    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    DN 6:12-28

    In a vision I, Daniel, saw during the night,
    the four winds of heaven stirred up the great sea,
    from which emerged four immense beasts,
    each different from the others.
    The first was like a lion, but with eagle’s wings.
    While I watched, the wings were plucked;
    it was raised from the ground to stand on two feet
    like a man, and given a human mind.
    The second was like a bear;it was raised up on one side,
    and among the teeth in its mouth were three tusks.
    It was given the order, “Up, devour much flesh.”
    After this I looked and saw another beast, like a leopard;
    on its back were four wings like those of a bird,
    and it had four heads.
    To this beast dominion was given.
    After this, in the visions of the night I saw the fourth beast,
    different from all the others,
    terrifying, horrible, and of extraordinary strength;
    it had great iron teeth with which it devoured and crushed,
    and what was left it trampled with its feet.
    I was considering the ten horns it had,
    when suddenly another, a little horn, sprang out of their midst,
    and three of the previous horns were torn away to make room for it.
    This horn had eyes like a man,
    and a mouth that spoke arrogantly.
    As I watched,

    Thrones were set up
    and the Ancient One took his throne.
    His clothing was snow bright,
    and the hair on his head as white as wool;
    His throne was flames of fire,
    with wheels of burning fire.
    A surging stream of fire
    flowed out from where he sat;
    Thousands upon thousands were ministering to him,
    and myriads upon myriads attended him.

    The court was convened, and the books were opened.
    I watched, then, from the first of the arrogant words
    which the horn spoke, until the beast was slain
    and its body thrown into the fire to be burnt up.
    The other beasts, which also lost their dominion,
    were granted a prolongation of life for a time and a season.
    As the visions during the night continued, I saw

    One like a son of man coming,
    on the clouds of heaven;
    When he reached the Ancient One
    and was presented before him,
    He received dominion, glory, and kingship;
    nations and peoples of every language serve him.
    His dominion is an everlasting dominion
    that shall not be taken away,
    his kingship shall not be destroyed.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 21:12-19

    Jesus said to the crowd:
    "They will seize and persecute you,
    they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons,
    and they will have you led before kings and governors
    because of my name.
    It will lead to your giving testimony.
    Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand,
    for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking
    that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute.
    You will even be handed over by parents,
    brothers, relatives, and friends,
    and they will put some of you to death.
    You will be hated by all because of my name,
    but not a hair on your head will be destroyed.
    By your perseverance you will secure your lives."
