  • Saint Barnabas, the Apostle 2015:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 11:21b-26;13:1-3

    In those days a great number who believed turned to the Lord.
    The news about them reached the ears of the Church in Jerusalem,
    and they sent Barnabas to go to Antioch.
    When he arrived and saw the grace of God,
    he rejoiced and encouraged them all
    to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart,
    for he was a good man, filled with the Holy Spirit and faith.
    And a large number of people was added to the Lord.
    Then he went to Tarsus to look for Saul,
    and when he had found him he brought him to Antioch.
    For a whole year they met with the Church
    and taught a large number of people,
    and it was in Antioch that the disciples
    were first called Christians.

    Now there were in the Church at Antioch prophets and teachers:
    Barnabas, Symeon who was called Niger,
    Lucius of Cyrene,
    Manaen who was a close friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
    While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
    "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul
    for the work to which I have called them."
    Then, completing their fasting and prayer,
    they laid hands on them and sent them off.

    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    The LORD has made his salvation known:
    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song;sing praise.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    Sing praise to the LORD with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song.
    With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    sing joyfully before the King, the LORD.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 5:1-12

    When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain,
    and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
    He began to teach them, saying:

    "Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are they who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
    Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the land.
    Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be satisfied.
    Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
    Blessed are the clean of heart,
    for they will see God.
    Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
    Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
    for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you
    and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.
    Rejoice and be glad,
    for your reward will be great in heaven.
    Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

  • THURSDAY TENTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Cor 3:15—4:1, 3-6

    Brothers and sisters:
    To this day, whenever Moses is read,
    a veil lies over the hearts of the children of Israel,
    but whenever a person turns to the Lord the veil is removed.
    Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is,
    there is freedom.
    All of us, gazing with unveiled face on the glory of the Lord,
    are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory,
    as from the Lord who is the Spirit.

    Therefore, since we have this ministry through the mercy shown us,
    we are not discouraged.
    And even though our Gospel is veiled,
    it is veiled for those who are perishing,
    in whose case the god of this age
    has blinded the minds of the unbelievers,
    so that they may not see the light of the Gospel
    of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
    For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord,
    and ourselves as your slaves for the sake of Jesus.
    For God who said, Let light shine out of darkness,
    has shone in our hearts to bring to light
    the knowledge of the glory of God
    on the face of Jesus Christ.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 85:9ab and 10, 11-12, 13-14

    R. (see 10b) The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.
    I will hear what God proclaims;
    the LORD–for he proclaims peace to his people.
    Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
    glory dwelling in our land.
    R. The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.
    Kindness and truth shall meet;
    justice and peace shall kiss.
    Truth shall spring out of the earth,
    and justice shall look down from heaven.
    R. The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.
    The LORD himself will give his benefits;
    our land shall yield its increase.
    Justice shall walk before him,
    and salvation, along the way of his steps.
    R. The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 5:20-26

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that
    of the scribes and Pharisees,
    you will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

    "You have heard that it was said to your ancestors,
    You shall not kill;and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.
    But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother
    will be liable to judgment,
    and whoever says to his brother,
    'Raqa,' will be answerable to the Sanhedrin,
    and whoever says, "You fool," will be liable to fiery Gehenna.
    Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar,
    and there recall that your brother
    has anything against you,
    leave your gift there at the altar,
    go first and be reconciled with your brother,
    and then come and offer your gift.
    Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court with him.
    Otherwise your opponent will hand you over to the judge,
    and the judge will hand you over to the guard,
    and you will be thrown into prison.
    Amen, I say to you,
    you will not be released until you have paid the last penny."
