    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 8:6-13

    6But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry which is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.7For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion for a second.8For he finds fault with them when he says: "The days will come, says the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israeland with the house of Judah;9not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the handto lead them out of the land of Egypt;for they did not continue in my covenant, and so I paid no heed to them, says the Lord.10This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord:I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.11And they shall not teach every one his fellowor every one his brother, saying, `Know the Lord, 'for all shall know me, from the least of them to the greatest.12For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more."13In speaking of a new covenant he treats the first as obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 85:8, 10-14

    7Show us thy steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 9Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. 10Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet;righteousness and peace will kiss each other. 11Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky. 12Yea, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. 13Righteousness will go before him, and make his footsteps a way.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 3:13-19

    13And he went up on the mountain, and called to him those whom he desired;and they came to him. 14And he appointed twelve, to be with him, and to be sent out to preach 15and have authority to cast out demons: 16Simon whom he surnamed Peter;17James the son of Zeb'edee and John the brother of James, whom he surnamed Bo-aner'ges, that is, sons of thunder;18Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. Then he went home;

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 8:6-13

    Brothers and sisters:
    Now our high priest has obtained so much more excellent a ministry
    as he is mediator of a better covenant,
    enacted on better promises.

    For if that first covenant had been faultless,
    no place would have been sought for a second one.
    But he finds fault with them and says:
    Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord,
    when I will conclude a new covenant with the house of
    Israel and the house of Judah.
    It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers
    the day I took them by the hand to lead
    them forth from the land of Egypt;
    for they did not stand by my covenant
    and I ignored them, says the Lord.
    But this is the covenant I will establish with the house of Israel
    after those days, says the Lord:
    I will put my laws in their minds
    and I will write them upon their hearts.
    I will be their God,
    and they shall be my people.
    And they shall not teach, each one his fellow citizen and kin, saying,
    “Know the Lord,”
    for all shall know me, from least to greatest.
    For I will forgive their evildoing
    and remember their sins no more.


    When he speaks of a “new” covenant,
    he declares the first one obsolete.
    And what has become obsolete
    and has grown old is close to disappearing.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 85:8 and 10, 11-12, 13-14

    R. (11a) Kindness and truth shall meet.
    Show us, O LORD, your mercy,
    and grant us your salvation.
    Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
    glory dwelling in our land.
    R. Kindness and truth shall meet.
    Kindness and truth shall meet;
    justice and peace shall kiss.
    Truth shall spring out of the earth,
    and justice shall look down from heaven.
    R. Kindness and truth shall meet.
    The LORD himself will give his benefits;
    our land shall yield its increase.
    Justice shall walk before him,
    and salvation, along the way of his steps.
    R. Kindness and truth shall meet.

    Alleluia

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ,
    and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom he wanted
    and they came to him.
    He appointed Twelve, whom he also named Apostles,
    that they might be with him
    and he might send them forth to preach
    and to have authority to drive out demons:
    He appointed the Twelve:
    Simon, whom he named Peter;
    James, son of Zebedee,
    and John the brother of James, whom he named Boanerges,
    that is, sons of thunder;

    Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean,
    and Judas Iscariot who betrayed him.
