    16"And in that day, says the LORD, you will call me, `My husband,' and no longer will you call me, `My Ba'al.' 17For I will remove the names of the Ba'als from her mouth, and they shall be mentioned by name no more. 21"And in that day, says the LORD, I will answer the heavens and they shall answer the earth;22and the earth shall answer the grain, the wine, and the oil, and they shall answer Jezreel;

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 45:11-12, 14-17

    10Hear, O daughter, consider, and incline your ear;forget your people and your father's house;11and the king will desire your beauty. Since he is your lord, bow to him;13with all kinds of wealth. The princess is decked in her chamber with gold-woven robes;14in many-colored robes she is led to the king, with her virgin companions, her escort, in her train. 15With joy and gladness they are led along as they enter the palace of the king. 16Instead of your fathers shall be your sons;you will make them princes in all the earth.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 25:1-13

    1"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them;4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 7Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you;go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.' 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast;and the door was shut. 11Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.' 12But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.' 13Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rv 11:4-12

    I, John, heard a voice from heaven speak to me:
    Here are my two witnesses:
    These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands
    that stand before the Lord of the earth.
    If anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouths
    and devours their enemies.
    In this way, anyone wanting to harm them is sure to be slain.
    They have the power to close up the sky
    so that no rain can fall during the time of their prophesying.
    They also have power to turn water into blood
    and to afflict the earth with any plague as often as they wish.

    When they have finished their testimony,
    the beast that comes up from the abyss
    will wage war against them and conquer them and kill them.
    Their corpses will lie in the main street of the great city,
    which has the symbolic names 'Sodom' and 'Egypt,'
    where indeed their Lord was crucified.
    Those from every people, tribe, tongue, and nation
    will gaze on their corpses for three and a half days,
    and they will not allow their corpses to be buried.
    The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them
    and be glad and exchange gifts
    because these two prophets tormented the inhabitants of the earth.
    But after the three and a half days,
    a breath of life from God entered them.
    When they stood on their feet, great fear fell on those who saw them.
    Then they heard a loud voice from heaven say to them, "Come up here."
    So they went up to heaven in a cloud as their enemies looked on.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 144:1, 2, 9-10

    R. (1b) Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
    Blessed be the LORD, my rock,
    who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war.
    R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
    My mercy and my fortress,
    my stronghold, my deliverer,
    My shield, in whom I trust,
    who subdues my people under me.
    R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
    O God, I will sing a new song to you;
    with a ten stringed lyre I will chant your praise,
    You who give victory to kings,
    and deliver David, your servant from the evil sword.
    R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 20:27-40

    Some Sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection,
    came forward and put this question to Jesus, saying,
    "Teacher, Moses wrote for us,
    If someone's brother dies leaving a wife but no child,
    his brother must take the wife
    and raise up descendants for his brother.
    Now there were seven brothers;
    the first married a woman but died childless.
    Then the second and the third married her,
    and likewise all the seven died childless.
    Finally the woman also died.
    Now at the resurrection whose wife will that woman be?
    For all seven had been married to her."
    Jesus said to them,
    "The children of this age marry and remarry;
    but those who are deemed worthy to attain to the coming age
    and to the resurrection of the dead
    neither marry nor are given in marriage.
    They can no longer die,
    for they are like angels;
    and they are the children of God
    because they are the ones who will rise.
    That the dead will rise
    even Moses made known in the passage about the bush,
    when he called 'Lord'
    the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob;
    and he is not God of the dead, but of the living,
    for to him all are alive."
    Some of the scribes said in reply,
    "Teacher, you have answered well."
    And they no longer dared to ask him anything.
