    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Philippians 4:4-9

    4Rejoice in the Lord always;again I will say, Rejoice. 5Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. 6Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do;and the God of peace will be with you.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 103:1-4, 8-9, 13-14, 17-18

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul;and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger for ever. 13As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame;he remembers that we are dust. 17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 18:1-5

    1At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, 3and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Whoever humbles himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me;

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 11:1-2, 8-19

    Brothers and sisters:
    Faith is the realization of what is hoped for
    and evidence of things not seen.
    Because of it the ancients were well attested.

    By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place
    that he was to receive as an inheritance;
    he went out, not knowing where he was to go.
    By faith he sojourned in the promised land as in a foreign country,
    dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs of the same promise;
    for he was looking forward to the city with foundations,
    whose architect and maker is God.
    By faith he received power to generate,
    even though he was past the normal age
    —and Sarah herself was sterile—
    for he thought that the one who had made the promise was trustworthy.
    So it was that there came forth from one man,
    himself as good as dead,
    descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky
    and as countless as the sands on the seashore.

    All these died in faith.
    They did not receive what had been promised
    but saw it and greeted it from afar
    and acknowledged themselves to be strangers and aliens on earth,
    for those who speak thus show that they are seeking a homeland.
    If they had been thinking of the land from which they had come,
    they would have had opportunity to return.
    But now they desire a better homeland, a heavenly one.
    Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God,
    for he has prepared a city for them.

    By faith Abraham, when put to the test, offered up Isaac,
    and he who had received the promises was ready to offer his only son,
    of whom it was said,
    Through Isaac descendants shall bear your name.
    He reasoned that God was able to raise even from the dead,
    and he received Isaac back as a symbol.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Lk 1:69-70, 71-72, 73-75

    R. (see 68) Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel;he has come to his people.
    He has raised up for us a mighty savior,
    born of the house of his servant David.
    R. Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel;he has come to his people.
    Through his holy prophets he promised of old.
    that he would save us from our sins
    from the hands of all who hate us.
    He promised to show mercy to our fathers
    and to remember his holy covenant.
    R. Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel;he has come to his people.
    This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham:
    to set us free from the bonds of our enemies,
    free to worship him without fear,
    holy and righteous in his sight
    all the days of our life.
    R. Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel;he has come to his people.

    Alleluia Jn 3:16

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son,
    so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 4:35-41

    On that day, as evening drew on, Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Let us cross to the other side."
    Leaving the crowd, they took Jesus with them in the boat just as he was.
    And other boats were with him.
    A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat,
    so that it was already filling up.
    Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion.
    They woke him and said to him,
    "Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?"
    He woke up,
    rebuked the wind,
    and said to the sea, "Quiet! Be still!"
    The wind ceased and there was great calm.
    Then he asked them, "Why are you terrified?
    Do you not yet have faith?"
    They were filled with great awe and said to one another,
    "Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?"
