  • Saint Thomas the Apostle 2014:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Eph 2:19-22

    Brothers and sisters:
    You are no longer strangers and sojourners,
    but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones
    and members of the household of God,
    built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets,
    with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.
    Through him the whole structure is held together
    and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord;
    in him you also are being built together
    into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 117:1bc, 2

    R. (Mark 16:15) Go out to all the world and tell the Good News.
    Praise the LORD, all you nations;
    glorify him, all you peoples!
    R. Go out to all the world and tell the Good News.
    For steadfast is his kindness for us,
    and the fidelity of the LORD endures forever.
    R. Go out to all the world and tell the Good News.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 20:24-29

    Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve,
    was not with them when Jesus came.
    So the other disciples said to him, "We have seen the Lord."
    But Thomas said to them,
    "Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands
    and put my finger into the nailmarks
    and put my hand into his side, I will not believe."
    Now a week later his disciples were again inside
    and Thomas was with them.
    Jesus came, although the doors were locked,
    and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you."
    Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands,
    and bring your hand and put it into my side,
    and do not be unbelieving, but believe."
    Thomas answered and said to him, "My Lord and my God!"
    Jesus said to him, "Have you come to believe because you have seen me?
    Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed."

  • THURSDAY THRITEENTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2014:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Am 7:10-17

    Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, sent word to Jeroboam,
    king of Israel:
    "Amos has conspired against you here within Israel;
    the country cannot endure all his words.
    For this is what Amos says:
    Jeroboam shall die by the sword,
    and Israel shall surely be exiled from its land."

    To Amos, Amaziah said:
    "Off with you, visionary, flee to the land of Judah!
    There earn your bread by prophesying,
    but never again prophesy in Bethel;
    for it is the king's sanctuary and a royal temple."
    Amos answered Amaziah, "I was no prophet,
    nor have I belonged to a company of prophets;
    I was a shepherd and a dresser of sycamores.
    The LORD took me from following the flock, and said to me,
    'Go, prophesy to my people Israel.'
    Now hear the word of the LORD!"

    You say: prophesy not against Israel,
    preach not against the house of Isaac.
    Now thus says the LORD:
    Your wife shall be made a harlot in the city,
    and your sons and daughters shall fall by the sword;
    Your land shall be divided by measuring line,
    and you yourself shall die in an unclean land;
    Israel shall be exiled far from its land.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 19:8, 9, 10, 11

    R. (10cd) The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    The law of the LORD is perfect,
    refreshing the soul;
    The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
    giving wisdom to the simple.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    The precepts of the LORD are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
    The command of the LORD is clear,
    enlightening the eye.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    The fear of the LORD is pure,
    enduring forever;
    The ordinances of the LORD are true,
    all of them just.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    They are more precious than gold,
    than a heap of purest gold;
    Sweeter also than syrup
    or honey from the comb.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 9:1-8

    After entering a boat, Jesus made the crossing, and came into his own town.
    And there people brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher.
    When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic,
    "Courage, child, your sins are forgiven."
    At that, some of the scribes said to themselves,
    "This man is blaspheming."
    Jesus knew what they were thinking, and said,
    "Why do you harbor evil thoughts?
    Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,'
    or to say, 'Rise and walk?'
    But that you may know that the Son of Man
    has authority on earth to forgive sins"–
    he then said to the paralytic,
    "Rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home."
    He rose and went home.
    When the crowds saw this they were struck with awe
    and glorified God who had given such authority to men.
