    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rom 12:9-16

    Brothers and sisters:
    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;
    do not be wise in your own estimation.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Is 12:2-3, 4bcd, 5-6

    R. (6) Among you is the great and Holy One of Israel.
    God indeed is my savior;
    I am confident and unafraid.
    My strength and my courage is the LORD,
    and he has been my savior.
    With joy you will draw water
    at the fountain of salvation.
    R. Among you is the great and Holy One of Israel.
    Give thanks to the LORD, acclaim his name;
    among the nations make known his deeds,
    proclaim how exalted is his name.
    R. Among you is the great and Holy One of Israel.
    Sing praise to the LORD for his glorious achievement;
    let this be known throughout all the earth.
    Shout with exultation, O city of Zion,
    for great in your midst
    is the Holy One of Israel!
    R. Among you is the great and Holy One of Israel.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 1:39-56

    Mary set out
    and traveled to the hill country in haste
    to a town of Judah,
    where she entered the house of Zechariah
    and greeted Elizabeth.
    When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting,
    the infant leaped in her womb,
    and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
    cried out in a loud voice and said,
    "Most blessed are you among women,
    and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
    And how does this happen to me,
    that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
    For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
    the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
    Blessed are you who believed
    that what was spoken to you by the Lord
    would be fulfilled."

    And Mary said:
    "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
    my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
    for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
    From this day all generations will call me blessed:
    the Almighty has done great things for me,
    and holy is his Name.

    He has mercy on those who fear him
    in every generation.
    He has shown the strength of his arm,
    he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
    He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
    and has lifted up the lowly.
    He has filled the hungry with good things,
    and the rich he has sent away empty.
    He has come to the help of his servant Israel
    for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
    the promise he made to our fathers,
    to Abraham and his children for ever."

    Mary remained with her about three months
    and then returned to her home.

  • SATURDAY SIXTH WEEK OF EASTER 2014:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 18:23-28

    After staying in Antioch some time,
    Paul left and traveled in orderly sequence
    through the Galatian country and Phrygia,
    bringing strength to all the disciples.

    A Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria,
    an eloquent speaker, arrived in Ephesus.
    He was an authority on the Scriptures.
    He had been instructed in the Way of the Lord and,
    with ardent spirit, spoke and taught accurately about Jesus,
    although he knew only the baptism of John.
    He began to speak boldly in the synagogue;
    but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him,
    they took him aside
    and explained to him the Way of God more accurately.
    And when he wanted to cross to Achaia,
    the brothers encouraged him
    and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him.
    After his arrival he gave great assistance
    to those who had come to believe through grace.
    He vigorously refuted the Jews in public,
    establishing from the Scriptures that the Christ is Jesus.

    R. God is king of all the earth.
    or:

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 16:23b-28

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Amen, amen, I say to you,
    whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.
    Until now you have not asked anything in my name;
    ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

    “I have told you this in figures of speech.
    The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures
    but I will tell you clearly about the Father.
    On that day you will ask in my name,
    and I do not tell you that I will ask the Father for you.
    For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me
    and have come to believe that I came from God.
    I came from the Father and have come into the world.
    Now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”
