    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Isaiah 1:10, 16-20

    10Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Give ear to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomor'rah! 16Wash yourselves;make yourselves clean;remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes;cease to do evil, 17learn to do good;seek justice, correct oppression;defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. 18"Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. 19If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;20But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword;for the mouth of the LORD has spoken."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 50:8-9, 16-17, 21, 23

    8I do not reprove you for your sacrifices;your burnt offerings are continually before me. 9I will accept no bull from your house, nor he-goat from your folds. 16But to the wicked God says: "What right have you to recite my statutes, or take my covenant on your lips? 17For you hate discipline, and you cast my words behind you. 21These things you have done and I have been silent;you thought that I was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you, and lay the charge before you. 23He who brings thanksgiving as his sacrifice honors me;to him who orders his way aright I will show the salvation of God!"

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 23:1-12

    1Then said Jesus to the crowds and to his disciples, 2"The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat;3so practice and observe whatever they tell you, but not what they do;for they preach, but do not practice. 4They bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders;but they themselves will not move them with their finger. 5They do all their deeds to be seen by men;for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues, 7and salutations in the market places, and being called rabbi by men. 8But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. 9And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ. 11He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;12whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

  • TUESDAY SECOND WEEK OF LENT 2015:

    Time of Lent.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Is 1:10, 16-20

    Hear the word of the LORD,
    princes of Sodom!
    Listen to the instruction of our God,
    people of Gomorrah!

    Wash yourselves clean!
    Put away your misdeeds from before my eyes;
    cease doing evil;learn to do good.
    Make justice your aim: redress the wronged,
    hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow.

    Come now, let us set things right,
    says the LORD:
    Though your sins be like scarlet,
    they may become white as snow;
    Though they be crimson red,
    they may become white as wool.
    If you are willing, and obey,
    you shall eat the good things of the land;
    But if you refuse and resist,
    the sword shall consume you:
    for the mouth of the LORD has spoken!

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 50:8-9, 16bc-17, 21 and 23

    R. (23b) To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
    “Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you,
    for your burnt offerings are before me always.
    I take from your house no bullock,
    no goats out of your fold.”
    R. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
    “Why do you recite my statutes,
    and profess my covenant with your mouth,
    Though you hate discipline
    and cast my words behind you?”
    R. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
    “When you do these things, shall I be deaf to it?
    Or do you think that I am like yourself?
    I will correct you by drawing them up before your eyes.
    He that offers praise as a sacrifice glorifies me;
    and to him that goes the right way I will show the salvation of God.”
    R. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 23:1-12

    Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying,
    “The scribes and the Pharisees
    have taken their seat on the chair of Moses.
    Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you,
    but do not follow their example.
    For they preach but they do not practice.
    They tie up heavy burdens hard to carry
    and lay them on people’s shoulders,
    but they will not lift a finger to move them.
    All their works are performed to be seen.
    They widen their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels.
    They love places of honor at banquets, seats of honor in synagogues,
    greetings in marketplaces, and the salutation ‘Rabbi.’
    As for you, do not be called ‘Rabbi.’
    You have but one teacher, and you are all brothers.
    Call no one on earth your father;
    you have but one Father in heaven.
    Do not be called ‘Master’;
    you have but one master, the Christ.
    The greatest among you must be your servant.
    Whoever exalts himself will be humbled;
    but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
