    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Corinthians 1:18-25

    18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart." 20Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. 22For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 34:2-9

    1I will bless the LORD at all times;his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2My soul makes its boast in the LORD;let the afflicted hear and be glad. 3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! 4I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5Look to him, and be radiant;so your faces shall never be ashamed. 6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. 8O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 5:13-19

    13"You are the salt of the earth;but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men. 14"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. 15Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. 17"Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets;I have come not to abolish them but to fulfil them. 18For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. 19Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven;but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Tb 1:3;2:1a-8

    I, Tobit, have walked all the days of my life
    on the paths of truth and righteousness.
    I performed many charitable works for my kinsmen and my people
    who had been deported with me to Nineveh, in Assyria.

    On our festival of Pentecost, the feast of Weeks,
    a fine dinner was prepared for me, and I reclined to eat.
    The table was set for me,
    and when many different dishes were placed before me,
    I said to my son Tobiah: “My son,
    go out and try to find a poor man
    from among our kinsmen exiled here in Nineveh.
    If he is a sincere worshiper of God, bring him back with you,
    so that he can share this meal with me.
    Indeed, son, I shall wait for you to come back.”

    Tobiah went out to look for some poor kinsman of ours.
    When he returned he exclaimed, “Father!”
    I said to him, “What is it, son?”
    He answered, “Father, one of our people has been murdered!
    His body lies in the market place where he was just strangled!”
    I sprang to my feet, leaving the dinner untouched;
    and I carried the dead man from the street
    and put him in one of the rooms,
    so that I might bury him after sunset.
    Returning to my own quarters, I washed myself
    and ate my food in sorrow.
    I was reminded of the oracle
    pronounced by the prophet Amos against Bethel:

    “All your festivals shall be turned into mourning,
    and all your songs into lamentation.”

    And I wept.
    Then at sunset I went out, dug a grave, and buried him.

    The neighbors mocked me, saying to one another:
    “He is still not afraid!
    Once before he was hunted down for execution
    because of this very thing;
    yet now that he has scarcely escaped,
    here he is again burying the dead!”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 112:1b-2, 3b-4, 5-6

    R. (1b) Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Blessed the man who fears the LORD,
    who greatly delights in his commands.
    His posterity shall be mighty upon the earth;
    the upright generation shall be blessed.
    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    His generosity shall endure forever.
    Light shines through the darkness for the upright;
    he is gracious and merciful and just.
    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Well for the man who is gracious and lends,
    who conducts his affairs with justice;
    He shall never be moved;
    the just man shall be in everlasting remembrance.
    R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 12:1-12

    Jesus began to speak to the chief priests, the scribes,
    and the elders in parables.
    "A man planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it,
    dug a wine press, and built a tower.
    Then he leased it to tenant farmers and left on a journey.
    At the proper time he sent a servant to the tenants
    to obtain from them some of the produce of the vineyard.
    But they seized him, beat him,
    and sent him away empty-handed.
    Again he sent them another servant.
    And that one they beat over the head and treated shamefully.
    He sent yet another whom they killed.
    So, too, many others;some they beat, others they killed.
    He had one other to send, a beloved son.
    He sent him to them last of all, thinking, 'They will respect my son.'
    But those tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir.
    Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.'
    So they seized him and killed him,
    and threw him out of the vineyard.
    What then will the owner of the vineyard do?
    He will come, put the tenants to death,
    and give the vineyard to others.
    Have you not read this Scripture passage:

    The stone that the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone;
    by the Lord has this been done,
    and it is wonderful in our eyes?"

    They were seeking to arrest him, but they feared the crowd,
    for they realized that he had addressed the parable to them.
    So they left him and went away.
