    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Philippians 2:1-4

    1So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 131:1-3

    1O LORD, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high;I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. 2But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast;like a child that is quieted is my soul. 3O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 14:12-14

    12He said also to the man who had invited him, "When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your kinsmen or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return, and you be repaid. 13But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, 14and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rom 12:5-16ab

    Brothers and sisters:
    We, though many, are one Body in Christ
    and individually parts of one another.
    Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us,
    let us exercise them:
    if prophecy, in proportion to the faith;
    if ministry, in ministering;
    if one is a teacher, in teaching;
    if one exhorts, in exhortation;
    if one contributes, in generosity;
    if one is over others, with diligence;
    if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

    Let love be sincere;
    hate what is evil,
    hold on to what is good;
    love one another with mutual affection;
    anticipate one another in showing honor.
    Do not grow slack in zeal,
    be fervent in spirit,
    serve the Lord.
    Rejoice in hope,
    endure in affliction,
    persevere in prayer.
    Contribute to the needs of the holy ones,
    exercise hospitality.
    Bless those who persecute you,
    bless and do not curse them.
    Rejoice with those who rejoice,
    weep with those who weep.
    Have the same regard for one another;
    do not be haughty but associate with the lowly.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 131:1bcde, 2, 3

    R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace.
    O LORD, my heart is not proud,
    nor are my eyes haughty;
    I busy not myself with great things,
    nor with things too sublime for me.
    R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace.
    Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted
    my soul like a weaned child.
    Like a weaned child on its mother’s lap,
    so is my soul within me.
    R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace.
    O Israel, hope in the LORD,
    both now and forever.
    R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 14:15-24

    One of those at table with Jesus said to him,
    "Blessed is the one who will dine in the Kingdom of God."
    He replied to him,
    "A man gave a great dinner to which he invited many.
    When the time for the dinner came,
    he dispatched his servant to say to those invited,
    'Come, everything is now ready.'
    But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves.
    The first said to him,
    'I have purchased a field and must go to examine it;
    I ask you, consider me excused.'
    And another said, 'I have purchased five yoke of oxen
    and am on my way to evaluate them;
    I ask you, consider me excused.'
    And another said, 'I have just married a woman,
    and therefore I cannot come.'
    The servant went and reported this to his master.
    Then the master of the house in a rage commanded his servant,
    'Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town
    and bring in here the poor and the crippled, the blind and the lame.'
    The servant reported, 'Sir, your orders have been carried out
    and still there is room.'
    The master then ordered the servant,
    'Go out to the highways and hedgerows
    and make people come in that my home may be filled.
    For, I tell you, none of those men who were invited will taste my dinner.'"
