    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.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Gn 2:4b-9, 15-17

    At the time when the LORD God made the earth and the heavens—
    while as yet there was no field shrub on earth
    and no grass of the field had sprouted,
    for the LORD God had sent no rain upon the earth
    and there was no man to till the soil,
    but a stream was welling up out of the earth
    and was watering all the surface of the ground—
    the LORD God formed man out of the clay of the ground
    and blew into his nostrils the breath of life,
    and so man became a living being.

    Then the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east,
    and he placed there the man whom he had formed.
    Out of the ground the LORD God made various trees grow
    that were delightful to look at and good for food,
    with the tree of life in the middle of the garden
    and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

    The LORD God then took the man
    and settled him in the garden of Eden,
    to cultivate and care for it.
    The LORD God gave man this order:
    “You are free to eat from any of the trees of the garden
    except the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
    From that tree you shall not eat;
    the moment you eat from it you are surely doomed to die.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 104:1-2a, 27-28, 29bc-30

    R. (1a) O bless the Lord, my soul!
    Bless the LORD, O my soul!
    O LORD, my God, you are great indeed!
    You are clothed with majesty and glory,
    robed in light as with a cloak.
    R. O bless the Lord, my soul!
    All creatures look to you
    to give them food in due time.
    When you give it to them, they gather it;
    when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.
    R. O bless the Lord, my soul!
    If you take away their breath, they perish
    and return to their dust.
    When you send forth your spirit, they are created,
    and you renew the face of the earth.
    R. O bless the Lord, my soul!

    Alleluia See Jn 17:17b, 17a

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Your word, O Lord, is truth:
    consecrate us in the truth.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 7:14-23

    Jesus summoned the crowd again and said to them,
    "Hear me, all of you, and understand.
    Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person;
    but the things that come out from within are what defile."

    When he got home away from the crowd
    his disciples questioned him about the parable.
    He said to them,
    "Are even you likewise without understanding?
    Do you not realize that everything
    that goes into a person from outside cannot defile,
    since it enters not the heart but the stomach
    and passes out into the latrine?"
    (Thus he declared all foods clean.)
    "But what comes out of the man, that is what defiles him.
    From within the man, from his heart,
    come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder,
    adultery, greed, malice, deceit,
    licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly.
    All these evils come from within and they defile."
