    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ephesians 1:11-14

    11In him, according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will, 12we who first hoped in Christ have been destined and appointed to live for the praise of his glory. 13In him you also, who have heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and have believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14which is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 33:1-2, 4-5, 12-13

    1Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. 2Praise the LORD with the lyre, make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! 4For the word of the LORD is upright;and all his work is done in faithfulness. 5He loves righteousness and justice;the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD. 12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! 13The LORD looks down from heaven, he sees all the sons of men;

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 12:1-7

    1In the meantime, when so many thousands of the multitude had gathered together that they trod upon one another, he began to say to his disciples first, "Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 3Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. 4"I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell;yes, I tell you, fear him! 6Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not;you are of more value than many sparrows.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rom 4:13, 16-18

    Brothers and sisters:
    It was not through the law
    that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants
    that he would inherit the world,
    but through the righteousness that comes from faith.
    For this reason, it depends on faith,
    so that it may be a gift,
    and the promise may be guaranteed to all his descendants,
    not to those who only adhere to the law
    but to those who follow the faith of Abraham,
    who is the father of all of us, as it is written,
    I have made you father of many nations.
    He is our father in the sight of God,
    in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead
    and calls into being what does not exist.
    He believed, hoping against hope,
    that he would become the father of many nations,
    according to what was said, Thus shall your descendants be.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 105:6-7, 8-9, 42-43

    R. (8a) The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
    You descendants of Abraham, his servants,
    sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
    He, the LORD, is our God;
    throughout the earth his judgments prevail.
    R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
    He remembers forever his covenant
    which he made binding for a thousand generations –
    Which he entered into with Abraham
    and by his oath to Isaac.
    R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
    For he remembered his holy word
    to his servant Abraham.
    And he led forth his people with joy;
    with shouts of joy, his chosen ones.
    R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.

    Alleluia Jn 15:26b, 27a

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    The Spirit of truth will testify to me, says the Lord,
    and you also will testify.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 12:8-12

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "I tell you,
    everyone who acknowledges me before others
    the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God.
    But whoever denies me before others
    will be denied before the angels of God.

    "Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven,
    but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
    will not be forgiven.
    When they take you before synagogues and before rulers and authorities,
    do not worry about how or what your defense will be
    or about what you are to say.
    For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you should say."
