    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14

    1It happened also that seven brothers and their mother were arrested and were being compelled by the king, under torture with whips and cords, to partake of unlawful swine's flesh. 2One of them, acting as their spokesman, said, "What do you intend to ask and learn from us? For we are ready to die rather than transgress the laws of our fathers." 9And when he was at his last breath, he said, "You accursed wretch, you dismiss us from this present life, but the King of the universe will raise us up to an everlasting renewal of life, because we have died for his laws." 10After him, the third was the victim of their sport. When it was demanded, he quickly put out his tongue and courageously stretched forth his hands, 11and said nobly, "I got these from Heaven, and because of his laws I disdain them, and from him I hope to get them back again." 12As a result the king himself and those with him were astonished at the young man's spirit, for he regarded his sufferings as nothing. 13When he too had died, they maltreated and tortured the fourth in the same way. 14And when he was near death, he said, "One cannot but choose to die at the hands of men and to cherish the hope that God gives of being raised again by him. But for you there will be no resurrection to life!"

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 124:2-5, 7-8

    2if it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us, 3then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us;4then the flood would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us;5then over us would have gone the raging waters. 7We have escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers;the snare is broken, and we have escaped! 8Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 5:1-12

    1Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him. 2And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: 3"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7"Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. 8"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11"Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 20:17-27

    From Miletus Paul had the presbyters
    of the Church at Ephesus summoned.
    When they came to him, he addressed them,
    “You know how I lived among you
    the whole time from the day I first came to the province of Asia.
    I served the Lord with all humility
    and with the tears and trials that came to me
    because of the plots of the Jews,
    and I did not at all shrink from telling you
    what was for your benefit,
    or from teaching you in public or in your homes.
    I earnestly bore witness for both Jews and Greeks
    to repentance before God and to faith in our Lord Jesus.
    But now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem.
    What will happen to me there I do not know,
    except that in one city after another
    the Holy Spirit has been warning me
    that imprisonment and hardships await me.
    Yet I consider life of no importance to me,
    if only I may finish my course
    and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus,
    to bear witness to the Gospel of God’s grace.

    “But now I know that none of you
    to whom I preached the kingdom during my travels
    will ever see my face again.
    And so I solemnly declare to you this day
    that I am not responsible for the blood of any of you,
    for I did not shrink from proclaiming to you the entire plan of God.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalm 68:10-11, 20-21

    A bountiful rain you showered down, O God, upon your inheritance;
    you restored the land when it languished;
    Your flock settled in it;
    in your goodness, O God, you provided it for the needy.
    R. Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Blessed day by day be the Lord,
    who bears our burdens;God, who is our salvation.
    God is a saving God for us;
    the LORD, my Lord, controls the passageways of death.
    R. Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 17:1-11a

    Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said,
    “Father, the hour has come.
    Give glory to your son, so that your son may glorify you,
    just as you gave him authority over all people,
    so that your son may give eternal life to all you gave him.
    Now this is eternal life,
    that they should know you, the only true God,
    and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.
    I glorified you on earth
    by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do.
    Now glorify me, Father, with you,
    with the glory that I had with you before the world began.

    “I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world.
    They belonged to you, and you gave them to me,
    and they have kept your word.
    Now they know that everything you gave me is from you,
    because the words you gave to me I have given to them,
    and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from you,
    and they have believed that you sent me.
    I pray for them.
    I do not pray for the world but for the ones you have given me,
    because they are yours, and everything of mine is yours
    and everything of yours is mine,
    and I have been glorified in them.
    And now I will no longer be in the world,
    but they are in the world, while I am coming to you.”
