  • Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary 2014:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rv 11:19a;12:1-6a, 10ab

    God's temple in heaven was opened,
    and the ark of his covenant could be seen in the temple.

    A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun,
    with the moon under her feet,
    and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
    She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth.
    Then another sign appeared in the sky;
    it was a huge red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns,
    and on its heads were seven diadems.
    Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky
    and hurled them down to the earth.
    Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth,
    to devour her child when she gave birth.
    She gave birth to a son, a male child,
    destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod.
    Her child was caught up to God and his throne.
    The woman herself fled into the desert
    where she had a place prepared by God.

    Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
    "Now have salvation and power come,
    and the Kingdom of our God
    and the authority of his Anointed One."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 45:10, 11, 12, 16

    R. (10bc) The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
    The queen takes her place at your right hand in gold of Ophir.
    R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
    Hear, O daughter, and see;turn your ear,
    forget your people and your father's house.
    R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
    So shall the king desire your beauty;
    for he is your lord.
    R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
    They are borne in with gladness and joy;
    they enter the palace of the king.
    R. The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Cor 15:20-27

    Brothers and sisters:
    Christ has been raised from the dead,
    the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
    For since death came through man,
    the resurrection of the dead came also through man.
    For just as in Adam all die,
    so too in Christ shall all be brought to life,
    but each one in proper order:
    Christ the firstfruits;
    then, at his coming, those who belong to Christ;
    then comes the end,
    when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father,
    when he has destroyed every sovereignty
    and every authority and power.
    For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
    The last enemy to be destroyed is death,
    for "he subjected everything under his feet."

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 1:39-56

    Mary set out
    and traveled to the hill country in haste
    to a town of Judah,
    where she entered the house of Zechariah
    and greeted Elizabeth.
    When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting,
    the infant leaped in her womb,
    and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
    cried out in a loud voice and said,
    "Blessed are you among women,
    and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
    And how does this happen to me,
    that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
    For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
    the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
    Blessed are you who believed
    that what was spoken to you by the Lord
    would be fulfilled."

    And Mary said:

    "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
    my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
    for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
    From this day all generations will call me blessed:
    the Almighty has done great things for me
    and holy is his Name.
    He has mercy on those who fear him
    in every generation.
    He has shown the strength of his arm,
    and has scattered the proud in their conceit.
    He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
    and has lifted up the lowly.
    He has filled the hungry with good things,
    and the rich he has sent away empty.
    He has come to the help of his servant Israel
    for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
    the promise he made to our fathers,
    to Abraham and his children forever."

    Mary remained with her about three months
    and then returned to her home.

  • FRIDAY NINETEENTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2014:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ez 16:59-63

    Thus says the LORD:
    I will deal with you according to what you have done,
    you who despised your oath, breaking a covenant.
    Yet I will remember the covenant I made with you when you were a girl,
    and I will set up an everlasting covenant with you.
    Then you shall remember your conduct and be ashamed
    when I take your sisters, those older and younger than you,
    and give them to you as daughters,
    even though I am not bound by my covenant with you.
    For I will re-establish my covenant with you,
    that you may know that I am the LORD,
    that you may remember and be covered with confusion,
    and that you may be utterly silenced for shame
    when I pardon you for all you have done, says the Lord GOD.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Is 12:2-3, 4bcd, 5-6

    R. (1c) You have turned from your anger.
    God indeed is my savior;
    I am confident and unafraid.
    My strength and my courage is the LORD,
    and he has been my savior.
    With joy you will draw water
    at the fountain of salvation.
    R. You have turned from your anger.
    Give thanks to the LORD, acclaim his name;
    among the nations make known his deeds,
    proclaim how exalted is his name.
    R. You have turned from your anger.
    Sing praise to the LORD for his glorious achievement;
    let this be known throughout all the earth.
    Shout with exultation, O city of Zion,
    for great in your midst
    is the Holy One of Israel!
    R. You have turned from your anger.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 19:3-12

    Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and tested him, saying,
    "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?"
    He said in reply, "Have you not read that from the beginning
    the Creator made them male and female and said,
    For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
    and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?
    So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
    Therefore, what God has joined together, man must not separate."
    They said to him, "Then why did Moses command
    that the man give the woman a bill of divorce and dismiss her?"
    He said to them, "Because of the hardness of your hearts
    Moses allowed you to divorce your wives,
    but from the beginning it was not so.
    I say to you, whoever divorces his wife
    (unless the marriage is unlawful)
    and marries another commits adultery."
    His disciples said to him,
    "If that is the case of a man with his wife,
    it is better not to marry."
    He answered, "Not all can accept this word,
    but only those to whom that is granted.
    Some are incapable of marriage because they were born so;
    some, because they were made so by others;
    some, because they have renounced marriage
    for the sake of the Kingdom of heaven.
    Whoever can accept this ought to accept it."
