    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rv 21:9b-14

    The angel spoke to me, saying,
    "Come here.
    I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."
    He took me in spirit to a great, high mountain
    and showed me the holy city Jerusalem
    coming down out of heaven from God.
    It gleamed with the splendor of God.
    Its radiance was like that of a precious stone,
    like jasper, clear as crystal.
    It had a massive, high wall,
    with twelve gates where twelve angels were stationed
    and on which names were inscribed,
    the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
    There were three gates facing east,
    three north, three south, and three west.
    The wall of the city had twelve courses of stones as its foundation,
    on which were inscribed the twelve names
    of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 145:10-11, 12-13, 17-18

    R. (12) Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Making known to men your might
    and the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Your Kingdom is a Kingdom for all ages,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    The LORD is just in all his ways
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
    to all who call upon him in truth.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 1:45-51

    Philip found Nathanael and told him,
    "We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law,
    and also the prophets, Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth."
    But Nathanael said to him,
    "Can anything good come from Nazareth?"
    Philip said to him, "Come and see."
    Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,
    "Here is a true child of Israel.
    There is no duplicity in him."
    Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?"
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
    Nathanael answered him,
    "Rabbi, you are the Son of God;you are the King of Israel."
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Do you believe
    because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
    You will see greater things than this."
    And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    you will see heaven opened and the angels of God
    ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Thes 1:1-5, 8b-10

    Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy to the Church of the Thessalonians
    in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
    grace to you and peace.

    We give thanks to God always for all of you,
    remembering you in our prayers,
    unceasingly calling to mind your work of faith and labor of love
    and endurance in hope of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    before our God and Father,
    knowing, brothers and sisters loved by God, how you were chosen.
    For our Gospel did not come to you in word alone,
    but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with much conviction.
    You know what sort of people we were among you for your sake.
    In every place your faith in God has gone forth,
    so that we have no need to say anything.
    For they themselves openly declare about us
    what sort of reception we had among you,
    and how you turned to God from idols
    to serve the living and true God and to await his Son from heaven,
    whom he raised from the dead, Jesus,
    who delivers us from the coming wrath.

    let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
    let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
    For the LORD loves his people,
    and he adorns the lowly with victory.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Let the faithful exult in glory;
    let them sing for joy upon their couches;
    Let the high praises of God be in their throats.
    This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia!
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    or:

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 23:13-22

    Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples:
    "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
    You lock the Kingdom of heaven before men.
    You do not enter yourselves,
    nor do you allow entrance to those trying to enter.

    "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
    You traverse sea and land to make one convert,
    and when that happens you make him a child of Gehenna
    twice as much as yourselves.

    "Woe to you, blind guides, who say,
    'If one swears by the temple, it means nothing,
    but if one swears by the gold of the temple, one is obligated.'
    Blind fools, which is greater, the gold,
    or the temple that made the gold sacred?
    And you say, 'If one swears by the altar, it means nothing,
    but if one swears by the gift on the altar, one is obligated.'
    You blind ones, which is greater, the gift,
    or the altar that makes the gift sacred?
    One who swears by the altar swears by it and all that is upon it;
    one who swears by the temple swears by it
    and by him who dwells in it;
    one who swears by heaven swears by the throne of God
    and by him who is seated on it."
