    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.

    Brothers and sisters:
    Rejoice in the Lord always.
    I shall say it again: rejoice!
    Your kindness should be known to all.
    The Lord is near.
    Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
    by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
    make your requests known to God.
    Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
    will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 3:10-18

    The crowds asked John the Baptist,
    "What should we do?"
    He said to them in reply,
    "Whoever has two cloaks
    should share with the person who has none.
    And whoever has food should do likewise."
    Even tax collectors came to be baptized and they said to him,
    "Teacher, what should we do?"
    He answered them,
    "Stop collecting more than what is prescribed."
    Soldiers also asked him,
    "And what is it that we should do?"
    He told them,
    "Do not practice extortion,
    do not falsely accuse anyone,
    and be satisfied with your wages."
    Now the people were filled with expectation,
    and all were asking in their hearts
    whether John might be the Christ.
    John answered them all, saying,
    "I am baptizing you with water,
    but one mightier than I is coming.
    I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.
    He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
    His winnowing fan is in his hand to clear his threshing floor
    and to gather the wheat into his barn,
    but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."
    Exhorting them in many other ways,
    he preached good news to the people.
