    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ephesians 6:10-13, 18

    10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 18Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 11

    1Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge. 2I say to the LORD, "Thou art my Lord;I have no good apart from thee." 5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;thou holdest my lot. 7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;in the night also my heart instructs me. 8I keep the LORD always before me;because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 11Thou dost show me the path of life;in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 19:16-26

    16And behold, one came up to him, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?" 17And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments." 18He said to him, "Which?" And Jesus said, "You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 20The young man said to him, "All these I have observed;what do I still lack?" 21Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven;and come, follow me." 22When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful;for he had great possessions. 23And Jesus said to his disciples, "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." 25When the disciples heard this they were greatly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?" 26But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 4:12-16

    The word of God is living and effective,
    sharper than any two-edged sword,
    penetrating even between soul and spirit,
    joints and marrow,
    and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.
    No creature is concealed from him,
    but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of him
    to whom we must render an account.

    Since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens,
    Jesus, the Son of God,
    let us hold fast to our confession.
    For we do not have a high priest
    who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,
    but one who has similarly been tested in every way,
    yet without sin.
    So let us confidently approach the throne of grace
    to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 19:8, 9, 10, 15

    R.(see John 6:63c) Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The law of the LORD is perfect,
    refreshing the soul;
    The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
    giving wisdom to the simple.
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The precepts of the LORD are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
    The command of the LORD is clear,
    enlightening the eye.
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The fear of the LORD is pure,
    enduring forever;
    The ordinances of the LORD are true,
    all of them just.
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    Let the words of my mouth and the thought of my heart
    find favor before you,
    O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 2:13-17

    Jesus went out along the sea.
    All the crowd came to him and he taught them.
    As he passed by, he saw Levi, son of Alphaeus,
    sitting at the customs post.
    Jesus said to him, "Follow me."
    And he got up and followed Jesus.
    While he was at table in his house,
    many tax collectors and sinners sat with Jesus and his disciples;
    for there were many who followed him.
    Some scribes who were Pharisees saw that Jesus was eating with sinners
    and tax collectors and said to his disciples,
    "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?"
    Jesus heard this and said to them,
    "Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.
    I did not come to call the righteous but sinners."
