    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Leviticus 19:1-2, 11-18

    1And the LORD said to Moses, 2"Say to all the congregation of the people of Israel, You shall be holy;for I the LORD your God am holy. 11"You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. 12And you shall not swear by my name falsely, and so profane the name of your God: I am the LORD. 13"You shall not oppress your neighbor or rob him. The wages of a hired servant shall not remain with you all night until the morning. 14You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am the LORD. 15"You shall do no injustice in judgment;you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor. 16You shall not go up and down as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand forth against the life of your neighbor: I am the LORD. 17"You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason with your neighbor, lest you bear sin because of him. 18You shall not take vengeance or bear any grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    7The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul;the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;8the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;9the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever;the ordinances of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. 14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 25:31-46

    31"When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. 34Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;35for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' 37Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? 38And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? 39And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' 40And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.' 41Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;42for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' 44Then they also will answer, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?' 45Then he will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.' 46And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

    Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy.

    “You shall not steal.
    You shall not lie or speak falsely to one another.
    You shall not swear falsely by my name,
    thus profaning the name of your God.
    I am the LORD.

    “You shall not defraud or rob your neighbor.
    You shall not withhold overnight the wages of your day laborer.
    You shall not curse the deaf,
    or put a stumbling block in front of the blind,
    but you shall fear your God.
    I am the LORD.

    “You shall not act dishonestly in rendering judgment.
    Show neither partiality to the weak nor deference to the mighty,
    but judge your fellow men justly.
    You shall not go about spreading slander among your kin;
    nor shall you stand by idly when your neighbor’s life is at stake.
    I am the LORD.

    “You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart.
    Though you may have to reprove him,
    do not incur sin because of him.
    Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen.
    You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    I am the LORD.”

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 25:31-46

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
    and all the angels with him,
    he will sit upon his glorious throne,
    and all the nations will be assembled before him.
    And he will separate them one from another,
    as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
    He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
    Then the king will say to those on his right,
    ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father.
    Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
    For I was hungry and you gave me food,
    I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
    a stranger and you welcomed me,
    naked and you clothed me,
    ill and you cared for me,
    in prison and you visited me.’
    Then the righteous will answer him and say,
    ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,
    or thirsty and give you drink?
    When did we see you a stranger and welcome you,
    or naked and clothe you?
    When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’
    And the king will say to them in reply,
    ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
    for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’
    Then he will say to those on his left,
    ‘Depart from me, you accursed,
    into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels.
    For I was hungry and you gave me no food,
    I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
    a stranger and you gave me no welcome,
    naked and you gave me no clothing,
    ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.’
    Then they will answer and say,
    ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty
    or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison,
    and not minister to your needs?’
    He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you,
    what you did not do for one of these least ones,
    you did not do for me.’
    And these will go off to eternal punishment,
    but the righteous to eternal life.”
