    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 John 1:5--2:2

    15This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth;7but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.21My little children, I am writing this to you so that you may not sin;but if any one does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;2and he is the expiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 103:1-4, 8-9, 13-14, 17-18

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul;and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger for ever. 13As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame;he remembers that we are dust. 17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 12:44-50

    44And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45And he who sees me sees him who sent me. 46I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47If any one hears my sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him;for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48He who rejects me and does not receive my sayings has a judge;the word that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day. 49For I have not spoken on my own authority;the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what to say and what to speak. 50And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has bidden me."

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 11:25-30

    25At that time Jesus declared, "I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes;26yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will. 27All things have been delivered to me by my Father;and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

  • TUESDAY SECOND WEEK OF EASTER 2014:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 4:32-37

    The community of believers was of one heart and mind,
    and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,
    but they had everything in common.
    With great power the Apostles bore witness
    to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus,
    and great favor was accorded them all.
    There was no needy person among them,
    for those who owned property or houses would sell them,
    bring the proceeds of the sale,
    and put them at the feet of the Apostles,
    and they were distributed to each according to need.

    Thus Joseph, also named by the Apostles Barnabas
    (which is translated Ason of encouragement"),
    a Levite, a Cypriot by birth,
    sold a piece of property that he owned,
    then brought the money and put it at the feet of the Apostles.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 93:1ab, 1cd-2, 5

    R. (1a) The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD is king, in splendor robed;
    robed is the LORD and girt about with strength.
    R. The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    And he has made the world firm,
    not to be moved.
    Your throne stands firm from of old;
    from everlasting you are, O LORD.
    R. The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Your decrees are worthy of trust indeed:
    holiness befits your house,
    O LORD, for length of days.
    R. The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 3:7b-15

    Jesus said to Nicodemus:
    "'You must be born from above.'
    The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes,
    but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes;
    so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."
    Nicodemus answered and said to him,
    'How can this happen?"
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "You are the teacher of Israel and you do not understand this?
    Amen, amen, I say to you,
    we speak of what we know and we testify to what we have seen,
    but you people do not accept our testimony.
    If I tell you about earthly things and you do not believe,
    how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?
    No one has gone up to heaven
    except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man.
    And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
    so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
    so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life."
