FIRST READING (Peter 1: 3-4)

Brothers and sisters:

Praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is so good, and by raising Jesus from death, he has given us new life and a hope that lives on.

God has something stored up for you in heaven, where it will never decay or be ruined or disappear.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM

Response: Happy are those who fear the Lord.

GOSPEL (Matthew 13: 44-46)

Jesus said to his disciples:

"The kingdom of heaven is like what happens when someone finds treasure hidden in a field and buries it again. A person like that is happy and goes and sells everything in order to buy that field.

The kingdom of heaven is like what happens when a shop owner is looking for fine pearls. After finding a very valuable one, the owner goes and sells everything in order to buy that pearl."
