    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Song of Solomon 8:6-7

    6Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm;for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame. 7Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly scorned.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 148:1-2, 11-14

    1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights! 2Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host! 11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! 12Young men and maidens together, old men and children! 13Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted;his glory is above earth and heaven. 14He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his saints, for the people of Israel who are near to him. Praise the LORD!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 10:38-42

    38Now as they went on their way, he entered a village;and a woman named Martha received him into her house. 39And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40But Martha was distracted with much serving;and she went to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me." 41But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;42one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Gn 1:20—2:4a

    God said,
    “Let the water teem with an abundance of living creatures,
    and on the earth let birds fly beneath the dome of the sky.”
    And so it happened:
    God created the great sea monsters
    and all kinds of swimming creatures with which the water teems,
    and all kinds of winged birds.
    God saw how good it was, and God blessed them, saying,
    “Be fertile, multiply, and fill the water of the seas;
    and let the birds multiply on the earth.”
    Evening came, and morning followed–the fifth day.

    Then God said,
    “Let the earth bring forth all kinds of living creatures:
    cattle, creeping things, and wild animals of all kinds.”
    And so it happened:
    God made all kinds of wild animals, all kinds of cattle,
    and all kinds of creeping things of the earth.
    God saw how good it was.
    Then God said:
    “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.
    Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea,
    the birds of the air, and the cattle,
    and over all the wild animals
    and all the creatures that crawl on the ground.”

    God created man in his image;
    in the divine image he created him;
    male and female he created them.

    God blessed them, saying:
    “Be fertile and multiply;
    fill the earth and subdue it.
    Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air,
    and all the living things that move on the earth.”
    God also said:
    “See, I give you every seed-bearing plant all over the earth
    and every tree that has seed-bearing fruit on it to be your food;
    and to all the animals of the land, all the birds of the air,
    and all the living creatures that crawl on the ground,
    I give all the green plants for food.”
    And so it happened.
    God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good.
    Evening came, and morning followed–the sixth day.

    Thus the heavens and the earth and all their array were completed.
    Since on the seventh day God was finished with the work he had been doing,
    he rested on the seventh day from all the work he had undertaken.
    So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy,
    because on it he rested from all the work he had done in creation.

    Such is the story of the heavens and the earth at their creation.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 8:4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    R. (2ab) O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    When I behold your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars which you set in place—
    What is man that you should be mindful of him,
    or the son of man that you should care for him?
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    You have made him little less than the angels,
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
    You have given him rule over the works of your hands,
    putting all things under his feet.
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    All sheep and oxen,
    yes, and the beasts of the field,
    The birds of the air, the fishes of the sea,
    and whatever swims the paths of the seas.
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!

    Alleluia Ps 119:36, 29b

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Incline my heart, O God, to your decrees;
    and favored me with your law.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 7:1-13

    When the Pharisees with some scribes who had come from Jerusalem
    gathered around Jesus,
    they observed that some of his disciples ate their meals
    with unclean, that is, unwashed, hands.
    (For the Pharisees and, in fact, all Jews,
    do not eat without carefully washing their hands,
    keeping the tradition of the elders.
    And on coming from the marketplace
    they do not eat without purifying themselves.
    And there are many other things that they have traditionally observed,
    the purification of cups and jugs and kettles and beds.)
    So the Pharisees and scribes questioned him,
    "Why do your disciples not follow the tradition of the elders
    but instead eat a meal with unclean hands?"
    He responded,
    "Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites,
    as it is written:

    This people honors me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me;
    In vain do they worship me,
    teaching as doctrines human precepts.

    You disregard God's commandment but cling to human tradition."
    He went on to say,
    "How well you have set aside the commandment of God
    in order to uphold your tradition!
    For Moses said,
    Honor your father and your mother,
    and Whoever curses father or mother shall die.
    Yet you say,
    'If someone says to father or mother,
    "Any support you might have had from me is qorban"'
    (meaning, dedicated to God),
    you allow him to do nothing more for his father or mother.
    You nullify the word of God
    in favor of your tradition that you have handed on.
    And you do many such things."
