    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Sir 42:15-25

    Now will I recall God’s works;
    what I have seen, I will describe.
    At God’s word were his works brought into being;
    they do his will as he has ordained for them.
    As the rising sun is clear to all,
    so the glory of the LORD fills all his works;
    Yet even God’s holy ones must fail
    in recounting the wonders of the LORD,
    Though God has given these, his hosts, the strength
    to stand firm before his glory.
    He plumbs the depths and penetrates the heart;
    their innermost being he understands.
    The Most High possesses all knowledge,
    and sees from of old the things that are to come:
    He makes known the past and the future,
    and reveals the deepest secrets.
    No understanding does he lack;
    no single thing escapes him.
    Perennial is his almighty wisdom;
    he is from all eternity one and the same,
    With nothing added, nothing taken away;
    no need of a counselor for him!
    How beautiful are all his works!
    even to the spark and fleeting vision!
    The universe lives and abides forever;
    to meet each need, each creature is preserved.
    All of them differ, one from another,
    yet none of them has he made in vain,
    For each in turn, as it comes, is good;
    can one ever see enough of their splendor?

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 33:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    R. (6a) By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    Give thanks to the LORD on the harp;
    with the ten-stringed lyre chant his praises.
    Sing to him a new song;
    pluck the strings skillfully, with shouts of gladness.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    For upright is the word of the LORD
    and all his works are trustworthy.
    He loves justice and right;
    of the kindness of the LORD the earth is full.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    By the word of the LORD the heavens were made;
    by the breath of his mouth all their host.
    He gathers the waters of the sea as in a flask;
    in cellars he confines the deep.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.
    Let all the earth fear the LORD;
    let all who dwell in the world revere him.
    For he spoke, and it was made;
    he commanded, and it stood forth.
    R. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 10:46-52

    46And they came to Jericho;and as he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great multitude, Bartimae'us, a blind beggar, the son of Timae'us, was sitting by the roadside. 47And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 48And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent;but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 49And Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." And they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take heart;rise, he is calling you." 50And throwing off his mantle he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51And Jesus said to him, "What do you want me to do for you?" And the blind man said to him, "Master, let me receive my sight." 52And Jesus said to him, "Go your way;your faith has made you well." And immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.
