    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-13

    1I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, 3eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call, 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all. 7But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ's gift. 11And his gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, 12to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ;

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 23:1-6

    1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want;2he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters;3he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil;for thou art with me;thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies;thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 23:8-12

    8But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. 9And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ. 11He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;12whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

    Christmas Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 2, 22-28

    If you consider that God is righteous,
    you also know that everyone who acts in righteousness
    is begotten by him.

    See what love the Father has bestowed on us
    that we may be called the children of God.
    Yet so we are.
    The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
    Beloved, we are God’s children now;
    what we shall be has not yet been revealed.
    We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him,
    for we shall see him as he is.
    Everyone who has this hope based on him makes himself pure,
    as he is pure.

    Everyone who commits sin commits lawlessness,
    for sin is lawlessness.
    You know that he was revealed to take away sins,
    and in him there is no sin.
    No one who remains in him sins;
    no one who sins has seen him or known him.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalm 97, 1-2ab. 2cd-3ab. 3cd-4 (R/.: 3cd)

    R. (3cd) All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song;sing praise.
    R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.
    Sing praise to the LORD with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song.
    With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    sing joyfully before the King, the LORD.
    R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.

    Alleluia Jn 1:14a, 12a

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.
    To those who accepted him
    he gave power to become the children of God.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 1, 19-28

    John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
    “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
    He is the one of whom I said,
    ‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me
    because he existed before me.’
    I did not know him,
    but the reason why I came baptizing with water
    was that he might be made known to Israel.”
    John testified further, saying,
    “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from the sky
    and remain upon him.
    I did not know him,
    but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me,
    ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain,
    he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
    Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”
