    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Colossians 3:14-15, 17, 23-24

    126Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness;and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;male and female he created them. 28And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it;and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth." 29And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit;you shall have them for food. 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so. 31And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.21Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God finished his work which he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done. 3So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all his work which he had done in creation.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 90:2-4, 12-14, 16

    2Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting thou art God. 3Thou turnest man back to the dust, and sayest, "Turn back, O children of men!" 4For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. 12So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. 13Return, O LORD! How long? Have pity on thy servants! 14Satisfy us in the morning with thy steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. 16Let thy work be manifest to thy servants, and thy glorious power to their children.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 13:54-58

    54and coming to his own country he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?" 57And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house." 58And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 5:27-33

    When the court officers had brought the Apostles in
    and made them stand before the Sanhedrin,
    the high priest questioned them,
    "We gave you strict orders did we not,
    to stop teaching in that name.
    Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching
    and want to bring this man's blood upon us."
    But Peter and the Apostles said in reply,
    "We must obey God rather than men.
    The God of our ancestors raised Jesus,
    though you had him killed by hanging him on a tree.
    God exalted him at his right hand as leader and savior
    to grant Israel repentance and forgiveness of sins.
    We are witnesses of these things,
    as is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him."

    When they heard this,
    they became infuriated and wanted to put them to death.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 34:2 and 9, 17-18, 19-20

    R. (7a) The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    I will bless the LORD at all times;
    his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
    Taste and see how good the LORD is;
    blessed the man who takes refuge in him.
    R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD confronts the evildoers,
    to destroy remembrance of them from the earth.
    When the just cry out, the LORD hears them,
    and from all their distress he rescues them.
    R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
    and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
    Many are the troubles of the just man,
    but out of them all the LORD delivers him.
    R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 3:31-36

    The one who comes from above is above all.
    The one who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of earthly things.
    But the one who comes from heaven is above all.
    He testifies to what he has seen and heard,
    but no one accepts his testimony.
    Whoever does accept his testimony certifies that God is trustworthy.
    For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God.
    He does not ration his gift of the Spirit.
    The Father loves the Son and has given everything over to him.
    Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life,
    but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life,
    but the wrath of God remains upon him.
