    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Corinthians 10:17--11:2

    1017"Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord." 18For it is not the man who commends himself that is accepted, but the man whom the Lord commends.111I wish you would bear with me in a little foolishness. Do bear with me! 2I feel a divine jealousy for you, for I betrothed you to Christ to present you as a pure bride to her one husband.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 31:3-4, 6, 8, 16-17

    2Incline thy ear to me, rescue me speedily! Be thou a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me! 3Yea, thou art my rock and my fortress;for thy name's sake lead me and guide me, 5Into thy hand I commit my spirit;thou hast redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God. 7I will rejoice and be glad for thy steadfast love, because thou hast seen my affliction, thou hast taken heed of my adversities, 15My times are in thy hand;deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors! 16Let thy face shine on thy servant;save me in thy steadfast love!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 25:1-13

    1"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them;4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 7Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you;go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.' 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast;and the door was shut. 11Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.' 12But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.' 13Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Sir 48:1-4, 9-11

    In those days,
    like a fire there appeared the prophet Elijah
    whose words were as a flaming furnace.
    Their staff of bread he shattered,
    in his zeal he reduced them to straits;
    By the Lord’s word he shut up the heavens
    and three times brought down fire.
    How awesome are you, Elijah, in your wondrous deeds!
    Whose glory is equal to yours?
    You were taken aloft in a whirlwind of fire,
    in a chariot with fiery horses.
    You were destined, it is written, in time to come
    to put an end to wrath before the day of the LORD,
    To turn back the hearts of fathers toward their sons,
    and to re-establish the tribes of Jacob.
    Blessed is he who shall have seen you
    and who falls asleep in your friendship.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 80:2ac and 3b, 15-16, 18-19

    R. (4) Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    O shepherd of Israel, hearken,
    From your throne upon the cherubim, shine forth.
    Rouse your power.
    R. Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    Once again, O LORD of hosts,
    look down from heaven, and see;
    Take care of this vine,
    and protect what your right hand has planted
    the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
    R. Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    May your help be with the man of your right hand,
    with the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
    Then we will no more withdraw from you;
    give us new life, and we will call upon your name.
    R. Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 17:9a, 10-13

    As they were coming down from the mountain,
    the disciples asked Jesus,
    “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”
    He said in reply, “Elijah will indeed come and restore all things;
    but I tell you that Elijah has already come,
    and they did not recognize him but did to him whatever they pleased.
    So also will the Son of Man suffer at their hands.”
    Then the disciples understood
    that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.
