    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Cor 4:7-15

    Brothers and sisters:
    We hold this treasure in earthen vessels,
    that the surpassing power may be of God and not from us.
    We are afflicted in every way, but not constrained;
    perplexed, but not driven to despair;
    persecuted, but not abandoned;
    struck down, but not destroyed;
    always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus,
    so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body.
    For we who live are constantly being given up to death
    for the sake of Jesus,
    so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

    So death is at work in us, but life in you.
    Since, then, we have the same spirit of faith,
    according to what is written, I believed, therefore I spoke,
    we too believe and therefore speak,
    knowing that the one who raised the Lord Jesus
    will raise us also with Jesus
    and place us with you in his presence.
    Everything indeed is for you,
    so that the grace bestowed in abundance on more and more people
    may cause the thanksgiving to overflow for the glory of God.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 126:1bc-2ab, 2cd-3, 4-5, 6

    R. (5) Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion,
    we were like men dreaming.
    Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
    and our tongue with rejoicing.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    Then they said among the nations,
    "The LORD has done great things for them."
    The LORD has done great things for us;
    we are glad indeed.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
    like the torrents in the southern desert.
    Those that sow in tears
    shall reap rejoicing.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    Although they go forth weeping,
    carrying the seed to be sown,
    They shall come back rejoicing,
    carrying their sheaves.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 20:20-28

    The mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons
    and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something.
    He said to her,
    "What do you wish?"
    She answered him,
    "Command that these two sons of mine sit,
    one at your right and the other at your left, in your Kingdom."
    Jesus said in reply,
    "You do not know what you are asking.
    Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?"
    They said to him, "We can."
    He replied,
    "My chalice you will indeed drink,
    but to sit at my right and at my left, this is not mine to give
    but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father."
    When the ten heard this,
    they became indignant at the two brothers.
    But Jesus summoned them and said,
    "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them,
    and the great ones make their authority over them felt.
    But it shall not be so among you.
    Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant;
    whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.
    Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served
    but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."

  • FRIDAY SIXTEENTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2014:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Jer 3:14-17

    Return, rebellious children, says the LORD,
    for I am your Master;
    I will take you, one from a city, two from a clan,
    and bring you to Zion.
    I will appoint over you shepherds after my own heart,
    who will shepherd you wisely and prudently.
    When you multiply and become fruitful in the land,
    says the LORD,
    They will in those days no longer say,
    "The ark of the covenant of the LORD!"
    They will no longer think of it, or remember it,
    or miss it, or make another.

    At that time they will call Jerusalem the LORD's throne;
    there all nations will be gathered together
    to honor the name of the LORD at Jerusalem,
    and they will walk no longer in their hardhearted wickedness.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Jer 31:10, 11-12abcd, 13

    R. (see 10d) The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.
    Hear the word of the LORD, O nations,
    proclaim it on distant isles, and say:
    He who scattered Israel, now gathers them together,
    he guards them as a shepherd his flock.
    R. The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.
    The LORD shall ransom Jacob,
    he shall redeem him from the hand of his conqueror.
    Shouting, they shall mount the heights of Zion,
    they shall come streaming to the LORD's blessings:
    The grain, the wine, and the oil,
    the sheep and the oxen.
    R. The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.
    Then the virgins shall make merry and dance,
    and young men and old as well.
    I will turn their mourning into joy,
    I will console and gladden them after their sorrows.
    R. The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 13:18-23

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Hear the parable of the sower.
    The seed sown on the path is the one who hears the word of the Kingdom
    without understanding it,
    and the Evil One comes and steals away
    what was sown in his heart.
    The seed sown on rocky ground
    is the one who hears the word and receives it at once with joy.
    But he has no root and lasts only for a time.
    When some tribulation or persecution comes because of the word,
    he immediately falls away.
    The seed sown among thorns is the one who hears the word,
    but then worldly anxiety and the lure of riches choke the word
    and it bears no fruit.
    But the seed sown on rich soil
    is the one who hears the word and understands it,
    who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold."
