    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 12:1-4

    1Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us,2looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.3Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.4In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 22:26-28, 30-32

    25From thee comes my praise in the great congregation;my vows I will pay before those who fear him. 26The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied;those who seek him shall praise the LORD! May your hearts live for ever! 27All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD;and all the families of the nations shall worship before him. 29Yea, to him shall all the proud of the earth bow down;before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and he who cannot keep himself alive. 30Posterity shall serve him;men shall tell of the Lord to the coming generation, 31and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, that he has wrought it.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 5:21-43

    21And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him;and he was beside the sea. 22Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Ja'irus by name;and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 23and besought him, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live." 24And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 25And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28For she said, "If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well." 29And immediately the hemorrhage ceased;and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him, immediately turned about in the crowd, and said, "Who touched my garments?" 31And his disciples said to him, "You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, `Who touched me?'" 32And he looked around to see who had done it. 33But the woman, knowing what had been done to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well;go in peace, and be healed of your disease." 35While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler's house some who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?" 36But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe." 37And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. 39And when he had entered, he said to them, "Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping." 40And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41Taking her by the hand he said to her, "Tal'itha cu'mi";which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." 42And immediately the girl got up and walked (she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 43And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

  • MONDAY FOURTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2014:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Sm 15:13-14, 30;16:5-13

    An informant came to David with the report,
    "The children of Israel have transferred their loyalty to Absalom."
    At this, David said to all his servants
    who were with him in Jerusalem:
    "Up! Let us take flight, or none of us will escape from Absalom.
    Leave quickly, lest he hurry and overtake us,
    then visit disaster upon us and put the city to the sword."

    As David went up the Mount of Olives, he wept without ceasing.
    His head was covered, and he was walking barefoot.
    All those who were with him also had their heads covered
    and were weeping as they went.

    As David was approaching Bahurim,
    a man named Shimei, the son of Gera
    of the same clan as Saul's family,
    was coming out of the place, cursing as he came.
    He threw stones at David and at all the king's officers,
    even though all the soldiers, including the royal guard,
    were on David's right and on his left.
    Shimei was saying as he cursed:
    "Away, away, you murderous and wicked man!
    The LORD has requited you for all the bloodshed in the family of Saul,
    in whose stead you became king,
    and the LORD has given over the kingdom to your son Absalom.
    And now you suffer ruin because you are a murderer."
    Abishai, son of Zeruiah, said to the king:
    "Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king?
    Let me go over, please, and lop off his head."
    But the king replied: "What business is it of mine or of yours,
    sons of Zeruiah, that he curses?
    Suppose the LORD has told him to curse David;
    who then will dare to say, 'Why are you doing this?'"
    Then the king said to Abishai and to all his servants:
    "If my own son, who came forth from my loins, is seeking my life,
    how much more might this Benjaminite do so?
    Let him alone and let him curse, for the LORD has told him to.
    Perhaps the LORD will look upon my affliction
    and make it up to me with benefits
    for the curses he is uttering this day."
    David and his men continued on the road,
    while Shimei kept abreast of them on the hillside,
    all the while cursing and throwing stones and dirt as he went.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 3:2-3, 4-5, 6-7

    R. (8a) Lord, rise up and save me.
    O LORD, how many are my adversaries!
    Many rise up against me!
    Many are saying of me,
    "There is no salvation for him in God."
    R. Lord, rise up and save me.
    But you, O LORD, are my shield;
    my glory, you lift up my head!
    When I call out to the LORD,
    he answers me from his holy mountain.
    R. Lord, rise up and save me.
    When I lie down in sleep,
    I wake again, for the LORD sustains me.
    I fear not the myriads of people
    arrayed against me on every side.
    R. Lord, rise up and save me.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 5:1-20

    Jesus and his disciples came to the other side of the sea,
    to the territory of the Gerasenes.
    When he got out of the boat,
    at once a man from the tombs who had an unclean spirit met him.
    The man had been dwelling among the tombs,
    and no one could restrain him any longer, even with a chain.
    In fact, he had frequently been bound with shackles and chains,
    but the chains had been pulled apart by him and the shackles smashed,
    and no one was strong enough to subdue him.
    Night and day among the tombs and on the hillsides
    he was always crying out and bruising himself with stones.
    Catching sight of Jesus from a distance,
    he ran up and prostrated himself before him,
    crying out in a loud voice,
    "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God?
    I adjure you by God, do not torment me!"
    (He had been saying to him, "Unclean spirit, come out of the man!")
    He asked him, "What is your name?"
    He replied, "Legion is my name. There are many of us."
    And he pleaded earnestly with him
    not to drive them away from that territory.

    Now a large herd of swine was feeding there on the hillside.
    And they pleaded with him,
    "Send us into the swine. Let us enter them."
    And he let them, and the unclean spirits came out and entered the swine.
    The herd of about two thousand rushed down a steep bank into the sea,
    where they were drowned.
    The swineherds ran away and reported the incident in the town
    and throughout the countryside.
    And people came out to see what had happened.
    As they approached Jesus,
    they caught sight of the man who had been possessed by Legion,
    sitting there clothed and in his right mind.
    And they were seized with fear.
    Those who witnessed the incident explained to them what had happened
    to the possessed man and to the swine.
    Then they began to beg him to leave their district.
    As he was getting into the boat,
    the man who had been possessed pleaded to remain with him.
    But Jesus would not permit him but told him instead,
    "Go home to your family and announce to them
    all that the Lord in his pity has done for you."
    Then the man went off and began to proclaim in the Decapolis
    what Jesus had done for him;and all were amazed.
