    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Wisdom 7:7-10, 15-16

    7Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me;I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. 8I preferred her to scepters and thrones, and I accounted wealth as nothing in comparison with her. 9Neither did I liken to her any priceless gem, because all gold is but a little sand in her sight, and silver will be accounted as clay before her. 10I loved her more than health and beauty, and I chose to have her rather than light, because her radiance never ceases. 15May God grant that I speak with judgment and have thought worthy of what I have received, for he is the guide even of wisdom and the corrector of the wise. 16For both we and our words are in his hand, as are all understanding and skill in crafts.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 119:9-14

    9How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word. 10With my whole heart I seek thee;let me not wander from thy commandments! 11I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee. 12Blessed be thou, O LORD;teach me thy statutes! 13With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth. 14In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 23:8-12

    8But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. 9And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ. 11He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;12whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

  • WEDNESDAY THIRD WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 10:11-18

    Every priest stands daily at his ministry,
    offering frequently those same sacrifices
    that can never take away sins.
    But this one offered one sacrifice for sins,
    and took his seat forever at the right hand of God;
    now he waits until his enemies are made his footstool.
    For by one offering he has made perfect forever
    those who are being consecrated.
    The Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying:

    This is the covenant I will establish with them
    after those days, says the Lord:
    “I will put my laws in their hearts,
    and I will write them upon their minds,”


    he also says:

    Their sins and their evildoing
    I will remember no more.


    Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer offering for sin.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 110:1, 2, 3, 4

    R. (4b) You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand
    till I make your enemies your footstool.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The scepter of your power the LORD will stretch forth from Zion:
    “Rule in the midst of your enemies.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    “Yours is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor;
    before the daystar, like the dew, I have begotten you.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD has sworn, and he will not repent:
    “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    mk 4:1-20

    On another occasion, Jesus began to teach by the sea.
    A very large crowd gathered around him
    so that he got into a boat on the sea and sat down.
    And the whole crowd was beside the sea on land.
    And he taught them at length in parables,
    and in the course of his instruction he said to them,
    “Hear this! A sower went out to sow.
    And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path,
    and the birds came and ate it up.
    Other seed fell on rocky ground where it had little soil.
    It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep.
    And when the sun rose, it was scorched and it withered for lack of roots.
    Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it
    and it produced no grain.
    And some seed fell on rich soil and produced fruit.
    It came up and grew and yielded thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.”
    He added, “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.”

    And when he was alone,
    those present along with the Twelve
    questioned him about the parables.
    He answered them,
    “The mystery of the Kingdom of God has been granted to you.
    But to those outside everything comes in parables, so that
    they may look and see but not perceive,
    and hear and listen but not understand,
    in order that they may not be converted and be forgiven
    .”

    Jesus said to them, “Do you not understand this parable?
    Then how will you understand any of the parables?
    The sower sows the word.
    These are the ones on the path where the word is sown.
    As soon as they hear, Satan comes at once
    and takes away the word sown in them.
    And these are the ones sown on rocky ground who,
    when they hear the word, receive it at once with joy.
    But they have no roots;they last only for a time.
    Then when tribulation or persecution comes because of the word,
    they quickly fall away.
    Those sown among thorns are another sort.
    They are the people who hear the word,
    but worldly anxiety, the lure of riches,
    and the craving for other things intrude and choke the word,
    and it bears no fruit.
    But those sown on rich soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it
    and bear fruit thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.”
