    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Jn 1:1-4

    Beloved:
    What was from the beginning,
    what we have heard,
    what we have seen with our eyes,
    what we looked upon
    and touched with our hands
    concerns the Word of life —
    for the life was made visible;
    we have seen it and testify to it
    and proclaim to you the eternal life
    that was with the Father and was made visible to us—
    what we have seen and heard
    we proclaim now to you,
    so that you too may have fellowship with us;
    for our fellowship is with the Father
    and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
    We are writing this so that our joy may be complete.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 97:1-2, 5-6, 11-12

    R. (12) Rejoice in the Lord, you just!
    The LORD is king;let the earth rejoice;
    let the many isles be glad.
    Clouds and darkness are around him,
    justice and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
    R. Rejoice in the Lord, you just!
    The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
    before the LORD of all the earth.
    The heavens proclaim his justice,
    and all peoples see his glory.
    R. Rejoice in the Lord, you just!
    Light dawns for the just;
    and gladness, for the upright of heart.
    Be glad in the LORD, you just,
    and give thanks to his holy name.
    R. Rejoice in the Lord, you just!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 20:1a and 2-8

    On the first day of the week,
    Mary Magdalene ran and went to Simon Peter
    and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them,
    “They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
    and we do not know where they put him.”
    So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.
    They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter
    and arrived at the tomb first;
    he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.
    When Simon Peter arrived after him,
    he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there,
    and the cloth that had covered his head,
    not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.
    Then the other disciple also went in,
    the one who had arrived at the tomb first,
    and he saw and believed.

    Christmas Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Sir 3:2-6, 12-14

    God sets a father in honor over his children;
    a mother’s authority he confirms over her sons.
    Whoever honors his father atones for sins,
    and preserves himself from them.
    When he prays, he is heard;
    he stores up riches who reveres his mother.
    Whoever honors his father is gladdened by children,
    and, when he prays, is heard.
    Whoever reveres his father will live a long life;
    he who obeys his father brings comfort to his mother.
    My son, take care of your father when he is old;
    grieve him not as long as he lives.
    Even if his mind fail, be considerate of him;
    revile him not all the days of his life;
    kindness to a father will not be forgotten,
    firmly planted against the debt of your sins
    —a house raised in justice to you.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 128:1-2, 3, 4-5

    R. (cf. 1)
    Blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways.
    Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,
    who walks in his ways!
    For you shall eat the fruit of your handiwork;
    blessed shall you be, and favored.
    R.Blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways.
    Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
    in the recesses of your home;
    your children like olive plants
    around your table.
    R.Blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways.
    Behold, thus is the man blessed
    who fears the LORD.
    The LORD bless you from Zion:
    may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life.
    R.Blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Col 3:12-21

    Brothers and sisters:
    Put on, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved,
    heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience,
    bearing with one another and forgiving one another,
    if one has a grievance against another;
    as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do.
    And over all these put on love,
    that is, the bond of perfection.
    And let the peace of Christ control your hearts,
    the peace into which you were also called in one body.
    And be thankful.
    Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,
    as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another,
    singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs
    with gratitude in your hearts to God.
    And whatever you do, in word or in deed,
    do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
    giving thanks to God the Father through him.
    Wives, be subordinate to your husbands,
    as is proper in the Lord.
    Husbands, love your wives,
    and avoid any bitterness toward them.
    Children, obey your parents in everything,
    for this is pleasing to the Lord.
    Fathers, do not provoke your children,
    so they may not become discouraged.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 2:13-15, 19-23

    When the magi had departed, behold,
    the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said,
    "Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt,
    and stay there until I tell you.
    Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him."
    Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night
    and departed for Egypt.
    He stayed there until the death of Herod,
    that what the Lord had said through the prophet might be fulfilled,
    Out of Egypt I called my son
    .
    When Herod had died, behold,
    the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream
    to Joseph in Egypt and said,
    "Rise, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel,
    for those who sought the child’s life are dead."
    He rose, took the child and his mother,
    and went to the land of Israel.
    But when he heard that Archelaus was ruling over Judea
    in place of his father Herod,
    he was afraid to go back there.
    And because he had been warned in a dream,
    he departed for the region of Galilee.
    He went and dwelt in a town called Nazareth,
    so that what had been spoken through the prophets
    might be fulfilled,
    He shall be called a Nazorean
    .
