    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Corinthians 1:26-31

    26For consider your call, brethren;not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth;27but God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong, 28God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. 30He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption;31therefore, as it is written, "Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord."

    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 13:44-46

    44"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up;then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

  • WEDNESDAY SECOND WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 7:1-3, 15-17

    Melchizedek, king of Salem and priest of God Most High,
    met Abraham as he returned from his defeat of the kings
    and blessed him.
    And Abraham apportioned to him a tenth of everything.
    His name first means righteous king,
    and he was also “king of Salem,” that is, king of peace.
    Without father, mother, or ancestry,
    without beginning of days or end of life,
    thus made to resemble the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.

    It is even more obvious if another priest is raised up
    after the likeness of Melchizedek, who has become so,
    not by a law expressed in a commandment concerning physical descent
    but by the power of a life that cannot be destroyed.
    For it is testified:

    You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 110:1, 2, 3, 4

    R. (4b) You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand
    till I make your enemies your footstool.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The scepter of your power the LORD will stretch forth from Zion:
    “Rule in the midst of your enemies.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    “Yours is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor;
    before the daystar, like the dew, I have begotten you.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD has sworn, and he will not repent:
    “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 3:1-6

    Jesus entered the synagogue.
    There was a man there who had a withered hand.
    They watched Jesus closely
    to see if he would cure him on the sabbath
    so that they might accuse him.
    He said to the man with the withered hand,
    "Come up here before us."
    Then he said to the Pharisees,
    "Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil,
    to save life rather than to destroy it?"
    But they remained silent.
    Looking around at them with anger
    and grieved at their hardness of heart,
    Jesus said to the man, "Stretch out your hand."
    He stretched it out and his hand was restored.
    The Pharisees went out and immediately took counsel
    with the Herodians against him to put him to death.
