,
    in payment of the debt.
    At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said,
    'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.'
    Moved with compassion the master of that servant
    let him go and forgave him the loan.
    When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants
    who owed him a much smaller amount.
    He seized him and started to choke him, demanding,
    'Pay back what you owe.'
    Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him,
    'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.'
    But he refused.
    Instead, he had the fellow servant put in prison
    until he paid back the debt.
    Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened,
    they were deeply disturbed,
    and went to their master and reported the whole affair.
    His master summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant!
    I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to.
    Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant,
    as I had pity on you?'
    Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers
    until he should pay back the whole debt.
    So will my heavenly Father do to you,
    unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart."

    When Jesus finished these words, he left Galilee
    and went to the district of Judea across the Jordan.
