    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.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dn 7:13-14

    As the visions during the night continued, I saw
    one like a Son of man coming,
    on the clouds of heaven;
    when he reached the Ancient One
    and was presented before him,
    the one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingship;
    all peoples, nations, and languages serve him.
    His dominion is an everlasting dominion
    that shall not be taken away,
    his kingship shall not be destroyed.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 93:1, 1-2, 5

    R. (1a)
    The LORD is king;he is robed in majesty.
    The LORD is king, in splendor robed;
    robed is the LORD and girt about with strength.
    R.The LORD is king;he is robed in majesty.
    And he has made the world firm,
    not to be moved.
    Your throne stands firm from of old;
    from everlasting you are, O LORD.
    R.The LORD is king;he is robed in majesty.
    Your decrees are worthy of trust indeed;
    holiness befits your house,
    O LORD, for length of days.
    R.The LORD is king;he is robed in majesty.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rv 1:5-8

    Jesus Christ is the faithful witness,
    the firstborn of the dead and ruler of the kings of the earth.
    To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,
    who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father,
    to him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen.
    Behold, he is coming amid the clouds,
    and every eye will see him,
    even those who pierced him.
    All the peoples of the earth will lament him.
    Yes. Amen.
    "I am the Alpha and the Omega, " says the Lord God,
    "the one who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty."

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 18:33b-37

    Pilate said to Jesus,
    "Are you the King of the Jews?"
    Jesus answered, "Do you say this on your own
    or have others told you about me?"
    Pilate answered, "I am not a Jew, am I?
    Your own nation and the chief priests handed you over to me.
    What have you done?"
    Jesus answered, "My kingdom does not belong to this world.
    If my kingdom did belong to this world,
    my attendants would be fighting
    to keep me from being handed over to the Jews.
    But as it is, my kingdom is not here."
    So Pilate said to him, "Then you are a king?"
    Jesus answered, "You say I am a king.
    For this I was born and for this I came into the world,
    to testify to the truth.
    Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice."
