    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ephesians 3:14-21

    14For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, 17and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God. 20Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 33:1-2, 4-5, 11-12, 18-19

    1Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. 2Praise the LORD with the lyre, make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! 4For the word of the LORD is upright;and all his work is done in faithfulness. 5He loves righteousness and justice;the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD. 11The counsel of the LORD stands for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! 18Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, 19that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 12:49-53

    49"I came to cast fire upon the earth;and would that it were already kindled! 50I have a baptism to be baptized with;and how I am constrained until it is accomplished! 51Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division;52for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three;53they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

  • FRIDAY TWENTY-NINTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rom 7:18-25a

    Brothers and sisters:
    I know that good does not dwell in me, that is, in my flesh.
    The willing is ready at hand, but doing the good is not.
    For I do not do the good I want,
    but I do the evil I do not want.
    Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it,
    but sin that dwells in me.
    So, then, I discover the principle
    that when I want to do right, evil is at hand.
    For I take delight in the law of God, in my inner self,
    but I see in my members another principle
    at war with the law of my mind,
    taking me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
    Miserable one that I am!
    Who will deliver me from this mortal body?
    Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 119:66, 68, 76, 77, 93, 94

    R. (68b) Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Teach me wisdom and knowledge,
    for in your commands I trust.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    You are good and bountiful;
    teach me your statutes.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Let your kindness comfort me
    according to your promise to your servants.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Let your compassion come to me that I may live,
    for your law is my delight.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Never will I forget your precepts,
    for through them you give me life.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    I am yours;save me,
    for I have sought your precepts.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 12:54-59

    Jesus said to the crowds,
    "When you see a cloud rising in the west
    you say immediately that it is going to rain--and so it does;
    and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south
    you say that it is going to be hot--and so it is.
    You hypocrites!
    You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky;
    why do you not know how to interpret the present time?

    "Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?
    If you are to go with your opponent before a magistrate,
    make an effort to settle the matter on the way;
    otherwise your opponent will turn you over to the judge,
    and the judge hand you over to the constable,
    and the constable throw you into prison.
    I say to you, you will not be released
    until you have paid the last penny."
