    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 chr 24:17-15

    After the death of Jehoiada,
    the princes of Judah came and paid homage to King Joash,
    and the king then listened to them.
    They forsook the temple of the LORD, the God of their fathers,
    and began to serve the sacred poles and the idols;
    and because of this crime of theirs,
    wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem.
    Although prophets were sent to them to convert them to the LORD,
    the people would not listen to their warnings.
    Then the Spirit of God possessed Zechariah,
    son of Jehoiada the priest.
    He took his stand above the people and said to them:
    “God says, ‘Why are you transgressing the LORD’s commands,
    so that you cannot prosper?
    Because you have abandoned the LORD, he has abandoned you.’”
    But they conspired against him,
    and at the king’s order they stoned him to death
    in the court of the LORD’s temple.
    Thus King Joash was unmindful of the devotion shown him
    by Jehoiada, Zechariah’s father, and slew his son.
    And as Zechariah was dying, he said, “May the LORD see and avenge.”

    At the turn of the year a force of Arameans came up against Joash.
    They invaded Judah and Jerusalem,
    did away with all the princes of the people,
    and sent all their spoil to the king of Damascus.
    Though the Aramean force came with few men,
    the LORD surrendered a very large force into their power,
    because Judah had abandoned the LORD, the God of their fathers.
    So punishment was meted out to Joash.
    After the Arameans had departed from him,
    leaving him in grievous suffering,
    his servants conspired against him
    because of the murder of the son of Jehoiada the priest.
    He was buried in the City of David,
    but not in the tombs of the kings.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 89:4-5, 29-30, 31-32, 33-34

    R. (29a) For ever I will maintain my love for my servant.
    “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
    I have sworn to David my servant:
    Forever will I confirm your posterity
    and establish your throne for all generations.”
    R. For ever I will maintain my love for my servant.
    “Forever I will maintain my kindness toward him,
    and my covenant with him stands firm.
    I will make his posterity endure forever
    and his throne as the days of heaven.”
    R. For ever I will maintain my love for my servant.
    “If his sons forsake my law
    and walk not according to my ordinances,
    If they violate my statutes
    and keep not my commands.”
    R. For ever I will maintain my love for my servant.
    “I will punish their crime with a rod
    and their guilt with stripes.
    Yet my mercy I will not take from him,
    nor will I belie my faithfulness.”
    R. For ever I will maintain my love for my servant.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 6:24-34

    24"No one can serve two masters;for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. 25"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? 28And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow;they neither toil nor spin;29yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? 31Therefore do not be anxious, saying, `What shall we eat?' or `What shall we drink?' or `What shall we wear?' 32For the Gentiles seek all these things;and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. 34"Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day.
