  • The Conversion of Saint Paul 2015:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 9:1-22

    Saul, still breathing murderous threats against the disciples of the Lord,
    went to the high priest and asked him
    for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, that,
    if he should find any men or women who belonged to the Way,
    he might bring them back to Jerusalem in chains.
    On his journey, as he was nearing Damascus,
    a light from the sky suddenly flashed around him.
    He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him,
    "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?"
    He said, "Who are you, sir?"
    The reply came, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.
    Now get up and go into the city and you will be told what you must do."
    The men who were traveling with him stood speechless,
    for they heard the voice but could see no one.
    Saul got up from the ground,
    but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing;
    so they led him by the hand and brought him to Damascus.
    For three days he was unable to see, and he neither ate nor drank.

    There was a disciple in Damascus named Ananias,
    and the Lord said to him in a vision, Ananias."
    He answered, "Here I am, Lord."
    The Lord said to him, "Get up and go to the street called Straight
    and ask at the house of Judas for a man from Tarsus named Saul.
    He is there praying,
    and in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias
    come in and lay his hands on him,
    that he may regain his sight."
    But Ananias replied,
    "Lord, I have heard from many sources about this man,
    what evil things he has done to your holy ones in Jerusalem.
    And here he has authority from the chief priests
    to imprison all who call upon your name."
    But the Lord said to him,
    "Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of mine
    to carry my name before Gentiles, kings, and children of Israel,
    and I will show him what he will have to suffer for my name."
    So Ananias went and entered the house;
    laying his hands on him, he said,
    "Saul, my brother, the Lord has sent me,
    Jesus who appeared to you on the way by which you came,
    that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
    Immediately things like scales fell from his eyes
    and he regained his sight.
    He got up and was baptized,
    and when he had eaten, he recovered his strength.

    He stayed some days with the disciples in Damascus,
    and he began at once to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues,
    that he is the Son of God.
    All who heard him were astounded and said,
    "Is not this the man who in Jerusalem
    ravaged those who call upon this name,
    and came here expressly to take them back in chains
    to the chief priests?"
    But Saul grew all the stronger
    and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus,
    proving that this is the Christ.

    Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them:
    "Go into the whole world
    and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.
    Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved;
    whoever does not believe will be condemned.
    These signs will accompany those who believe:
    in my name they will drive out demons,
    they will speak new languages.
    They will pick up serpents with their hands,
    and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them.
    They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

  • THIRD SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Jon 3:1-5, 10

    The word of the LORD came to Jonah, saying:
    "Set out for the great city of Nineveh,
    and announce to it the message that I will tell you."
    So Jonah made ready and went to Nineveh,
    according to the LORD'S bidding.
    Now Nineveh was an enormously large city;
    it took three days to go through it.
    Jonah began his journey through the city,
    and had gone but a single day's walk announcing,
    "Forty days more and Nineveh shall be destroyed, "
    when the people of Nineveh believed God;
    they proclaimed a fast
    and all of them, great and small, put on sackcloth.
    When God saw by their actions how they turned from their evil way,
    he repented of the evil that he had threatened to do to them;
    he did not carry it out.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 25:4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    R. (4a)
    Teach me your ways, O Lord.
    Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
    teach me your paths,
    Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my savior.
    R.Teach me your ways, O Lord.
    Remember that your compassion, O LORD,
    and your love are from of old.
    In your kindness remember me,
    because of your goodness, O LORD.
    R.Teach me your ways, O Lord.
    Good and upright is the LORD;
    thus he shows sinners the way.
    He guides the humble to justice
    and teaches the humble his way.
    R.Teach me your ways, O Lord.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Cor 7:29-31

    I tell you, brothers and sisters, the time is running out.
    From now on, let those having wives act as not having them,
    those weeping as not weeping,
    those rejoicing as not rejoicing,
    those buying as not owning,
    those using the world as not using it fully.
    For the world in its present form is passing away.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 1:14-20

    After John had been arrested,
    Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
    "This is the time of fulfillment.
    The kingdom of God is at hand.
    Repent, and believe in the gospel."
    As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,
    he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea;
    they were fishermen.
    Jesus said to them,
    "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
    Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
    He walked along a little farther
    and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
    They too were in a boat mending their nets.
    Then he called them.
    So they left their father Zebedee in the boat
    along with the hired men and followed him.
