    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Phil 2:12-18

    My beloved, obedient as you have always been,
    not only when I am present but all the more now when I am absent,
    work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
    For God is the one who, for his good purpose,
    works in you both to desire and to work.
    Do everything without grumbling or questioning,
    that you may be blameless and innocent,
    children of God without blemish
    in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
    among whom you shine like lights in the world,
    as you hold on to the word of life,
    so that my boast for the day of Christ may be
    that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
    But, even if I am poured out as a libation
    upon the sacrificial service of your faith,
    I rejoice and share my joy with all of you.
    In the same way you also should rejoice and share your joy with me.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 27:1, 4, 13-14

    R. (1a) The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    The LORD is my light and my salvation;
    whom should I fear?
    The LORD is my life's refuge;
    of whom should I be afraid?
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    One thing I ask of the LORD;
    this I seek:
    To dwell in the house of the LORD
    all the days of my life,
    That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
    and contemplate his temple.
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
    in the land of the living.
    Wait for the LORD with courage;
    be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 14:25-33

    Great crowds were traveling with Jesus,
    and he turned and addressed them,
    "If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother,
    wife and children, brothers and sisters,
    and even his own life,
    he cannot be my disciple.
    Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me
    cannot be my disciple.
    Which of you wishing to construct a tower
    does not first sit down and calculate the cost
    to see if there is enough for its completion?
    Otherwise, after laying the foundation
    and finding himself unable to finish the work
    the onlookers should laugh at him and say,
    'This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.'
    Or what king marching into battle would not first sit down
    and decide whether with ten thousand troops
    he can successfully oppose another king
    advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops?
    But if not, while he is still far away,
    he will send a delegation to ask for peace terms.
    In the same way,
    everyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions
    cannot be my disciple."
