    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Revelation 14:1-5

    1Then I looked, and lo, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. 2And I heard a voice from heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder;the voice I heard was like the sound of harpers playing on their harps, 3and they sing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the earth. 4It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are chaste;it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes;these have been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb, 5and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are spotless.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 24:1-6

    1The earth is the LORD's and the fulness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein;2for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers. 3Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. 5He will receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation. 6Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 21:1-4

    1He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury;2and he saw a poor widow put in two copper coins. 3And he said, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them;4for they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all the living that she had."

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dn 2:31-45

    Daniel said to Nebuchadnezzar:
    “In your vision, O king, you saw a statue,
    very large and exceedingly bright,
    terrifying in appearance as it stood before you.
    The head of the statue was pure gold,
    its chest and arms were silver,
    its belly and thighs bronze, the legs iron,
    its feet partly iron and partly tile.
    While you looked at the statue,
    a stone which was hewn from a mountain
    without a hand being put to it,
    struck its iron and tile feet, breaking them in pieces.
    The iron, tile, bronze, silver, and gold all crumbled at once,
    fine as the chaff on the threshing floor in summer,
    and the wind blew them away without leaving a trace.
    But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain
    and filled the whole earth.

    “This was the dream;
    the interpretation we shall also give in the king’s presence.
    You, O king, are the king of kings;
    to you the God of heaven
    has given dominion and strength, power and glory;
    men, wild beasts, and birds of the air, wherever they may dwell,
    he has handed over to you, making you ruler over them all;
    you are the head of gold.
    Another kingdom shall take your place, inferior to yours,
    then a third kingdom, of bronze,
    which shall rule over the whole earth.
    There shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron;
    it shall break in pieces and subdue all these others,
    just as iron breaks in pieces and crushes everything else.
    The feet and toes you saw, partly of potter’s tile and partly of iron,
    mean that it shall be a divided kingdom,
    but yet have some of the hardness of iron.
    As you saw the iron mixed with clay tile,
    and the toes partly iron and partly tile,
    the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.
    The iron mixed with clay tile
    means that they shall seal their alliances by intermarriage,
    but they shall not stay united, any more than iron mixes with clay.
    In the lifetime of those kings
    the God of heaven will set up a kingdom
    that shall never be destroyed or delivered up to another people;
    rather, it shall break in pieces all these kingdoms
    and put an end to them, and it shall stand forever.
    That is the meaning of the stone you saw hewn from the mountain
    without a hand being put to it,
    which broke in pieces the tile, iron, bronze, silver, and gold.
    The great God has revealed to the king what shall be in the future;
    this is exactly what you dreamed, and its meaning is sure.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Dn 3:57, 58, 59, 60, 61

    R. (59b) Give glory and eternal praise to him.
    “Bless the Lord, all you works of the Lord,
    praise and exalt him above all forever.”
    R. Give glory and eternal praise to him.
    “Angels of the Lord, bless the Lord,
    praise and exalt him above all forever.”
    R. Give glory and eternal praise to him.
    “You heavens, bless the Lord,
    praise and exalt him above all forever.”
    R. Give glory and eternal praise to him.
    “All you waters above the heavens, bless the Lord,
    praise and exalt him above all forever.”
    R. Give glory and eternal praise to him.
    “All you hosts of the Lord, bless the Lord;
    praise and exalt him above all forever.”
    R. Give glory and eternal praise to him.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 21:5-11

    While some people were speaking about
    how the temple was adorned with costly stones and votive offerings,
    Jesus said, "All that you see here?
    the days will come when there will not be left
    a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down."

    Then they asked him,
    "Teacher, when will this happen?
    And what sign will there be when all these things are about to happen?"
    He answered,
    "See that you not be deceived,
    for many will come in my name, saying,
    'I am he,' and 'The time has come.'
    Do not follow them!
    When you hear of wars and insurrections,
    do not be terrified;for such things must happen first,
    but it will not immediately be the end."
    Then he said to them,
    "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
    There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues
    from place to place;
    and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky."
