    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 26:19-23

    19"Wherefore, O King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision, 20but declared first to those at Damascus, then at Jerusalem and throughout all the country of Judea, and also to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God and perform deeds worthy of their repentance. 21For this reason the Jews seized me in the temple and tried to kill me. 22To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass: 23that the Christ must suffer, and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to the people and to the Gentiles."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 117:1-2

    1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us;and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 10:11-16

    11I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees;and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep. 14I am the good shepherd;I know my own and my own know me, 15as the Father knows me and I know the Father;and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold;I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Tb 11:5-17

    Anna sat watching the road by which her son was to come.
    When she saw him coming, she exclaimed to his father,
    “Tobit, your son is coming, and the man who traveled with him!”

    Raphael said to Tobiah before he reached his father:
    “I am certain that his eyes will be opened.
    Smear the fish gall on them.
    This medicine will make the cataracts shrink and peel off from his eyes;
    then your father will again be able to see the light of day.”

    Then Anna ran up to her son, threw her arms around him,
    and said to him,
    “Now that I have seen you again, son, I am ready to die!”
    And she sobbed aloud.

    Tobit got up and stumbled out through the courtyard gate.
    Tobiah went up to him with the fish gall in his hand,
    and holding him firmly, blew into his eyes.
    “Courage, father,” he said.
    Next he smeared the medicine on his eyes, and it made them smart.
    Then, beginning at the corners of Tobit’s eyes,
    Tobiah used both hands to peel off the cataracts.

    When Tobit saw his son, he threw his arms around him and wept.
    He exclaimed, “I can see you, son, the light of my eyes!”
    Then he said:

    “Blessed be God,
    and praised be his great name,
    and blessed be all his holy angels.
    May his holy name be praised
    throughout all the ages,
    Because it was he who scourged me,
    and it is he who has had mercy on me.
    Behold, I now see my son Tobiah!”

    Then Tobit went back in, rejoicing and praising God with full voice
    for everything that had happened.
    Tobiah told his father that
    the Lord God had granted him a successful journey;
    that he had brought back the money;
    and that he had married Raguel’s daughter Sarah,
    who would arrive shortly,
    for she was approaching the gate of Nineveh.

    Tobit and Anna rejoiced
    and went out to the gate of Nineveh
    to meet their daughter-in-law.
    When the people of Nineveh saw Tobit walking along briskly,
    with no one leading him by the hand, they were amazed.
    Before them all Tobit proclaimed
    how God had mercifully restored sight to his eyes.
    When Tobit reached Sarah, the wife of his son Tobiah,
    he greeted her: “Welcome, my daughter!
    Blessed be your God for bringing you to us, daughter!
    Blessed is your father, and blessed is my son Tobiah,
    and blessed are you, daughter!
    Welcome to your home with blessing and joy.
    Come in, daughter!”
    That day there was joy for all the Jews who lived in Nineveh.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 12:35-37

    As Jesus was teaching in the temple area he said,
    "How do the scribes claim that the Christ is the son of David?
    David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said:
    The Lord said to my lord,
    'Sit at my right hand
    until I place your enemies under your feet.'
    David himself calls him 'lord';
    so how is he his son?"
    The great crowd heard this with delight.
