    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Isaiah 66, 10-14

    10"Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her;rejoice with her in joy, all you who mourn over her;11that you may suck and be satisfied with her consoling breasts;that you may drink deeply with delight from the abundance of her glory." 12For thus says the LORD: "Behold, I will extend prosperity to her like a river, and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing stream;and you shall suck, you shall be carried upon her hip, and dandled upon her knees. 13As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you;you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. 14You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice;your bones shall flourish like the grass;and it shall be known that the hand of the LORD is with his servants, and his indignation is against his enemies.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Judith 13:18-19

    18And Uzziah said to her, "O daughter, you are blessed by the Most High God above all women on earth;and blessed be the Lord God, who created the heavens and the earth, who has guided you to strike the head of the leader of our enemies.19Your hope will never depart from the hearts of men, as they remember the power of God.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 2:1-11

    1On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there;2Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. 3When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." 4And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." 5His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 6Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 8He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast." So they took it. 9When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom 10and said to him, "Every man serves the good wine first;and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine;but you have kept the good wine until now." 11This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory;and his disciples believed in him.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Kgs 8:22-23, 27-30

    Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD
    in the presence of the whole community of Israel,
    and stretching forth his hands toward heaven,
    he said, "LORD, God of Israel,
    there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below;
    you keep your covenant of mercy with your servants
    who are faithful to you with their whole heart.

    "Can it indeed be that God dwells on earth?
    If the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain you,
    how much less this temple which I have built!
    Look kindly on the prayer and petition of your servant, O LORD, my God,
    and listen to the cry of supplication which I, your servant,
    utter before you this day.
    May your eyes watch night and day over this temple,
    the place where you have decreed you shall be honored;
    may you heed the prayer which I, your servant, offer in this place.
    Listen to the petitions of your servant and of your people Israel
    which they offer in this place.
    Listen from your heavenly dwelling and grant pardon."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 84:3, 4, 5 and 10, 11

    R. (2) How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    My soul yearns and pines
    for the courts of the LORD.
    My heart and my flesh
    cry out for the living God.
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    Even the sparrow finds a home,
    and the swallow a nest
    in which she puts her young?
    Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
    my king and my God!
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    Blessed they who dwell in your house!
    continually they praise you.
    O God, behold our shield,
    and look upon the face of your anointed.
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    I had rather one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
    I had rather lie at the threshold of the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!

    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."
