    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Revelation 7:2-4, 9-14

    2Then I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea, 3saying, "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God upon their foreheads." 4And I heard the number of the sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand sealed, out of every tribe of the sons of Israel, 9After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10and crying out with a loud voice, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb!" 11And all the angels stood round the throne and round the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12saying, "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God for ever and ever! Amen." 13Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, "Who are these, clothed in white robes, and whence have they come?" 14I said to him, "Sir, you know." And he said to me, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation;they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 24:1-6

    1The earth is the LORD's and the fulness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein;2for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers. 3Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. 5He will receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation. 6Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 John 3:1-3

    1See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God;and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2Beloved, we are God's children now;it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3And every one who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 5:1-12

    1Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him. 2And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: 3"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7"Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. 8"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11"Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dt 6:2-6

    Moses spoke to the people, saying:
    "Fear the LORD, your God,
    and keep, throughout the days of your lives,
    all his statutes and commandments which I enjoin on you,
    and thus have long life.
    Hear then, Israel, and be careful to observe them,
    that you may grow and prosper the more,
    in keeping with the promise of the LORD, the God of your fathers,
    to give you a land flowing with milk and honey.
    "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone!
    Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God,
    with all your heart,
    and with all your soul,
    and with all your strength.
    Take to heart these words which I enjoin on you today."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 18:2-3, 3-4, 47, 51

    R. (2)
    I love you, Lord, my strength.
    I love you, O LORD, my strength,
    O LORD, my rock, my fortress, my deliverer.
    R.I love you, Lord, my strength.
    My God, my rock of refuge,
    my shield, the horn of my salvation, my stronghold!
    Praised be the LORD, I exclaim,
    and I am safe from my enemies.
    R.I love you, Lord, my strength.
    The LORD lives! And blessed be my rock!
    Extolled be God my savior.
    You who gave great victories to your king
    and showed kindness to your anointed.
    R.I love you, Lord, my strength.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 7:23-28

    Brothers and sisters:
    The levitical priests were many
    because they were prevented by death from remaining in office,
    but Jesus, because he remains forever,
    has a priesthood that does not pass away.
    Therefore, he is always able to save those who approach God through him,
    since he lives forever to make intercession for them.
    It was fitting that we should have such a high priest:
    holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners,
    higher than the heavens.
    He has no need, as did the high priests,
    to offer sacrifice day after day,
    first for his own sins and then for those of the people;
    he did that once for all when he offered himself.
    For the law appoints men subject to weakness to be high priests,
    but the word of the oath, which was taken after the law,
    appoints a son,
    who has been made perfect forever.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 12:28b-34

    One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him,
    "Which is the first of all the commandments?"
    Jesus replied, "The first is this:
    Hear, O Israel!
    The Lord our God is Lord alone!
    You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
    with all your soul,
    with all your mind,
    and with all your strength.
    The second is this:
    You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    There is no other commandment greater than these."
    The scribe said to him, "Well said, teacher.
    You are right in saying,
    'He is One and there is no other than he.'
    And 'to love him with all your heart,
    with all your understanding,
    with all your strength,
    and to love your neighbor as yourself'
    is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices."
    And when Jesus saw that he answered with understanding,
    he said to him,
    "You are not far from the kingdom of God."
    And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
